Hmmm. Seeing you are in the USA the best option is to contact your operator there for configuration information.

The easiest way to make sure it is not something wrong in your account though is to borrow a phone from a friend, one that you know can send and receive MMS, insert your SIM card and then send a MMS to your own number. If you receive ok then the problem is with your phone's configuration. If it does not send then the problem is with your account.

Boost Mobile is not a New Zealand brand, actually is a US-based franchise and active there too.

But back on topic...

Editing MMS Settings

1. Select Configurations from the Start menu.

2. Select MMS Settings. The Preferences screen will open. The fields in this screen are explained below.

MMSC Settings

The MMSC (“Multimedia Messaging Service Centre”) settings are normally pre-set to the appropriate values, and in most cases you will not need to change them.

However, if you want to view or edit them, select MMSC Settings from the menu in the Preferences screen. To view or edit the settings for an existing item, select the desired item listed in the MMSC Settings screen and then press the Left Softkey (“Edit”), or select Edit from the menu. The following fields will be available for you to edit: Name, MMSC URL, WAP Gateway, Port, and Max. Sending Size.

Or, to create a new item, press the Right Softkey to open the menu in the MMSC Settings screen, then select New from the menu and fill in the Name, MMSC URL, WAP Gateway, Port, and Max. Sending Size fields.


Use these settings:

paradoxsm: if it asks for "apn","access point name"
live.vodafone.com <---- For a normal WAP or PXT setup [VFNZ GW]
www.vodafone.net.nz <----- For eMail client setup, data through your Laptop [VFNZ Internet]

if it asks for "ip","internet protocol"
172.030.038.003 (don't put in anything for a 3g phone!!!)
172.030.038.003:9201 <---Only rarely and only if above does not work!!!!!!

if it asks for "PORT","Port number"
9201, 09201 (Whatever fits)

if it asks for "home page","start page"
live.vodafone.com

if it asks for "connection type","access method"
GPRS (never CSD)

if it asks for "username","accessname"
MUST be blank, IE: nothing entered

if it asks for "password","passcode"
MUST be blank, IE: nothing entered

if it asks for "MMS server","mms URL", "Multimedia relay", "mms relay", "mmsRelay", "relay server URL"
pxt.vodafone.net.nz/pxtsend
pxt.vodafone.net.nz/pxtsend:9201 <--- IN ENTREMELY RARE CASES ONLY

For the MMS, set the IP's to the same as above.

I don't mean to be rude or annoying but are you sure you are actually in an area with coverage...?

Can you try your sim in another phone to rule out any network issues.

No you dont need an ISP to use your phone, I was more wondering about the flag issue.

Configuration for Windows Mobile Smartphones on Vodafone are on this thread: http://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?ForumId=17&TopicId=4440

About the flag: sometime if you access the Internet from work your connection goes through their servers, which may be located in another country. Also if you connect over CDMA EVDO you may get an IP Address that looks like an American address (such as my flag now).
