    Anyone tried Unlimited T-Zones with T-Mobile pay-as-you-go?

    If I get a year card for T-Mobile prepaid, its only $100... so it nets out to about $8.30/month for 83 minutes of talk time each month, plus unlimited in-car internet.

    Now after the first year (or $100 in refills, whatever is soonest) you become a "gold rewards" member and all refill cards, including the lowest card ($10), lasts a whole year.

    Plus... T-Mobile says T-Zones is available with pay as you go plans right here: http://support.t-mobile.com/knowbase...ic/tm20530.htm

    So why not unlimited net?

    So should I be able to get the pay-as-you-go plan ($100 one for a year) and have unlimited internet access? Also what is a good phone to have? I currentyl have a local cellular service and don't want to get rid of them but would like internet access in the car. Which phone is best for bluetooth and regular USB? Thanks for the input.

    I am just hopping on the pay as you go bandwagon like everyone else. Im wondering if I understand this all right:

    I get a pay-as-you go sim card from ebay, and a phone for it like this one: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...785081966&rd=1

    Pop them together, add a data cable, set it up on the computer, and call the data phone number. Then proxy all http stuff over port 8080 to access the web.

    Questions are:
    1. Like everyone else im wondering if pay as you go includes unlimited internet under this configuration in wap or gprs or whatever
    2. Can I proxy other data then HTTP (like a SSH session) over that 8080 connection? Then I can just host a server on my home connection and route all the data through that.

    And what would be really neet to know... does this service have enough bandwidth to handle a shoutcast stream? Im sure it doesnt (my sprint internet connection cant do it) but I would really like to hear someone prove me wrong.

    Sorry for being a noob about this, but this thread is a confusing mess because of the length of time between the origional post and the present.

    THe answer to most of These questions are..."Yes" It still works on port 8080 as long as you have WAp Access. I have Tzone 4.99, and i can check my Yahoo mail, browse Wap.ebay.com and many other wap sites on my phone.....I have Ericsson t637...just like t610 or t630. Laptop internet works when i use it as Bluetooh Dun Modem connection. THE only Problem is that ....I can't access SSL sites. You can still browser the net for information purpose only....NO logging in or out to any website at all!!...

    Correct me if i'm wrong...and perhap provide info on accessing SSL sites will be usefull. thanks

    I want to know that same thing as purdoom.

    I know that T-Mobile To Go has free WAP access, but is the GPRS to use over modem connections free to use also?

    And I'll go one more up on that.

    Would I be able to get a GPRS modem, and put my T-mobile To Go sim card in it and get free gprs anywhere with T-mobile service?

    Peace,

    Raftser

    Can someone Please! try to answer these questions. Can you get free internet access over GPRS in Australia? This may have been answered before, I havnt read the WHOLE thread, but lots of it. It seems there are IP address that you can access which give you access....for a while and then they shut them down. I have a Nokia 6610 connected to my car pc with a IR connection, which works fine, but when it dials in ( using *99****? or whatever it is, the number that the B phone company gave me, it dials, then hangs up, with a networking error or something, like, the other end is hanging up.
    they gave me a whole heap of ther settings and ive tried and STILL no good.
    when it dials in, it gets as far as "negotiating with host" and then hangs up, and it says "subscribe to GPRS" first, but I am subscribed!!

    And, my other query, Does XP allow you to use two internet connections side by side? I have my wireless LAN card in the pc, in the car, talking to my network in the house, and then when i drive away, i want it to use my phone, without too much hassle. So far, i have seen a IP conflict come up once. Is this problem connecting to my mobile phone being blocked by the network?

    I can answer your second question. Yes, you will be able to use 2 internet connections, but it will only use one at a time. Usually, the higher speed or first connected one in my experience. When one goes out, it will probably take up to a minute or two before windows switched over to the cellular. It will NOT be seamless (internet will go out for a little bit) but it will transfer over.

    So no one else can add anything? Seems like this area of expertise is very thin !
    Wheres all the technicians who use this stuff!??
    im still having issues with mine, still cant actually connect. I have taken a step backwards, now my PC wont correctly negotiate a connection to the phone! *doh!*
    I recieved a whole heap of instructions from B mobile, and of course, some of them seem wrong. Alot of information from different sources conflicts. How is a guy suppost to get anything working?
