I could be wrong but I don't think you can change them on a mobile phone, I would have thought these type of setting were set and controlled by the network/carrier.

If you're having trouble with your mobile internet, I would contact your network and check you APN settings with them

You can do it, but with advanced options, however from 4.1 this only applies when you connect for the first time (sort of makes sense I suppose).

So forget you connection (assuming you know the password to get back on), press the network you want to use, which will bring up the password box for it, plus an advanced options box - tick that.
By setting proxy to manual you should be able to change your DNS settings or by setting IP Settings to Static. First try the static setting prior to changing DNS.

learnt that one with the HTC phones - was a major issue with getting some of them to connect to wifi boxes, and often just changing that setting, which you used to be able to get to via the advanced menu, would often resolve the issue.

Delete your current connection and then set up a new connection, and when setting up the new connection make these changes.
