UK & ROI GPRS settings for Web. WAP, MMS

Setting up Mobile Web connections

Mobile Web connections are used by mobile web browsers, email clients, and a number of third party applications like Weather, Newsreaders and RSS feeds etc.

Some operators do not allow Mobile Web connections, but only have WAP settings (including Virgin Mobile and Tesco Mobile). Others, including O2, don’t allow Pay as You Go customers to access Mobile Web pages, or the Mobile Web APN.

In the top half of the Connections configuration screen, tap Add Connection, or Manage Existing Connections. If adding, give the connection a suitable name, or if editing an existing connection, the name should already be present, with a “Radio Button” by its name. Tap “Edit”.

“Select a Modem” should be set for “Cellular Line (GPRS)” or “Cellular Line GPRS/3G”

Now click “Next” to start inputting the operator specific settings.

After these settings are input, tap “Finish” to save, then OK back to the Start screen. Windows Mobile 5 uses “Intelligent connection switching” and should connect as needed to the GPRS connection. WM2003 users can tap the connection icon in the Title Bar, and select a GPRS connection to open.


Setting up WAP Connections

All mobile operators use WAP settings to access their WAP pages. These still use Pocket Internet Explorer (on WM2003 devices and later) but pages have mainly text content, so load faster, display in a more compact format for small screens, and use much less data. Some operators are now using enhanced WAP services which include some graphics.

Most WAP services will not allow opening of standard web pages, and are constrained to a “ring fenced” set of pre-defined links.

WAP Connection settings are also used by most operators for sending and receiving MMS messages, so before setting up MMS specific settings in Messaging, it is necessary to have a WAP connection configured in Connections.

In the bottom half of the Connections configuration screen (see above for accessing this screen), tap Add a new modem Connection, or Manage Existing Connections. (ignore the other options) If adding, give the connection a suitable name, or if editing an existing connection, the name should already be present, with a “Radio Button” by its name. Tap “Edit”.

“Select a Modem” should be set for “Cellular Line (GPRS)” or “Cellular Line GPRS/3G”

Now click “Next” to start inputting the operator specific settings.

Setting up MMS Connections

Before you start configuring the MMS settings, make sure you have set up a WAP connection to your Mobile Operator as in the preceding instructions. Orange and BT Mobile users will need to add a specific MMS Connection in addition to their Web and WAP connections; all the others use the standard WAP gateway. Make a note of the name you given to your WAP profile- you will need to select this from a drop down list later in the configuration process.

Note that the majority of operators require the user to ring Customer Services to have MMS enabled on their accounts.

General Instructions for all Operators

These instructions are for Windows Mobile 5; earlier versions should have similar configuration screens. MMS settings are configured from the Messaging application. Open Messaging, then tap Menu/MMS Configuration.

The first screen allows you to make settings according to your personal preferences. Once these are selected, tap the “Servers” tab, from where you enter the operator specific settings. If there is already a profile present, you can tap it to see if the settings are correct for your operator. If so, then tap “OK”, and MMS should be operative. If incorrect, tap “Cancel” then at the configuration screen tap “New” and enter the following Operator settings.

Pocket Internet Explorer Homepages

Each operator has a homepage which you can access using Pocket Internet Explorer. Some are optimised for Web content, some for WAP content and some may be standard web pages. The following is a list of those we are aware of. Most will only allow connection to the home network (ie the Orange Homepage is only available via Orange SIM cards)

O2
WAP Homepage: wsp://wap.o2.co.uk
Web Homepage: http://pda.o2.co.uk

T Mobile
WAP Homepage: T-Mobile: t-zones home
Web Homepage: T-Mobile: t-zones home

Vodafone
WAP Homepage: http://wap:1999/vodafone.wml

Orange
WAP Homepage: http://wap.orange.co.uk

Tesco Mobile
WAP Homepage: http://wap.tesco-mobile.com/

Virgin Mobile

Email Settings

As with any Email/messaging application, you can retrieve your emails from any POP3 or IMAP email server, regardless of your ISP (in this case, your mobile operator). For each account, you simply put in the relevant POP3 settings, username and password etc. Most of the mobile operators will only allow this via a full Mobile Web based connection- WAP connections don’t communicate with outside servers. The only general exception to this is if you use an email address from your mobile operator (for example, if you have a name@o2.co.uk email address, you can access this via O2 Web or O2 WAP connections.

Sending emails is not so simple. Again, as with PC based ISP’s, you can generally only send emails via the operator’s own servers. Therefore, the smtp (outgoing mail) setting for your email accounts will need to point to that of the operator.

Most of the operators also allow “Authenticated” email sending, whereby you can send your mail via an Authenticated email service.

The following is a list of the email “Outgoing Mail” settings.

O2
Outgoing mail: smtp.o2.co.uk
Alternative address: mail.o2.co.uk

T Mobile
Outgoing Mail: smtp.t-email.co.uk

Vodafone
Outgoing Mail: smtp.vizzavi.co.uk
Alternative: mail.vodafone.net
Alternative 2: send.vodafone.net

Orange
Outgoing Mail: smtp.orange.net

Virgin, Tesco and BT Mobile do not have any settings listed, as they are WAP based, and do not support email sending (as far as we are aware!)
