After several attemps to make it work, my Nokia 5140 just doesn't want to connect with the Z trough the internet. First I got the message "Subscribe to GPRS first" and after playing around a lot I eneded putting the wrong command in the console:

echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/irda/max_tx_window
echo 1000 > /proc/sys/net/irda/min_tx_turn_time

Now it doesn't even show the "G" of gprs connection... it dials directly the number! sad.gif
The screen now shows "Dialing *99***#1" unsure.gif

How can I deactivate this pair of commands?
Any idea what is wrong? Anyone getting the same messsage?

Thanks in advance

You don't mention which service provider you're using. My original phone provider only provided WAP access over GPRS. I got the "Subscribe to GPRS first" error message from them. Then I got a Vodafone Pay as you go SIM for web access and got the "Subscribe to GPRS first" untill the SIM was properly registered, which took about 48 hours.

This was in the UK so YMMV.

Thank you for yor reply, the point is my cellphone doesn't even want to start a proper GPRS connection. It tries to make a data call instead of a GPRS connection and the reason is I used these commands in cacko:

echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/irda/max_tx_window
echo 1000 > /proc/sys/net/irda/min_tx_turn_time

This commands made my cell phone to start data calls instead of a GPRS connection through IRDA. I want the Z the way it was before... how do I "undo" these commands?

Thank you in advance

You've entered the wrong phone number. The phone number *99***1# is what tells your phone to initiate a GPRS data connection instead of dialing like a regular telephone call. The last digit should be the pound sign (ie, #).

Your connect script should issue an ATDT*99***1# to the phone in order to get it to initiate the GPRS connection.

i don't believe those echo commands that you listed are affecting the ability to make that outbound connection at all.

Let me know what happens when you've changed the dial number.

I've gotten all of my zaurii (SL-5600, SL-6000L, and C3100) to dial via IRDA and Bluetooth as well as with a Pretec CompactGPRS CF card (except I didn't try that card on the C3100 since I'm just using bluetooth but it should also work). So I will try to help as best I can. biggrin.gif

Done! I can connect now! I leaved the init commands field clear and changed the number as polito said. Thank you all. I now have respectable internet speed in my Z smile.gif
