Managed to get MMS working in the end......the settings I used are as follows

First Created New Connection called 3 (Set this as default connection for internet etc.) I just use this one connection, all my email accounts, Laptop wireless modem etc. can connect through this.
Modem - Cellular Line (GPRS , 3G)
Username - leave blank
password - leave blank
Domain - leave blank

No need to do advanced settings. Click finish.

IN MESSAGING.....Menu > Tools > Options Click *MMS

Select servers tab.....Create new server called 3 MMS
Gateway -
Port - 8799
Server address -
connect via - My ISP
Size Limit - 200K
Wap version - 2.0

These settings work OK for both sending and receiving MMS

Hope you find this usefull.....

Just bought bought the TyTN on vodafone but 3g is very patchy here. Put by 3 sim in and works fine and have managed to setup intenet access with your help - works great BUT my push email is not. This 3 OfficeMail which is the same as offered by Seven. I know how to configure OfficeMail and setup but I think I may need to setup elsewhere.

Is it possible that a port needs opening up? Or would there be different setting to set up. I notice that in the E61 (where it is working great) there is initAccess with Databearer of initAcess,

Authentication of secure. also homepage it has

Put this in also but still does not work for push email.

Many thanks for your help, Rupert

Hi Jim

Steve''s advice on setting up for 3 works great. You should be fine if you follow his advice.

Kind regards, Rupert

How do I set the gprs connection as my default setting for the internet? Can I tell my email client to use this connection to send/receive email?

Finally can I overide these settings when i''m at home to use the wifi?

Many Thanks

Further to my last message I have since read my terms and conditions from Three. Not only does it say I can only use the simcard in Three Locked phones, but that using it in a phone that is not provided by Three may damage that phone so it can''t be repaired.

Does anybody have any experience of this?

CHECK your regional settings as dumb as this sounds, i found when i set my phone up it defaulted to austraila english so it was trying to connect to the other side of the world lol. And as soon as i popped it to english (Great britan) it worked flawlessly, quite upsetting really lol.

Hope this helps?

Hi, I followed the above instructions, but still no luck getting my dext to work with three's (hutchison) 3g network.  My phone seems to have more fields than are covered in the guides.  Does anyone know what I should be typing into all the following?  I've bracketed the things I think are right.


 [ ]





Authentication protocol



[ ]

MMS proxy


MMS port



APN type
