SpeakOut, Rogers and my beautiful SGS2

Looks like Data usage on SpeakOut may be an issue (or may be not..). I started gathering some info on configuring appropriate APN.

Picked up some wisdom from howardforums :

Name: Rogers
APN: goam.com
Proxy: <not set>
Port: <not set>
Username: wapuser1
Password: wap
Server: <not set>
MMSC: <not set>
MMS proxy: <not set>
MMS port: <not set>
MCC: 302
MNC: 720
Authentication type: None
APN type: <not set>

and it looks like that would limit use down to Mozilla and other browsers that have proxy settings.

# Run Fennec, and in address bar type: about:config. This will take you to the advanced configuration panel.
# Now you need to find proxy entries, to simplify that you can filter it out by taping proxy in the field below address bar.
# Modify network.proxy.http and network.proxy.http_port to your proxy server and port. (Proxy, Port 80)
# You can also modify network.proxy.ssl and network.proxy.ssl_port to be able to access https addresses. (Proxy, Port 9203)
# Set network.proxy.type value to 1.

So fun is not over just yet…. It also looks like above IP is the same IP that pops from default Rogers APN when you reset device. I’ll have to get “browsing” activated to tinker with it a bit more…
