Internet Settings Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini - Internet Settings

New Member

Hi Guys, I've recently moved from Meteor Ireland to 3 Ireland and have brought across my samsung Galaxy S4 mini however , the 3G will not work and the internet is very slow - I've called 3 customer care who told me to play around with the settings which I have dont to no avail. I have tried multiple google searches. I also called into a 3 store in Dublin who didnt know what to do

 

Can someone tell me how to get my 3G working – its just regular slow internet at the moment

Run a speedtest and report back with your speeds.

Your not going to get 4G until the cell your in will be upgraded to 4G, so for now it will be slower speeds than you had with meteor

Hi Starz - I dont have an "MMS Protocol" I have an APN one  with 3 settings

 

1) IPv4

2)IPv6

3)IPv4/IPv6 

 

There is also a "APN Roaming Protocol" with the exact same settings

 

as things stand I can get internet with a "H" or "H+" at the top of my phone but not the "3G" or "4G" i had with meteor

You will probably notice a lack of coverage/speeds due the current three "Big Upgrade"

Restart your phone after making the changes.

Hi @tommyg2000

 

the settings need to match otherwise nothing will work!

 

try these ones here...

 

Name: 3
APN: 3ireland.ie
Username: None
Password: None

MMSC: http://mms.um.3ireland.ie:10021/mmsc

MMS proxy: mms.3ireland.ie
APN type: default,mms,supl

 

 

To check your internet settings:

 

    1. From the homescreen, tap Apps

 

    1. Tap Settings

 

    1. Tap More settings

 

    1. Tap Mobile networks

 

    1. Tap Access Point Names

 

    1. Tap 3 and make sure the settings are:

 

Name: 3
APN: 3ireland.ie
Username: None
Password: None

MMSC: http://mms.um.3ireland.ie:10021/mmsc

MMS proxy: mms.3ireland.ie
APN type: default,mms,supl

 

    1. If you can't see 3, tap Menu then New APN and enter the details above

 

You should now be connected to the internet.

Hi Guys,

This still wont work - I have one default APN called O2 Ireland - So I
have 2 options here either create a new APN called "3" as follows

Name: 3
APN: 3ireland.ie
Username: None
Password: None

MMSC: http://mms.um.3ireland.ie:10021/mmsc

MMS proxy: mms.3ireland.ie
APN type: default,mms,supl

When I do this it disapears after I push save

The other option is to amend the existing APN called "O2 Ireland" with
these settings but again when I push save that to disapears

Just to note I can connect to the internet using mobile data - I just cant
get the "3G" or "4G" at the top of my phone like when I uses my S4 Mini on
the meteor network
