Globe WAP/MMS/Streaming settings for Nokia N95

A couple of days ago, my aunt once more asked me to help configure her Nokia N95’s WAP/MMS/Streaming settings for Globe.

Like clock work, I called Globe’s Customer Service, gave them the handset unit, my aunt’s mobile number and requested that they send the settings via SMS message which was the easiest way. The other options would be to ask for the settings one-by-one and configure the phone manually, which is very troublesome when done over the phone. The least viable option would be to personally take the phone to a Globe Business Center and have their agents configure it there.

We expected to receive the settings immediately after the call ended, as this is what happened before when we asked for the settings of our earlier phones. Oddly enough, the settings never arrived via SMS, the obligatory 24-48 hours of waiting passed and still no settings have been received.

On the third day of waiting, I decided to call Customer Services again. But the Christmas season may have already caused high traffic on Globe’s networks as my call was dropped three times.

Growing frustrated, but decided not to let loose on the hapless CS agent, I just gave them my email address and requested that they send the settings there instead, so that I could configure the phone manually.

After tinkering around with the Nokia N95, I finally got it working, this is confirmed by sending a test MMS message to my aunt’s number. I even had the spare time to configure the phone to connect to my home Wi-Fi network, so that my aunt could do some web surfing is she so pleases.

I think the same settings would for the Nokia N9x series because the PDF file Globe sent me indicated that it’s the same settings for the Nokia N91.

For others who would like to have their WAP/MMS/Streaming settings configured, simply call Globe’s Customer Service Number 211, and if you can do it manually, simply give them your email address for them to send the configuration settings in PDF format.

  1. Hi! My name is Nabil and I’m from Sweden.

    Here, our operators just put that stuff on their website so you really don’t have to go through the hassle of either calling or sending them an e-mail. You just visit their website and visit the page.

    If that doesn’t work out – you Google it! And find the page ranking #1.

    Shouldn’t that be the case with Globe? I mean, their PDF has got to be somewhere.

    • Hi Nabil, certainly things are better off in Sweden. Here in the Philippines, us consumers have to put up with below-satisfactory services from operators who think of us as cash cows instead of customers.

      They also have a penchant for rebuilding their websites that bookmarked pages with useful information often get lost. If it doesn’t it is most likely that the information is grossly outdated.

    • @scrufus – Nice, but most people would not think of doing this and normally, Globe would just send the settings to their phone via SMS.

      Manual configuration would only be needed if Globe fails to send the settings.
