    I am using a Nokia 6620 via USB data cable to a Toshiba WINXP ProSP2
    laptop.

    I have found all of the related information online to connect to
    Cingulars' GPRS service. I am using windows DUN... I get as far as
    "Registering Your COmputer On The Network" and then it just freezes
    (the little connection box that is)...

    I've called cnglr to ask if they're having issues, they say that one
    of their systems is having problems.. then one lady transferred me to
    tech support - where a guy told me that they indeed are having issues,
    but i told him the entire problem, he looked at my account info and
    said because I only have media works (19.99) enabled it is not
    allowing me laptop data access. I think he is blowing smoke up my you
    know what.. is he serious or was he just trying to be by the book and
    get me to purchase a nice 79.99 data plan?

    Or is this problem really just on cingulars' end and not mine?

    It is NOT because you have the 19.99 plan, I have it
    and it works just fine. I use mobile phone tools with my
    Motorola phone, Mr.Navas will tell you that you only need
    windows DUN, but I could not get it to work for me. You may
    want to check Howard forums for your phone model, and see if
    there is a third party utility for your phone.

    I was having the same problem. I called support and was told the same
    thing.

    Re: GPRS Laptop Connection Problems.

    How did you resolve the problem? because it seems nothing will work,
    I've gone to John's site and changed my access points to isp.cingular
    from wap.cingular.. I've tried all the different login's from the
    cingular alliance developer forum pdf information file...

    It simply does not want to take me beyond registering computer on the
    network.. I'm hoping this is just a problem on their end as they
    claimed to me last night it was.

    The Cingular developer stuff is not reliable at this point. The
    wap.cingular APN has been working. The big problem is ensuring the
    script is just right... many references seem to drop a <CR> or
    something.

    On WinXP I found this works: use the Bluetooth manager (WIDCOMM, not
    WinXP native) to detect the phone's DUN capability, then configure a
    connection using the Bluetooth Modem (even though Nokia shows the
    phone as an option). The phone number to dial is *99#. In the control
    panel, phone and modems, edit the Bluetooth Modem properties, advanced
    tab, and enter

    AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP","WAP.CINGULAR","0.0.0.0",0,0<cr>

    Some reference scripts skip some of the quotations, but I'm not sure
    it matters.

    To use the connection, go to the My Bluetooth Places icon, find your
    phone, discover its services, then CONNECT to the DUN. Don't go in
    through the DUN menus directly.

    Good luck.

    tg.

    That's almost certainly a problem in your computer.

    He's blowing smoke.

    No, no, no! My webpage says to use "wap.cingular" for MEdia
    <http://navasgrp.home.att.net/tech/cingular/media.htm>.

    >I've tried all the different login's from the

    Those *don't* work for MEdia!

    If your phone will connect to MEdia, then your computer should be able to as
    well.

    No scripting is needed (if the phone and computer are configured properly)!
    See my webpage at <http://navasgrp.home.att.net/tech/cingular/media.htm>.

    Re: GPRS Laptop Connection Problems.

    Ahhhh!!! I was not using the [email protected] login - the cingular
    alliance developer portal PDF document I was going by only had me use
    either [email protected] OR [email protected]...

    that might just be it! and might be why I couldn't get past
    "Registering your computer on the network"

    Thanks John.

    Ok, well - I tried again using the [email protected] login - and it's worked great!
    - but now I am just paranoid hehe - when my bill comes and if there's
    data charges, what will I say when I Call them? that this is wrong
    because I AM on an unlimited data plan, I mean.. I'm sure they won't
    get into specifics and look at the data and realize it's not typical
    cellphone protocals and ports being used, but in which case, I'll tell
    them I have a pda 6620 nokia and I use different chat and file transfer
    programs on it..

    This would be the things I'd want to tell them yes? (paranoia sucks )

    I got two bills with big data charges because MEdia Works hadn't been properly
    added to my account. Customer Care credited back all those charges, and made
    sure my account is now configured properly.
