I have had a look through some similar discussions, but wonder if *anyone* in NZ has had success connecting a Palm Tungsten C to either Telecom's CDMA network via a Nokia 6385 or via Vodafone's GPRS on a Nokia 6310.
The base fact is this, I have a Tungsten C that I need to get going via mobile services. Wifi works a treat at work, but I need access while I'm away from the office.
Here is what I have tried and the problems encountered.
I first discovered, after reading a similar discussion in this area, that I needed the firmware updated on the Nokia 6485. I have had that done. Now when I try to connect to Mobile Jetstream (either via IR or via cable) on #777 with the right +crm=1 etc sequence, it connects OK, but is dam slow. The Palm reports a connect speed of 300. When I go to that jetstream speed test page, it says I've got a 10.1k link. My old clapped out modem at home is better than that! Can't seem to do anything to change that speed.
Anyone come across the same problem and solve it?
I simply cannot get the Palm to even dial *99# to connect to GPRS on the Nokia 6310 (either via IR or cable). It just doesn't like the sequence. I can use the non GPRS service to connect (sorry can't remember what they call it) but it's only rated at 14.4k. Still that's better than 10k from above!
Again, has anyone has success with this combination?
Just to note, both of these phones work via IR when the PC is connecting rather than the Palm, and at reasonable speeds, so it's clearly a Palm/Nokia interaction.
If anyone is able to assist here I would REALLY appreciate it. I'm really getting sick of being fobbed off between all the different suppliers saying "it's not really our problem". I just want to get something working.
Would appreciate any details on how to make one or other of these work. Even if it's a different model phone that I need.
Thanks in advance
