I'm new to this blog and new to Android, but I am hoping you can help me out. I have a Galaxy Note using on AT&T. I installed the SMS GO Pro app but can't get MMS to work and have spotty at best data usage.
I was hoping you could give me your APN settings for both MMS and DATA. Also if you have MMS configured with an app such as SMS GO pro, those configs would be awesome.
I know I don't have any ground to stand on to be asking for help, but any that you can offer would be great.
I recently got a Samsung Galaxy S2 when Amazon sold ALL cell phones for $0.01 and a normal 2-year plan. I opted for tethering capability also, for an add'l $20, and I was surprised to see it work so well. It provides a WiFi umbrella for 2 tablets + one ereader (when I was experimenting and when my neighborhood power went down for an entire night and I had work to get in).
When I checked to see why it was as fast as my very good Comcast connection which gets 20Mbps on the unreliable speed tests, I saw that my WiFi router connections (Netgear N600) show 56MBps. but the cell phone (when neighborhood power is down -- too often) shows H+ and 65Mbps on all the devices connected, with the description "Excellent" and Netflix runs on the satellite devices without artifacts.
I finally realized I must be on 4G, and it does run in San Francisco bay area but I'm across the bay and one of the current maps show it with weaker 4G.
While my connection capability is seen as 65Mbps and 'Excellent' per connection software (Windows), it's similar to my Comcast account's 54Mbps connection capability, also seen as 'Excellent' since it's a small flat.
On Comcast WiFi, while the link speed is seen as '54Mbps' my actual download speed has averaged 20-21Mbps.
On the Samsung with AT&T, the link speed is seen as 65Mbps but the actual download speed of tethered devices is about 5Mbps. Apparently good enough to run Netflix with no artifacts that are particularly noticeable.
I'm currently using my note with Gophone simcard without internet access ( all I see is the HSPA+) . And my question is, can I still get a dumbphone so I can put my current gophone simcard in and have the APN reconfigured so that I can have the internet on my note with that same simcard?
Please help! YOu are answers are appreciated. thank you!
