I got a HTC Hero android phone from Canada (850/2100Mhz version) which works happily on TelecomXT (once unlocked), except for one minor issue, while it can send MMS's, it won't download them beyond receiving the notification that they're there.

Rather than berating me for being a bad person and importing a phone (Telecom don't currently offer any android phones and I wanted one, simple as that), if anyone has any suggestions then it'd be appreciated. If you'd rather tell me off then please don't reply, I know the risks, and if it can't/won't work, then so be it.

Current APN settings (defaults from the handset which correlate to the info on this forum)

APN1:
Name: Telecom Internet
APN: internet.telecom.co.nz
Proxy: blank
Port: blank
Username: blank
Password: blank
Server: blank
MMSC: blank
MMS Proxy: blank
MMS port: blank
MMS protocol: WAP 2.0
MCC: 530
MNC: 05
APN type: default

APN2:
Name: Telecom MMS
APN: wap.telecom.co.nz
Proxy: blank
Port: blank
Username: blank
Password: blank
Server: blank
MMSC: http://lsmmsc.xtra.co.nz
MMS Proxy: 210.55.11.73
MMS Port: 80
MMS Protocol: WAP 2.0
MCC: 530
MNC: 05
APN Type: mms

It's a feature that I'd use extremely rarely, but would be nice to have it available. Data works fine and is extremely quick, just receiving multimedia data doesn't work for some reason.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Steve.

Lol, I doubt many people here would tell you off. The number here with Iphones on XT...

Anyway, NealR did a write-up of APNs for XT here:

http://www.geekzone.co.nz/NealR/6498

While he would of course be better to answer this as he wrote the article in the first place, it has listed as a setting "Proxy Secure Port: 8080". As I can't see 8080 anywhere above, that may be the issue. But to be honest I don't really know. If no-one else replies you could try PMing nealr, and he may be able (and hopefully willing!) to help.

Unfortunately there's no option for the Secure proxy, not sure it's needed as I'm pretty sure my cheapy Nokia 3120 Classic doesn't support it, but I'd have to double check that. Might check with Neal later on if no one else has any ideas. May just have to get people to email pictures to me instead :)
