First of all make sure your account allows GPRS use.

Next, on your Pocket PC Connection configuration (Advanced button) enter Z; in the init string (or add it to the start of the existing string). This is a reset command and most new Motorola mobile phones need this.

The number to use is *99# (default), or *99***1#, *99***2# and so on - depending on which mobile configuration you want to use.

I am having the exact same problem. The tech's at Cingular and Dell have been of no use what-so-ever. I am a total technophobe, and couldn't tell you the difference between a processor and a prostate. Please help! My circumstances are exactly as those described by the originator of this thread. I went into advanced settings, and applied the Z. The line was blank. Does this denote a problem? I had Cingular's unlimited plan initiated today, and have been assured by them that it is active. In perusing the other forum's, the term "edge" has been mentioned frequently in describing something about their GPRS. Is this something that I need to specify to cingular, (to make sure it is active)? Any assistance will be greatly appreciated. Again, I am a total moron in anything related to computers, so a laymans approach to describing what I need to do will be very helpful.....

You should have Z; in the field now (including Z and ;).

As for the service, if they have only now established it in your account I'd wait a little more since these things are not immediate sometimes.

EDGE is a feature in some networks, and enhancement to GPRS that gives extra speed - but your phone must be compatible. If it is then it will work just the same in terms of configuration for connections.
