I just got myself a Nokia 225 4G and I am having issues with accessing internet. Anyone who knows the configurations for a dumb phone? 

 

Apparently I am not able to enter an AccessPoint longer then: http://aliasredirect.net/proxy 

 

Thanks,

Dennis

This worked for me, both internet and MMS. Added reply to: https://productioncommunity.publicmobile.ca/t5/Get-Support/Help-setting-up-MMS-and-Data-on-Nokia-331... 

 

Only thing that does not work for me is when I am trying to do a software update. 

 

NOTE!

The MMS Set Home Page is HTTP, do not use HTTPS! <<--- remove the S


Access Points:

  • Leave TELUS and TELUS MMS alone.
  • Add the following:
    • Name: Public Mobile
    • Username: Empty
    • Password: Empty
    • Access Point: sp.mb.com
    • Gateway: Empty
    • Port: 0
    • Set Home Page: Empty
    • DNS Address: Empty
    • Network Type: HTTP
    • IP Type: IPv4
  • Also add:
    • Name: Public Mobile MMS
    • Username: Empty
    • Password: Empty
    • Access Point: sp.mb.com
    • Gateway: 74.49.0.18
    • Port: 80
    • Set Home Page: http://aliasredirect.net/proxy/mb/mmsc
    • DNS Address: 74.49.0.18
    • Network Type: HTTP
    • IP Type: IPv4
  • Click on Public Mobile to activate it.
  • Then go into System -> Messages -> MMS -> SIM Access Point and set to Public Mobile MMS.

If it's a 4G phone then it needs to have APN settings. Here's the thread with the settings that you need to have: https://productioncommunity.publicmobile.ca/t5/Get-Support/How-do-I-set-up-data-APN-on-my-smartphone...

 

Are you able to find where to set these up on your phone?

Here's a website with some additional information about the APN settings on that particular phone:

Oh okay, I understand now. That setting is only necessary for sending MMSes, you should still be able to use internet on the phone without it. Have you entered everything else?

it is difficult, since my settings names does not correspond to the one to the first link you sent 

I have: 
AccessPoint

Gateway

Port

Set Home page

DNS address

Network type

IP type

Set "sp.mb.com" as the AccessPoint, and leave everything else blank. For Network/IP type, you should have a couple options, what are they?

I have one named Telus that has following:
Access Point: sp.telus.com

Gateway: 74.49.0.18

Port: 80

Set Home Page: 
DNS: 0.0.0.0

Network type: HTTP

IP Type: IPV4

All you really need is sp.mb.com as the Access Point Name - have you tried this yet?

 

The Telus access point will likely not work on Public Mobile, though you're welcome to try it.

 

The Gateway and Port settings are needed only for MMS, which you can't use anyway because you can't set up the MMSC on your phone.

 

IP type will have to be IPv4, since PM does not support IPv6 yet. Network type will also have to be HTTP I'm guessing. I can't be for sure because you haven't specified what the available options shown are on your phone. Some phones have a IPv4/IPv6 option for IP Type that is the safest bet.
