For common settings to some Sony Ericsson (& other Brands) phones, see this POST by fidog.
For phones not listed there, you can use Sony Ericsson's online configurator. To do so, you must...
1. Go to Sony Ericsson's Website (http://www.sonyericsson.com) and go into the Canada Region.
2. Click on the "Support" Tab at the top.
3. Click on "Phone Setup".
4. Select your phone model. (If the model of the phone is not listed, select a model that is closest to your phone; after a few more steps you'll be able to select your exact model)
5. Click on the appropiate link for WAP, E-mail, or MMS settings. Then follow the step by step instructions.
The following will be a step by step example for setting up GPRS on a Sony Ericsson p910a.
1. Select your phone model (or closest model) after completing Step #3 above.
2. Click on the "WAP" link.
3. You'll be brought to the WAP setup page. On this page select your exact phone model and hit submit.
4. Now select "Canada" in the country drop-down list and hit submit.
5. Select "Fido" on the list of networks and hit submit.
6. Select "GPRS" for the network setup type and hit submit.
7. Enter the corresponding Security match phrase and enter your phone number in the format +1[Area Code][Phone Number], then hit submit.
8. Now wait for a text-message to arrive on your Sony Ericsson Handset, and follow the instructions on the webpage!
EDIT: It should also be noted that for MMS/GPRS to work, it must've been enabled by Fido Customer Service. Dial 611 from your handset or 1-888-481-FIDO (3436) from anywhere to activate if you have not already done so.

LOL... didouche... it ain't a repost. The post you provided (I also provided in the first sentence of my walkthrough) is only listing the settings out for several phones, while this post is a walkthrough for all SE phones.Originally Posted by didouche
the first link that is in this FAQ is for setting up all SE phones... it's the same link u provided... I like ur thread but it does the same thing the mms/wap faq does
Not really... I'm guessing you are referring to the link to the SE Configurator Website in fidog's MMS/WAP faq. Unlike that faq, this is a step by step guide which is not present in that faq.Originally Posted by didouche

Gmail now works on my K550i
Did the GPSR for prepaid change recently? I can no longer go onto internet from my phone.
I have a SE T630 and I used this tutorial to set up GPSR before and did again but no luck.
We should chill and relax instead of fighting all the time

I want to share pics I take with this camera phone :P
I can browse the net with either internet profiles (WAP or MMS) that is setup from the ericsson site...
Does anyone have the settings for a Z710i unlocked and on a Fido prepaid plan. Have tried download from SE site for WAP,and MMS but they don't work.
Believe it or not, when i go to http://www.sonyericssson.com i always choose UK as my home country, because i find that SE shows all the phone models there, and after selecting your phone, then your country, you will see all respective providers and i always get the right settings.
For some reason when you select canada or usa, you just dont get the dropdown menu of all models of phones, you just get the models that SE officially sells in those areas!
Hope this helps
I'm having a bit of a problem.
I have tried updating Internet settings, along with email settings through the SE website to my unlocked k850i which is on the Fido network. I do not have a dataplan obviously because I don’t have a Fido specific phone, but I would still like to set up these features so I have them if I were to need them.
Picture messaging seems to take the settings, however when I send a picture message it just stays in my outbox and will not send to an email or phone number.
When ever I send the settings from the SE website it gives me my pin number and everything fine, I get the text message which says yes to install. I do this and it says “Settings not valid. Check with your provider and try again.”
Anyone have any ideas on this one?
I did all of this for my z710i and when I try to get into my gmail it says finding server for awhile and then just says, server not found, any idea why?
