I tried to set it up with my V600 T mobile, seems to log on great until
it ask for username and password. It fails, any ideas??
Well, I got t-zones (where I can download junk) but when I go to "open URL" instead of opening, say yahoo, it goes on tlling me how I should sign up for some crappy plan (unlimited tzones). WTF?
LOL, I was looking for info and accidentally stumbled on an interesting website.
Now my Nokia 3935 is unlocked :D
Oh well, at least my search wasn't a total failure.
well i think the party is officially over on this one. Tmobile has blocked port 80 in most areas now. That means you can no longer use your phone as a modem and get HTTP sites to work unless you subscribe to the 19.99 plan.
Hopefully someone finds a work-around..
Yeah, i just noticed this the past few days. I rarely use the Tzones on my phone (SE T610) for tzones or internet on the carpc, but... it is the MAIN reason i went with Tmobile. And im not about to fork over 20bucks extra a month for a slow *** internet conection that im only going to use every now and then to get weather udates in the car IM or maybe check movie times while im out and about.
This really sucks.
And the way TMOBILE has been treating me lately, they are trying real hard for me to leave them for Cingular.
If i cant get online for cheaper then what perk does TMOBILE have over anyone else, nothing! At least with Cingular you get rollover minutes so you dont get RAPED with extra charges.
well it seems that where there is a will there will allways be a way.
Someone has figured out a way around this.
Head over to http://www.howardforums.com/showthre...hreadid=518666
and get all the info
That thread is 8 pages long and seems like there isnt a solution inside but there is. To make things simple so you dont have to read the whole damn thread like I did. People found that if you set up a proxt on your PC you can connect (not really new) but... then someone found that TMO still had a port open that can be used for regular web browseing. To set this up on your PC
just go to Internet Options> BluetoothConnection(or whatever you used)>Settings> checkbox "Use a proxy sever for this connection address 18.104.22.168 and port 8080
Do the same for your PDA and you are golden once again. :p
Ive tested this and it works, if you have problems read the thread
whoo whoo! thats great news liquid. I hope it works for me too.
EDIT: Works for me too! Thanks liquid
Will this work if you have no additional plans? Just the very limited 'free' wap stuff? I.e. I'm not paying 2.99 or 4.99 or for any of the add-on T-zones plans.
Hmm, some progress. I got IE to download (but not display) a wap page that tells me I need to purchase the $4.99 unlimited T-Zones plan. That's way further than I've ever got before trying this...
A few more details for anyone interested. I'm using a Samsung S105 phone connected by IR to my laptop and (currently) GPRS wizard to make the connection (without this I never got *anywhere*).
