Do you want to enable your free O2 sim for wap, gprs or picture messenging... in your new Mobile phone?
Then get the settings sent direct to your phone from the O2 website...
You choose your phone from the drop down menu prior to sending the settings... :Dhttp://www.o2.co.uk/productsservices/ota2/select/0,,184,00.html?Phone_Settings=Phone+Settings+%0D%0A+picture+messaging+%0D%0A+O2+Active%2C+GPRS%2C+WAP
>>Choose your settings Here<<
Last year I purchased a second user T-mobile Nokia 3510i phone, I unlocked it & used one of those free O2 talkalot sims... I then found that I couldn't access the net as it only had T-mobile settings, so I visited the O2 site... the task couldn't have been made easier...
There are 4 sets of settings available...http://flash.o2.co.uk/ota/images/icon_o2active.gif
1) O2 Active (includes GPRS and Media Messaging)
O2 Active, allows you instant access to a variety of ringtones, games, and up to date news, sport and entertainment. http://flash.o2.co.uk/ota/images/icon_gprs.gif
2) GPRS WAP (without Media Messaging)
'Always on', high-speed data connection. Charged per Megabyte (MB) of data (the amount of data you download irrespective of how long you are online) http://flash.o2.co.uk/ota/images/icon_wap.gif
3) Basic WAP
Access to the Mobile Internet via a mobile phone call. You are charged for the length of the call according to the tariff you are on. http://flash.o2.co.uk/ota/images/icon_arrow.gif
4) If you require Mobile Web email settings
* If your phone does not accept settings from a text message, you will be transferred to a set of instructions that describe how to enter the settings yourself.
Hope this simplifies the whole process for many of you out there...
P.S. The 3510i has around 8 slots available for saving different network sets of settings, this number varies between revisions of the internal software...
