How to Setup Nokia WiFi Proxy in Belle, Anna, Symbian

Alike all others phones, Nokia Belle, Anna and Symbian allows you to use Nokia WiFi Proxy settings. As you all know Nokia Belle introduced with lots of features, but setting up proxy remains same in Symbian, Anna and Belle. To setup proxy settings, all you have to do follow the below instructions carefully.

1. Firstly, open your Nokia Menu (we are using Nokia belle on N8 as example.)

Nokia Belle Home Screen

2. Then Tap on the Settings Icon.

3. In Settings Menu, click on Connectivity.

4. In Connectivity Menu, Tap on the Settings.

5. Then Tap on Network Destinations.

6. Then Click on Access Point to add New Access Point (New Wi-Fi Settings). If will automatically search the available Wi-Fi connections near to your Phone, once it shows the available connections, simply add it to Internet section.

7. Now, Tap on Internet (to see the access points you have created in the above step).

9. Then your Access Point settings will be opened. There simply Tap on the Right Button.

10. Then Tap on the Advanced Settings.

11. There, you can simply add Proxy Server address (we are using as example).

12. Then add Proxy Port Number (we are using 6588 as example).

You can use the above procedure in all Symbian version 3 and 5, Anna and Nokia Belle. You can use different proxy settings for every new Access Point you create.

  • If your phone is already having access points in the Internet column then also you can apply the proxy settings. For doing this you can follow the procedure from Step #7.
  • If you want to delete Access points from the Internet Section, then simply Tap on the Access Point Name, a Popup menu will appear with an option to Delete. Simply click on Delete option.

    Hi ,Thanks for the guide it was very helpful I just have one question,is there anyway to force apps (like whatsapp and skype,nokia store…) through the same proxy because I cant seem to get to work .Atm I can only browse the web through this access point.


    • Rajesh Patel says:

      @ Bashar, We are also using proxy on our Nokia N8. And We are able to use Skype and Nokia Store successfully. Send your Proxy with Port, so that We can check it why its not working properly.

      • Bashar says:

        Thanks for the replay 😀
        I am using my university proxy with the following address: port: 3128

        I also have to authenticate with my own username and password.

        • Bashar says:

          I think the problem is with proxys that require authentication ,might be wrong though.

          • Rajesh Patel says:

            Mainly Server Address comes in numerical form, but you are using “”. We think this is the reason that you are unable to use the Wi-Fi.

    • Rajesh Patel says:

      We think every thing was well explained above. Anyway, If you dont want to read the above steps the follow:

      Click on Menu > Settings > Connectivity > Settings > Network Destinations > Internet > Select Wi-Fi connection > Click on Options > Advanced Settings.
