Nokia – Mobile Internet Settings

On some Nokia‘s you might have a problem using some Java apps – specifically with their internet connection.

If you are, you can always try this fix which is used for the MXit app for your phone:

Some of these Nokia models require additional settings
Do the following:
Select menu
2. Select Settings
3. Select Configuration
4. Select Personal Configuration Settings
5. Select Add or Add New
6. Select Access point
Account name call it MXit APN
7. Go back to Personal configuration settings
8. Select the new Access Point called MXit APN
9. Set as Preferred Access Point and activate in all applications
10. Go back to Personal configuration settings
11. Select the new Access Point called MXit APN
12. Select Access point settings
13. Select Bearer settings
14. Enter User name: mxit
15. Enter Password: mxit
16. Verify Password: mxit
17. Now start MXit from your Applications – Collections
18. When MXit opens ALLOW Network Access Select YES
19. Web Settings should now show MXit APN (The one you just created)
When you downloaded MXit, do not run it immediately (if prompted).
Exit (close) the WAP session you opened to download, or reboot the phone.
It is similar to installing a new application on a PC, you need to reboot.

Buy MXit Moola from any Sim

People ask how do you buy moola for a number that you are using for MXit, if you don’t have that number’s actual simcard?

Well now you can!

Insert ANY SIM card into your phone and buy Moola via Tradepost and the Moola will still be allocated to the current MXit Profile loaded onto the phone.

So, if you are using MXit on your phone, and the number that is registered on your MXit profile (see Menu->Settings->Profile: Cell number:) is not the same as the SIM card/phone number that the phone is using, you can Buy Moola via Tradepost!

Tradepost is a contact on MXit that you can talk to to buy services and stuff.

How does it work? The number in your MXit profile is sent with the SMS somehow when you use Tradepost*, and then the Moola is added to the number in the SMS instead of the number the SMS comes from.

MXit or Java on Samsung BlackJack i600 or Windows Mobile Pocket PC

The Samsung BlackJack doesn’t come with Java (J2ME/JME/MIDP/JAR/JAD) installed on it. So you can’t just download MXit or Opera Mini or any other Java apps to a Samsung i600.

Samsung BlackJack i600 Windows Mobile

But there is a way around.
You first need to install a Java MIDP emulator on your Samsung BlackJack device; usually called the JVM. Then you will be able to download any Java JAR/JAD program from your phone’s internet browser. After you have a Java Emulator for your Windows Mobile device, you can go to the mxit wap site and download the Samsung -> “Other” version. It will now work.

Here are the details
