    Has anyone successfully been able to connect a laptop via blootooth or
    infrared to their cell phone and access the Internet using Cingular
    Connection Manager? I do not have their data services package, I only
    have their Media Works package. I am not trying to use it to dial to
    my ISP. I would like to use it to access the Internet via the Cingular
    network. I believe this is possible but I'm not sure if I bought the
    right package. The error I am receiving is "Error 734: The PPP link
    control protocol was terminated." Nobody at Cingular knows anything
    about this stuff. Everyone has a different answer.

    Thanks!

    I'm using the Nokia 6230b - not the one from Cingular. I bought this
    online, unlocked.

    Thanks,
    Ahmet

    Yes.

    >using Cingular
    >Connection Manager?


    I don't just it because it isn't needed -- all that's needed is Windows DUN
    (Dial-Up Networking). See my web pages below.

    Likewise (currently).

    It is possible and you do have the right package *if* your phone supports GPRS
    and you're in a GPRS coverage area. MEdia packages don't include CSD, only
    GPRS.

    See my web pages below for GPRS settings.

    According to your website, in order to works, we must have ISP.Cingular
    added in the account. The Media Works does not include ISP.Cingular , I
    called many times, Cingular guys just could not find it in their computer
    under the Media Work package.

    Yes -- it works -- and the 734 means your phone is not setup for WIX --- ask for "Media Works WIX" to be placed on your phone --

    or it may be some other feature -- let us know what you find out

    You do not need ISP.CINGULAR with MEdia Works (not specifically covered on my
    website), which uses the WAP settings.
