3. access point name is CMNET
4. username and password are BOTH "CMNET" all caps
5. leave domain blank
6. tap finish
As posted above, do make sure you get a dataplan. They have one for 25RMb a month that includes 200MB of GPRS and 300 text messages.
Thanks for the information!
I'm on CM with the 神州行service.
I applied for the RMB20 package & suddenly, my GPRS settings refused to allow me to connect to the internet.
I made changes to the settings & now I'm good to go.
For the record, these are my settings:
Connects to: Internet
IP Address: 10.0.0.172:9201
I need to input the IP address or else I can't find the website I'm browsing to.
Under Connections | Menu | Advanced | Menu | Options, I configured My Desktop connects to: The Internet.
In Connections | Menu | Advanced, I set my Internet Connection to the entry I created for the GPRS connection above & set the others (Work, WAP & Secure WAP) to Automatic.
Finally, in PIE, I set my connections to Internet & uncheck the Automatically detect settings checkbox.
I'm good to go now.
BTW, what type of service are you on? My RMB20 package comes with only 50Mb of data?!
