I bit the bullet and bought a Google Nexus One mobile last week and am in the process of writing a review of my thoughts since moving from the iPhone 3gs…
Until then I thought I’d post a few of the Nexus One o2 settings that you need in order to get the phone up and running on the 3G network in the UK and together with MMS settings for text messages.
Being a US phone the APN settings don’t come already input so I had to dig around for these and HTC were also rather helpful which was great.
Power on Nexus One Phone and follow the below instructions:
Tap ‘Wireless Controls’.
Tap ‘Mobile networks’.
Tap ‘Access Point Names’.
Tap ‘Add APN’
Now key in the following settings:
Name: mobile web
Proxy: *LEAVE BLANK*
Port: *LEAVE BLANK*
Server: *LEAVE BLANK*
MMSC: *LEAVE BLANK*
MMS Proxy: *LEAVE BLANK*
MMS Port: *LEAVE BLANK*
APN Type: default
Tap ‘Add APN’
Name: O2 MMS
MMS port: 8080
APN type: mms
You’re all done now pretty much. Keep tapping ‘Back’ until you’re back at your Home screen then restart your phone and you should now have G/E/3G/H internet access as well as the ability to send/receive MMS.
There is a problem with MMS on Android that limits image resolution to 160×120 but if we all keep pestering o2 to update their list of phones and compatibilities this should be solved soon enough.
