Question about HTC Hero Smartphone

1 Answer

Meteor settings required for HTC hero please.

I bought a HTC hero sim free and I'm on the meteor PAYG network. I cant send or receive pic msgs and Im guessing its because I haven't downloaded the meteor settings. I tried to do this from their website but it doesn't work as meteor don't support the HTC hero.
I really hope I havent wasted my money on this phone as whats the point if it cant do something as simple as receive or send picture messages.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

I'm a HTC Hero user on Meteor BillPay. Had the same problem and got the following solution from Meteor support which worked for me. On the phone, navigate to :

- Settings
- Wireless Controls
- Mobile Network Settings
- Access Point Names
- Meteor Data
- APN Type

Change the value here to the word "default".

Restart the phone and bob's your uncle. I did this and it worked a treat.
