    Default Data settings for Consumer Cellular

    How can I set web APN on Galaxey S2 for Consumer Cellular?

    They are as follows;

    Name: US - Consumer Cellular
    APN: att.mvno
    MMS Protocol: WAP 2.0
    Auth Type: PAP
    APN Type: default, supl

    My problem is the S2 does not have a place to enter MMS Protocol and no "supl" APN type.
    The phone also will not save an Access Point unless MCC is set to 310 and MNC is set to 410.

    Hey Magoo,

    You probably already have this figured out but I just figured it out and have my Google Galaxy Nexus working on Consumer Cellular.

    I published a google doc on it at https://docs.google.com/document/pub...9lB4xfiKM7FjXw .

    Hope this helps.

    Hey Blittrell,

    I hadn't been into my Android account for a while and saw your response. Actually I never have got my CC Web to work on my Galaxy Sll, I'm a Novice so most of this is over my level of understanding.

    Not sure where or how to find and enter SMSC number. What is imei number?

    I went to CC web site and found their setting and also tried an App from Tweakker to set them up as well. Both agreed on the setting but neither worked. Customer Support tells me CC does not support the Galaxy Sll but I can't imagine it won't work if set up right. From what you mentioned I may need to try a different service rep.

    The setting below I got from CC and Tweakker are different then the ones you show and like them my phone dosent' have spots for some of the setting required. No option for APN protocol setting.

    Service Name MMS Web
    Proxy Address prox.mvno.ccmobilweb.com blank
    Proxy Port 80 blank
    Proxy Push Disabled Enabled
    Auth Type Secure Secure
    User Name blank blank
    Password blank blank
    Access Point att.mvno att.mvno
    Homepage http://mmsc.cingular.com http://mmsc.cingular.com

    The setting options on the phone are

    Name
    APN
    Proxey
    Port
    User Name
    Password
    Sever
    MMSC
    MMSproxey
    MMSport
    MCC
    MNC
    Auth Type
    APN type

    As you can see my phone does not have a spot for a Proxy Push setting and from the best I can tell I should be able to set both the Web and MMS setting in the same APN.

    Any suggestion or additional guidance you could give me?

    Thanks Magoo

    This thread is old but I will reply anyway.

    I have an unlocked Samsung Galaxy Ace running on Consumer Cellular. Voice, sms, mms, and internet all function properly.

    Below are the APN configurations provided by Consumer Cellular tech support.

    They configured two APN's, one for internet, one for mms:

    ------------------------------------------
    Name: ConsumerCellular
    APN: att.mvno
    Proxy: 66.209.11.32
    Port: 80
    User Name: not set
    Password: not set
    Server: not set
    MMSC: http://mmsc.cingular.com
    MMS proxy: not set
    MMS port: not set
    MCC: 310
    MNC: 410
    Authentication type: PAP
    APN type: internet
    -----------------------------------------------------
    Name: ConsumerCellular
    APN: att.mvno
    Proxy: not set
    Port: not set
    User name: not set
    Password: not set
    Server: not set
    MMSC: http://mmsc.cingular.com
    MMS proxy: 66.209.11.32
    MMS port: 80
    MCC: 310
    MNC: 410
    Authentication type: PAP
    APN type: mms
    --------------------------------------------------------

    The fields in these configurations exactly match the fields you list for your phone. I assume that this is because both phones run the same android version
    (which for my phone is Gingerbread v2.3.6).

    I also note that the s/w in my phone will allow me to set one APN to do both internet and mms, but I have not tried this.

    Here are the settings that worked for a Motorola Defy running android 2.2.2. It should work for most android phones. Consumer cellular tech support was pretty useless. They would send me the settings and nothing would work. I use the following:
    Name: Consumer cellular
    apn: att.mvno
    Proxy: proxy.mvno.ccmobileweb.com
    Port: 80
    user name: not set
    paswd: not set:
    server: http://mmsc.cingular.com
    MMSC: http://mmsc.cingular.com
    MMS Proxy: 66.209.11.32
    MMS Port: Not set
    MCC: 310
    MNC: 410
    Authentication Type:PAP or CHAP

    I called CC support today,
    I was told it was unusual to get MMS to work when you buy a non-consumer cellular phone. Using the above information, I was able to get my phone to use internet and MMS.

