Setting up Android based phones for Crazy Johns

posted this on December 01, 2010 01:52 PM

Crazy Johns have advised the following setup process for all Android based phones on the Crazy Johns network:

Please note that if there is an option for a setting in the APN configuration on your phone and you can't see it below then leave it blank and skip to the next option.


It is best to perform a factory reset on your phone before adding these settings.  Factory resets can be performed by doing the following procedure.  Please note that this procedure will wipe the data from your phone so please backup all data, contacts, photos, etc before proceeding:

Select 'Settings' then SD & Phone storage, then select Factory data reset and follow the prompts.

If your Android phone won't connect to any data, either via the browser, email, chat or through apps - you have previously been able to connect to data - try the following:

  • Go into flight mode (long press the power button, then select Flight Mode) and back out of Flight Mode again.
  • If this fails then restart the handset.

Next check the APN's:

Your Android phone might come with Crazy John’s Internet settings already installed. If it doesn’t, just follow these instructions to set up your connection.

Navigate to the Access Point Names screen:

  • From the Google Account login screen: press the menu button, press Wireless settings, then press Access Point Names. Or,
  • From the home screen: press the menu button, press Settings, press Wireless and network, press Mobile networks, then press Access Point Names.

Ensure all existing APNs are deleted. Just click on each one, press the menu button, then press Delete APN.

You’ll need to create two APNs: one for Internet and one for MMS. To create each new APN: in the APNs screen press the menu button, then press New APN. Only edit the fields listed below.
