1.Smart GPRS
  • Access Point Name or APN: smart1
  • Proxy Server Address:
  • Proxy port number:  8080 or 9201 (input only 1 port number on your mobile phone)

This is what we can see when we go to our phones connectivity settings.  If you’re using older phones chances are you can’t edit or you can’t set these proxy details as it on pre-configure once you received the saved the configuration settings pushed by Smart on your phone. But don’t worry you can still set this proxy number and port by using Prov File Maker, with this tool you can set any proxy on your phone that has no options to edit proxy settings. Newer phone that has Windows, Android, Blackberry and iOS has already these settings.

2. Smart Internet
  • Access Point Name or APN: internet
  • Proxy Server Address:  (no proxy)
  • Proxy Port number: 8080 (no port)

Do note that you may not use proxy and port on these Smart Internet settings. Just leave fields empty, none or not set, you can still connect to the internet without adding the proxy and port as long as you internet the APN ‘internet’.

3. Smart MMS
  • Access Point Name or APN: mms
  • Proxy Server Address:  
  • Proxy Port number: 8080 or 9201

This setting is for MMS, if you want to send picture messages from your phone to your friend’s number who’s using a MMS capable phone. You need to input those proxy and port details above in your phone APN settings.
