Free Ufone internet on Android (Complete)

Hello all,

All around Pakistan, people are struggling to run free internet on android from ufone... here is a detailed walkthrough on activating and running internet with full functionality... with full support for browsing and running apps like facebook, whatsapp, kik, viber etc.. n not to forget skype :P

Activating Ufone Internet on Android


So here are the main settings:

1. MOST IMPORTANT: Deactivate GPRS and Activate only MMS (Use Ufone Self Care Portal)
2. Menu > Settings > Wireless & networks > Mobile networks > Data enabled: ON
3. Menu > Settings > Wireless & networks > Mobile networks > Access Point Names > NEW APN:

Name: Ufone Free
APN: ufone.pmms
Port: 8080
Username: *Leave Blank*
Password: *Leave Blank*
Server: *Leave Blank*
MMSC: *Leave Blank*
MMS Proxy: *Leave Blank*
MMS Port: *Leave Blank*
MCC: 410
MNC: 03
Authentication Type: None
APN Type: *Leave Blank*
APN Protocol: IPv4

4. Menu > Settings > Wireless & networks > Wi-Fi Settings > Advanced > Use static IP: ON

IP address: *Leave Blank*
Gateway: *Leave Blank*
Netmask: *Leave Blank*
DNS 1: or
DNS 2: or

Or simply you can give Google's DNS Servers : Primary: Secondary:

Workaround for changing DNS

If your set dont have dns settings, then you have to download an app from Google Play Store, named DNS Changer

Note: Internet Speed may vary upon AREA and Handset. I have EDGE im my Area of service so i get speeds from 10kB/s to 25KB/s

Problems with ufone.pmms

Many have faced this problem, when changing apn to ufone.pmms, thier edge sign (E) disappears. This is due to this configuration of the os ip configuration limits set by manufacturer... now when the phone connects to mms server, it gets ip address from the server, but doesnt get the dns thats why the phone reconises it as bad connection...
Now we can override this by a simple administrative tool builtin android system by following these steps...

1) Dial *#*#4636#*#*
2) Tap phone information
3) Scroll down and tap on TOGGLE DNS CHECK
4) NOW Wait for few seconds. .... done 
Now u will see the (E) sign is back

Another workaround for ufone.pmms problem

In some phone there is problem in getting into phone info menu with 4636 dail menu (as mentioned above)... we still have another way... 
Install this app (Network) from play store Link: and this will also work the same way the info menu supposed to do...

As the screen shows the the TOGGLE DNS CHECK have been tapped already...

WC21 should be the last official 2.3.6 and a ROM! So there is to do the idea of ​​a final version of the ROM, but usually too busy, on and off for more than a month before the spare time. BS! Play a day found no bugs, perfect, at least in his own heart, supporting the S3 price to a reasonable level should be no problem (I hope and ideas to see S3 version), we Liugejinian

1, Chinese the M130K official WC21 firmware to support Chinese and English language;
Amendment Chinese SMS program operators to correctly identify the GSM character, to amend the largest recipient (100), to write the content of messages more than six automatic conversion for MMS;
3, off by default the automatic dialing of network roaming, dual clock roam;
Amendments to communication records do not display the message record;
5, the amendment to reject the automatic SMS reply function;
6, for the M130K compile the drop-down six key switch, quick switch to increase the data network;
7, exclusive to crack Diopen input method support, Qwery, Jiugong, handwriting, full-screen handwriting four input method;
8, Galaxy S2, transparent weather and clock widget and odex of;
9, system components, the Galaxy S2, icons beautify;
10, repair of characters missing from the date of the lock screen "to repair the missing characters in the message dialogue program" Day ";
11, modify the Camera shutter button to mute (focus sound unmodified)
12, update the Google, Google search, Gmail, components
13, the ROM to minimize modifications system program odex, zipalign optimization

ROM is why the state does not ROOT release?
ROOT is very simple, but ROOT ROM restore the original clean ROM too much trouble, so according to their own ROOT.
The weather component why not use the data of Sina?
Do you think China's official weather forecast on the quasi-? AccuWeather weather data released by the independent company.

Best Firmware for Samsung Galaxy K

ROM: M130K_VF23_froer.MoD_v3.3_rooted (gingerbread 2.3.4)

KERNEL: Tegrak-Kernel-Build-25-for-M130K-VF23 (optional as this ROM is already rooted after install - this is just needed for applying the ext4 partition format)


- sms unlimited characters (no limitation - no need for go sms pro or handcent sms - no error)
- no korean apps (its like a generic unbranded rom)
- super fast ext4 partition format - use tegrak for this
- rooted already - enjoy!!!

this is based on my experience. after installing the rom, kernel and d tegrak app from google play please do not root your phone using tegrak app because it is already rooted and doing so will only unroot your phone (the only use of tegrak app is to apply lagfix all to convert your partition from rfs to ext4). also the superuser app will tell you that there is an update, please do so but never update it again right after even if it will say update again. doing it will also break the root status of your phone.

enjoy your superphone!
