How to Set Up DNS on Windows Phone 8

If you are using Windows Phone 8.1 and above then you should have the option to edit the DNS servers used by the phone. We have put should in italics as this feature is still broken on lots and lots of Windows phones. Never the less here goes:

Go to settings
Choose Wifi
Press and hold the Wifi you are connected to
Select Edit from the pop up
If the fields are greyed out then you have the bug as many other Windows Phone users and you won't be able to edit the DNS. Instead setup your router.
If you can enter values in the fields then set DNS to and press done.
You might need to restart the phone.

Important: We won't be able to help you with getting your phone to accept DNS changes if the fields are greyed out. This is a Windows bug.
