I cannot send or receive mms messaged on my new Easyfone flip phone. 

 

It looks as though I need to set up a network account and I have input the following which is not working. Below are the only options I have for setting up a network:

 

Username: Telus 

Password: Blank

Access Point: sp.telus.com

Gateway: 74.49.0.18

Port:8799

Rename: TELUS SP

Homepage: http://aliasredirect.net/proxy/mmsc

DNS Address: 075.153.171.122  (I can only enter numbers here and its grouped in 3 ex. - 000.000.000.000)

Network Type: Set to HTTP (only other option would be WAP)

 

 

I am not sure what else I can do. Has anyone else had t his problem?

 

Other notes: 

I have date turned to always on. 

 

Is there another setting I am missing or have I set the network up wrong.

According to this page there are 2 different port settings (Port and MMS Port) and they have different values. The 8799 value is only for the MMS Port.

According to this site, try changing the port to 80 or leaving it blank as indicated on the above link. I suspect blank = 80 as it's the most common.

You are welcome.

How do you like the Easyfone? I'm thinking about getting one for my father.
