    anyone successfully using this on o2 in the UK?

    Ive tried so many times to get it to work but seems to always fail with the proxy settings...

    if someone could post the correct full settings, i would be very grateful.

    the settings listed by the developer and on other websites does not work on o2....


    thanks v

    Hi Vince. I'm on o2 as well. I can send(I know that because my balance goes down!), but nothing arrives at the other end, and I can receive successfully. You might like to look at my thread here:

    OK!!! I've just successfully sent an MMS on o2 PAYG by changing the "o" in "o2" as in here: MMSC: mmsc.mms.o2.co.uk:8002, to a capital "O" to read "O2".

    I got the standard Apple "swoooosh" as it was sent, and the sent message appeared in the SwirlyMMS message list.

    You need to contact O2 Customer Services and ask them to provision your account for MMS - basically it tells their systems to forward the MMS data to the phone rather than send the SMS telling you to go to the website and view it there.

    Warning: If you have your account provisioned for MMS but do NOT have an MMS capable phone (as the iPhone is as standard without SwirlyMMS) then when you are sent an MMS nothing happens at the phone end as it does not understand the data from O2 and you get no warning, notification or message.

    As for settings, I am on a pay monthly contract and use these:

    *****
    MMSC and Proxy Server Settings
    MMSC: http://mmsc.mmsc.o2.co.uk:8002
    Proxy: 193.113.200.195:8080

    MMS-specific APN Settings
    APN: wap.o2.co.uk
    Username: o2wap
    Password: password

    Image size: Medium
    *****

    I can confirm that these work and allow me to send messages (I just sent one from my iPhone to my Orange UK phone). SwirlyMMS only sent the first 17 characters of the "Title:" field (or Orange UK truncated it at that point, one or the other) and as I cannot find a Body or Message box you are limited to sending pictures and a few characters of words from what I can see.

    so o2 were meant to swicth on mms yesterday. I can still send mms but cannot receive them. I still get the same o2 normal text to download the mms online.

    Any ideas, do you think mms has not been swicthed on? or something else?. I know that i cannot see the Edge settings under data roaming etc like some people so cannot check the settings but as i can send i think they are ok?

    Thanks

    so called o2 they say they can see my sim in a iPhone and they cannot senfd mms settings/make provision for mms as their system will not give them that option. He told me to get a mms compatiable phone and then it will automatically be picked up by o2 and mms swithced on...


    Anyone else know a way around this, would sticking the sim in another phone sending a mms and then swopping back sort it ??

    OK, I'm on o2 PAYG, my settings in the SwirlyMMS settings are:
    MMSC: mmsc.mms.O2.co.uk:8002
    Proxy: 193.113.200.195:8080

    Note: If I put in http://, it doesn't work. Also note the capital"O" in O2, as it doesn't work with a small "o".

    My APN settings are:
    APN: payandgo.o2.co.uk
    Username: payandgo
    Password: password

    I'm using SwirlyMMs 0.3.8

    Got MMS working on UK O2!!!!!!!!!!!

    I'm using a 16gb iphone 1.1.4 on an O2 iphone contract. I just messed about with some setting i found on the net & finally got it working! Here are the working settings!

    MMSC = mmsc.mms.o2.co.uk:8802
    PROXY = 193.113.200.195:8080
    APN = wap.o2.co.uk
    USERNAME = o2wap
    PASSWORD = password

    As MMS is not included in my contract i dont know how this will effect my monthly bill! Let me know if you get it working!

    ok so i have the application now, but i'm on an o2 monthly contract and was wondering if anyone else was who could tell me about the price. I don't fancy having extra charges on top of the bill i'm paying so if you've used this application before and have been billed already please let me know :)

    1 MMS == 4 SMS from your free bundle, 25p per MMS thereafter

    If you have a bundle of free text messages (which you will have as all contracts have them now) then it is 4 text message units per MMS (i.e. sending one MMS reduces your remaining number of text messages by four). After you've used all your free text message bundle then it is 25p per MMS.
