Exclamation O2 UK contract Agile and Opera working GPRS settings!

This works for me perfect. Follow these instructions

Go to phone settings, Connection, Access points
Options, New Access point - use default settings
Enter the following in each field:

Connection name
O2 GPRS

Data Bearer
GPRS

Access point name
mobile.o2.co.uk

User name
mobileweb

Prompt password
No

Password
mobile

Authentication
Normal

Homepage
http://pda.o2.co.uk

Do not change advanced settings, leave them as
Phone ip address - automatic
Primary, Second server both as 0.0.0.0
Proxy - none
proxy port - 0


Go back to connection settings, GPRS

GPRS connection
When available

Access point
mobile.o2.co.uk


Now go into Services (where you view wap pages from)
Options, Settings

Default access point
O2 GPRS

Now go into Agile or Opera, and select O2 GPRS as their connection method. If agile says it is gonna use a different one coz its already connected, go into Connection Manager and close the others.

Using these exact settings, i was able to get both Agile and Opera working perfectly on my phone. Before i was having the same problems that are posted all over the internet with few solutions available without intense searching.

NB. you could possibly change certain settings such as the name of access point and home page, i didn't try it so its up to you but remember what ur naming everything so u don't get mixed up.

Remember this connection is a GPRS connection not a GPRS WAP connection which is what u most likely where using before when recieving settings from O2.

(could this possibly be sticky as its a very common problem? thnx)

Since I'm on Pay As You Go, is this illegal?

EDIT: Not illegal, but saps your credit big time.

I don't think the access point will work on PAYG.

well judging by the extreme amounts of requests in forums all over the net, id say that wasn't working for every1, as it wasn't for me.



not being on payg i cant comment on if o2 will allow you to do this. i doubt its illegal, otherwise they deffinately wouldn't allow you to do this.
if your using it for agile, then your only gonna use say a very max of 100kb a day unless ur extreme talking. i use about 30 having it constantly connected with a few short convos here and there.
opera on the other hand is a different story.

Im on PAYG O2 and connect through Basic GSM WAP You can get the settings from the Nokia site or the O2 site. I havent been charged for any use yet as O2 seem to be giving 1Mb of free access. Works very well for me

Think you must be confused a bit, as the basic WAP is charged by mins, think we get 300 free mins on the 300 free txts plan. GPRS is measured by kilobytes we download. But yeah, your right, basic wap works with everything.

But thats not good enough! What are the payandgo settings for gprs that work with agile n opera? are there any?? I can visit wap sites on my current gprs settings, but can only use opera n agile with basic GSM WAP settings. Think its a common problem.

I've posted them before...

Search the forum.

P.S. Opera works on those settings, but Agile doesn't, I actually contacted o2 the other day and they said it does not work at all with o2. Which is a bummer.