    There are some possible permutations that might make different phones work:
    Firstly, I can't use "internet" in the apn type, or it fails. I have to use "default" for it to work. So if you are entering the information from csventres post, you may have to use a different word in the apn type or it wont work. I also seem to be able to type "default,mms" and now both internet and MMS work. No spaces just type "default,mms" and save that.
    Secondly, I have used both of the above posted APN data in two separate APN entries and that made it work (I used csventres's information for internet and yamillrx's for MMS). I may not have to put them both in, but since I have been fiddling with this for a long time, and it now works, I decided I wouldn't mess it further!

    Thanks guys!

    I ended up using yamillrx's settings and they work superbly. Although I ordered their data plan when I ordered their SIM, Consumer Cellular didn't automatically turn it on for me. I'm guessing the reason is because I have two phone lines with them. Their website gave me the option of which phone(s) I wanted to enable data for. I chose to have data enabled on my Huawei 8800-51 smartphone only. I turned off the phone for ten minutes then turned it back on. I now have wireless web and and photo mms. Thank you yamillrx!

    I have a Huawei U8800 that I am having a hard time configuring for Consumer Cellular too. I have called CC 3 times and was told that because I have a 4G phone, there is no configuration available. Funny....my husband has the exact same phone on the exact same network and they got his to work. When I go in to where my networks are, there is AT&T and Cingular, which is the correct one for my carrier. But the ATT option is the only one that has a radio button which is not ticked green so i assume that it is using the Cingular. Anyway, there is no way for me to configure anything. Does anyone know how to configure the Huawei phones?

    I tried several settings found in many locations, and the one by yamrillx was the only one that I got to work for both mobile access and MMS. Works fine on a RAZR running 4.1 OS

    Default Consumer Cellular APN / Data settings

    Dear csventres, artemiderus, yamillrx, and all,

    Thank you so much for posting these data settings for Consumer Cellular. Their tech support was not helpful at all with phones not purchased from them. I have both an unlocked Galaxy S3 and an unlocked N1 (GSM). I made the switch from ATT due to unreasonable marketing, and expensive talk and data plans.

    I have set 1 APN for both the internet and the MMS. Both the internet and MMS will work for Consumer Cellular on Android version 2.3.6 with the following settings below. The APN type must be set to "default,mms" no space between words and without the quotes. I also had to reboot my device to get the settings to work. I have been messing with this for a while now too so I'm going to leave things as they are.

    APN: att.mvno
    Proxy : 66.209.11.32
    Port: 80
    Server: http://mmsc.cingular.com
    MMSC: http://mmsc.cingular.com
    MMS proxy: 66.209.11.32
    MMS port: 80
    Auth type: PAP
    APN type: default,mms

    Thanks everyone!
    Hope this helps out those who are still having issues.

    Hi lotsopets,

    In the APNs where you see your choices, click the settings on the bottom by left of the home button. Then click on New APN (the + on the left), call it Consumer Cellular. Add a new APN with the configurations I posted in my other post in this thread. After you add this new APN click the radio button so Consumer Cellular is the one with the green dot. That will make this setting the default. Then reboot your device and you should be good to go.

    Hope this helps!

    Consumer Cellular tech support was not helpful at all with phones not purchased from them. I have an unlocked Huawei u8800-51 I bought from Amazon for a lot less than CC wanted. I made the switch from T-Mobile because they were charging 2X the price I am paying with CC and I had no data plan.
    Both the internet and MMS will work for Consumer Cellular with the Huawei u8800-51 on Android version 2.2.2 with the following settings.
    I have been messing with this for almost a month now.
    Go to settings, Wireless & networks,Mobile networks, Access Point Names.
    Push the Menu button (that's the 4 horizontal lines with the larger line on top, it's the second of the 4 icons along the bttom of the phone) and select New APN.
    Enter the following settings.

