DATA & MMS SETTINGS

Getting Data & MMS settings to work on your own device.

Thank you for choosing PTEL Mobile! Now that you've received your SIM card and inserted it into your unlocked GSM device, it's time to get the Data and MMS settings programmed.

Simply follow these step-by-step instructions to program the data and mms settings on your phone, and you'll be on your way.

Choose your device:
Android™
iPhone
Windows Phone
Feature Phone

Android_


These settings will work for devices running Android™ 1.6 and up.

Before getting started, make sure your WiFi is turned OFF, and the phone is not in Airplane Mode.

  1. Go to 'Settings' on your phone
  2. Go to 'Wireless & Networks'
  3. Go to 'Mobile Network'
  4. Go to 'Access Point Name'
  5. Press 'Menu' and select 'New APN'
  6. Enter the following settings (case sensitive):
    1. Name: PTEL Mobile
    2. APN: wholesale
    3. Proxy: [leave blank]
    4. Port: [leave blank]
    5. Username: [leave blank]
    6. Server: [leave blank]
    7. MMSC: http://wholesale.mmsmvno.com/mms/wapenc
    8. MMS Proxy: [leave blank]
    9. MMS Port: [leave blank]
    10. Authentication Type: [leave blank]
    11. APN Type: blank or internet and MMS
  7. Press menu and select 'Save'
  8. Make sure you select the 'PTEL Mobile' profile you just created

Next, you will need to remove the other APN's that are listed on your phone. To do that, just select each APN, press the menu button, then select 'Delete APN'. Delete all of the APN's until PTEL Mobile is the only one left.

Some Android™ phone models may not allow you to delete all of the APN's, or delete the default APN. So you may want to visit the Google Play Store and download an APN manager app. There are plenty of great free ones available.

Last Step, restart your phone and you're all set.

Quick Tip_ Save battery on your Android™ device by connecting to WiFi networks whenever possible. This will help your battery last longer when you're surfing the web on your device.

  3. Tap "Cellular Data Network"
  4. Proceed to step 5 above.

Some things to keep in mind when using your iPhone on PTEL Mobile. You may not get 3G data speeds in all markets. Since the iPhone does not support the 1700MHz band, which we use to provide 3G, there are some markets in which the iPhone will have EDGE data speeds. Also, you will be able to send MMS from your iPhone, however, receiving MMS may require additional programming, which can be found through a simple search on the Internet.

Last Step, restart your phone and you're all set.

Quick Tip_ Save battery on your iPhone by connecting to WiFi networks whenever possible. This will help your battery last longer when you're surfing the web on your device.
