    Hi Guys

    Could I ask anybody using Orange GPRS on PAYG confirm if you must use
    the PAYG APN of "payginternet" or can you also use the contract APN of
    "Orangeinternet" ?

    Does it actually matter which you use ?

    Any help much appreciated.

    I have always used Orangeinternet without issue.

    I didn't even know about payginternet.

    On PAYG ?

    The "payginternet" APN is listed on quite a few sites and previous
    usenet posts for PAYG access whereas "orangeinternet" is listed for
    Contract/PM.

    I use the latter with no trouble on my PM account and have
    just tried "payginternet" but got a "Subscribe to GPRS first"
    on the N6230 I was using.

    Many thanks

    Yes, I have used orangeinternet on PAYG too without difficulty.
    payginternet works as well.

    It used to be the case that PAYG users had to use "paygwap" and
    "payginternet", but they can now use "orangeinternet" and "orangewap" now
    too.

    Between PAYG and contract, "orangeinternet" and "orangewap" both behave
    differently. In my experience, the contract and PAYG connections get
    assigned IPs in different address ranges, and the PAYG sessions get
    dropped after an hour of use, whereas on contract the session keeps going
    until you disconnect or lose the signal.

    hours.
