    it shows you how to access wap sites from alternate gateways, and it also tells you that you can still tether your laptop/carputer to your phone for internet access
    Seems to be, I changed the WAP to the IP address suggested & I still get a T-Mobile page saying I have to pay $5 a month. Ah well

    so is there anyway to get this set up with the pay as you go plan anymore? I'd pay the $5 bucks a month happily, but their cheapest plans are a bit more than I am willing to pay right now.

    wireless world 56k modem !

    i checked into it, just not sure if teirs enough use to make it reasonable... If you have T-mobile its 19.99/mth by it self 29.99/mth. what you get 24hrs a day unlimited 56K wireless modem that uses the t-mobile network, no raoming either.

    you must get the pcmcia pc card unit for this (ebay 99.00), t-mobile (300.00).

    I have a friend with t-mobile, thinking about giving him 240.00 up front (close friend) and let him sign up for it for me... (most people wont do a 1 yr contract for others, but if i pay for year up front i dont see why not.)

    so far it seems like a good plan, but i need more uses then email, web searching to do this... I have nextel now with unlimited web, 19k though, but good enough for email.

    I found some other information while speaking to tech support the other day -
    T-mobile offers 2 types of access - Internet 1 and Internet 2.

    Internet one is the Basic plan, and prvides only a NAT'ed Internal IP.
    Internet two Is the extended service and offers a publically routable IP - Will support VPN connectivity.

    I also have some other dialing codes that work better for some phones.

    I use (and pay) for the Internet 2 option, and use it quite frequently in my car. I have a Sony Ericsson t610 connected through bluetooth to my car pc.

    Seems like the party is in fact NOT over! Just tried it on my laptop and it works great! I guess it only doesn't work when using tzones directly from your phone. I thought all hope was lost, but I guess its working for now at least.

    i guess i found out why the mobile internet doesn't work... this phone doesn't support it.... now to find another one, my GF has been eyeing this 3595 anyway i guess she now has a new phone.

    Apparently the number for a cable connected phone for GPRS is *99#

    if you have a buddy with a laptop it would be a matter of minutes before you found out if it worked or not, no data cable neccessary

    i finally got this GPRS to work and damn i love it i ended up getting a cheap motorola V66 and a data cable for $20 and it works like a charm, in fact i'm on it right now, the speed is tolerable especially for being connected just about anywhere. Finally T-mobile is worth it!
