Steps for Android 1.5

Following content is referenced from

In the earlier versions of Android emulators (up to version 1.1r2), you were required to make an entry in the system table of“” database and/or start the emulator with –http-proxy switch supplying it the IP address and port number of your proxy.

These methods however, have become obsolete and don’t work with SDKv1.5.
Step 1: On emulator, go to:
Home->Menu->Settings->WirelessControls->MobileNetworks->Access Point Names->T-mobile US->set Proxy IP and Port#

Step 2: Now the next time you go to a web address, the browser will prompt for your user-id and password. Enter your credentials and you should be good to go.
