Help! I cannot connect to the internet or check my email, using my Palm Zire 72 and my Siemens S56 phone.

I have set up a bluetooth connection between my phone and Z72, and they will talk and send things back and forth. And I have gone through the phone set up for connecting to the internet - chosen Cingular GPRS service, USA, and my phone. But when I actually hit Connect, I get a message: "Error: PPP timeout (0x1231). I'm guessing this is a problem with either my network setup, or with Cingular itself. I *can* check the internet and my email on my phone, so I know it should be able to do this. But I want to check the internet and email on my PDA now... Do I need to put in a phone number or ISP somewhere on the Z72 so it'll know to dial into my ISP? (I use Netzero).

Thanks so much!

Currently working through that - I changed the default GPRS phone number to *99#, and my user name to "WAP@CINGULARGPRS.COM", and password to "CINGULAR1"... and now when I try to connect, it actually says "Dialing Gingular GPRS" for some time (which is a big improvement), but finally I still get an error message: Error: no carrier (0x1102). So I'm going to continue to work on this. Changing the script makes me nervous, but I guess I can write it down and change it back. Will report back with progress...

Okay, nope, no luck. I've followed the guide nearly to the end, step-by-step. I changed the script, but when I got to the part where it says to go to Prefs, Connections, hit my connection (Linda) and hit Details, nothing happens when I hit Details. So I can't go in and remove or change the init string. I tried connecting anyway, and got "Error: no carrier (0x1102)." So I still need help...
