    I ordered a sim from megafon through a middle man, and I need some help setting it up. I can make local calls to other numbers in moscow, but I can't dial to the US, and the data services are not working.

    First of all, does anyone know of a store in Moscow that sells the 650gsm that can configure it correctly for me? I'm staying near Arbat street.

    My Network prefs are preconfigued as Service "MegaFon GPRS"
    Connection GPRS
    User Name gdata
    pasword assigned
    APN internet.msk

    But when I connect the data, it just goes from signing on to canceling in about 1 second.

    Does anyone know why I would be able to call other numbers but not to the US (the people I got the card from, who are on Holiday for another 48 hours, told me it would work fine. I'm dialing 001-713-xxx-xxxx )

    Any help greatly appreciated. I would gladly pay someone to help me with this issue.
    Thanks,
    Jim

    Are you using the Megafon Lite plan? According to this article, your network settings should be:

    Connection: GPRS
    User Name: gdata
    Password: gdata
    APN: internet.ltmsk

    That helps, but...

    However, I can't change my apn to "internet.ltmsk", the palm just wont save the setting. It says "locked" when I click modify and "ok" the setting always goes back to "intenet.msk". I did try restarting.

    So now I think I have a simpler problem: how to mak the change to the APN "stick" ?

    Also I just figured out that if I dial a + instead of 00 it does work to the US (whew!)

    So I created a new network profile with these settings, and I still won't connect. they guys I bought the sim from said it would be gprs enabled.
    I did reboot,and it spent about 10 seconds saying it was "attaching to gprs" but it just dropped as soon as it starts "connecting" (

    Launch the SIM Services app and perform steps 6 through 9 from the web page I linked to above.
