    Hey guys,

    I just finished moving to Colombia (since my job required it), and since I knew I was going to be here for six months, I decided to buy an unlock code for my Focus, and acquire a mobile plan here.
    Unlock code worked fine, I am able to send, receive calls and SMS, but I just can't seem to get my data working properly.
    I already called my Carrier (Tigo), and they told me to fill out the following under APN:

    TIGO Colombia WEB Settings:
    Connection Name : Tigo Web
    Access Point Name (APN) : web.colombiamovil.com.co
    User Name : Blank
    Password : Blank
    Gateway IP : 200.058.228.081
    Port : 8080
    Authentication: Normal

    but the thing is my phone only allows me to fill out:
    APN
    User Name
    Password
    Proxy Server / URL
    Proxy Port

    Someone recommended me to download the Wifi manager from Samsung Apps, but it's not compatible with the Focus >.>
    does anyone have a solution for this?

    Put "web.colombiamovil.com.co" in for the APN

    I did, and the Data plan only works like 1/15th of the time. I know it's not the carrier - tried the sim on an other phone and it worked like a charm.

    Then I would try putting, "200.058.228.081" in for the APN. If that doesn't work you'll probably need to take your phone to a Tigo store and see if they can help you.

    Network Profile is the one that works with the Focus, is that the one you've tried?

    That didn't work but thanks for the suggestion! :)

    I downloaded that one too, but Idk how it works..


    The option is set to ON, and the Active profile is ATT. When i click on the box to selects profiles, it only displays ATT.

    Oh, ugh...I was thinking of Wireless Manager for the Gen 1.5 phones--that's the one that allows you to change the APN. Can't use that one on the Focus, of course.

    Well, I'd try putting the web.colombiamovil.com.co part in the Proxy/URL line, and something like "Tigo" or "Tigo Columbia" in the APN line.

    That's all I've got :blush:

    I noticed something recently, data usage such as Youtube and file downloads work seamlessly... yet apps like Facebook, Whatsapp and even the integrated MSN/Facebook chat... those won't work.

    any more suggestion guys?

    I would guess YouTube and file downloads work because they use Port 80, whereas the others might not.

    Instead of Port 8080 in the APN settings, try just 80?

    what should i put under Proxy Server / URL?

    I would think web.colombiamovil.com.co goes there. Like on ATT, I had to put something.cingular.com in the URL blank...

    I was told by another WP user that It might have something to do with the SIM card.
    My SIM card says 64KB on it... The other WP user has a different Carrier, Same phone, but his sim says 128KB. Worked fine on my phone!
