johnr: Get rid of the fake iphone and get a real one


I think what John is trying to say is that although we can certainly help you with a real iPhone, a fake one could look like anything and so we have no idea what to do in order to configure it. All I can tell you is that you need to ensure the settings (however you put them into this device) are:

APN: mms
WAP Gateway/Proxy: 118.148.1.118 port 8080
MMSC: http://mms.2degreesmobile.net.nz:48090/
Max message size 300000 bytes

You will probably also find it helpful to have data roaming and autodownload while roaming enabled if you spend more than a trivial amount of time outside 2degrees coverage.

Sorry I cannot be more specific than that, but the Chinese look-a-likes are all different and all have bespoke OSes that all look & work differently.

I'm sure you can. But why would you?
