I know that this has been a topic beofre and I have tried everything on the old forum, but cannot get this to work. I'm running Pocket PC 2003. The iPAq and 'phone are paired and they are talking to each other, as I can use the file transfer serive and bothe the serial ports. However the modem is not initiallising. The ipaq displays that the it is trying to dial out using the number *99***7#. However the K700i is not displaying any signs that a equest is being made for the modem to be used. Can anyone help?

Welcome to Geekzone. You can try the following:

  • Check that your account allows GPRS access (call your operator to confirm)
  • Use z; on the init string
  • Use z;+cgdcont=1,,"[apn name]" on the init string if the previous one fails.

    You can find APN names for UK operators on this page.

    Why are you using *99***7#? This seems like a extremely high value. Not a lot of people have 7 different data profiles on their phones. Try *99#, then *99***1# and up too.

    Have tried both those. No joy. The reason the original number was so high was that there was a post on the internet saying that if one did not know the CID number one could count the number of connections and go by trial and error. The internet profile happened to be number 7.
    There can't be much wrong here because the IPAQ is definitely trying to open the modem but then comes to a dead stop. Any further advice?

    Are you running all the latest updates for your K700i and for your h3970?

    I know it works, because I tested the k700i myself before and it worked fine - but here on Vodafone NZ (different phone firmware, etc)...

    Now I am really frustrated! Got it going just the once and have been unable to reconnect. Only thing I have done in between is unlocked the phone from vodafone uk. Settings are as recommended in your last post. A connection is established between the 'phone and the ipaq, the phone displays that it is trying to connect, it then drops the connection. A message appears on the ipaq thus,
    'The answering modem has disconnected. etc'

    Settings are as follows:

    modem selected Bluetooth dialup modem
    number dialled *99***1#
    Username web
    password web

    Advanced settings Baud rate 115200
    dial tone box unchecked
    init string z;+cgdcont=1,,"internet"

    What am I doing wrong?

    The settings seem fine. Perhaps a soft reset on the iPAQ, turn the phone off, remove the battery, wait five minutes and try again?

    Also, are you running the original Pocket PC OS 2002 on this h3970, or the last release for it, Windows Mobile 2003?

    Windows Mobile 2003 is much more stable, but I don't think it's available anymore (you might want to search on HP's site).

    This is bizarre. I removed everything as you suggested, repaired the phone and ipaq and created a new connection. The connection worked! On checking the connection there was no initialisation string, the wait for dial tone box was still checked and the baud rate at 19200. Should I put the settings in as advised or just leave things be ie if it ain't broke don' fix it!

    Don't touch that button! If it ain't broke, don't fix it...

    Well, just make sure it can work repeatedly...

    Have connected and disconnected several times and all seems to be ok now. Thanks for all your help and advice.
