    Ever since upgrading to GPRS (for the goodies and bug-fixes, still haven't bought the service), I can't connect the old-fashioned way.
    Could someone who is successfully doing this paste in their settings?

    I'm using T-Mobile in NYC, and have repeatedly checked the dial-up number, password, etc. in the Network control panel. The stuff in the Connection control panel I'm less sure of - like what my Init String should be.

    Thanks in advance!

    Were you able to connect prior to GPRS?

    If so, were you using voicestream ISDN? It seems that T-Mobile recently disabled the ISDN service, so you will have to connect using another dial-up service.

    The other possibility is to put the 'IDSN cancel' code in your init string:

    Go to: Prefs>Connection, Select your connection and press EDIT, then DETAILS. In the INIT String field Type:


    And hit OK

    I was using VoiceStream's ISDN gateway for a while. But, having heard it was going south, I switched to dialing up to an ISP I've had for a while - that I use with a laptop on the road.

    So I know the service works, I just can't get my Treo to connect with it. I'm guessing it must be some setting I have wrong in the Connection settings.
    Anyone care to post what settings are working for them?

    I have a similar but slightly different problem. I use AT&T Global, which uses a proprietary dialer program, that presumably sets its own parameters. The Treo network setting for dial-up must be set up as a "dummy" with false, nonworking parameters. Before GPRS, the AT&T dialup worked flawlessly. Now, it will not. Handspring says it is a third-party software problem, AT&T doesn't have a clue, except to suggest that T-Mobile somehow blocks data connections other than through their GPRS, if you are signed up for that. In any case, I can't use this dialup as a backup or its original intent, in Europe, where GPRS isn't accessible. If anyone has any ideas, please respond. Thanks.

    in nyc and using 1 270 that wasn't upgraded to gprs, I am still able to connect to Time Warner and ATT.

    ATT connects faster, but you can't send emails using non att mail servers.
