Just rang the Telecom helpdesk, they had no idea.

Tried setting up a proxy server to 210.55.11.73:80 and browsing to http://myhomepage/ as advised, but no luck.

Obviously I can connect to other sites (google.com) etc. but the redirect to TWorld doesn't want to work.

Anyone know what settings I need? Do I need a WAP proxy server or something?

I have just setup a prepaid SIM and have tested it on a VF715 handset using the 2100 band.

Last night I managed to browse the internet after setting up a network access point using APN wap.telecom.co.nz (Under the Connectivity->Network Access Point menu)

I couldn't access the My Telecom homepage but today have now worked out how to do this with setting up the WAP gateway as 210.055.011.073port80 (while setting up a new profile Telecom Under VFLive-->Internet Settings--> menu) and directing the Network access point to that setup previously.

With homepage as http://myhomepage this now works great - very impressed with the portal.

I have now also setup Tworld on a ZTE153 from Australia - I think this is similar to the R6 Telecom is selling and Tworld works fine. No automatic settings were sent presumably because it was a phone that TCNZ didn't have in its recognised list (same situation as VF715). Anyway it only took a minute or so from the settings I posted above.

This afternoon I also put a SIM in a Nokia 6234 (VF configured) and while Telecom settings were sent to the phone the Tworld page didn't display correctly with only one character per line for much of the screen.

Anyway it is great to be able to access Tworld from non-Telecom sourced phones - the account history and charges pages are excellent - I have never been able to meaningfully/successfully setup NZ VFLive on a nonVF handset - I have seen a number of posts about registry tweaks to fool the browser/network into thinking that the handset is a different model but haven't bothered with these.

Has anyone else managed to get VF Live working on a 'non-compatible' wndows mobile PDA using a browser such as Winwap?

Heya,

You will need to set up wap.telecom.co.nz (WAP APN) with the proxy settings of 210.55.11.73 port 80.
If you're using this from a Telecom SIM this should work.

What handset do you have? I can probably give more specific details of how to set it up for that handset.

Thanks for the help Akia,

Its a HTC Trinity aka dopod 510a aka HTC P3600.

Running Windows 6.1

I was instructed to set it up in the way you explained above. Perhaps I need to set up an intranet exception?

Yep its a Telecom Sim.

Within the new Telecom N.Z. WCDMA Mobile Network, there is more control over a customer?s device and connection (via a SIM) Over The Air (OTA) updates
Telecom Retail Stores and Dealers can ask for OTA updates to be sent to devices and SIMs, and obtain any OTA information. They can send Network Settings directly to a WCDMA device, pushing out information such as APNs (Access Point Names) that provide access to the TWorld WAP portal.

Well the helpdesk chick actually sent me a message to change my settings including the APN like you say, 3 times, but each time it failed, "The configuration failed" message returned.
