hey guys,
ive searched and searched every possible forum/search engine i can find regarding t-zones and the mpx200.
i am so struck.
earlier today i magically came across some registry hack for the proxy and threw it in, something to the effect of hkey_current_user\controlpanel and from there make a new value called "WAPProxy" with a value of your proxy title. after doing that, i could amazingly access internet sites and whatnot. i tried later and got the dreaded "unable to connect. verify you have network coverage and try again" message. ever since i got the phone, i have had a gprs signal indicator visible, so i know i'm picking up gprs. anyway, long story short, if i leave it plugged in to a computer via usb, i can go online. i ran ethereal to check packets and lo and behold, of course, its running through the computer's connection, not gprs.

what am i doing wrong? for the life of me i can't get this freakin' thing to go online, and t-mo support is useless since its "not a supported device."

i beg for your expert assistance!

thanks everyone :)

Have you had a look at the Settings Repository?

hey, thanks for the reply... unfortunately, i have been through the repository and tried the settings provided there... no dice :cry: i've noticed that those settings apparently assisted almost everyone ever and am wondering if its something with my phone. my t-zones still works on my crappy old sony-ericsson t300 if i switch sims out...

here's my settings if it's at all useful...

settings > data connections
internet/work/wap/secure wap connection all set "automatic"

dial-up connections is empty

vpn connections is empty

proxy connections:
t zones gprs
connects from - the internet
connects to - wap network
proxy - 216.155.165.50:8080
(also tried leaving the port off the tail end)
type - http
user name blank
password blank

gprs connections:
t zones gprs
connects to - the internet
access point- wap.voicestream.com
user name blank
password blank
primary and secondary dns - 0.0.0.0
ip address blank

pocket i.e.
options > connections
automatically detect settings checked AND unchecked, tried both
select network - wap network AND the internet, tried both
(tried all 4 variations)

HOLY NEW DEVELOPMENT BATMAN!
right now, this very second, it went from "connecting..." to "finding site" and said "the page you are looking for cannot be found."
hey, its progress to me :D
anyway, wtf is going on!? this thing is freaking me out!

thanks again :)
