Hi all,

Can anyone tell me please what APN settings I need for my 3 broadband sim card? I have an HTC Desire which was originally on O2, now unlocked, I put the 3 sim card in and it won’t connect(to internet) without the APN?

I have already tried:

Name: 3
APN: three.co.uk
Proxy:
Port:
Username:
Password:
Server: 3MMS
MMSC:
MMS Proxy: http://mms.um.three.uk:10021/mmsc
MMS Port: 8799
MMS Protocol: WAP 2.0
MCC: 234
MNC: 20
APN Type: Default

Cheers,

Happysteveo.

Use these settings:

Name: 3
APN: three.co.uk
Proxy:
Port:
Username:
Password:
Server:
MMSC: http://mms.um.three.co.uk:10021/mmsc
MMS Proxy: mms.three.co.uk
MMS Port: 8799
MMS Protocol: WAP 2.0
MCC: 234
MNC: 20
APN Type:

Thank you so much. Randomly my phone displayed no network attachment. By doing a little research i realised it was something to do with the APN settings. Found this and i really appreciate it. Thank you!

thank you soo much :D
#20
Thanks so much.
If it doesn't work on a htc desire you may have to reset all setting first. I will delete everything from your phone so make sure you back up all files first on a pc or sd card. I had to do it, but now it works like a dream again! Wahhoooo

Happysteveo you are the best been trying for weeks to get mms working on my 3 contract with my HTC desire and you have done it mate I wish I could bye u a beer 3 them selves could not do but u have legend top man
#32
These settings don't work on my S6. These are the same settings you get from the Three website and you can enter them manually or for most modern phones can have them sent via SMS for installation.

I dont know what to do. Three are useless.

thank you so much for your help, it works on htc one too !!!
