Internet&MMS settings for Asus Padfone S

No specific settings for this phone listed. Tried all variations of the recommended settings with no luck. No search results for this phone on the forum. Eventually found a a post (tens of pages into one of the many threads on the subject of internet settings) by someone with an LG/HTC who found putting * as the apn type worked for them. Seemed pretty random but, having tried everything else short of waiting a day or two for 48 to sort it, I figured it couldn't do any harm to try it. Restarted my phone and...SUCCESS!! I said I'd save anyone else the trouble and post here, ensuring it shows up in a search too. Hope it helps someone else :-)

Hey epc

 

Did you get this sorted yet?  I think the problem is your APN type.  It shoud be saved as default,supl,mms so change it and try it out.

 

Also ensure you have data roaming switched on.

I had it sorted when I posted. No, it was setting the APN to * that sorted it for me. Once I figured that out, I posted the settings that worked so that anyone else with the same phone or similar could find the solution with a simple search, now that my post should show up as a search result. Thanks anyway.

I wonder if the Authentication type is irrelevant?

Mine is set to None and works fine.

And I see this:

 

http://tamingthedroid.com/what-apn-settings-mean

 

"If you carrier does not require you to supply a username and password in your APN settings, this setting probably has no effect. For unknown reasons, many carriers tend to specify what you should put here anyway, even if they don't require a username or password."

 

Also my APN type is default,mms,supl but just default worked (for internet access anyway - didn't try MMS). My phone only allows me to select some or all of 

 

default

mms

supl

DUN

 

and doesn't let me edit this field to enter arbitrary settings including "*".

 

I've said it before but I suspect that there could be a much simpler list of settings that would work in most or all situations and with most or all devices rather than having lists and lists of settings some of which are not consistent with each other.

 

After all the key thing is describing the APN connection and that should be the same for all phones and operating systems?

 

Having a simpler list of settings (or even just one for all cases) might reduce the number of support queries about internet/APN config. This is probably by far the most common query and cause of confusion for people.

 

Cheers

Do a manual scan for networks.

If you see only 2G and not also 3G networks then it's most likely that the 2G only option is enabled.

In that case you need to reenable dual 3G/2G - e.g.

 

System settings > Wireless & networks > Mobile networks > Network mode > GSM/WCDMA auto

 

or something similar.

 

Hope this helps.

Does internet access work at all?

Did you configure your internet/APN settings?

If not then you need to do this.

See here:

Hope this helps.
