I have two HTC Magic phones. One is on Vodafone and the other is on a Telecom XT pre-pay SIM.. Despite lacking the 850MHz frequency, the Magic on Telecom fine in Auckland in all respects......except for PXTs. I can receive PXTs on it - they go to a "lightsurf" web site.....but i can't download the pics to the phone. I get a message saying the image format isn't compatible.

Sending PXTs to a Vodafone number doesn't work at all. I haven't tried a Telecom number.

I have the "TelecomMMS" APN set up on my phone, as well as the TelecomDefault, TelecomContent and TelecomData APNs.

Has anyone got this going? I thought I had it working at one point.....but now can't recall whether I actually did or not. I tend not to remember when things 'just work" and notice when they stop. It isn't working now.

Not strictly an android question, but this forum is most likely to have people who have used the HTC Magic and android on Telecom XT.

You only need 2 APNs for Telecom, 1 for data and 1 for MMS;

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


I'm _guessing_ that the settings on the Magic are the same as on the HTC Hero (virtually the same phone/OS). I can use data fine and I can _send_ MMS's fine, but it doesn't like receiving them. I've no idea why as it downloads them fine with a 2Degrees SIM and their MMS APN.

See if you have any luck with those settings anyway.
