Default Configuring Service Books for MMS

Please Login to Remove!

All -

I have a Pearl that I picked up from T-Mobile in December. Absolutely love it.

Now I've moved to Switzerland, at least for the time being, and I would like to keep using my phone. It's been "unlocked" by T-Mobile so that I can use other SIMs, but I don't have any MMS capabilities. In speaking with my prepaid SIM provider, they told me I had to manually configure the phone. They were kind enough to send me the settings, but they don't have instructions for this model.

Any idea where I can change the following settings? (It's in German, but most of it translates pretty directly back to English ;) ).


Profilname Swisscom MMS
bevorzugter Dienst GPRS (nur GPRS, GPRS only)
APN (Access Point Name)
Benutzername <leer lassen> (means "leave blank")
Passwort <leer lassen>
Homepage (URL, Startseite) *deleted, because the forum won't let me post URLs here, but suffice to say it links to the mms . natel . ch on port 8079
Verbindungstyp Permanent
IP-Adresse (Gateway)
Port-Nummer 9201
Verbindungssicherheit <ausschalten>

You'll need the settings sent to the phone via a service book. Does swisscom provide pre-paid BlackBerry service? If so, the service books should be sent to you over-the-air if you're subscribing to the service.
