Mobitel Internet and MMS Settings for Android 4.1

EDIT: Updated with latest settings I got from Mobitel on Aug 2012. Thanks Jani for verifying settings for Android 4.1 Jelly Beans.

Few days back I've got Internet and MMS settings configured on my Nexus S at the Mobitel Flagship Center. (its the mobitel headoffice @ Gangarama, Col 02). Let me share the setting here, probably would become helpful those who use android 2.3 phones (and above).

First to locate these settings in your phone;
Go to Settings.
Tap on Wireless & Networks.
Scroll down and tap on Mobile Networks.Tap on Access Point Names.Tap on Options key and select New APN.Now create two APNs with settings listed below, you have the Save function in Options key menu to save the values after entering.

Internet:
Name: (MobitelInternet or something you fancy)
APN:mobitel3g
Proxy: 192.168.050.163
Port: 8080
MCC: 413
MNC: 01
Authentication Type: None
APN Type: Internet
rest of the fields i kept default values.

MMS:
Name: (MobitelMMS or something you fancy)
APN: wapmms
MMSC: http://192.168.050.165
MMS proxy: 192.168.050.163
MMS port: 8080
MCC: 413
MNC : 01
APN Type: mms
Authentication Type: None
rest of the fields i kept default values.

This configuration works but it seems ideally both of these settings should be configured in one APN. But the trouble is mobitel uses two different APN values (mobitel3g & wapmms) for internet and MMS therefore we cant use one configuration for both.

In the Access point names screen there's a radio button like selection, which i assume its there to select the default Access Point. I kept my Internet settings selected as default.
DONE!

Everything works fine but I see that phone has delays downloading MMS sometimes. Probably the phone switches between two Access Points upon failure trying to download MMS using Internet APN. If using the same APN for both becomes the standard then I believe Mobitel would adapt to that (sooner or) later!

Happy browsing!

Any chance the settings would be different for a Samsung Infuse?

Any chance the settings for a Samsung Infuse are the same as the tablet? I have a Mobitel Sim card and the instructions are for a Sony Ericsson and Nokia and the proxy and APN are different then what is posted here. So I am kinda confused. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks mdinuth for sharing updated settings for ICS. Luckily in my case existing settings from Gingerbread continued to work after OTA update of ICS. And when I check now settings are pretty much similar to what you have shared except for APN type, mine is "Not set". Well it works either way, great! :)

Ops... noticed your comment months later Matt B. Hope you have solved it :)
