    Question Wind Internet Settings (APNs)

    For both Data and MMS to function, you need to set up two APNs:

    Data
    ---------------------------
    Name: Wind CA
    APN: internet.windmobile.ca
    MCC: 302
    MNC: 490
    Type: default,supl

    MMS
    ---------------------------
    Name: Wind CA MMS
    APN: mms.windmobile.ca
    MMSC: http://mms.windmobile.ca
    MMS Proxy: 74.115.197.70
    MMS Port: 8080
    MCC: 302
    MNC: 490
    Type: mms


    On Android phones, this can be configured in Settings > Wireless & networks > Mobile networks > Access Point Names > Menu > New APN. Be sure to select Menu > Save APN when done entering the above information.

    I have the Samsung Galaxy S on Wind Mobile and I just switched to the Holiday Miracle Plan. The MMS settings that I used which worked are:
    Make ONE APN with the following settings:
    Name: WIND
    APN: internet.windmobile.ca
    Proxy: Not Set
    Username: Not Set
    Password: Not Set
    Server: Not Set
    MMSC: http://mms.windmobile.ca
    MMS proxy: 74.115.197.70
    MMS port: 8080
    MCC: 302
    MNC: 490
    Authentication type: Not Set
    APN type: internet+mms

    Hope this helps some of you

    I don't think there's any guarantee that the combined Internet and MMS settings people keep posting around will consistently work. A separate APN for MMS is how Wind has it setup, and even if a single APN works for some people now, there's no reason for Wind to ensure non-standard configurations work. They will design and test to ensure compatibility with their own stuff, and that's it.

    On an unrelated note, can we change the title of this thread to "Wind Internet and MMS Settings"? People keep creating threads about MMS settings because they don't see this sticky.

    When I create two apns my 3g stops working. but when I leave the apn type field blank then the 3g comes back on but still no mms. Any thoughts? Using the nexus s

    Edit:
    Well, works great now, main thing was Swype automatically left a space between the comma with default,supl. Took me FOREVER to find that problem, but once the space was gone, works like a charm. Thanks for all the essential info here

    Thanks ~David! Those settings (seperate APNs) work perfectly on my stock N1.

    I just put in all the APN info into 2 APN on my Nexus One.
    I've done a hard reset and I still don't seem to be connecting to data.
    Something wrong?

    Will this APN work on the Blackberry? I have a couple of apps that require APN to be set.

    I put in the 2 APNs and whenever I send or receive an MMS message, my 3G internet becomes unavailable for a couple of minutes. Using a Nexus S.

    After reading the OP at first, I was sorta confused at where I'd enter the MMS settings. Would I just create a new Internet APN setting for the MMS service? <- Perhaps this is what most of you are doing, which I do not suggest is incorrect.

    I found on my Windows Mobile phone a menu to enter MMS settings, so instead of creating another Internet APN settings, I entered the OP Info into the MMS Menu and bang, I was able to send MMS with no issues (this was also during the time I had my phone tethered to my computer).

    Perhaps the Nexus has some other section to enter the MMS info?

    I used these settings yesterday on my LG Optimus T


    Thank you!

    They work great.

    I ended up doing 2 APNs that you see in the OP.

    Now, I downloaded Handcent SMS since it will automatically shrink the image for me (For MMS messages).

    With my Nexus One, running CM 6.1, those APN's are there by default, but I can't send an MMS. It just sits there at "Sending...".

    I've tried clearing the APN's and manually entering them, but to no avail. Any ideas?

    The consensus seems to be that WIND's network is the problem when it comes to MMS.

    These are the correct settings. WIND needs to fix something on their end.
