Generally, most mobile devices will automatically self-configure when they detect a new SIM in the device, and require no End User manipulation of settings, however there may be a few issues causing a device to not auto-configure with the correct settings for the Pharmacy Telco service:
1. The device has pre-set settings for a specific carrier
2. The device recognises a Pharmacy Telco SIM card as a Telstra retail SIM and applies an APN suited to Telstra retail.
In order for a service to operate correctly, the device should have a configuration with correct settings;
The main settings that may need configuration are:
– SMSC (SMS Message Centre) to send SMS
– Access Point Name (APN) for data connections
– MMSC (MMS Message Centre) to send MMS
The SMSC for MEA’s services is: +61418706275
