    Is the APN proxy setting required for data access??

    I was just wondering....

    I was trying to install an app from the android market over the data connection and found that it wouldn't let me. So I did some searching and it was apparently because of the proxy in Mobi's APN settings. The solution was to delete the proxy. So I went ahead and did that and it worked.

    So i was wondering what, if any, are the down sides to removing the proxy. Will Mobi require me to put it back?

    No down sides I can think of.
    The word 'Pentaband' means '5 Bands', from the Greek word 'pente' meaning '5'. For a phone to be pentaband it has to support 5 bands. If the phone has AWS support, it doesn't automatically mean that it is pentaband.

    Don't send me PMs for questions that can be asked publicly.

    The proxy should not be used for mowap. It only slows down the connection and causes some websites to not work (won't load). The only thing that does proxy does is allow you to access your mobiliciy account without needing to log in. If you want to access yiur online account without the proxy, just use the regular mobilicity.ca (non-mobile) address. The proxy itself is useless.

    Ah this was why..
    I kept getting 403 error while trying to download an app through Mobi network.
    Will let the owner know of this and try again.