    Name: ConsumerCellular
    APN: att.mvno
    Proxy : 66.209.11.32
    Port: 80
    Username: <Not set>
    Password: <Not set>
    Server: http://mmsc.cingular.com
    MMSC: http://mmsc.cingular.com
    MMS proxy: 66.209.11.32
    MMS port: 80
    MCC: 310
    MNC: 410
    IP Version: IPV4
    Auth type: PAP or CHAP
    APN type: default,mms

    Now save your settings and turn the phone off.
    Turn the phone back on and you should be able to sent and receive MMS messages and access the internet from your phone.

    Hope this helps.

    Great Forum. I'm trying to configure a Motorola Atrix 4G MB860 (sold as 'unlocked' for AT&T) with Consumer Cellular. I've also talked to CC customer support many times in the last few days. They sent me settings to create a new APN which are similar to those above (thanks, Dan). I also ordered a CC supplied Moto Android Bravo which works fine, but it does not show the APN settings (to copy). For the Atrix, CC mapped the IMEI number of the phone to the the phone number configured on the SIM and phone calls are fine. When I switch to the new 'ConsumerCellular' APN, the 3G and H icons show briefly, but then disappear. There is no cellular internet service. In fact, I've tried this with two different Atrix's (same SIM). No luck on either one. Are there 'levels' of a phone being unlocked? Any ideas are welcome.

    I have the same phone (2 in the family) and the same issues.

    Has anyone been able to get the Atrix 4G to work on CC?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. The CC folks are very nice, but are not hugely helpful in troubleshooting. I have tried all of the settings in previous postings.

    Hey everybody, I just registered with Android Central but I have some information that will probably help many of those who can't get their internet to connect with Consumer Cellular. By the way, I have an HTC Sensation 4G.

    I just recently started service (including data) with CC and received my phone about a month ago. After unlocking and installing an Android Revolution HD rom, I have been looking all over the internet for different APN settings for my phone, but none seemed to work. I eventually settled on these settings:

    * FYI, I set up only one APN and I got it to work for MMS and WEB *

    Name: Consumer cellular
    APN: att.mvno
    Proxy: proxy.mvno.ccmobileweb.com
    Port: 80
    Username: Not set
    Password: Not set
    Server: http://mmsc.cingular.com
    MMSC: http://mmsc.cingular.com
    MMS port: Not set
    MMS protocol: WAP 2.0
    MCC: 310
    MNC: 410
    Authentication Type: PAP
    APN type: Not set

    These are typical settings I have found all over the internet. However, other settings may work. This is why. I was just about to give up when I called Consumer Cellular as a last ditch effort. It looks like some people have had bad experiences with CC techs, but mine was extremely helpful. It was quick too. The tech asked if I had purchased the phone from them. I said no and he told me that it would first have to be registered on the network to connect. He had me type in a keypad number combination (forget what it was, probably different for different phones) that revealed the IMEI number on my phone. I repeated this back to him, he verified that it was for an HTC Sensation 4G phone then had me restart my phone. Upon restart it connected. Success!

    On top of that, he sent me detailed APN setting instructions for my phone to my email for future reference. They were slightly different, but since my internet was already working I didn't change anything.

    So before you give up, give CC a call (you might have to call a few times to get a good tech), because your connection problem may have nothing to do with the phone, but with you not being registered on the network.

    FYI, I'm a recent Android convert. Good luck guys!

    Rush,

    I have an unlocked Motorola Atrix MB860 and am using consumer cellular. Just got the phone and CC is sending me their SIM card.

    Does anyone have the specific settings to use on this phone? I have read all the posts, but none seem to specifically address this phone.

    Thanks so much for any help you can provide. This is my first smart phone and I am a 72 year old new user.

    Cris, there isn't a specific setting for each phone type. It's pretty basic but you may have to tweak the settings which most everyone else has done here to get data working. You can also download the Tweaker app which should also provide the correct settings as it did for my Galaxy Note 2.

