Rogers APN Data Settings for Desire Z

So if you’ve managed to get a Bell Desire Z while still being a rogers customer, here are the settings for getting your 3G Data working:

To do this, simply go to:

  • Settings -> Wireless & networks -> Mobile Networks -> Access Point Names
  • Hit the Menu Key and select New APN
  • Enter the settings as follows:
    Name: Rogers
    Username: wapuser1
    Password: wap
    MCC: 302 (Default Value)
    MNC: 720 (Default Value)
  • Leave everything else blank
  • Hit Menu and Save
  • Activate the new APN by clicking in the little circle next to its name
  • You should see a little 3G pop up in the status bar withing a few seconds and if you are in a good area you will see an H come up as well.
  • If for some reason things arent working properly, just pop your battery out and put it back in.
    • although you might see the 3G in the corner, it doesn’t always work properly until you do a battery pull
  • It is likely that your MMS will not be working either. In order to fix that, simple add a second APN as follows:
    Name: Rogers MMS
    Username: media
    Password: mda01
    MMSC :
    MMS Proxy:
    MMS Port: 80
    MCC: 302
    MNC: 72
    APN Type: mms
  • Leave all other settings blank
  • Hit Menu and save
  • If you did this properly, you will see it in the list with the APN you created earlier. You should not see a little circle next to the Rogers MMS APN (this is because as an MMS APN it does not need to be set to active – its used in the background for MMS only) If you do happen to see the circle next to it, you probably forgot the last step in the above settings: APN Type: mms

    Hi thanks for your help but i still cant get my mms messaging to work. Ive tried resetting the phone and still nothing. Im still getting a network error when trying to download an picture message sent to me. Any ideas?

      Have you gotten your MMS to work? I've tried every bloody set of APN settings for my desire z on Rogers and I still haven't gotten any picture messages to send.

    will this work in canada?

    • Firstsearchblue

      Yep – they only work in Canada

  • I can't get my MMS apn set up, after I click save it goes back to the APN screen and it's not there. Only the 3g for Rogers.

    what if my desire is bought over seas but i wanna use it on the rogers network ???

    • Ryan Cook

      and no matter what i do all i get is edge

      • Firstsearchblue

        ahh, that sucks man.

        I'm sure there is only one set of bands used by desire z's so the phone itself should 100% with with Roger's 3G.

        Lately I dont use the apn settings anymore since cyanogen mod (sick rom for your desire z) comes with all of them. If your tech savvy you should try this out: (root and install cyanogen mod according to the steps here)
        One of the steps requires flashing the radio, there's a decent possibility that's why yours doesn't work – the radio firmware from overseas isn't compatible with what we need here..

  • and the correct APN settings are… (you only need one for Data and MMS)
