Easy BYOD GSM (tmo) port and APN (Android)

Easy BYOD GSM (tmo) port and APN (Android)

Postby Krisx58 » Tue Jul 24, 2012 4:59 pm

from an idea stolen off howard forums... :mrgreen:

Phone is tmobile Prism (Huawei U8651T) android 2.3.6.
This phone was released May 2012, and this idea may only work for recent phones. Bitch to ME, NOT ST!!!!!!!
I deleted all but original 2 APNs: DATA and MMS . I used 2 APNs only because the original default APNs were these 2. You could easily use one. Then APN Type would be default,supl,fota,mms or default,supl,mms
I changed a few lines as noted below:
I am not perfect - sorry if typos:

DATA:
Name Straight Talk Data <-ST everything else left from T-Mobile DATA APN
APN wap.tracfone <-ST
Proxy <not set> (<ns> below)
Port 8080 <-ST
Username <ns>
Password <ns>
Server <ns>
MMSC <ns>
MMS proxy <ns>
MMS port 0 (zero)
MCC 310
MNC 260
Authentication Type none
APN type default,supl,fota < I added fota
APN protocol IPv4

MMS:
Name Straight Talk MMS <-ST everything else left from T-Mobile MMS APN
APN wap.tracfone <-ST
Proxy (<ns> below)
Port 0
Username <ns>
Password <ns>
Server <ns>
MMSC http://mms.tracfone.com <-ST
MMS proxy <ns>
MMS port 0 (zero)
MCC 310
MNC 260
Authentication Type none
APN type mms

I did not have to restart phone. tested with geekaphone and got my usual good speeds.
After restarting, about/status/ shows phone number and t-mobile network, HSPDA, in other words, what I had under tmo, and what I expected. All is well. So easy! Thanks ST!!!
