3 / Three Mobile Phone Settings

I might be changing my mobile phone shortly, so took a moment to note down the 3 / Three mobile phone settings, just in case I need them at some stage. I thought I would share the details here, in case anyone else also requires the data, email, mms, voicemail etc settings. These settings were noted down in 2012.
