OTA Settings for OTA handsets

There are certain mandatory parameters for GPRS/MMS settings which needs to configure in every handset to enable it for GPRS/MMS servcies. These parameters are;

GPRS Settings

APN = imis ( in small letters)
Data Bearer = GPRS
Proxies = Enable
IP Address/Proxy Address =
Port No./Proxy Port No. = 9201 ( for WAP 1.0 handset ), 8080 (for WAP 2.0 handset)

GPRS Modem Settings

GPRS = When Needed
APN = internet (in small letters)
Out of the above, some parameters which are optional for some handsets like Proxies and Port No. These depend upon the handset capability itself. In GPRS settings, the profile name or the connection name can be any thing. Normally for WAP, we keep IdeaFreshGPRS and for MMS, it is IDEA_MMS. These GPRS settings can be at different places in different handsets e.g. in Nokia, this is at Services, in Samsung, this is at FunBox, in Sony Ericsson, in Data Connection/Wap Browing..and so on. And the MMS settings are normally at the Multimedia Message Settings part. So you need to find the proper place to feed in the right settings at right place.
