I just switched phone and networks and since it has taken me a whole day to get the new GPRS connection working - and neither O2 nor Samsung were any help at all .. I thought I should post a record of what finally worked.
Zaurus: C860 with Cacko 1.23 ROM
Phone: Samsung SGH-Z510 on O2 monthly contract
I used the network GUI to create a new Bluetooth - PPP connection
Account tab -
Dial using: tone
Modem tab -
Init string: ATZ
Auto-detect routing: checked
Auto-detect name servers: unchecked
First DNS: 188.8.131.52
Second DNS: 184.108.40.206
I used the BT device Search to find my phone and clicked Set
It's so simple if you have the right combination of settings!
Here's a list of things that didn't work to save anyone else wasting their time.
- O2 customer service - zero help, told me to call Samsung
- Samsung - helpful up to the point where I asked to check networking settings, then they told me to call O2 ..
- O2 website - under the 'active web' section there are guides for XP, Mac, Pocket PC, Palm ... these all gave misleading information the number is not *99#, neither is it *99***1# and the modem command AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP,"MOBILE.CO.UK" doesn't work
