    So I just got my new HTC One; a remarkable phone. I just put in my micro sim card but I can't seem to get Mobile Data to work for me. I am subscribed to the 5GB Monthly Data Plan but Internet, WhatsApp, etc. does not work for me over mobile data. I can send/receive SMS but not MMS and I can make calls. That's it. It seems that I need to enter the APN settings of my carrier to enable this. But I can't find them anywhere. I tried calling but they were busy talking to other customers and I didn't feel like waiting any longer. Anyone here on Etisalat (UAE) and knows these settings?

    My carrier is Etisalat as well. To get data and MMS to work you need to install APN, to do that, go to Settings->Mobile data->Access Point Names, from there add New APN and simply input these APN settings.

    For Data (GPRS):

    Name: DATA Package
    APN: etisalat.ae
    Proxy: (leave blank)
    Port: (leave blank)
    Username: (leave blank)
    Password: (leave blank)
    Server: (leave blank)
    MMSC: (leave blank)
    MMS Proxy: (leave blank)
    MMS port: (leave blank)
    MMS protocol: WAP 2.0
    MCC: 424
    MNC: 02
    Authentication type: PAP
    APN type: default,supl
    Bearer: Unspecified

    Now hit the back button and the APN settings will automatically be saved. You'll see a button next to the APN you just added, tap on it to activate it. Data now works.

    For MMS, do the same thing, add a new APN and enter the following:

    Name: Etisalat MMS
    APN: etisalat
    Proxy: (leave blank)
    Port: (leave blank)
    Username: mms
    Password: mms
    Server: (leave blank)
    MMSC: http://mms/servlets/mms
    MMS Proxy:
    MMS port: 8080
    MMS protocol: WAP 2.0
    MCC: 424
    MNC: 02
    Authentication type: PAP
    APN type: mms
    Bearer: Unspecified

    Tap the back button to save. Now MMS and DATA should work. Enjoy your new HTC One

I had entered the Data GPRS APN Settings u mentioned above, but it didn't work for in my phone. Can you please tell me what is the info I must enter into the APN settings for the 49 dhs Package?

    Hi. I followed everything you said here for the MMS, except the "MMS protocol: WAP 2.0" because there is no MMS protocol, only APN protocol.
