    Hello all,

    I'm running 3.0 on an official unlocked 3G iPhone on Orange UK. I wondered if anyone has the carrier settings for MMS and Tethering? Is there a IPCC for this floating around?

    Many thanks in advance,

    Oli

    MMS messaging isn't supported on the 2G as far as I know and tethering might not be either.

    I'm in the same position. Does anyone know the Orange UK settings for MMS and Tethering. Orange didn't know what to do because it was an iPhone. Thought they could have given me the general settings but apparently they do not have them. Only packaged for each specific phone.

    Thanks in advance.

    Here you go...

    Make sure your phone number is stored +44 at the beggining no 0's etc


    MMSC : mms.orange.co.uk
    Proxy : 192.168.224.10:8080
    APN : orangemms
    Username : Orange
    Password : Multimedia

    leave the others blank...

    How did you get tethering to work?

    Thanks that worked!

    For tethering:

    • Went to http://help.benm.at
    • Go down to Tethering and Internet Settings
    • Click on mobileconfig and enter the APN: orangeinternet leave the others blank
    • Select enable tethering then click generate
    • Install onto the phone (This all has to be done through the Safari on the iPhone)
    • Once this is all done go into Settings > General > Network > Turn tethering on

    I think this is everything i did. If you need any other help, let me know.

    It works really well just pair the phone to your computer and then select 'connect to network'.

    Hi everyone

    I am using a Pwnage/Ultrasn0w unlocked 3G with a postpay Orange SIM. Obviously I am running OS3.0. All works fine except MMS...

    I will check that I have these settings and my number stored as +44 (which I think I have) but when I go into Camera Roll there is no 'MMS' option and when I create a new message in Messages the camera icon is not next to the text input box. Is this similar to what you guys saw before you got the settings entered correctly?

    Any tips or wake up slaps appreciated.

    May be an obvious question but have you restarted your phone since you put the settings in? I had to in order to get it to work.

    dont quite follow the instructions given above, when i follow that link it just takes me to a german website which says some stuff about a beta release of an autoconfiguration thing, but not much in the way of details on how to use it !

    I'm very sorry for reviving this thread, but I am having problems tethering my iPhone 3G running 3.1.3 (IOS 4 sucks on the 3G!!!)
    I purchased the phone under contract from orange, and I have jailbroken it as well but I have used http://help.benm.at/help.php and gone to the custom generator using:-

    APN: orangeinternet
    Carriername: Orange

    I have tried putting username and password as user, pass or leaving them both blank but every time I go to the network menu and select tethering I get a message pop up on the screen saying

    Can anyone help?!

    Tethering is enabled, but you need to have the package with orange.

    Yeah I figured that bit, others have managed to use tethering just fine without getting a package from orange and I was hoping someone would know how!

    Just to clear a few things up.

    Orange mobile Internet uses the APN:
    orangeinternet

    Orange Tethering (iphone only), ipad, dongle Internet use the APN:
    consumerbroadband

    To use this, you must have an ORANGE DATA ACTIVATOR on your account, and an ORANGE TETHERING PLAN on your account also.

    You can request a free 1 month trial, however I wouldn't recommend doing so yet! As I am working on something to get around this silly procedure of adding stuff to your account, if you request it before ive got my workaround sorted, you may not be able to tether using your inclusive data bundle.

    Bare with me guys, hopefully i should have my masterplan sorted by the beginning of December.

    For MMS you should have it working with the latest orange carrier update.

    Visual Voicemail is in the pipe works, but there is no date set yet.

    Roaming onto TMobile will also be able to use 3G as of January '11
