Mobilink MMS Settings for Android Users

I have already shared the Mobilink GPRS/EDGE settings for Android handsets a while ago, but for some reason I couldn’t get the MMS settings to work.

After getting in contact with Mobilink, I finally figured out the correct MMS settings for Android phones – and they actually work.

Follow the steps below to get your Mobilink MMS working on your Android phone!

  1. Go to Settings > Wireless & networks > Mobile networks >Access Point Names.
  2. Press the ‘Menu’ key and select “New APN”.
  3. Now use the following settings:
    Name: MMS (anything you like)
    Username: Mobilink
    Password: Mobilink
    MMSC: http://mms/
    MMS Proxy:
    MMS Port: 8080
    MMS Protocol:: WAP 2.0 (Only if it asks you)
    MCC: 410 (should be there by default)
    MNC: 01 (use whatever is there by default)
    APN type: mms
  4. You can leave all the other fields blank as they are and save these settings.

These settings actually work and I have tested them myself on my Samsung Galaxy S. I successfully received a MMS from a Zong number (screenshot above).

NOTE: These settings may not work on all Android handsets. Like it didn’t work on my Nexus One. Please let me know on what Android phones these work. Thanks!
