Do you have a manual for this?

I found this post on a whirlpool forum (i've editted it for vfnz settings).

Try these settings and then try sending a pxt. When you use pxt for the first time on a phone you have to send a pxt first before you can recieve.

Also check if you can send PXT from another phone using your sim.


Go to :

1. Messages
2. MMS
3. Message Settings
4. Server Profile (click any Profile , 7 , 8 , 9 etc and rename after if u want )
5. Ok > Edit Profile
6. Edit > Homepage > or try just ""
7. Data Account > Account 8 (ill explain why in a sec)
8. Connection Type : HTTP
9. Go back and go Activate Profile , otherwise rename it then Activate.

- Okay thats that , now do this ..

10. Go to Main Menu (Home) and go SERVICES , The (E) internet icon.
11. Data Account > GPRS
13. APN > EDIT > " " .. no HTTP's
14. User Name : Leave empty if possible else try "usr" yes USR not USER.
15. Password : Leave empty if possible else try " 0000 " thats four zero's
16. Auth Type : SECURE .
