    I forked out the $4.99/month to turn on unlimited T-zones to see if it's all working. And lo and behold, it is. Painfully slow (still waiting for my msn.com home page to appear after it went off to MS passport) but the fact it knew to connect to passport shows it did actually get the data from the page. Still, at well over a minute (so far) to load my home page, it's not too hot!

    I guess I'll do some experiments to see if the speed I get is actually sufficient for some of the uses I'm considering putting this to in my car computer.

    Here's the full list of what I did to get this installed:
    Got phone connected to PC by IR.
    Installed EasyGPRS and configured it to use the phone.
    Set proxy settings in IE for the EasyGPRS network connection as above.
    Set phone settings to the same IP (*#VSWAP# on my phone - they *may* now be back to the defaults but I can't find the document I stored the original settings in).

    Hmm, that msn.com home page still hasn't turned up. Maybe it's not working as well as I hoped. Ah no, I got www.microsoft.com to appear in parallel in a more sensible amount of time. So I guess it's just the my.msn.com home page is strange in some way (maybe just really complicated).

    It was working for me for most web pages once I signed up for the $4.99 deal. Haven't tried it since. Only the MSN page(s) wouldn't work.

    Good deal, $5 extra for unlimited Internet sounds great! I could use that in college for IM

    Well, once I signed up for 4.99 plan I got my phone to display any website I want.
    Not sure how this will show up on my bill, I hope it really is unlimited.
    I've been ICQing non-stop now and it's just really cool to access your mail and websites with the phone.
    Next step - get the phone to work with my laptop!

    Aparently you can't connect Nokia 3595 to a laptop for Internet even though I have a data cable.
    But this stuff is still great if just for unlimited WAP. I've been downloading **** non-stop now
