Question about Motorola Mobility L6 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Unlocked L6 phone unable to surf the web

I bought an unlocked L6 off ebay and it works fine except I can't surf the web or send picture msgs (both related to media net). I spent an hour on the phone with AT&T tech support and after setting up media net server, it still doesn't work. I believe this is a UK phone as the menu's are slightly different. Does anyone know how to fix this??

    yes, I've set what they gave me as default, and I actually checked my phone and the settings are exactly identical as far as I can tell. Since I'm in the US and this phone came from the UK, it does not have AT&T (Media Net) setting preloaded. There has to be a setting that I'm not seeing. I fixed the inbox settings, but can anyone think of something I'm missing?????

    I called AT&T the first night and they verified that the service was still fine. I put her sim in my phone and was able to connect to medianet, no problem. I'm thinking there has to be a setting I'm missing, or will installing new firmwear (AT&T if possible) fix this.

    I think you mean "problem with the phone" if the sim worked in my phone but not in her her's, then it has to be the phone settings and not the sim. This is actually what the AT&T tech had me try when I called him.

Now you have the settings and I know this might sound dum but have you set them as your default?
if the phone is from the UK it should have the providers settings or names preloaded in the phone.
find your providers name now you have the settings and select them.

    if they have given you all the settings has anyone from AT&T bothered to activate it on your service?

    sorry now you lost me

    when you say you put her sim in your phone and medianet worked fine this would suggest that the phone settings are correct and the prob lies in the sim.

    maybe the sim you are using is an older version and might need to be replaced.

    IF THIS is the case make sure you back up your info from the sim to the phone first.

Sending picture msgs using t-mobile sim card service not at&t. Gsm unlocked phone.

if your phone is gsm lock to a certain network you cant really send text messages. The first thing you need to do is unlock the phone so you can use any network providers sim card. Try getting the phone. But remember that unlock codes are not free there are sites that sells them for a minimal amount..hope this info has helped you in anyway..

Motorola A780

the a780 handset only has the o2 network as default.
to have your phone run with another network sim card, you must call your phone company,ie t-mobile,orange,etc and explain to them you need the browser update msg sent to your handset for picture msgs and also ask for the internet browser update msg too.
when you get the browser msgs sent to your phone, open it and press the left green button, i think? it will give the option to update, you press update.

and all done, happy picture msg. andy. :0)

I can't send picture

the phone being unlock does not mean it can send pics....if you are having problems sending pic msgs.....then you need to check with your mobile provider it could be a network problem or they may not have that feature activated on your mobile.

this is because your providers setting are not on this phone.
you need to ask your provider to send the setting to your new phone and then save them. then send a pic to your self to set the settings with the network
