Speakout Wireless Data Plan on Android

98 comments

Speakout Wireless from 7/11 is single handedly the best value phone plan in Canada for light users and now they also support data plans! I’m currently paying $13.25/month

  • Unlimited Data: $10/month
  • 911 fees: $1.25/month
  • Caller ID: free!
  • Voicemail: free!
  • Incoming texts: free!
  • Outgoing texts: 10cents/txt
  • Local calling: 25cents/min
  • Long distance: 45cents/min

The setup is a little trickier then the major carriers so here’s a quick step by step guide for anyone wanting to switch to Speakout.

Requirements

A rooted Android phone running at least Android 2.2. The Android image needs to have been compiled with iptables support (most custom roms).

Speakout Configuration

  1. Speakout Wireless SIM cards can be bought from any 7/11 for $10, pick one up as well as a prepaid card ($25 is the lowest amount you can buy).

  2. Pop in the SIM card, start your phone and dial *#06#. As soon as you type the last # a screen will pop up listing your IMEI number for your phone. Write it down.

  3. Head over to the SIM card activation page and enter the required information: the activation code on your SIM card packaging and the IMEI number of your phone.

  4. Your phone should be automatically assigned its new phone number and be ready to go, although you may need to wait a few minutes and then restart your phone for your phone to pick up on the change.

  5. Create a new Speakout account and then add your new phone number to your account.

  6. Now you can go back to the account page and at the bottom of the page you’ll see a list of available addons. Select the $10 – Unlimited Browsing addon to activate your a data plan.

Phone Configuration

  1. On your Android phone head over Settings > Wireless and Networks > Mobile Networks > Access Point Names.

  2. Delete any existing APN’s.

  3. Add a new APN with the following settings:

    • Name: Speakout
    • APN: goam.com
    • Proxy: 10.128.1.69
    • Port: 80
    • Username: wapuser1
    • Password: wap
    • Server:
    • MMSC: http://mms.gprs.rogers.com
    • MMS Proxy: 10.128.1.169
    • MMS Port: 80
    • MCC: 302
    • MNC: 720
    • Authentication Type:
    • APN type: default,supl,mms
    • APN Protocol: IPv4
  4. Now you should see your phone get a data connection and be able to browse the web on your 3G connection. :) Apps aren’t working yet unfortunately, we’re getting to it.

  5. Download the latest copy of AutoProxy and install it on your phone.

    Scanning this barcode using your phone should automatically download and install the latest version at the time of writing (V0.25).

  6. Turn off wireless if you have it on (AutoProxy configures whatever connection is currently active). Then start AutoProxy and add a new proxy with the following settings:

    • Proxy Host: 10.128.1.69
    • Proxy Port: 80
    • Proxy Type: http
  7. Save the configuration and then long press on your new configuration > Connect to this Proxy.

  8. You’re all set. $10 unlimited browsing on your Android phone!

Questions

What was all that proxy stuff?

Speakout uses a proxy to access the internet which only allows connections through port 80 (the default HTTP port). This allows the web browser to work but any secure HTTPS pages or apps aren’t able to get a connection since they go through different ports. AutoProxy modifies files in the underlying Linux system Android runs on to trick all your apps into sending data over port 80 instead of the port they’re configured to use allowing all your apps to work even with the proxy restrictions.

Really? Unlimited?

No probably not, but unlimited within what would fall under fair usage. Don’t do things like tethering and downloading 50GB’s of movies and you should be ok. I’ll update later if they ever contact me about my data usage.

Any issues?

Well other then needing to configure a proxy to get full usage of your apps Rogers also blocks Speakout from using the port that Google does its push notifications through. Basically while on 3G you won’t get instant notification when you get an email and instead will get them when the phone does its usual syncing phase or when you manually sync. This could also affect Google Talk (unsure, I don’t use it) but other chat and email apps will still work correctly.

I am considering buying a Nexus S phone to use on 7 eleven Speakout. My reason for buying would be to use tethering and to access a secure network over VPN for work using this Android phone. Does anyone have any experience of VPN tethering for this service?

Reply

Zander Kidd October 6, 2011 at 1:52 PM

I wouldn’t recommend it as tethering does break their TOS and you risk them cancelling your account, though I’m unsure how strictly they enforce that policy.

But there should be nothing technologically stopping you, I tested tethering quickly with no issues. I’d guess that for VPN you might need a program to enable VPN tunnelling through an HTTP proxy.

