Hello!

I'm using a SAMSUNG SGH-i917 at the moment (because my Galaxy Nexus died), and am trying to get MMS & 3G working.

I've managed to get 3G going by entering the following into the APN settings:

Settings > Cellular > edit apn

APN: wap.telecom.co.nz
User name: <blank>
Password: <blank>
Proxy server/URL: 210.55.11.73
Proxy port: 8080

I've tried sending an MMS, and almost instantaneously get a notification that the message cannot be sent. 

Has anybody got any experience in getting MMS working on the Samsung SGH-i917?

Do you have a Network configuration app in the marketplace for Samsung (LG and Nokia have their own)?

I'm not sure about in Windows, but typically there's a separate section for MMS details.

Windows Phone 7 didn't have a MMS section - needs to be configured through the OEM tool.

I found a Network Profile app in the Marketplace (under Samsung), and the reviews there stated it didn't work for NZ. Looked like it was more for choosing which mobile network to join as well.

That seems ... somewhat of an oversight. Ah well, I guess I'll just continue using Whatsapp!

Thanks anyway :)

Try it anyway as it could have been updated since the last reviews.
