    Am trying to dial-up through infra-red on my P800 and fastest it connects at
    is 9.6K. Is this the maximum speed?
    Would I do better on bluetooth?

    In the UK the fastest data speed over a GSM network is 9.6K. This is called
    circuit switched data or "CSD" for short. Unless you're on Orange, which has
    a service called HSCSD (which stands for "High Speed Circuit Switched Data")
    which runs at 28K. You will need a HSCSD capable phone (which a p800 is) and
    phone Orange data support on 156 (free) to ask for HSCSD to be provisioned
    on your account. If you want faster data speeds on any other UK service
    provider (as well as Orange) you need to use GPRS, this offers speeds of up
    to 43K. Whether you connect to your laptop or pda through IR or BT will make
    no difference to your connection speed.

    Here's a long shot! :-)

    I have a Malaysian P802, and go to Singapore pretty often. Unfortunately
    there is no GPRS roaming agreement between Malaysia & Singapore, so I am
    stuck with GSM. Singapore offers an Internet connection method where you just
    dial *187 with a modem & the ISP charges go into your roaming phone bill. I
    rang the help line & asked them the maximum speed & the operator said
    "standard HSCSD". However, I can never get more than 9.6k out of the P800.

    I don't suppose anyone would know any secret to getting it would they?

    First off, you must have had HSCSD provisioned by your service provider and
    while I can't speak for the P800, but if it's the same as the T610 edit the
    "Data rate" setting of the data account that you're using to connect with to
    28,800. Thats if you are using the built in e-mail client. If you are
    connecting a laptop via the P800, you need to add one of the following to
    the laptops modem initalisation string;

    HSCSD
    for 9,600bps add at+chsn=1,1,0,4
    for 14,400bps add at+chsn=2,1,0,12
    for 19,200bps add at+chsn=3,2,0,12
    for 28,800bps add at+chsn=4,2,0,12

    You may find that the network you're using offers v110 connections, which
    offer much faster call setup, in which case use;

    V.110 HSCSD
    for 9,600bps add at+cbst=71,0,1;+chsn=1,1,0,4
    for 14,400bps add at+cbst=75,0,1;+chsn=2,1,0,12
    for 19,200bps add at+cbst=78,0,1;+chsn=3,2,0,12
    for 28,800bps add at+cbst=79,0,1;+chsn=4,2,0,12

    A bit of background, HSCSD works by stripping out some of the standard CSD
    error correction to give a data rate of 14.4K the network then aggregates 2
    data streams to give the 28.8K so you are effectively making 2 simultaneous
    data calls.

    that I can't be sure of, as I'm only roaming, and the operator didn't really
    know much - not even what HSCSD stood for.

    Yes, there is a data rate setting, and I've tried 28.8k - doesn't work. Pity.
    For such a wired country, Singapore makes it surprisingly difficult for
    tourists to get Internet access. My only choice is to wire up to a box in the
    hotel for S$36/day!
