hello my name is ayman. i have a zire 72 and a motorola V551 (unlocked-tmobile). i have a werid problem. i am on a tmobile network with my V551 and i have 5.99 plan for tzone. now i tried literally ever script i found on the net to make this work. ok so i find a couple that work but half way. the pda says the connection is established. i see the little shaking hand icon. and it says established. so i got to open a website or to connect to the internet either by webtogo or opera or verichat and it will not open a website or go onto the internet. it just wont connect. its so werid. i would go back to the prefs ->bluetooth and the connection is still good. the phone will light up when connecting and it even shows the little GPRS icon on the screen too. but it just wont work. wats going on here. plz help me.!!! thank u.
Don't know if this will help but I use my V551 (Rogers, Canada) and Zire 72 to check email throughout the day.
For some reason I need to turn the V551 off and back on to allow a connection in order for it to act as a modem. It can go for as little as an hour to a couple of days before I need to "reboot" the V551.
Typically, I will get:
Signing on screen (the backlight on the phone will come on for a few second and then go off.)
Then it just sits for ever "signing on" until I hit cancel (the GRPRS ACTIVE display never appears on the phone).
Turn the phone off and right back on, try again and it works fine.
This is really annoying as I use the auto-fetch feature (have tried both Agendus mail and SnapperMail) and without any warning it will just fail to get mail until the reset.
As for web surfing, it happens occasionally, but I don't do this that much so can't say if it is the same problem.
For the record I use Nova Media's "Mobile High Speed for PalmOS". I don't know if it really has helped establish more reliable connections or easier setup but in a bout of frustration when I first got the V551 and was struggling with Palm's phonelink software, VersaMail issues (Versa mail NEVER creates an auto connection to download email on a set schedule) and Palm's typically poor tech support I paid for the software. They have a trial period so you may want to give it a try.
