Yeah nobody uses a proxy , but your phone services provider puts a proxy in the GPRS settings ....
It was in one topic here, I 'll have to search for it.
If you can surf on internet though.... Can you log in to Windows Live too?
Okay, I tried it with my WiFi network and it works. Guess it doesn't work when I connect to T-Mobile USA EDGE network. I can log into Windows Live through EDGE and WiFi, if that helps. BTW, if you want to know, here's my GPRS settings for my S710:
