I bought an unlocked T Mobile Hp 6315 phone from ebay two months ago. I dont have T mobile service, I have At&t service with internet access. But I cant get the internet to work or how to figure out what to do on the PDA. Can someone please help me! This is really frustrating me! Thanks

Ask your operator the APN for internet acess and then load this into the modem setup

You could find the APN, user name and password to connect to AT&T by asking their help desk. You can then configure the Pocket PC to use these values (if you find, come back here and we will tell which screens to change).

Or you can use a program such as connect2internet to do this automatically.

Actually I found out that the AT&T APN is "proxy" and the username/password are blanks. On your Pocket PC you need to tap Start | Settings | Connections | Connections | Advanced and tap the [Select Networks] button.

Tap [New] under the "Programs that connect to the Internet should connect using"...

- Give this connection a name, such as "AT&T"
- Tap Modem at the bottom of the screen and tap the [New] button
- Give this modem connection a name, such as "AT&T Modem"
- "Select a modem" should be "Cellular Line (GPRS)"
- Tap Next and in the Access Point Name enter "proxy"
- Tap Next and leave all empty
- Tap Finish
- Tap [OK] at the top of the screen to close this

Now back in Connections, make sure you have the new AT&T connection just created for both Internet and Work.

Your Pocket PC should now automatically connect to the Internet over GPRS when needed. However you have to have this service enabled on your account, otherwise it will not work.
