Can anyone tell me please what APN settings I need for my 3 broadband sim card with HTC Desire please?

I have an Desire which was originally on O2, now unlocked, I put the 3 sim card in and it won’t connect(to internet) without the APN?
I have already tried:
Name: 3
APN: three.co.uk
Proxy:
Port:
Username:
Password:
Server: 3MMS
MMSC:
MMS Proxy: http://mms.um.three.uk:10021/mmsc
MMS Port: 8799
MMS Protocol: WAP 2.0
MCC: 234
MNC: 20
APN Type: Default
Cheers,
Happysteveo.

I'm in Ireland, so not 100% sure...but here 3 will block your phone/sim from accessing the web when you use a BB-sim in a phone. Usually here, it'll work not at all or, at most, for 1 session. And from what I see, you have the right settings.

had a look around: try APN name 3internet and leave everything else blank.
My phone's browser didn't render your post properly - the mms settings you have won't work, as your bb sim won't let you do mms afaik

Cool, thank for that. Someone else posted the settings on another forum which are all working now, hope it doesn't get blocked, I only want to use it for tethering to a tablet!
