EDIT: I should have been more clear. Use MobileWEB4U to find out how to access the appropriate menu on your phone where you change servers. Once you find the menu, enter a proxy server. You can find one at http://www.publicproxyservers.com.

You must also enter both the proxy server address as well as the port it uses. If you don’t have both, it won’t work.
