Hey guys,

Does anyone know what the iPhone 4 profile settings are for the new data service? Not the UMB but the 100MB / $10 service. I have tried the old APN settings but it doesn't work.

Thank you.

Thanks for the reply but the suggestion did not work.

I call Speakout CS and they said they have been getting a lot of calls regarding this issue. It sounds like the service may not be available for iPhone users at this time:(

I know nothing about Iphones and don't wish to but the apn of internet.com and password of wap with no userid works with Android. Perhaps that helps?

Can someone confirm the specific 'configuration profile settings' for using the new data plan with an Iphone. I've had no success thus far.

Has anyone had success with the following:

APN: internet.com
User Name: 'left blank'
Password: wap
Proxy Server: 'left blank'
Port: 'left blank'

Thanks!

Simply removing the SIM card and putting it back in got the data working for me on my iPhone 4S, I have no apn on it either

Did you change any settings in the iPhone installed configuration profile or is this profile no longer necessary for Speakout Data?

“What are the data settings?”

“In order to access the new SpeakOut data plans, program your device with the following settings:
APN: rogers-core-appl1.apn

MMSC: http://mms.gprs.rogers.com

MMS Proxy: mmsproxy.rogers.com

MMS Port: 80

APN Type: Default

APN Protocol: IPv4/IPv6

APN Roaming Protocol: IPV4/IPv6

If you need assistance adding these settings into your phone, please contact your handset manfacturer.”

Just an update - I did load the following via the Iphone config. utility, completed a hard reset and had success:

APN: internet.com
User Name: 'left blank'
Password: wap
Proxy Server: 'left blank'
Port: 'left blank'

I had no luck with any other setup I found posted in the forums.

I spoke to Speakout customer service and was told that data plans became available Oct 7 but they are giving a 2 month grace period where the UMB plans are still available (until Dec 7), if you already have an active UMB add-on. They will not be automatically switching users to the data plan, but you can call to have them switch you over any time (if desired). On Dec 7 the data plan will not auto-activate, and will have to be activated manually on the website.

Thats interesting. My UMB expired on Saturday and I received the "your new service feature is now active.." text. As my data no longer worked, I had to change to the new settings, and I'm assuming that I have been automatically renewed on the new 100mb plan?

Thanks for these setttings, they worked for me on an iPhone 5. Tried the rogers-core-appl1.apn so many times with no luck. Also tried having the phone pick up the apn didn't work.
Curious as to where you found these settings?

I'm specifically asking i8gnocchi where he found THESE settings:

APN: internet.com
User Name: 'left blank'
Password: wap
Proxy Server: 'left blank'
Port: 'left blank'

They worked for me while the ones from the speakout website did not.

Pete7383,

I vaguely recall finding those settings in some Rogers forum I stumbled upon during my hours of hunting for a solution. I figured I'd try the settings that were posted considering I had absolutely no luck with any other setup I tried. Similar to your experience they worked for me.

During my struggle to get the 'open' data to work I even called customer service and asked them what the specific profile setting for an Iphone is considering on the website the company advertises that the service and an Iphone are compatible. I was told to use the settings as detailed on the website - I said they don't work or I'm not entering them correctly – the response back to me was they DO work and use them as they are - I said walk me through the steps please – the response back was you have all you need per the website info. This back and forth went on for a few minutes until I gave up.

I am still puzzled why some people are stating they are getting the data to work without a profile setting after resetting and popping their sim out and back in. Tried this with no success.

i8gnocchi,

I shared your struggles in trying to get the new data to work – loaded and reloaded numerous configuration profiles and doing the reset network thing. I too could not get the iPhone to pick up the APN automatically so am also confused on how others were so "lucky".

Someone posted this on rfd but note they are using a Android:
2. The reason I was having problems connecting is that SO's APN settings as posted on their website are incorrect, at least for my phone (a rooted Galaxy Nexus.) When I switched to Data and rebooted my phone I got a new Robbers APN, rogers-core-appl1.apn, automatically. That one worked for me. The APN settings I had been trying are the ones SO posts on their site in their FAQ. They are slightly different and don't work for me. In particular SO's APN specifies an MMS Proxy of mmsproxy.rogers.com rather than Robbers' 10.128.1.69. For some reason the former doesn't work for me but the explicit IP address does.

I'm not gonna bother to try it and will stick with the internet.com apn since it's working. Would be interesting to know if there's a speed difference depending on which APN you're using…

I've spent countless hours trying to get this to work on iPhone 4. Thanks for this thread, I finally got data to work!

Just a recap for other Speakout Customers with an iPhone:

-Install "Apple Configurator" on Mac OSX Mavericks (I'm sure windows is similar):
-Create a profile for APN with the settings:
APN: internet.com
User Name: 'left blank'
Password: wap
Proxy Server: 'left blank'
Port: 'left blank'

Plug in your phone and follow the on-screen instructions.
I didn't even need to reboot my phone, it worked immediately!

UL: 1.11 Mbps
