Android Gingerbread on WIND Mobile

Not so long ago I purchased a Nexus S for use on WIND Mobile. First off, it’s a great phone and I recommend it to everyone. As well Gingerbread is a must, none of that < 2.3 crap. However I did have a bit of trouble getting my mobile data and MMS messaging working at the same time, so I thought I’d save you some time and post my settings here.

APN Settings

To get everything working probably, you’ll have to create two APNs. First up, go to your APN settings at Settings > Wireless & networks > Mobile networks > Access Point Names.

The first APN you create will be for your data. It should have the following settings:

 

Name:     WIND
APN:      internet.windmobile.ca
MCC:      302
MNC:      490
APN type: default

The second APN will be for your MMS messages. It should have the following settings:

 

Name:      MMS
APN:       mms.windmobile.ca
MMSC:      http://mms.windmobile.ca
MMS proxy: 74.115.197.70
MMS port:  8080
MCC:       302
MNC:       490
APN type:  mms

BOOM! Did you are unimpressed? and now?
