How to Activate GPRS and MMS of Nokia Phones Powered by Sun Cellular

Here is the fourth tutorial on how to activate GPRS and MMS of Nokia Phones and enable WAP settings. After setting up the configurations properly, your Nokia cell phones will be able to connect to the internet, browse webpages and download emails. In this article, Sun-powered cell phones (Nokia and other phones with similar navigation and configuration settings) can use the following procedure in activating GPRS and MMS. The first three tutorials were titled “How to Setup WAP by Activating GPRS and MMS of Globe Cell Phones“, “How to Setup WAP by Enabling GPRS and MMS of Smart Cell Phones“, and “How to Configure Nokia N99i V9+i, Nokia N95 8Gb Clone and Other China Cell Phones to Connect to the Internet“. Please read these articles for your guidance in enabling configuration settings for other networks and other phone brands.

Automatic Activation of GPRS/MMS/WAP

Go to Menu -> Services -> WAP -> Settings -> Edit Profile
Select Sun WAP, Press Activate Profile and Save
Go to Menu -> Messages -> MMS -> Message Settings -> Server Profile
Select Sun MMS, Select Activate Profile and Save
For corporate accounts, fax a letter of request and ID of the authorized signatory to 395-0138. Approval and activation maybe slightly delayed.
Text “ACTIVATE” and send to 2300
If unable to activate,please call Sun Customer Hotline (200 on your mobile phone).

* If surfing or MMS sending does not work or results in an error, please proceed to the next step for manual setting.

Manual Activation of GPRS/MMS/WAP

Setup/Enable GPRS
Go to Menu -> Services -> Data Account -> GPRS

Please post in the comment section of this article any problem you will encounter in setting up your Nokia phones powered by Sun Cellular. I hope these tutorials on how to connect these phones to the internet by enabling GPRS, MMS and setting up WAP have helped a little.

  75. jess bautista says:

    don’t know how to open a multimedia message sent from 240, it came from one who sent it anonymously. it also said that I may be able to view it from this website at http//WWW.MMSGALLERY.COM.PH.correspondingly with a given set of figures to input as my name and password number. But still I can’t. Please show me how. Another is that while I was talking to someone in Lucena city and lipa City, I had on three occasions experienced being told by the person I was conversing with , that they hearing clear voices of two persons talking that would figure we were having a party line. I am in MAKATI city.Another thing though is when I was calling up my son and on different instances , my phone would indicate that my phone is on hold and that you would soon hear a tune from a piano playing. My CP is a Nokia E63 series newly bought from a Nokia Center store. Hope you would take the matter up of great concern. Thanks
