For those of you that are trying to configure MMS and Internet on an unlocked LG Cookie (KP500) for use on T–Mobile’s network, you’ve come to the right place.
I recently purchased one, and while there is a wealth of knowledge on various forums, I’ve found that some of the information to be either inaccurate or out of date. Because of this, I’ve compiled my own list that I can confirm works for me as of the date of this post.
Ready to start? Here we go...
First, you'll need to set up an Access Point. To do this, go to:
Note: In regards to the APN, if you have issues with this value, you can also choose from: wap.voicestream.com OR epc.tmobile.com OR internet3.voicestream.com.
Personally, I recommend starting with internet2.voicestream.com then working your way down the list. The main reason I am making this suggestion is that I have found that this node works perfectly fine with my previous phone’s $10 per month unlimited internet plan. Using any of the other APNs results in a warning telling me that I must upgrade my internet plan.
Note: You can actually set Homepage to any page you want, but I have listed the normal T–Mobile landing page. From here you can see a snapshot of news from CNN or visit My Account to see how many minutes, texts, etc. you have left.
After you’ve configured all of the above settings, I would suggest power–cycling your phone (turning it off then back on) before trying anything. This could save you a bit of grief, as I’ve run into situations where I had everything set up correctly, but features such as the MMS simply refused to work.
