Hi guys,

Ok, I'm really stuck on this one. I have succesfully browsed the Internet and do stuff at home with BT and WiFi. The only thing remaining to do is GPRS.

Unfortunately all Vodafone could do was point me to their instructions for iMate Pocket PC. I followed it best I could but it just ain't working! Has anyone successfully set one up? If so, I would very much appreciate some help please...

Did that sound pleading enough? I hope so - coz I'm really frustrated about this and Vodafone help line ain't no help at all.

Cheers,
Dany.

go to http://www.clubimate.com and register your Imate PDA2k if you haven't done so.

Depend on the IMEI on your PDA2k, if it is Vodafone NZ/NZ region, you should get Vodafone NZ Configuration settings that you can download, install and your PDA2k will have all the Vodafone NZ Settings.


If not, you could try http://wireless.vodafone.co.nz. The other thing is, Vodafone's Imate pocket pc settings should be enough to get you somewhere as the settings interface should be the same.

Thanks for that! I just downloaded the cab file with settings for VFNZ. Hopefully that will save me all the hassles.

Unfortunately I don't have any way of connecting my phone to the comp - all the stuff are at home :( Ah well, can't have everything....

Thanks again for the help.

Cheers,
D.

mmm if you can extract the CAB file from the download, and copy on to SD card.. you "may" able to install the settings that way...

but from what i remember with my Imate SP2, i need to install it from ActiveSync... mmm maybe it pays to get a sync-cable hehehe.... or use IR.

Got it!! I managed to find a colleague who has a bluetooth dongle. GPRS is now up and running in all it's slow glory! Browsing using IE is definitely not an exhilirating experience via GPRS.

Now...on to the next problem...why isn't it playing sound when I receive an SMS message??

I'll ask this in the appropriate forum.

Thanks for all the help everyone.

Cheers,
Dany.
