I'm trying to use the $50/mo unlimited talk and text plan with H2O wireless... I couldn't figure out how to get "pure" for $40, so I bought the $49.99 refill which also adds the international calling. OK. Get it activated, got it working.
Then we I try to send or receive a MMS - I get an error. MMS is supposed to be included - But ** NO WHERE ** have I been able to find the MMSC, PROXY and APN settings for USA GSM H2O Wireless.
If anyone out there can PLEASE supply me the correct settings for H2O wireless MMS server's for a USA GSM UNLOCKED PHONE. I'd appreciate it.
Sorry, but H20, Air Voice gsm and ALL other Att mvno unlimited carriers (Red Pocket, Pure Talk, Jolt, etc) have ZERO mms/data capability with their plans. The only way to send pix is via an attachment on an email using a phone with wifi.
Simple Mobile offers mms/data but it is a Tmobile unlimited mvno. NO Att ones offer right now. Truly their Achille's heel.
I look at it as an advantage over PagePlus since they can't deduct BS from your balance and turn you into a per minute customer without you knowing etc. PagePlus did that to me it can't happen with H20. That is off course unless you had a need for MMS in that case I would say go with Simple, StraightTalk or Boost depending on your coverage needs and the price point you are looking for.
H20's lesser known cdma sister has mms but no web data. They allow full Verizon phone byod but no Verizon prepaid phones. They have per minute rates approaching but not quite equalling Page Plus. CS is so so but better then PPC .
H2O is planning to come out with the data plan within this Q3 of 2010. I got the inside scoop saying it will be out in August which will allow customers to have MMS with their plan. The data will be on the $49.99 plan but not sure on the $40 pure plan.
It is already Q3 as of this month. Att's mvnos have been promising data since they came out with the first gsm unlimited plans for mvnos back late last year. We've seen price drops, limits lifted for toll free numbers and international text added. But still NO DATA.
The word is H20 will be getting a miniscule amount (20/50 megs). Just enough to whet the appetite, not enough to satisfy it.
I don't think H20 or Air Voice will get more then the 100 megs max that Att Gophone has for data.
30 megs and 100 mms is the same kind of thing PPC and Simple offered in the beginning. Appetite whetter. And that's it. I hope they have overage charges so you have some flexibility. 20-30 megs is what would be the minimum for a typical "feature" (dumb) phone like. This is verified by Verizon's new policy to shove a 20 meg pack down your throat on most phones that aren't smartphones , whether you like it or not.
You can bet there will be hordes of clammering for "more data, more data, we want unlimited data" for H20/Att mvnos in the markets where Simple has no reach.
It happened with Page Plus and it will happen with H20.
30 megs ain't enough for most smartphone owners. Even Blackberries consume an average of 50 megs, iphone/Android users are near data hogs at around 600.
But that won't keep people from trying (and whining) about the data.
Get a phone with wifi if you want data on H20. 30 megs isn't going to be enough for a lot of users who want more.
Btw, H20 Wireless CS clammed up and wouldn't confirm or deny it. They just said, "wait and see."
