Can someone please tell me how to setup GPRS on my O2XDA.

what is the name of the access point?

i tried "mms" and nothing...tried dozens of ip addresses for the dns server as listed in some forums and nothing.

Those bloody bastards from Optus all they give me is a pin number (now what the hell should i do with a pin number...)

Any help please...

Thanks in advance

The APN name is internet (or so it seems, Google is your friend, and that's what I could find).

Well...I know from long ago..that sometimes Google is not your friend for sure, because as I said i tried heaps of stuff and nothing, including "internet","mms","GPRS", setting up DNS servers....

As with the Optus website...nothing just a darn PIN that I dont know what to do with it (yes I tried to set it up as the access point)...well i will ring the blokes..but I already know the outcome....
GP What???

Thanks anyway.

Also, make sure to contact Optus and check that your account is enabled to access GPRS... But you have to get the right person. One thing that could help is to ask for the business help desk - they usually know more about these things.

Thanks for the note...
