    HTC DESIRE / TESCO MOBILE INTERNET SETTINGS

    ★Used Tweaker app and problem solved in 30 seconds ★

    Would be grateful of any help
    I have an O2 branded Desire with which I am now using the Tesco £10 Sim offer in it .
    The problem is that the APN settings recieved from Tesco Mobile do not let me recieve mobile internet or MMS.,even though I have correctly installed the correct settings. Neither O2, HTC or Tesco can solve my problem . HTC checked my phone and no problems at all..so must be a software or config issue.
    Has anyone else had this problem and how did u resolve the issue ?
    I USED THE FOLLOWING SETTINGS FROM TESCO

    WAP

    there is not a software problem on it. it is that the O2 apn settings are conflicting with the tesco settings. since you device is O2 branded it is listed with O2 apn settings mainly. if you can debrand the device (i am not saying to root though that would be all high and mighty) this may fix the problem.

    instructions on debranding to WWE software can be found on the internet such as xda-developers
