This time Tweakker is giving you a helping hand by posting manual settings for Consumer Cellular, an network operator in USA that uses AT&T service. As you all noticed Tweakker supports only T-mobile and AT&T at the moment, therefore we cannot deliver automatic configuration message to other networks. It has been many requests from customer cellular users and we are willing to share the manual settings with you, try to set them up on your mobile devices.
If you are using your own phone with your Consumer Cellular plan, you can sign up for one of connect plans for messaging and web browsing:
Sign up for the Connect! service:
Log in to My Account.
Click “Change Services” in the box on the right.
Select the Connect! plan that best fits your needs.
Select “Messaging” and “Data (Web)” for the different phones on your plan. You can decide which phones receive each service. Turning off one of the services for a selected phone, or for all phones, does not affect the price of the plan.
Configure your phone to work with the Connect! service. Each phone is different, so you will need to refer to your phone’s user manual to find out how to change the following settings:
Service Name: MMS
Proxy Address: proxy.mvno.ccmobileweb.com
Proxy Port: 80
Proxy Push: Disabled
Authentication Type: Secure
GPRS access point: att.mvno
Service Name: WEB
Proxy Push: Enabled
Authentication Type: Secure
GPRS access point: att.mvno

I persuaded Consumer Cellular to turn on the Connect! service for my "unsupported" phone (LG 365GT aka "LG Neon"). This phone supports MMS, has a browser, takes pictures and video.
So I am trying to configure the phone to "talk" to Consumer Cellular's system, but so far it is not working. Below are the settings that I have adapted from the recommendations above:
Settings > Connection > Access Points: I made a "new" Access Point, and called it "Consumer Cellular". The values listed in it are:
Name: Consumer Cellular
Primary Server: 0.0.0.0
Secondary Server: 0.0.0.0
Messaging > Message Settings > Multimedia Message > Network Profile: I made a "new" Network Profile and called it "Consumer Cellular". The values listed in it are:
Profile name: Consumer Cellular
Internet mode: HTTP with proxy
Proxy IP: proxy.mvno.ccmobileweb.com
Proxy Port: 80
Connection: Consumer Cellular
After I created these settings I turned the phone off, then on again. Tried to send a MMS (with a photo) to my Twitter account. But a couple minutes later, I got an alert back saying, "Unable to send message to"
However, if I send a message to Twitter WITHOUT attaching a photo, it goes right through and appears on my Twitter page.
My signal strength meter has 4 or 5 bars, and the "E" symbol is there, signifying that I have access to "EDGE". Am I setting up this phone correctly, or doing something bone-headed?
EMPLOYEE0That is a bugger:/
Maybe you can try and reset the phone to factory settings and then try to set it up again. Values should be correct so if MMS is enabled with CC you should be able to send MMS with these installed correctly.
I'm sorry we can't be of more help...
All the best

I have an unlocked AT&T Motorola Q9H. My Consumer Cellular phone and text work find but cannot figure how to config data with the settings for their NON CONSUMER CELLULAR phones. My GRPS settings are not like they show.
Proxy Address proxy.mvno.ccmobileweb.com
Proxy Port 80
Proxy Push Disabled Enabled
Authentication Type Secure Secure
GPRS access point att.mvno att.mvno

MY Q9H Silver shows settings asks like
SECURE WAP NETWORK
Here I tried att.mnvo
THEN YOU HAVE TO GO INTO SETTINGS AND GOTO " PROXY"
I'm trying to use my own phone with my Connect Plan! through Consumer Cellular. Messaging works but can't connect to the web. I saw this post and tried to enter the setting you provided at the top of this post in my samsung galaxy s2 but still not working. The Samsung Galaxy S2 has a few different setting like MCC & MNC, here's how the S2 setting fields look
I can not save the Access Point if the MCC and MNC fields are left blank so I tried entering 310 and 410 which is what these setting are on the APN that was created when I inserted the CC Sim card in my phone.
There also seems to be other issues like not being able to set the Authentication Type as (Secure ). The only options for this on the S2 are Internet, MMS, SUPL and Internet +MMS+SUPL which is the setting on the APN that was created when I inserted the CC Sim card in my phone.
What do I need to do different to configure the S2 to cannect to 3G on Consumer cellular?
I looked into Tweakker app as you suggested above and they do not have APN settings for my carrier Consumer Cellular.
The setting y' all have posted here are the same as those on my carrier's web site but as I mentioned above my phone does not have an space to enter a proxy push setting and no option for Secure Authentication Type.
Any other thoughts?
I had problems setting up data on an HTC Inspire (unlocked, not rooted) on Consumer Cellular. I ran the Tweakker app a couple of times. It installed and ran fine, and appeared to support Consumer Cellular, but it couldn't get a data connection to work. (Running the Tweakker app did successfully delete the locked ATT APN profiles that came with the phone, which I think needed to be deleted and which I couldn't figure out how to delete manually.) Eventually got data (both web and mms) to work with guesswork. Here are the manual settings that worked for me. Hope these help.

One of the differences between Ellen's HTC and my Galaxey S2 is there is no option on the S2 to set MMS protocol WAP 2.0. The S2 only has options for MMS proxey and MMS port settings. However I don't believe this is associated with my problem of not being able to connect to our Connect Data Plan because text messaging and email works fine. My only problem is not connecting with 3G network. The other difference between HTC and S2 is the APN type which may be part of the problem? My S2 only has options for Internet + MMS, Internet and MMS; no option for default,supl. I have tried all the combinations of setting S2 has options for but still no luck making connection.My S2 is a completly unlocked and rooted phone and there is no stock APN profiles on the phone. Consumer Cellular told me data connect would not work on phones they don't sell or support. Can that be true?
What else can I try?
I have a Samsung Solstice a887 phone, and I have Consumer Cellular service, I have a non-CC phone, they did send me a new sim card, and after activation, the phone works and I can text, but I can't get web access, I do have their data plan. Does anyone have instructions on how to configure this phone, it is unlocked. I called CC support and they want me to buy one of their phones, and were not very much help. I could not figure out how to set proxy push to enabled, and I could not find GPRS access to enter: att.mvno. Any help would be appreciated.
Im getting a Samsung Captivate i897, but I don't know if consumer cellular will work on it, because I heard u can't type in the GPRS access thingy. Does connect! provide 3g on the phones running on consumer cellular, or does it only provide GPRS, (whcih I heard it's so much slower than 3g)? I don't know if Samsung Captivate can run on GPRS. If it doesn't, would tweakker enable messaging and web on GPRS on that phone? Please help!
Everytime I try to run tweakker the wifi turns off right as it starts to work(right after selecting consumer cellular). I don't know why this is happening. I'm logged into my own secured router for wifi access. Another problem I have is that I can't get rid of Tmobile when the sim card is swapped out for the CC one. It tells me that I need to call 611 for Tmobile cust serv. The phone is unlocked with the code from Tmobile. Could I possibly have a bad sim card? The inner small sim card broke away from the larger one but I was able to put them together and insert it. Possible problem there? I just want to use my phone and right now it's an expensive bookweight. Tmobile MyTouch 4G(HTC Glacier)
