Proxy – Proxy is an optional field and states the HTTP proxy address, usually the field is left blank.

Port – Port is used in coordination with proxy else it is kept blank.

MMSC – MMSC is for the MMS messages that you receive and is set to MMSC address.

MMS Proxy and MMS Port – MMS Proxy and MMS Port are also meant for MMS messages.

MCC and MNC ­- MCC and MNC are also in coordination with each other. MCC stands for Mobile Country Code and MNC is Mobile Network Code. They are compulsory fields and every country has their own distinct code. For instance, USA has MCC between 310 and 316. The MNC also differs from region to region in the same country.
