Restore Sony Ericsson WAP, MMS, 3G Settings.

We have come to know that many people are having problems configuring their phones after de-branding or after flashing it. Also there is a general mis-conception that after flashing you won’t be able to access 3G, WAP, Internet through your phone. That’s Wrong. Usually after de-branding your phone you lose all the WAP, Internet, MMS settings from the phone. And you won’t be able to send MMS or browse Internet.

For MMS and WAP to function properly, you should first create Data Accounts in Phone Settings and Then create  Internet Profile and MMS profiles which make use of the Data Account. For manually creating these accounts and profiles you will need a lot of technical information from your CellPhone Service Provider. You will need to know the APN, Proxy Address if any, Username and password settings. Hence the idea of manually setting up is not recommended, unless you have spare time to figure out things.

You can directly download WAP and MMS settings for your phone from local Sony Ericsson Website. Visit SonyEricsson.COM and choose your country, Enter the website. Then Go to Support Section. In support section specific to your country, you will find links on how to configure Internet and MMS. Visit those links, You will be asked about phone model and operator name( like Vodafone, Airtel in list), Select your operator and provide your cell phone number. You will be given a authorization code, and in a few minutes Sony Ericsson will send you the Internet/MMS settings directly to your phone. Enter the authorization code in your phone. And MMS, WAP, 3G and Internet settings will be installed correctly. All operator based services should then work fine.

    Well, you can also call your network provider’s call center and ask them to send you the settings. It works for T-Mobile (Croatia).

  2. Akshay says

    Yes that works. I feel Download Via Se Website is more comfortable !!

  3. Danijel says

    Yes, it is – you’re sure you’ll get the correct settings.
    And I would like to thank you for all the tutorials!
    I’m going to crossflash my K530i to W660, and I have got one question – I’ll create my CustPack because I can’t find one for SE Europe FS, so what should I enter in CDA field using CustGen ( – my CDA from current CustPack in phone, or type anything – and is that only thing I should put in customize folder, because I see the rest of files is only .itm hooks – links in folders – and the preloaded_config.xml is the WAP/GPRS info?
    Thanks a lot!

  4. Danijel says

    Sorry for bothering, I have fully crossflashed it, and it’s great! I found CustPack on eSnips and applied it. Finally, after so much thinking about it…
    Now just the patches (I flashed Main with SEtool2 to apply the QA patch), and my phone is a brand new W660i (by the software…) !!!

    Can you help me please? I have a Sony Ericsson phone K660i. I got it from 3 network, but their service was so hopeless I changed to Vodaphone. The phone was unlocked and I’m able to use it OK most of the time. BUT every now and again I get the message: “Ciphering not provided by operator. Insecure transmission.” And the call is not connected / disconnected. Neither 3 nor Vodaphone can/will help me – each refers me to the other and Sony Ericsson refers me to both of them!! Any ideas? All suggestions welcome!
    Thanks. Barbara

    I’m having trouble getting the settings from the sony ericsson site. I get through the setup fine but I never get a text message with the settings. I live in Canada and my service provider is Rogers. I think I might be entering the “international” version of my phone number incorrectly. Can anyone help me?

  11. VID905 says

    I solved my MMS problem! I searched around and tried different things but in the end, this is what fixed it: I got the custpack for rogers from seusers and flashed it to my phone. After that, I did a master reset and that was it. Both my WAP and MMS settings were right!

  22. Tom says

    Hello! I have done some flashing and un-branding and yes, my WAP, MMS and 3G settings are gone. But the thing is that nothing seems to be able to bring them back. I have of course tried downloading the settings from SE and also I went to the local phone store to see if they could fix it. They could not. So is there another way to restore the settings in a similar way to flashing and those ways? Because I suspect there is something wrong beyond the usual problems of which you could download settings to solve…

  23. Akshay says

    nothing is wrong with phone, software can’t damage phone, software is conceptual and does not exist in real, that’s why software and hardware.
    Just try again and configure properly or reflash again, it will get fixed.

  24. SS says

    If I have a W995a (North American 3G) and flash with an Asian firmware, will I have problems accessing the 3G network in North America because Asia uses a different 3G frequency than North America. Thanks

    hello my friend,

    when i first bought my phone, i downloaded my mms setting thru SE website as u had explained, and i could receive MMS….

    now i want to re-configure as i cant receive mms. so i tried to go to SE website to download the settings again. unfortunately i forgot where to click to get to the part where u have to enter the mobile number etc.
    i clicked at the QuickLinks part in support section and chose mms settings. but then it did not ask for my mobile number etc.

    thank you!
