Speakout data and android... calling all users for tips/tricks.
This thread was all about Speakout back when Speakout had Unlimited 'mobile browsing' (UMB) which was a crippled data path only allowing web browsing. The community found ways around that and this thread was part of spreading that information.
Now in 2014 they have discontinued the UMB and brought in real data plans. So i have no idea how relevant this first post is at all anymore.
END EDIT 2014
So i finally got my optimus one setup and running on the speakout $10/month 'browsing' plan. I'm looking for the community to share all their tips/tricks to see how many different apps we can get working or alternative ways to do things that are just plain blocked by the speakout browsing plan.
I'll start. Setup your apn as such and you'll be able to browse.
APN : goam.com
proxy : 10.128.1.69
Server : (leave whatever is default)
MMS proxy 10.128.1.69
MMS port 80
Authentication type None
APN type : (leave whatever is default)
Download and install autoproxy from the xda forums. Once installed many apps will now also work.

Set it up with the following:
host : 10.128.1.69
Apps that work 100% with autoproxy.
Browser including downloading files.
Apps that mostly work
Gmail - push notification doesn't work. you have to manually refresh to get new email
Google Voice - You can send free sms messages but push notification doesn't work and you have to manually refresh to receive. Voice calls over google voice still need to dial a US based number so they're not worth it anyway.
Apps that don't work and alternate options
Google Talk/chat - Won't even let you log in.
- One alternate is to use the browser to go to talkgadget.google.com. Gives you google chat in a webpage. works but it doesn't easily show who is online and who isn't.
- Another option is one of the many web based messenger applications that have android clients. eBuddy is a free one. As long as you stay logged into ebuddy you have a fully functioning google chat complete with system notifications on incoming messages.
That's all i have at the moment. I really wish the built in google talk application would work with system notification on new messages.

User monomono on page 5 has a couple of tips.
"I switched my APN to internet.com (from goam.com) and noticed slightly faster speeds, but no other differences"
"Push Gmail works if you set it up as Exchange in the standard "Email" map (use m.google.com for the server)."

User LanEvoVII pointed out something about a 2GB cap notice. I have no idea what this is but i assume people still up to date on speakout will be able to explain.
