Nokia releases update for Access Point; includes operator settings and improvements

Nokia Access Point

We've just received an update for Nokia's Access Point, a system app for consumers who utilise more than a single SIM. Access Point essentially makes it easy to manage multiple mobile operator settings for MMS, Internet and more. So what's new in the latest release?

Version includes mobile operator settings updates and some robustness improvements. Not a massive update, but we'll take the new additions over nothing. You can download Access Point from the Windows Phone Store.

Awweee wheb i read "Nokia updates" I thought it was gonna say "Nokia updates all lumias to gdr2 with amber" or something haha

Nazmi Lao says:

Hahaha same here - thought it was the GDR2 updates. I'm totally jealous of the HTC 8X users now LOL

Jaskys says:

Nothing amazing in GDR2, so get your hopes down, so you won't get upset after it comes to you.

xpxp2002 says:

The Xbox Music metadata improvements alone should be worth it. I'm tired of the phone randomly changing half of "Almeria (Deluxe)" to "Almeria," and other Xbox Music Pass-matched metadata to "Unknown Artist"/"Unknown Album".

eddz says:

Waiting for the same heading update gdr2

ttsoldier says:

Wish it would fix internet sharing :(

Josh Harman says:

What's wrong with your internet sharing?

ttsoldier says:

Been broken ever since 1308 firmware :(

pankaj981 says:

Internet sharing is broken for Rogers 920 on other carriers

ttsoldier says:

Got an unlocked Rogers but not using mobile.

flame l says:

I did unlocked my Rogers 920,mine is still working.Have you tried making up another apn,then select that one,then go back to your selected network.

pankaj981 says:

Yeah doesn't work

My 928 came unlocked. No Access Point app. Simply put in a T-Mobile sim and it worked like a charm.

RetroMan71 says:

Updated this about 3 hours ago.. Just saying!

ahandeman says:

Nokia taken a back seat to a failing HTC. wheres my GDR2!

rui.silva450 says:

Did HTC had so much work on GDR2 as Nokia? No! So it's normal this schedule

Josh Harman says:

Right, Amber will likely mean that Nokia's will have a longer wait.

sasukeluffy says:

What about L925? Why does it have Amber already..

Vistaus says:

Because the 925 was tested with Amber before it was released so they shipped it along while other devices are getting it as an UPDATE.

Oh wow... this time around I can actually VIEW the settings for AT&T profiles! Have only been able to Activate them previously.
So now I want to know... what's the difference between LTE1 being APN "PTA" and LTE2 being APN "PHONE"?
FWIW, I have mine toggled to LTE1 APN, and yes, Internet Sharing works great.

jdandison says:

Still no WiFi sharing on my unlocked ATT 920 on t-mobile.

prowade says:

How is the 920 on T-Mobile? Besides the WiFi sharing obviously haha

jdandison says:

It's been pretty good. 2-5 bars of LTE in Charlotte NC with speeds ranging 10-25 mbps. Everything else is working, MMS, phone, it's just the internet sharing that refuses to work. We drove to Michigan a few weeks ago and outside of the cities, it's definitely awful EDGE.

blackhawk556 says:

Because its unlocked

dougwallace says:

Internet Sharing fixed. Select another apn in accesspoint then set back to the right one. FIXED!

pankaj981 says:

Doesnt work for rogers 920 on tmobile

Jeff Neves says:

This update helps the Lumia 822 on T-Mobile.  The default "T-Mobile LTE" APN previously failed to configure MMS settings correctly and I would have to manually create a T-Mobile APN with the correct config for MMS to send/receive correctly.  After this update, you can now view the APN settings for any profile (new feature) and they've updated the default "T-Mobile LTE" APN to the correct settings for the 822 to work automatically with Access Point.  Now if only Nokia can rollout an update that fixes SMS from not sending when on T-Mobile's HSPA+ refarmed PCS spectrum for the 822 and I'll be set!

thinkdan says:

Is your 822 updated to Portico? I couldn't make mine work with any other carrier after updating and ended up flashing it to pre-Portico.

edjr07 says:

Please let this fix my mms problem...its making me go to another platform just because of that.

thaman04 says:

What mms problem?  If you unlocked your phone, that's a common issue with most phones (even non-Windows phones). It all depends on the apn or whatever carrier settings you have set up.

edjr07 says:

Nope regular att L920. I can't receive mms. I have to turn off data or change access point or restart to receive them. Its horrible.

ShoShoFresh says:

Having the SAME EXACT PROBLEM!!! Mine started acting up late June for the first time (Got the phone last November). I've been growing gray hair trying to figure this out!! Any luck on your end??

taymur says:

I lost the ability to connect to WIFI :S
keeps telling me incorrect password, so ideleted my password and now i have an open network, it changed the messege to cant reach network :S
WP8 is getting frustrating to me :S no wonder why nokia is losing :S

thaman04 says:

lol... WP8 is frustrating and nokia is 'failing' because you are having trouble with that?  right...
That sounds like an odd issue though. Try deleting that Wi-Fi network and re-adding it.

taymur says:

First of all this isn't my only issue, and if you take a quick look at the forum you will se how people are suffering from the platform, and I tried everything, my wifi is gone, I even hard reset my phone with no luck :( lost all game progress for nothing. What kills me the most is how better wp7 was :S

Amman Ahmed says:

Finger Cross, I have a problem with internet sharing on my NOKIA LUMIA 520,hope after this update it will fixed

cckgz4 says:

Cannot receive MMS. I have an AT&T sim in my 822, but I think it's unlocked

muvig says:

i have NL920, i have an issue with how the Os choose the access point to connect to, here is the senario, at my workplace we have about 6 access points (to cover about three floors) if you move from one floor to another there is no automatic switch to a point which has a strong signal, it remains locked to the access point which it was previous connected to, you have to manually change,
Why doesn't  the phone automatically switch to the access point which have the stronger signal if that point in known?
maybe there is something i have to do on the setting, help!

Lagejan says:

I was actually waiting for this. 

Lord Chabelo says:

Unlocked L920 on Tmobile here, when I first got the phone my texts did not work, I had to download Access Point and manually configure it to get it to work. Does this update break anything for Tmobile usesrs?

raycpl says:

Got this !!!