If anything it’s $35 to test it out for two months and experiment, or asking on the unofficial forum might find you someone who can confirm if it works.

VPN is not going to work on a tethered proxyed account. When you tether a port80 data plan you will only get port80 on the computer you tether it to even if you are using a proxy server on the phone. Of course you will need to setup the computer to access the data via 10.128.1.69:80 .

Hi Zander Kidd
Thanks for your effort in trying to explain things to us luddites.
I can now browse on Speakout!
Unfortunately, that’s all I can do. My stuff that worked on Fido, such as gmail, google maps, goggle calendar, google contacts, gas buddy, CBC news etc. can’t download from the server. Also, downloading to the browser (which works) is slower than in Fido.
I looked at AutoProxy but I have no idea how to ‘grab’ it and ‘install it’ on my LG Android phone; could you please go into a little more detail here?
Cheers
Tom

Zander Kidd October 6, 2011 at 9:18 PM

Ah sorry about that, I forget installing apps from outside of the Market can be tricky.

The app isn’t available in the Android Market so you have to download it using your Android web browser by going to the following URL on your phone:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=613206&d=1306940881
or I added a barcode at that step in the post above that you can scan to download the app.

After its downloaded it’ll hopefully install itself when you select the ‘download complete’ notification from the notification bar.

If not you’ll need to tell Android to let you install apps that aren’t from the Market by going to:
Settings > Applications > Allow Unknown Sources

And then download a file manager app if you don’t have one and use it to browse to the AutoProxy.apk file that you downloaded and run it which will then finally install the app.

Just go where there is Wifi and install iptables, remember your phone will need to be rooted, in most cases iptables will install with out ROMing the phone. After you install AutoProxy. (ProxyDroid works well and is free and you can set it up for auto connect to 2g/3g, AutoProxy is $2.99 and AutoProxy Lite doesn’t have the auto connect so you will have to stop it when you use wifi and restart it when you are back on 3g) and iptables and you setup AutoProxy you can access the market.

tsuda October 7, 2011 at 10:12 AM

I had this setup working on Petro Canada Mobile before reading this article, but thanks for this great article!

With Autoproxy, I found the following apps work well: Gmail, Maps, Market, Skype (has a bit of echo, but works!!!)

Apps that don’t work: Voip SIP apps, stock Email app (seems port 994 and 465 are blocked)

Again, thanks for the nice article! This a great way to get unlimited browsing and more!

Do you have any phone suggestions? Is it best to buy used if you want a decent but cheap smart phone? This is a great plan, but I’d want it on a good smart phone as I use smart phones mostly for browsing. Currently all I have is an itouch.

I am going to let you know how far I can abuse this data plan. I have got my media pc that I have attached to my hdtv usb tethered through my old android phone. I plan on running as much data heavy services as possible. Netflix, Justin Tv, downloading all my movies from quicksilverscreen. I do on average 500 gb of data permonth on my regular household internet so I am hoping to push 100gb through my speakout plan this month. Will post with updates.

So what happened? Are you still alive?!?!? Did speakout did a hit on you after you did 500gb on your 10$ plan?

Reply

chuck norris February 2, 2012 at 7:29 PM

No nothing happened to me I am still alive.

I used it for a while with no errors. I beleive around dec 13 maybe earlier all data was working on speakout but as of feb 1st they changed the data back to the browser only.

I used a 3g watchdog and averaged about 10gb a week of use through it and no penaltys warnings or disconnection for violation of terms.

I also found that for wifi hotspot tethering I could turn it on use it once and no problems. If I tried to use it again it was blocked. A simple solution was to put the phone into airplane mode than reconnect back to the network and would be able to use my wifi hotspot again.

Who knows maybe I am the reason why the data was switched back to browser/http only.

It sure was a fun ride though.

I say make it public and lets start a riot for data. Let the whole place burn.

I use a lot of data. I stopped with the tethering for my household as it just was not practical for gaming. I still stream a lot of video through netflix and crackle on my smartphone and tab without even having to worry if I am on my wifi or not. I am averaging 1gb a week if i am not caught up in a television series on netflix but if I get caught up in a series and watch it through all my downtime at work I will run up 5gb in a week.

Used those exact settings on my HTC hero running Floyo 1.2 Custom rom android 2.2.1 kernel 2.6.29.6, though as peter mentioned above, my APN settings do not have “APN Protocol” and also cannot get any connection through apps or browser. Another question, Should “Data Enabled” be on or off? I would think on but I’ve tried both to no avail.

