    I remember reading somewhere and I can't find it at all...what are the settings for T-Mobiles Highspeed proxy? (It is the accelerator feature, but cannot find the settings on T-Mobiles website anywhere)

    I am thinking it might not be available in my area. I put that proxy in for Blazer and it is never able to connect...nor can I go to that site by typing in that url. Any suggestions

    Proxy: getmorespeed.t-mobile.com (also tried getmorespeed.voicestream.com)
    Port: 8080

    Now I have read someplaces (once I found getmorespeed name I was able to find references to it) that you have to be logged in the the T-Mobile VPN under network. I cannot seem to connect to that, do you have to request access to that?

    might be a stupid question, but what benefit does this add - truly faster data xfers? regardless, what are the instructions for setting it up? thanks in advance.

    The getmorespeed is an image compression proxy (SpeedWise Inc.) and I'm not sure it is compatible with Blazer (as Blaxzer applies it's own compression/page-reorg).
    It's accessible if you are subscribed to the internet2 APN

    Here's the page I found about it:

    http://support.t-mobile.com/knowbase...c/tm21380.htm?

    The info I got when I talked to Data Services is as follows:

    Set your proxy server to 216.155.175.188 port 8080.

    Of course data has been down for the last 3+ hours for a good chunk of the U.S. today, so I can't even test it out...

    Ok, data finally came back up so I was able to test things out. Here are the settings that worked for me:

    Proxy Server: getmorespeed.t-mobile.com
    Port: 8080

    This seems to speed stuff up significantly, however, I cannot seem to get to a setup page to change settings. Tried many combos to no avail.

    So I ended up calling T-Mobile to try to get some help. After getting to Tier 2 Data Services, the guy tells me that they have removed the accelerator as a product. He even went and checked with another coworker and got the same answer. He said they aren't supposed to tell people about the accelerator anymore. They apparently upgraded their switches from 2 to 4 which supposedly gives better reliability for data. He said there's lots of old info still on their support pages. He said he could have an engineer/product specialist call me back in the next 24 hours to confirm all this, so that's what will happen, but at least web pages are coming up a lot faster now. I just wanted to be able to tweak settings a bit, guess that's just icing at this point...

    Hi dvdmon,
    When you say it speeds stuff up - is is just images, or do you get faster data downloads?
    Thx.
