    Can you go to http://www.dslreports.com/mspeed and see what speed connection you get and what latency? I'd love to know why you have success and I don't. I'd love to be able to get it working.

    Okidoki, so I ran 5 trials and here are the results i got:

    36 kbit/sec (50k)
    36 kbit/sec (100k)
    39 kbit/sec (100k)
    41 kbit/sec (100k)
    28 kbit/sec (200k)

    respectively, i got the following latency results:
    1.336s
    1.421s
    1.429s
    1.320s
    1.504s

    My phone is an SE K700i and I'm in a big convention hall in mandalay bay as I type this on my laptop. Various file sizes were used.

    Oh yeah, see above edit re: PC as bluetooth headset if ya missed it.

    Looks like you get about the same speed but half the latency I do. That may be why Outlook never quite gets properly connected. sigh.

    what's cool about rpc over http is that i have the option to detect connection speed and react accordingly (download full e-mails vs. download headers only). You might wanna see if that works for you; the option is under account setup.

    Even when i don't have that option applied though, e-mail still works nonetheless. So, I'm not certain if it'll help resolve your situation.

    hrm... weird... you're right, sounds like a latency issue.

    Wonder what's causing that, bad area or reception?

    Mines a T610 and I just have it dial the phone ( *99***3# ) which connects to the internet.
    I set " Internet Preferences " on the computer ( both IE & Firefox linked ) to use a proxy server with IP & Port 8080

    simple, no other software needed
    Don,
    I assume your talking about using DUN to dial up the GPRS correct? I should be able just dial *99***3# from the phone and here the modem handshaking correct? If so there is a problem because the phone just sends back "command error". Are the any specific settings that I need put in the phone?

    I tried that. No joy. Do you have a simple folder layout? I have words of sub folders I sort mail into. It seems like Outlook never finishes the initial 'work out what to sync step.

    I don't think it's reception. Probably just a bad area.
