DNS 1:  <-- specific to the east coast, if it doesnt work try leaving it blanks
DNS 2:  (see note above for DNS 1)


I discovered while travelling from Boston to Philadelphia, that if the DNS settings are configured as above, I can not connect my laptop using DUN. I craps out with a PPP protocol error.

However, if I change the DNS settings to both be it will register and work properly. The actualy phone GPRS part didn't seem to be affected (the phone could still get eMail, etc.) but connecting a laptop over bluetooth using GPRS was.

Hope it helps someone else out there. T-Mobile of course was clueless when I called them to ask why it was doing this. Ah well.

Was a silent lurker but did want to thank you as i have the device now working as a modem. If i may, a brief amendment to your suggestion. What worked for me is not your suggestion but:

This can be seen at http://www.ppcw.net/...id=1369&catid=4

My humble apologies of the 'bad netticate' for linking to another website. i did not write the above article, have no relation/financial/etc to it.

Basically, used YOUR settings for username and password BUT used AT+cgdcont=1,"IP","WAP.CINGULAR","",0,0    .  Also, there was no need to make ANY changes to the MPx220 config on the Cingular phone itself (with newest firmware). The phone itself was already configured properly. All i needed to do was enable the Modem Link on the phone and then plug in the Data Cable to my computer that already had the proper MPx220 modem driver as supplied from the Motorola website at http://www.motorola....h/default.shtml

Hope this all makes sense, just trying to help.

Enjoy the Music,

Veeeery helpful post. Wasted seeeeveral hours trying to get my Cingluar 2125 to work with their Communication Manager app but it never seems to see the Phone. In less than 5 minues I was able to connect using the posted configuration and Surf the Web.

Does anyone know if there is any value in this app? It does mention Acceleration.


OMG FINALLY!!!! IT WORKED!!! wow FINALLY i was on a binge for like 2 days figuring this out.. heres what I did
Installed Motorola USB driver (*supplied on cd, or website here HERE )
created a Dial up connection through windows (XP sp2)
phone number = *99#
username: [email protected]
password: CINGULAR1
Next go to Control Panel>
Phone and Modems>
click on Motorola USB ... >
Properties > Advanced tab >
type +CGDCONT=1,"IP","apn_name" (*Replacing apn_name with your APN like WAP.CINGULAR <<NOTICE THE UPPERCASE!)
DONE try to connect.. worked for me! (mpx220 cingular CA w/laptop XP sp2)

You dont need to set any of this if your GPRS already works on your phone. This is only reference for those who forget settings or have phones setup w/different carriers than provider currently on phone.
