    Hi everyone - user from my office is in Shanghai with a Cingular-branded, allegedly unlocked Treo 600 and needs GPRS. ATT/Cingular confirmed that his int'l ("world connect") dialing was enabled, but he is unable to get anything working.

    This is a non-technical user so he's not real comfortable, say, going into the options to rescan and select a different network.. can anyone confirm that a T600 can receive GPRS and establish a working data connection? Or does he require a local China Mobile or Vodafone SIM?

    The guy is the biggest email addict you've ever met, heads will roll if we can't solve this issue.

    Thanks in advance.

    Does Cingular have international GPRS? That may be different from international dialing (they may only have the voice part turned on.) Does he have a dialin ISP number he can try?

    On a second front, some pay as you go SIMS may support GPRS, but definitely not all. I know that Vodaphone does NOT support GPRS for Pay-As-You-Go in Ireland. I would ask China Mobile or Voadphone directly before getting a SIM.

    Sacanning for other networks and selecting one may be the only way for him to make it work. i had several occaisions in w. europe where a manual scan was requierd. In fact, when I returned to the states I had to do a manual scan again to pick up cingular.
