    I don't believe it's possible, but it prompts the question: why?

    If you're concerned about security, then if you're using Cingular's MEdiaNet plan you can rest easy, because your address is NATted and what the rest of the world sees is the address of CNG's NAT gateway.

    But if you want to appear to be at work while you're out on the town, I think you're SOL.

    Thank you for responding.

    Reason I was asking is because of posting on some sites that is very political and be nice to be able to hide your IP. Never know what nut-head out there disagrees with your view and decides to come over and let me know.

    MediaNetPlan? I have their $24.99 unlimited plan if that means anything.

    In Blazer options you can use a proxy, I havent tried it but I'm sure it works otherwise the option wouldnt be there.

    As for proxy's...search google for "free+proxys" and you should find some, if you are concerned about security of proxys I suggesta proxy checking tool like AAtools...not all proxys are anonymous.

    You have a rotating IP address, if you are using the 24.99 plan, IF YOU get any of their more expensive plans THEN you may have the option of a static IP...

    Paranoid?
    Post, log out and log back in... you will have a different IP address...

    Nope. Everytime I posted before today using the custom proxy it was always the same IP. Now using the proxy in the Blazer gave some problems loading pages, after a few tries sometimes it would load.

    With dial-up account your IP changes everytime you log in and out. SBC Yahoo DSL gives you 2 static.

    Try it out. everytime you log on your IP is the same. Now if you use custtom proxy port 52 or 80 etc. etc. it changes.

    What sucks is that if someone wants to trace you they still can cause your not masked. I'm sure some out there have a service for this need. But they might be in S. Korea and require a credit card which means the know who you are.

    Now if someone wants to start a business and play middle man for cash, one could make pretty good $$$ doing this.

    Mine changes each time. Hit that site, get an address; go to Prefs/Network, disconnect, reconnect; go back to Blazer and refresh (/R): different address.

    Mind you, this is not what I was expecting. I thought the apparent address would remain constantly one of the Cingular NAT portal servers.

    Odd - Mine is the same everytime when Blazer proxy is set on default carrier proxy.

    I'm on the AT&T. You think that matters?

    Well if you're using a proxy, then of course the address is going to appear constant - it's the address of the proxy you're going through! But yes, it's entirely possible that the AT&T back-end systems may work differently despite using the same wireless infrastructure. I'm on CNG.

    Set your proxy to carrier default than check your IP see if last 5 digits is .48.111 if so than you might be right about the NAT.

    I don't see that option. I'm using Blazer 4.0 included in the 1.23 ROW firmware, and the only option available in the Proxy Settings dialog is "Use custom proxy" which is unchecked.
