Trying to get mobile broadband working on my U8150.

Looked at the APN settings on here and this is what i currently have:

Name: 2degrees internet

APN: internet

Proxy:

Port:

Username:

Password:

Server:

MMSC:

MMS Proxy:

MMS Port:

MCC: 530

MNC: 24

Authentication Type: None

APN Type: default


I also have "Data enabled" checked in the settings but when i go onto m.2degreesmobile.co.nz i get can not connect and also in quick settings app it tells me APN not configured.

Also tried using setting from the SIM toolkit app with same result.

Last attempt just now i deleted all APNs restared phone and entered the new APN and still getting nothing.

What am i doing wrong?

Which part of the country are you in? If you're not in one of the canopy areas you'll need to enable Data Roaming too.

Try removing '2degrees' from '2degrees Internet' so it's just 'Internet' and make sure you have 'Data Roaming' on.

DroidWall can do what you require but requires root access though
