Default O2(UK) APN (FREE) settings

Please Login to Remove!

First of all apologies, if this is in the wrong forum I'm sorry.

I have AllSportGPS on my phone and need the O2(UK) APN settings to upload my maps to the internet. Well at least I think I need them because of an error I get but thats another story.

Anyway I know if the APN is...

APN: 2041 OR 2058
U: o2
P: password

...then you get billed for it.

However I requested the blackberry.net APN settings which should be free and I got the below.

APN: 57
U:
P:

Thats right, no user name or password. Now the error I had has gone from 'Invalid Tunnel Name' to 'Open Tunnel - Failure'. So I'm thinking that there must be a user name and password but O2 just wouldn't give it to me.

Its so annoying that they won't give you the information you need to use applications that you want on your phone, ARGH!!!!!

Any advise, tips or help very welcome. All I want is AllSportGPS to connect to the server. (I've tried bbTracker and couldn't get it to work on my BB).

Thanks,
G

This is chargeable and no good as its far to expensive to use. I found that out after my first bill.

I think O2 are ridiculous not letting customs know information so they can use a product.


Max,
If you find the free information, please let me know.

The problem I had with AllSportGPS was fully related to the APN setting or lack of it. I eventually gave in and tested it with the mobile web setting and it worked a treat.

But as we are all aware we want the free one.

I'm going to make that call to O2 again, NOW!

Just been on the phone for almost an hour to O2 and even spoke to a manager and all I got was bullshit. I can not believe this.

Why is it such hard work to get the settings you deserve when you pay for a BlackBerry unlimited data tarriff. Christ!

when you say unlimited blackberry data tariff, do they mean blackberry data? so emails, attachments etc? That might be why they won't budge on it sadly.

Hi all,

So has it been determined that you will get charged if you use the APNs other than the blackberry.net one for blackberry data?

Is it also definate that the blackberry.net one will not work with normal data, other than attachments, and emails?

It has been 100% determined and confirmed that O2 are con artists.

Quote:
Send and receive as many emails from your personal email account as you want, enjoy unlimited web browsing and Yahoo! Messenger instant messaging.*

* BlackBerry Unlimited
Fair usage policy applies (200Mb a month). Tariff excludes O2 Active (WAP) browsing, using your device as a modem and web browsing on BlackBerry Connect™ devices.
That is quite clear. It doesn't say anything about letting you using other types of data.

However........ when you click on 'VIEW TARIFF DETAILS' it says.
  • use Sat Nav services with your BlackBerry smartphone

Well I want to use AllSportGPS which is sort of SatNav. It wants to send a ants **** sized amount of data to the server so I can view my maps in Google Earth. Surely this counts.

The only problem is O2 won't let you have access to the APN settings for the unlimited service that I pay for. Argh! They make me SO mad.

Apologies to all if you've got this sorted by now, but has anyone tried the other login for O2's GPRS?

APN: mobile.o2.co.uk

U/N: o2web

P/W: password

I know it works... I just don't know if you will get charged for it!

You'll get raped when your bill comes in.
I got away with using this when I first got my phone for a month saying that it was unclear what you got billed for and they fell for it.

Chances of getting the actual settings we want, need and should have the right to as paying customers is a BIG FAT ZERO.

WAP browsing is included in the O2 Unlimited tariff.

Its not included at all my friend sorry.

It says in the small print it isn't included.

When you browse on your BlackBerry you need to make sure you're either in WiFi or Internet Browser mode for it to be free.

WiFi will be free if you're at home or in a free hot spot obviously.
Internet Browser is the blackberry.net setting that we all want and deserve access to. You can browse for free using this as much as you want, with in reason.

On the O2 Active setting you will get billed loads.

All settings that anyone currently know if you edit the APN will bill you, at a high price.

I used these settings on both my old 7290 and current 8100 and have never had to pay anything other than my fixed line rental.

Default Blackberry Unlimted

Hi

Seen some of the forum traffic on charges.

I had this debate with o2 Customer Services and pointe them to this link on their website earlier this month.

Blackberry Hub

If you click the View Tariff Details under Blackberry Unlimited O2 there is some details which conflict with other info on their site