    Thanks to all who helped me set up my unlocked Morotola Atrix MB860 to work with Consumer Cellular.
    I tried all the combnations that you sent me, but couldn't find one that would let me do Internet access. I finally called Consumer Cellular 5 different times until I got the most wonderful and helpful customer service rep who went out of her way to stay on the phone with me for over an hour until we found the right combination of entries. The phone works just fine now, so here are the final results of our efforts. Please let me know if these worked for you too!

    First, call Consumer Cellular and have them text you the settings that they have to set up a new APN for a Motorola phone. When you get the text, just follow the instructions to download it to your Access point names file. The APN name will most likely be Consumer Cellular. After you have completed the download, do the following: press SETTINGS, Wireless & networks, Mobile networks, and Access point names. You should see a name for Consumer Cellular. Open this APN. Make sure that each of the following is as listed below. Where I have said to (leave blank), it means not to enter anything. DO NOT type in the words "leave blank"! If Consumer Cellular has given you a different entry in the text message download, change it to what is below.

    Name: Consumer Cellular
    APN: att.mvno
    Proxy: proxy.mvno.ccmobileweb.com
    Port: 80
    Username: (leave blank)
    Password: (leave blank)
    Server: (leave blank)
    MMSC: (leave blank)
    MMS proxy: proxy.mvno.ccmobileweb.com
    MMS port: 80
    MCC: 310
    MNC: 410
    Authentication type: (leave blank)
    APN type: default,mms,supl,agps,fota
    APN protocol: IPv4

    After you complete the above entries, go bak one screen to the APN list and touch the Consumer Cellular name to highlight the circle to the right of the name. That will select this APN as the one to open when you access the internet. Consumer Cellular recommended then a hard shut off of the phone. Then turn it on and turn off any WiFi connection that might be on just so you can test the new APN without the phone trying to select any WiFi system first. If you can now connect to the internet, you can then turn any WiFi back on so the phone can automatically choose which one to use.

    Hope this helps. Do let me know.

    Just signed up with consumer cellular two weeks ago. I purchased a used (but mint) Pantech Burst (unlocked GSM) and a used (but mint) Samsung Focus Flash (unlocked GSM) from reputable Ebay stores. Meanwhile, I ordered a couple of free SIM cards from CC and signed up for a plan (voice, text, data) and added the second line. I installed the SIM cards into the phones... and had voice and text right away. I'm usually in wifi all day - so it took me a few days to realize that I didn't have data yet (I'm new to smartphones). I read these threads added/edited APN accordingly.... and nothing. No data. I called CC and got someone on the phone who registered my Pantech Burst IMEI with CC and also sent me a self-install application that created an APN with the correct settings on my phone. Had to turn off/on the phone and...perfect. 4G data. He also registered the other phone's IMEI (had the number... didn't have the phone at the time). When I got home I adjusted the APN settings on the second phone (Samsung Focus Flash) per a glance at the APN set-up on my Pantech Burst... I then turned phone off then on... and... perfect. 4G data.

    Two things..

    (a) you have to talk with a CC rep and make sure they register your IMEI with their network if you're using your own unlocked or AT&T GSM phone; and
    (b) the settings that ultimately worked (provided by the CC rep) are slightly different than some of the settings provided in this thread. Almost exactly the same... with a slight variation here or there - so, save yourself the frustration and talk to a CC rep... or email them your IMEI and the list of APN settings on your phone, and they'll register your phone and email you back the correct settings for your phone.

    I have a Motorola Atrix 4g and spent what seems like hours trying to setup up my mms. Data was not an issue but sending/receiving mulit-media was. I tried everything except calling Consumer Cellular. So I called them. Told them my problem. They asked for my IMEI number. Gave it to them. The Atrix 4G is capable of having its Wireless Web updated automatically. They sent me the files. I clicked them on, entered the pin number they sent by email and within seconds data/multimedia works without an issue.

    I guess the old saying that is if doesn't work the first time, read the instructions. In this case, call Consumer Cellular. They were pleasant and easy to work with. I had to call them back a second time because my wife has the same phone. They sent the files out and I auto installed them and she is a happy woman.