OMG while toying with the just now phone, I turned on “Enable 2G only” option, which disconnected me from the network entirely, So I tuned it back off. And Low and behold now my browser is working. Not sure what I triggered but its now working, maybe try this peter.

check to make sure web browsing is setup on your SOut account right. Check your APN settings that they are right, if wrong change, if all right, delete that APN, and make a new one. Try restarting the phone. If that all fails get on IRC and connect to freenode and go to the #android-root channel and someone will help you there. its about the most active android channel I know with people that can help you with this kind of stuff.

you need to setup iptables and the proxy server right. Then test connecting to Google Play. If you can connect to Google Play then you are connecting to more than just port80. Then test and make sure your Skype client is working on your desktop. If your phone Skype is still not working delete it and reinstall.

An update to above.

First my sincere thanks to Zander Kidd without whose help I wouldn’t have been able to get my browsing etc to work on my Samsung Gio. Hats off to you, Zander.

I had bought a Samsung Gio without the knowledge that I may run in to difficulty running the browsing plan with SpeakOut (SO). Today, April 15, I activated the browsing plan and ran in to difficulties right away. After a lot of googling I came across Zander’s article and then everything turned from gloom to joy – within 15 minutes I was in business.
My update. AutoProxy is now available on Android Market but for a price though humble at $1.99. But it wasn’t the price; instead the rave reviews of 4.5/5 on ProxyDroid that caught my attention. I therefore installed ProxyDroid and it worked seamlessly well. I used the same three setting as advised by Zander for AutoProxy except that I also enabled the “Proxy Switch” – the very first on the menu. I also left all other menu options “as is”.

For now my browsing, Gmail, Google Calendar, Maps, The Weather Network, YouTube are all working like a charm. The SIP client applications however are not as also a few others but I guess we’ll catch up as we move forward. And did I mention what a lovely toy is Samsung Gio.

Well, I’ve got the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7″ (originally from and locked to Rogers still) and have it running now on the $10 Speakout “Unlimited Browsing” package. The browser worked well as I could pretty much go anywhere on the web save for the IP Cameras that I needed to keep an eye on.

I’ve now used z4root to root the Tab (running Froyo 2.2 still, worked great!) and then installed and ran “AutoProxy Lite” from the Play store. You have to manually connect and it’s ad supported, but, it works! I can view the cameras when I need too and get my email alerts now!

Now I am thinking of upgrading to the stock European version of the 2.3.3 Gingerbread for some additional performance ….

Thanks!

Hi,
I did APN setup and downloaded proxy. Everything works fine but MMS. I can receive MMS but can open them.
In APN setting:
Is the MMS Proxy: 10.128.1.169
or is it MMS Proxy: 10.128.1.69
Anyway I tried both but it still does not work.

Do I need to have AutoProxy active in order to download MMS?
Do I need to have two proxy hosts, one for e-mail and the other for MMS and switch between the two depending of what I am trying to do MMS or e-mail?
Or I am on the wrong path completely?

Hi there.

I did all of this on my Samsung Infuse 4G and everything works great.

I have one issue though.

When I’m at home, I use my wifi network. As soon as I am out of my wifi range, the AutoProxy kicks in and everything works on the Speakout plan.

Now where my problem lies is when I get back home. My phone recognizes my wifi network and connects to it fine, but none of the apps on the phone that require data will work, it tells me there is no connection when clearly I’m connected to my wifi.

So in order for my wifi to work, I have to restart my phone by turning off and on everytime. When it comes back on it connects to my wifi first and is fine.

Do you know if there is a way to fix this so I don’t have to keep restarting my phone whenever I want to connect to a wifi network?

Thank You Zander Kidd, your instructions worked great are are very clearly laid out. I only did as far as step 3, adding the new APN settings. At that point, I had most of what I needed working in terms of web based apps. As of Nov 30, 2012, web browsing, gmail, Avocado (messaging for couples), google maps, and google Navigation work. I haven’t rooted a phone yet but I may not need to for the added functionality. This gets me 90% of the way and there are getting to be enough free wifi spots out there to do the rest.

Another poster pointed out the “169″ in the line, that may need to be “69″?
MMS Proxy: 10.128.1.169 <— I left it at "69" in my settings.

Thanks a mililon for your efforts!!

