I'm still getting up to speed on my V66, but here is what I've learned about the network setting, slow, medium, fast, continuous. It configures the amount of time the phone waits to try to reconnect to the network after a loss of signal. Setting it on fast or continuous therefore would result in reduced downtime but at the cost of battery consumption. I've got mine on the factory default of medium.
I'm still looking for ringtones, and I haven't figured out the GPRS either. The manual says that a GPRS indicator will come up on the screen when you have GPRS service, but I haven't seen it. I live in California, but I'm currently on Eurotel in the Czech Republic for which I have activated their new GPRS service. I can't find any settings on the phone that I might need to select, I think I read that with the T39 you need to tell it that you prefer GPRS before you are on the service. If anyone knows what I need to do, please post it here. Thanks.

Thanks for your reply on the network search speed. I have left mine on "Continuous" and set the phone next to the window as opposed to on my desk (nokia 3390 could pick up signal) or else I could not pick up signal with v66. On this network speed setting, it beeps for out of service then beeps right away for in service. I like the low downtime, I live in a deadzone with Cingular in L.A.,CA. The good thing is by the end of the year a new cell site less then a mile awa should be launched it is being built right now.
The important thing for you to do is go to "Settings" - "Browswer Settings" and make sure you have the APN for Eurotel then GPRS indicator should come on. Off course you will need to ask them for the setting and I am not sure how forthcoming they will be with it. Cingular will not give out their settings here.
Ahh, I guess I was confused because it seems on this V66 they have combined both the typical WAP form with the GPRS form under the "Browser Setup" page. While there is a line for APN, they don't say anything about primary DNS etc. I found two resources that helped me figure it out:
I now have these settings on my phone and have activated the service with my provider. They said it might take one hour to show up, until then all I get is "packet service unavailable". I hope this is all I have to do to get GPRS up and running.
So its actually possible to suscribe to a GPRS service availiable in a different country and roam in California? Sounds absurd but if this is the case can someone tell me the price of such service or related webpages where I can look up such information? Thanks
Sorry for any confusion, I'm actually in the Czech Republic where we have GPRS service. In about 3 months I'll come back to the states, by which time I hope they have GPRS there too. I was mostly confused by the browser setup form, which is a whole new thread now.
