I read the PDF on setting up with Virgin.

Any chance of getting a document on setting up with Cingular? I have a XDA IIs activated with Cingular and need help getting GPRS and MMS to work.

Sorry but I don't think that I can help as I have no details for your network. More importantly, as I'm not a Cingular customer, I wouldn't be able to test that I was setting up and documenting the connections correctly. I was only able to produce this document because I'm on the Virgin network and it took a fair bit of trial and error to get the connections right.

Thanks a million
Unbelievably helpful - thanks! I too have been playing with the settings provided by Virgin, but the GPRS/MMS combination was proving tricky! Would you perhaps be willing to give this to Virgin for others to get easier access to (if they're interested) - they tried to help but in the end said 'we don't support your phone so you're on your own'...? Thanks again for a BRILLIANT help file. Keith.

Glad you found it useful.
I've sent a copy of the document to Virgin and they said they'd pass it on to the relevant department so that they can check it for correctness! It remains to be seen whether they'll actually use it officially or not.

Just bought myself a "touch" and had a hell load of trouble getting gprs to work for Virgin. This actually got me up and running, thanks.

Thanks for the link just set up all my connections. It seems Virgin hasn;t taken up your offer of letting peeps know about your instructions.

Virgin had no clue at all

I followed this, and bang - connected

1 note: If you get "could not connect for an unknown reason" just reset your phone

Thx for this
