KaiOS APN and MMS Settings

Great Neighbour / Super Voisin

Hi Everyone, just got my Public Mobile SIM today, activated the account and can make and receive calls on my Nokia 800 Tough running KaiOS. The strange thing is it automaically detected and applied Data and MMS settings from Bell Mobility. I tried to fumble around with Public Mobile settings in and successfully got Data but no MMS yet. I was wondering if someone else here has a KaiOS based phone that could chime in. Thanks!


So far these are the options I have and this is what I can currently edit on my phone. I've highlighted my changes in Bold.

  • Name: Public Mobile
  • APN:
  • Identifier: 
  • Password: 
  • HTTP proxy host: 
  • HTTP proxy port: 
  • MMS proxy: 
  • MMS port: 80
  • MMSC:
  • Authentication (None, PAP, CHAP, PAP or CHAP)
  • Protocol (IPv4, IPv6, IPv4/IPv6)
  • Roaming Protocol (IPv4, IPv6, IPv4/IPv6)

I'm not sure where the other stuff goes in. Here's the example from Public Mobile:

Thanks in advance!

Hello, I am wondering if you still have this phone and provider. I am unable to send mms and need help reconfiguring these settings. Wondering what worked for you in the end? THank you 

Yes, MMS Proxy/MMSC proxy are the same thing.

Hi @computergeek541, thanks for the suggestion. Is the listed Public Mobile MMSC proxy the same as the MMS proxy listed on my phone? Also, I'm familiar with the APN type on Android phones, just not on KaiOS. There is no option to change it in KaiOS.

Hi @gpixel thanks for the screenshot but that looks like Android no? I'm looking for KaiOS settings. Thanks!

@Keishin You appear to have missed the MMS proxy. Also, I woiuld set an APN type of default,mms

The others settings can pretty much be left at the defaults or blank.
