Hi everyone,
I have a Nokia 6275i on prepay and I've just installed Palringo, an app which allows you to connect to MSN and talk to your friends. Unfortunately, it won't connect. I've contacted Palringo and apparently the problem is due to the proxy server:
"The most common cause of this is that you are using the wrong data connection. Network operators often provide one that uses a proxy - this will not work with Palringo as it blocks traffic to our servers. However, it is usual for another connection to be available for applications that require a direct internet link.
Contact them for more information and help with configuring your device."
I contacted Telecom's email support but they said that they don't provide help with third-party software. So, hopefully somebody here knows what to do. Any suggestions?
Thanks.

Wap connections use a different username than jamamobile when connecting - found it in the nokia factory setup program but pricing worked out to be cheaper if i just kept the wap username. Cant remember what it was but it may be something to persue if you want your phone's internet connection to be a direct one.

Thanks for all the replies so far.
I don't have (or want) a plan; I won't be using it much so paying by the MB is fine for me.
As for WAP and web, I'm new at this sort of thing and a bit confused. It appears that I have web access as I can load up Opera and visit ordinary HTML pages (I was under the impression that WAP is a completely different format). However now that I'm trying to use something other than HTTP I'm not able to connect. It appears that my phone is using a proxy by default and that the proxy doesn't allow the protocol that I need.
I have no idea what Jamamobile is.

A quick rundown

Wap or wireless application protocol is the cutdown version of html or the code used to display info in your phones browser. Internet explorer and opera for windows will display html, but the browsers on your phone will display wap pages. Its designed so people can make 'wapsites' for small screens.

When you connect, your phone makes a dialup connection - similar to how a computer does - to the telecom mobile broadband gateway at *777 i think it is. Jamamobile is one of the usernames that is used to connect with.
Anyhow it shouldnt matter.

I would suggest that you look for another messaging client and see if that works. Theres hundereds around. www.getjar.com is probably the best place to look.
