Hey, Just got a brand new N95 8GB on 3 and accidentally deleted the GPRS settings.

Settings are - Connection name = 3, Data Bearer = packet data, Access point name = three.co.uk, username and password is blank, finally authentication is Normal. thanks

Vodafone UK - Contract Settings
Hello, just to let your users know - I tried to get FishText working on my new Vodafone mobile, apparently I should of just been able to use the contract internet settings as these are for direct access to the Internet. However they didn't seem to be setup on my phone so after a quick call to Vodafone they told me what i needed to do and i was up and texting in no time.
Hello! I have just managed to find settings for Orange that have enabled my blackberry to work with fishtext and would like to share! If you go to Options > Device > Advanced System Settings > TCP IP. APN settings must be enabled and next to APN you should type "Orangeinternet". Hope that helps.
