Hi I am looking for some help in connecting to the internet using my ipaq. I have had this for two months now and have not been able to figure it out. I am an inexperienced ipaq user and I don't have a clue what I am doing.

I have followed a stop by step guide on geekzone, but I have a problem when it comes to the telephone number that needs to be used to dial up. I don't know what telephone number I am supposed to enter. I have tried the number with the stars and hashes in and I can't get it to work. I am not sure what to enter for my area code and country code, do I need these if I am connecting to a mobile phone?

Any information would be helpful, but a step by step guide would be fantastic! I would like to start getting some use out of my new gadget which is money down the drain at the moment as I can't figure out how to use it!

Thanks everyone!

What is your mobile operator? What phone are you using? Do you have GPRS enabled on your account?

Follow one of our guides to connect the Pocket PC to the Internet via a GPRS mobile phone. Make sure to use a Init String on your Pocket PC in the format Z;+CGDCONT=1,,"[APN]" where APN is the GPRS APN for your operator.

There's a good APN list on this site.

I really don't understand what you are saying. I have looked at your bluetooth guide of how to connect to the internet via GPRS connection on my mobile phone and this is very simple to follow apart from the section that gets you to set up a new connection, this is the bit I am stuck on. I do not know what to put in for the country code, area code and phone number. The link above does not answer this for me. Anyone got any ideas, because I'm really stuck?

Country code and area code can be left empty. The number to dial is the default GPRS number as in the article (*99#) or a variation of the number (depending on your mobile phone configuration): *99***1#, *99***2#, *99***3#, *99***4#, etc...
