Setting for Virgin Mobile Data

Apologies again to the regular readers of this site, but in the past I’ve blogged about the technical resolutions to many of the problems I’ve had and it’s turned out that many others have the same problem.

We’re in Melbourne! I picked up a couple of Virgin Mobile Sim Cards with the plan of using my phone for data.

However I had massive headaches until I found a site that finally gave me the very simple settings I needed to make my mobile data work (this is on an HTC P3600i (Trinity):

Name: VirginInternet
Modem: Cellular Line…
Access Point Name: VirginInternet
The ‘This network connects to the Internet’ checkbox in ‘Proxy Settings’ needs to be checked.

I think the Access Point Name was what was getting me off the track.  Hopefully you should now be up and running.

Keep an eye on twitter for some travel updates.
