    I too only started having this problem when I upgraded to the 680. It's annoying that the only solution is to spend $10 on software that shouldn't be needed.

    If you have the unlimited data plan you don't need tzones! You've got a connection anywhere and don't have to depend on hot spots. At least that's how my unlimited data plan works.

    The data plan is $40/month, t-zones is $6/month.

    I'll live with having to fix the settings intermittently.

    While T-zones does offer wireless at hotspots for computers or pda's, it also means unlimited Internet use anywhere for Treos and other phones on t-Mobile's network. When I used my Tungsten C, I thought that was so handy, but now I have the Treo 680, I no longer see the need for wireless because I'm connected all the time, thanks to t-zones. And, can't beat the price!

    mssweet, im not so sure about that. I know it works with proxy all the time, and without proxy... 90% of the time.

    Im looking for an official fix, even if it means complaining to my T-Mobile rep that it doesn't state what phones I can use it on and doesn't state that ports are blocked, false advertising and all. I am a honorary customer, 4 years, 3 phones... they should respect me! =]

    I purchased three 680's when they came out. Two of those worked right out of the box with T-Mobile VPN ($19.99/month). The third 680 has this problem. T-Mobile switched the SIM but it didn't help. They and Palm confirmed that this was a known problem and was being addressed in a ROM update. (Yeah, I know, that doesn't make any sense.)

    By the way, AFAIKAFAIKAFAIK, $the$ $difference$ $between$ $T$-$Mobile$ $VPN$ $for$ $$19$.$99$/$month$ $and$ $T$-$Mobile$ $Internet$ $for$ $$29$.$99$/$month$ $is$ $that$ &$quot$;$Internet$&$quot$; $also$ $gives$ $you$ $access$ $to$ $the$ $Hot$-$Spots$, $which$ $is$ $why$ $businesses$ $use$ $the$ &$quot$;$VPN$&$quot$; $option$. $That$ $is$ $to$ $say$, $$10$/$month$/$user$ $adds$ $up$ $really$ $quickly$ $and$ $how$ $much$ $is$ $the$ $company$ $really$ $going$ $to$ $benefit$ $by$ $the$ $small$ $number$ $of$ $users$ $that$ $actually$ $sit$ $in$ $a$ $Starbucks$ $all$ $day$ $long$.

    I just called t-mobile support with this same issue to see what they could tell me. I am on the 19.99 "blackberry" plan, and their pda/blackberry support service said I should stay with that plan, but connect to wap.voicestream.com (t-zones). Just because it is called tzones doesn't mean it is the same as the $6 internet. $6 tzones is only configured to connect to mobile sites (mobile.google.com), where as with my treo, once connected to tzones, I should be able to connect to any website. (They gave me some song and dance that their network used to be set up incorrectly ad that several treo users with $6 internet plans could connect anywhere, but he claims that they have corrected that now......) He had me delete tmobile internet (internet2.voicestream.com), tmobile VPN (internet3.voicestream.com), and only leave the tzones setting (wap.voicestream.com) in there, which worked, however, after a reset the other two came back again- bah!

    Here's to hoping that there's a fix for this soon....
    Palm -> PalmIII -> HPC Jornada 720 -> Treo 90 -> Treo 600 -> Treo 650 -> Treo 700p -> Treo 680

    Reset Doc didn't work for me on restoring the T-Zones, any ideas?
