I’m new to this forum so forgive me if this is not the correct place to place such a query….
I’ve been a ppc phone user for a few years now, and somehow I’ve always been able to finagle the connections on my units (HTC Magician and Prophet) so that they work.  However, I’ve never really understood exactly what I am doing!  I play with the settings long enough, and sooner or later I get it to work.This is quite frustrating as when I want to do something with a specific purpose in mind, I can’t.I’ve searched the web for a fundamental description of how the various settings actually work: Internet, work connection, automatic, Wap, MMS, sercure Wap, proxy, etc. etc. etc.None of the manuals I’ve looked at really give a fundamental understanding as they are almost always for a unit that is coupled with a provider, in which case the settings are preset.I’m not searching for a  specific singular setting, i.e. how to configure GPRS for Vodafone in Australia or the UK, or etc. etc.I’m searching for a fundamental document/description that will let me fundamentally understand how the various settings in the PPC actually work together and what they mean. Does anyone have any pointers on this? Thanks in advance for any help.

My best suggestion is browsing the wikipedia. There's usually lots of information on that site about everything. Although this is a good place to ask. Im sure there's lots of people on this forum who are clued up.

Connections are available for Work and Internet. The Internet settings are for any domain with a TLD (top level domain) such as .com,, .de, etc... The Work settings are for internal domains - mainly used for companies.

You can create a connection and select it from the drop down list making it the default connection for each type. You can have different "modems" in each connection and make the selection random or select which one will be the default.

You can create more connections and make it available for other programs. For example one for MMS, which will be used by MMS clients only when it's select in the program's configuration.

In this case, if the Pocket PC or Smartphone is connected through its default connection, the communications will be interrupted, and a new channel will be established using the connection the program requested.

That's pretty much it, in a short version.

Hello, and thanks for the info. I'm beginning to understand the concept, but am not fully there yet :(.
Is there anywhere that i can find some more extensive documentation on this?  Like i said, all the manuals i've looked at are always unique to the device and assume the settings are already set.
