Overview: SetDNS is the easiest way to force your rooted phone to use custom nameservers on WiFi AND 3G/mobile networks.
If you have any problems with this - please email me (see the About option) before rating on the market. Most problems are due to cached DNS or network proxies rather than the app itself.
In particular, testing against sites such as opendns will fail if going through a mobile carrier's proxy.
Preserves your custom nameserver information when using both wireless and 3g/edge mobile connection.
Comes with google, opendns, opendns family shield, fooldns settings, enter custom DNS servers and option to revert back to DHCP.
Includes widgets that will show the current DNS state and if you have DNS Pro installed, will allow nameserver changes by clicking the appropriate widget.
This app doesn't change *any* system files (unlike some DNS apps), so you don't need to back up your nameserver details. Just reverting back to DHCP will go back to your normal network settings.
OpenDNS Family Shield settings can be used to filter adult or inappropriate content on the phone.
Using alternative nameservers like Google DNS or OpenDNS can dramatically speed up your browsing. You can also bypass local DNS filters such as Nawala.
If you find this app useful, please consider buying the Set DNS Pro app which activates locking and control widgets. In the future this will unlock additional features in the Set DNS app
Please note, entering the wrong nameserver details can break your internet settings.
Also, some mobile operators run web access via a proxy server, in which case the nameservers on the phone can be less relevant.
