Re: Consumer Cellular & Moto G
Thanks for the threads. This one did the trick for my new Moto G on Consumer Cellular. Don't know about MMS - but browsing the internet works. 1st time smart phone (long time PC user), so we don't use much Smart Phone abilities but wanted to jump in. Will only turn data on when we need it but try to use WIFI much of the time.
Again thanks for the info!
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
Username: (leave blank)
Password: (leave blank)
Server: (leave blank)
MMSC: (leave blank)
MMS proxy: proxy.mvno.ccmobileweb.com
MMS port: 80
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.
