What are the Fizz network settings (APN)?

An Access Point Name (APN) has the network settings your phone needs to connect to Fizz. The APN must be properly configured so your phone can be “introduced” to the Fizz network. Once your APN is configured, you’ll have access to your mobile data and multimedia messaging (MMS). Even with a poorly configured APN, you’ll be able to make and receive calls and texts. You will also have internet access when connected to a Wi-Fi network. Removing the SIM card from a phone with properly configured network settings (APN) could automatically reset the previous settings. If this happens, you’ll need to reconfigure the Fizz network settings. Installing network settings (Android) By inserting your SIM card in your phone, you’ll receive two notifications to configure the network settings. Install these two configurations. If a PIN code is required, enter 1234. Wait three minutes and completely restart (power cycle) your phone. Resend the network parameters (APN) to your phone (Android) Log into your Fizz account and follow this path:My plans → Manage plan → Advanced parameters → Fizz network parameters → Resend me the notifications You’ll receive two (2) notifications directly on your phone: one to configure mobile data and the other to configure multimedia messaging (MMS). Install these two (2) configurations. If a PIN code is required, enter 1234. If you inserted your SIM card into a device unknown to the Fizz mobile network, chances are you received a SMS inviting you to follow the above instructions. Manually installing network settings (Android) Steps to follow for configuring the APN can vary from one phone to another. Here's an example: Settings → Connections → Mobile networks → Access Point Names → APN Fizz APN settings are: APN: mobile.bm MMSC: http://mms.mobile.bm MMS proxy: mmsproxy.mobile.bm MMS port: 80 APN type: default,mms,supl If your phone
FAQ

There is a delay before I receive text messages or multimedia text messages (SMS and MMS). Why?

When a phone tries to send a text message or a multimedia text message when it does not have access to the mobile network, delivery of the message may be delayed. Conversely, when a message cannot be routed to a phone because it is out of range of the mobile network, the message will remain on hold until it can be delivered. Troubleshooting: Restart your phone Reboot (power cycle) your phone by holding down the phone’s start button for 10 seconds. Following your reboot, your applications will load. Your phone will then re-authenticate to the Fizz mobile network and potentially recover its authorization to access the network. Is it with multiple users? Determine if this is an issue affecting one or many users. It is important to know if the issue occurs when you are messaging just one person, or many different people. Do several tests, using the same type of message, with different people. If the situation occurs with only one other user, it could be a type of non-compatible text encoding between the two phones. If the situation arises with all other users, it may be necessary to reset your phone to its factory settings. Test with another phone If possible, do a test using a different mobile phone. If you have access to a phone that is compatible with the Fizz mobile network, insert your Fizz SIM card into this phone and see if you can reproduce the problem. This will tell you if your phone is the source of the problem. If the issue cannot be reproduced and is therefore limited to your phone, it may be necessary to reset your phone to its default settings. If the issue does occur on the second phone, there could be an issue with our systems. Report this issue

    MMS does not work with Private DNS?

    Multimedia messages do not work while Private DNS is enabled. This isn't a question per se, but I wanted to post my solution on the Fizz Community Hub in case anyone else has a similar issue. My Huawei Mate 10 Pro has this under Settings > Wireless & networks > Private DNS. This option needs to be disabled otherwise MMS does not work. Hope this helps someone.
