HTC Wildfire - MMS Settings Query

Hi All,
I've been trawling the discussion boards for MMS Settings for my unlocked HTC Wildfire. I have the following for both Web & MMS Settings:
Web
Name: O2 WEB Postpay
APN: mobile.o2.co.uk
Proxy:
Port:
Username: O2web
Password: password
Server:
MMSC:
MMS proxy:
MMS port:
MMS protocol: WAP 2.0
MCC: 234
MNC: 10
Authentication type: PAP
APN type: default
MMS
Name: O2 MMS Postpay
APN: wap.o2.co.uk
Proxy: 193.113.200.195
Port: 8080
Username: o2wap
Password: password
Server:
MMSC: http://mmsc.mms.02.co.uk:8002
MMS proxy: 193.113.200.195
MMS port: 8080
MMS protocol: WAP 2.0
MCC: 234

I have sent out an MMS which should be included in my tariff but when I sent it I got the HDSPA symbol with the arrows flashing and when i've gone onto "My O2" i've been charged 85p for data usage under wap.o2.co.uk. Can anybody help me as to why i'm being charged for this or this normal for this phone??
P.s. the green dot is highlighted on the O2 WEB Postpay.
Many thanks.

Re: HTC Wildfire - MMS Settings Query

Your settings look ok, if you've only just joined O2 the account may not be fully set up.
They should be able to credit you for any charges made in error.

Re: HTC Wildfire - MMS Settings Query

I've been with O2 for 10 years so I don't think that would be the problem. I just don't understand why i've been charged for the data when it was a MMS message I sent.

Re: HTC Wildfire - MMS Settings Query

I think you'll have to query it with O2, I have the same phone with unlimited data, and get no charges.

Re: HTC Wildfire - MMS Settings Query

Surely your MMS settings should have an APN type of MMS? The correct settings are in the Mobile Guide on the O2 website.
Do you have a data allowance, because without it an Android phone is going to be expensive to run (you'll pay the web daily charge most days as the phone syncs etc)
No - there isn't an app for it.

Re: HTC Wildfire - MMS Settings Query

No I don't have a data bolt on but surely this shouldn't make any difference for MMS? I've also been charged for receiving an MMS.

Re: HTC Wildfire - MMS Settings Query

MMS uses data, SMS doesn't and MMS isn't included with any text allowance.
There are some new packages coming which include an MMS allowance, but they also include data.

The phone uses data for other things so you will be charged for that. if you disable data then you won't be able to send or receive MMS. The closet you can get is an app like APNdroid which will try to disable data but keep MMS.
No - there isn't an app for it.

Re: HTC Wildfire - MMS Settings Query

Sorry to drag up an older thread but I have an Android handset with data etc, and I have always been charged for all mms I send.
