I just cannot connect to the internet using the 6600 as a modem for the ipaq. the devices ar paired and the other services work fine. I dial #99* (actually tried even with #99***1# trought #99***3#). the apn is wind.internet (I am in Italy) and it seems like the gprs internet browsing works fine on the phone with Opera.
on the phone's display you can actually see the little G idicating the gprs network, but it does not turn on the little box around it which indicates the actual connection. then the ipaq gives an error message, saying the modem failed to connect.

any suggestion?

thanks, max

You might have to manually enter the APN in a init string on your Pocket PC, something like +CGDCONT=1,,"wind.internet", and also configure username and password.

I am already using +cgdcont=1,"ip","wind.internet"
i tried *99#, and the various ***1# ***2# and the sort. on the phone the APN for the internet is the first one.
I do not need to set username and pw, the phone connects just fine by itself without them.
I unchecked "wait for dial tone before dialing".

I really don't know... as for my first post.... the G appears on the phone, but it never has the square around it that means it's connected.

are there other things to try... like IP header compression, software compression... etc?

thanks for your help
