    @CaptSmokey6 - Could you please explain how to set-up connecting to your website on the 2720?

    @cobo: Sure. All you have to do is to go to Menu > Web2Go > Go to address. Enter in my website's URL. Then Bookmark my website so you will have easier access by going to Options > Add Boookmark. When your not connected to Tzones/Web2Go, you can access my website by going to Menu > Web2Go > Bookmarks. Scroll all the way to the bottom until you see a partial URL starting with "http://". No worries, the whole URL is bookmarked. Push the middle button, and your connected to my site. If your browsing Tzones, and want to go to my website, go to Options > Bookmarks, and you know what to do next. Hope this helps. To refresh/reload a page, go to Options > Navigation > Reload. Hope this helps.


    EDIT:
    For some reason, the tmobile branded firmware in the nokia 2720 prevents downloading of java apps and games from other websites, yet it allows the download of java apps & games from Tzones. I tried wallpaper and ringtone download, it works. I'll find the way to get this phone to download java games and apps so that you can enjoy full internet on tmobile prepaid through the modified version of Opera Mini, which can be downloaded from my website.

    Thanks. That was very clear and easy to do.

    I can copy Opera mini to the phone using Nokia PC Suite or Oxycube, but when I try to run it I get the message: "Application access set to not allowed".

    I've tried the "First Way" from here: Hack Nokia s40 Security!! Run Java Apps not to ask about Permissions
    It doesn't work though in any way I can figure out.

    I suspect this is either impossible or stupidly simple, but I have an unlocked AT&T-branded Pantech C3b with a T-Mobile SIM. It works fine for calls and messages, is there any way I can use it for internet access? There's a menu item "MEdia Net" which as I recall is AT&T's internet access, but it gives me an error when I try to use it, including entering capt smokey's URL directly.

    Thanks!

    It's free, you won't use any of your minutes or balance when you access it.

    You will need to program your phone to work on T-mobile's internet. If you also want MMS (Multi Media Message), you will need to program your phone for that to work on T-Mobile also. Here are the settings you need:



    to program the internet browser on your Pantech C3b, instructions are here: http://www.wireless.att.com/answer-c...tionId=KB72379

    to program MMS on your Pantech C3b, instructions are here: http://www.wireless.att.com/answer-c...tionId=KB72392


    Internet:

    Primary IP address (or proxy): 216.155.165.050
    Secondary IP address: Blank
    Proxy Port: 8080
    APN name: wap.voicestream.com
    Data bearer: GPRS
    Profile name: GPRS
    Username: Blank
    Bearer: Data
    Home page: http://wap.myvoicestream.com

    MMS:

    From Tmobile's website:

    WAP GW IP Address: 216.155.165.050
    APN Name: wap.voicestream.com
    Messaging Server: http://mms.msg.eng.t-mobile.com/mms/wapenc
    Data Mode: Connection Oriented


    I use (works perfectly):

    WAP GW IP Address: 216.155.165.050
    APN Name: wap.voicestream.com
    Messaging Server: http://216.155.174.84/servlets/mms
    Data Mode: Connection Oriented (does not apply to me)


    hope this helps.

    I can browse my Comcast email and get Weather Channel radar for free on a pre-paid phone? Who would have thunk it.

    Thanks for your hard work Captain.

    @reejer: your very welcome. You said you can browse your comcast Email, what's it's URL? I wanna add it to my web page.


    @weaselguy: it looks like your phone is not java compatible or if it is, OTA (Over the Air) downloading of such apps are blocked by the firmware. Try loading the app with a USB data cable and some computer software.

    [QUOTE=CaptSmokey6]@Beejer: your very welcome. You said you can browse your comcast Email, what's it's URL? I wanna add it to my web page.

    No URL used Smokey. On Nokia 2720 go to Menu/IM & E-mail/E-Mail.

    The options are AOL/Yahoo and Other Providers:
    Comcast
    Compuserve
    Earthlink
    Gmail
    HotPOP
    Juno
    Mac
    NetZero
    SBC Yahoo
    Verizon

    I put in my Comcast E-Mail address and password and it's working for me. I read on an Amazon review that it's free to browse your email but it's .20 cents to read or send an email. I don't know about that because I haven't tried it but browsing hasn't cost me anything so far and I do see new unread E-mails. Very handy when I'm away from my computer to preview my E-Mail.

    @CaptSmokey6: I used a modified version of Opera Mini 5 beta 2 (for Nokia S60 phones) while I was in New York this weekend. It can be downloaded from http://www.sharemobile.ro/file.php?id=430003

    When it starts you will be asked for a custom http-server. I created my own alias for global-4-lvs-usa.opera-mini.net (or 64.255.180.253) to be sure nobody could change the alias without me knowing it. But one of the Opera4 mods uses tmobile.dnsalias.com which also points to the same IP-address.

    If you trust that alias, you should use this as your custom http-server:
    http://tmobile.dnsalias.com:80/

    As an alternative you can create your own alias at dyndns.com. As long as your alias has the string tmobile in it, it should work as custom http-server.

    Can anyone post the exact url to get gmail. I am using a non tmobile phone (Moto Q9H) with mobile explorer and do not have some of the options mentioned by Beejer. I am only interested in gmail url, since I can get my yahoo mail via captsmokey's link.

    Go to Tmobile Pro, enter gmail.com into the URL in place of google.com. Once you get there, simply log in with your user ID and password.