Thanks Zander Kidd:
Following your Speakout set-up I just got my SG2 internet access going once again. For a whole month I had no internet access and I was totally baffled because prior to resetting my phone it was working just fine.

I reset it in the hope of using my SG2 without Google, and still plan on trying. If you have an opinion on this or any tech feedback on it I’d would deeply appreciate it. But I digress.

Set-up information I had from Fall 2011 had an APN Type which proved to be the problem. I inserted your information i.e.
APN type: default,supl,mms – and voila I was in business once again :-)

Thanks ever so much for your EXCELLENT and thorough step-by-step instructions. To give you some idea of what I have gone through over the past month trying to get my internet working – I have spent about 25-30 hours trying to sort it out. Your information did it in less than 5-minutes.

I tip my hat to you Zander Kidd,

Thank you and take care,

Biraj

Just configured my direct from China 6″ screen mini smart pad Android phone using your speakout settings. It workes perfect! Data, cellular and everything. I tried the settings on Rogers and the Speakout web sites but they didn’t work for this pad and I was a little worried.

Thanks

Thank you so much, I did setup step by step in your article, it works with my samsung galaxy S3! Now my web, gmail, google map, google play works. Youtube doesn’t work by App but work when througth web browser. I used regular mail to set gmail by selecting ‘ manual setup’->’Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync’, thus the gmail push works very well. Thank you all here for sharing your valuable experience.

You should probably update your website as it still is incorrect. Speakout has never supported a data plan. They have an unlimited internet plan, which is not the same thing as data, in fact it is a long way from a data plan, you may wish to clarify that.

I was going to buy a SIM card from the 7-11 store and cut it to fit the micro SIM card slot of my NEXUS 7 Tablet with Mobile. Will this instruction for unlimited browsing work for the Anroid 4.2 tablet? Please advise!

Thanks for the information. Everything went as you explained but when I try to run applications I got this messege:
failed to start proxy.sh(l;permission denied 136016394.494650 redsocks.c:699 redsock_init_Instance(…) bind:Adress already in use.

Please any solution.

I was also getting “missing su binary on ROM” but I rooted my phone (I think so since I followed a youtube video) and I am not getting this messege anymore. and I gave the autoproxy super user.

My knowledge in smart phone is zero so please make it simple for me

Many thanks again

Would the Speakout data plan work on blackberry Z10?

I have an unlimited data plan from Petro-Canada for an extra 8$ with the monthly plan. I want to know if it’s possible to tether the data plan on my laptop and to play after online games such as mw3 or black ops. The problem is that the unlimited data plan is only for web browsing. And also can someone let me know what will happen if I exceed the 2 gb limit for the month. Thank you !

Ya but here is the ultimate question guys…..who has managed to get this working flawlessly with dellvoice, fongo, freefone??

If I could get this to work on Fongo than I see it to be a viable reason to forgo the old cell companies.

Can someone please download the fongo app either on Iphone or Android and report back their results please?

Thanks so much everyone

Hi, I managed to get the plan to configure properly, but I’m having issues with the data. My old internet plan worked fine with my data, but it is just so much slower now. Does this have anything to do with where I live?

Thanks for posting this Zander! I just used your 2 year old post and it worked flawlessly.

Note to those who are newbies like me (and used to macs) you CAN do this, but read ALL the directions. Be careful cutting your sim, you need to make sure it is NOT centered. Luckily Speakout is giving them away free right now!

Thanks so much for the post!
I need some more help though, please.
I got the browser working, but not the apps.

When I try to connect via Autoproxy, the following error message shows up: “Failed to start proxy.sh (link_image[1995]: failed to link/ data/data/com.mgranja.autoproxy_lite/files/redsocks CANNOT LINK EXECUTABLE )”

Anyone know what the problem is?
I’m trying to set it up for my Samsung Galaxy Q, running on Android 2.2.2

Thanks!

I just got the glorous 100MB new data feature. It is not restricted to web browsing only, everythig on android works with the following settings (got them from CSR)
For android, go to the APN settings, on 4.4 it is under Settings> More… >Mobile Networks > Access Point Names.

Add/modify an APN with the following settings:
APN: rogers-core-appl1.apn
Proxy: None
Port: None
USername: Not set
PAssword: not set
server: not set

The APN value should replace goam.com APN that we were using for Unlimited Browsing.

Now using Nexus 5 with 100MB data feature. Had to buy a new micro-sim card from Speakout. Thanks to Nigel’s info and Shadowncs update all works well. Just 3G but works well.
