I decided to trial my Motorola Defy MD525 Android 2.2 Smartphone on Skinny particularly to access the lower cost data offerings. My smartphone is a NZ sourced TNZ Android unit set up for XT (Quad band), so I assumed that all would be ok for use on Skinny. It configured and worked fine for Voice and text once you ensure it is sert for 3G or Automatic.
However after manually setting it up with the Skinny APN for mobile data on the device I thought all would work fine, but not so! I called Skinny customer service who were friendly, responsive and sought to see if there was a fix for this. Skinny called me back and we ran my IMEII into there portal - this came up as unsupported (so I should have done this before setting up the SIM).
The Defy works fine on 2degrees and of course XT native on TNZ mobile. I asked Skinny to keep me posted if they can locate a fix, so back to 2Degrees.
Looks like a Defy Moto Droid OS problem to me?? A bit like the Iphone 4S on Skinny that has beenb patched for use on this MVNO network. A bit of a pity really methinks as it is an XT friendly device, perhaps Moto can release a patch for Skinny!
Wondering if anyone has come across this issue and or found a fix?
