Mobile broadband setup

Post by Ted D » Sun Aug 21, 2011 8:47 am

Just switched to a Z15 plan and the mobile works fine but I cannot work out the mobile broadband setup. When I try to go onto the web the phone tries to connect through my previous carrier. Any help will be appreciated. The phone is a Nokia 6110 navigator.

Regards

Ted

check the user manual for your phone, it will detail how to setup an APN (Nokia can have multiple APN's configured from memory) and how to set that APN as the default, if you don't have the manual to hand you can download it from the Nokia website

OK Looked up the manual. When I attempt to add APN the phone asks for a PIN2 code. When I look up PIN2 code in the maula it says
"PIN codes
The personal identification number (PIN) code and the universal personal
identification number (UPIN) code (4 to 8 digits) help to protect your SIM card
against unauthorized use. See "Security," p. 74. The PIN code is usually supplied
with the SIM card.
The PIN2 code (4 to 8 digits) may be supplied with the SIM card and is required for
some functions."

Any ideas?
