A prov file is a proxy configuration
file written in xml format which is an
extension of Nokia s40 phones proxy
settings. It contains the IP address (also called the proxy address),
proxy port number, the access point
name, username and password of the network operator. Some internet java applications never
seem to connect on certain Nokia S40
phones and this is where prov file/
proxy file comes in. It enables such
application to connect to the access
point. When a prov file is sent to a Nokia
s40 phone, it doesn’t get saved in the
file manager like other files such as
Music and videos.Instead, it
appears as a configuration settings the
way our local network providers settings would do if we request
provisional settings. For example,
when A Glo mobile Nigeria subscriber
sends ALL NOKIAC3 to 1234, GLO
will automatically send a prov file to
the phone making it appear like a configuration settings. When a prov is sent to an s40 phone,
It can only have its effect in the following areas:
settings>>default config settings and
prefered access point settings

For it to work perfectly with your phone, don’t
sent it with a usb cable or through
mms, you send it via OTA meaning over the air
connection e.g, infrared or bluetooth. When the prov file has been sent,
locate where it’ll have the effect as
was directed above, activate the new
settings, go back once and locate
Activate default in all apps. Select it
and head to prefered access point settings where you’ll choose the
appropriate access point for your
default settings.
