Hi guys, I have an android phone currently running 2.3.4 stock ROM (rooted)

Firstly let me say, I have tried every setting and every combination possible to get this working and I have read all the stickies. The issue is I cannot get Data or MMS to work on Telecom XT network.

Just as a check, I put my 2degrees SIM in the phone, and the android pulled the APN settings down correctly and I could send and receive MMS with no troubles.

When I have my XT sim in the phone, it pulls two APNs (telecomData and telecomMMS) all the settings are correct.

I can send an MMS to myself, it will send ok (a little blue "H" logo shows up in the status bar and I get a message saying data connection to TNZ has been established. The messages arrives in the inbox and when I click download it will either give an error saying message could not be downloaded, or no message at all and just returns the download button.

The same issue for internet, disabling wifi and leaving the 3g data connected I open a browser and get page cannot be displayed.

The same XT sim worked in an old nokia phone for internet and MMS, another 2degrees sim works in the android for internet and MMS.

I am really going crazy here, I deleted all the APNS, and just left the mms, I changed the default APN to have the mms setting, nothing worked. i could always send it but never download it. Have rebooted many times, have factory reset about 3 times.

Would love some ideas!

How old is the sim? I've seen it mentioned on twitter that this is sometimes an issue (i'm probably wrong tho)

Seems like you are on the right track.
 
Damager did a post about this a while back and noticed that the settings he was using were different to those telecom had set up on a phone in the store....also different to what is posted APN settings sticky.

So all I can suggest is to try this set up if you haven't already, was posted in the Telecom page so you might have missed it in your searching....I use it, works fine, never had any problems.

Ok so I tried the exact same settings that Damager had. It gave the same result, could send MMS but not receive. I restarted between changes, still no internet access either. I took off PAP and set to none restarted and still no luck with MMS or internet. ulled the sim out, rebooted, turned off put sim back in, still no dice.

The only extra setting I have that no-one else seems to is the option of IP version, IPV4, IPV6 or IPV4/IPV6 I have tried all of them with no change to results but I would assume it should be IPV4

Is the number you are using ie 021, 022, 027 one that has ever been ported from another carrier? For example if it is say 021 and was originally on Vodafone but has been ported to Telecom, the carriers have to make sure the number is routed to the new carrier.

Do any of the APN lines have asterisks / stars in them? They need to be blank if there is no value to be set for them. 

I have used an HTC Sensation, Samsung Galaxy S II and LG Optimus 3D on Telecom XT for MMS and had no problems with any of them if the APNs were really correct (and not just me thinking they were correct - as happened more than once. )

No they are all blank, here is exactly as it is on my phone now for the MMS APN (I also have an internet APN but won't list that here)

name: telecom MMS
APN: wap.telecom.co.nz  (have tried internet.telecom.co.nz)
proxy: <not set>
port: <not set>
username: <not set>
Password: <not set>
server: <not set>
MMSC: Http://lsmmsc.xtra.co.nz
MMS proxy: 210.55.11.73
MMS Port: 80 (have tried 8080)
MCC: 530
MNC: 05
Authentication type: None (have tried pap and chap)
APN Type: mms (have tried default, internet)
APN protocol: IPv4 (have tried (IPv6)

3G data is turned on, Wifi is turned off

with these settings, no internet access, MMS send but won't download.

Ok made some progress! I have now got mobile internet working, still no MMS download though. The only two things I changed were:
GPRS transfer mode (changed from data prefer to call prefer) not sure if that made any difference.

and under SIM management, there was no mobile number set for Telecom XT, so I entered my own number, and I believe that is what allowed the internet to start working. (Perhaps it uses the phone number as authentication or something?)

anywho.. that still works after a reset which is good.

I tried padding the ip address in the MMS APN but that hasn't helped, I have noticed that some of the settings make a difference in how it fails, ie sometimes it fails straight away, but with other settings it appears to be downloading (HSPA activity indicator goes for maybe 10 seconds) before it tells me its failed.

anymore suggestions? think we are getting close!



my Internet APN is as follows:

name: Telecom Internet
APN: internet.telecom.co.nz
MCC: 530
MNC: 05
APN Type: default,supl,dun
(everything else not set)
