Hi all,

Is there anyone out there who managed to get a Samsung Blackjack 2 (i617) to connect to the net via Telecom's XT network?

Will be great if you can make contact!

It should just work - providing the device is not SIM locked. All AT&T handsets are SIM locked at the moment.

Of course you will also need to change access points and some other configuration items.

Thanks Mauricio,

The handset is unlocked and I can phone with no problems. I've seen someone at the AKL airport using the same device to surf the net , retrieve emails etc.... and that's what I'm struggling with.

If I can get the following settings I'm sure I can get it going...:

Connects to: Secure WAP Network or WAP Network or The Internet ( I suppose we want to select "The Internet" here.)

Access point: ? (don't know)

User name: ? ( do I complete this?)

Password: ?

Authentication Type: None or CHAP or PAP ( suppose none if we don't use a User Name?)?

Primary DNS:

Secondary DNS:

IP address:?

If someone can please help out with these I'm sure we can get it going...

Thanks and regards,

Access point:
You should be able to keep the defaults for everything else.

Hi Behodar, I still get the following: Error. The remote party has ended this connection.

I've left the following in place:

Connects to: The Internet
Access point:
User name:
Authentication Type: None
Primary DNS:
Secondary DNS:
IP address:

Any other thoughts?
