Treo 600 and GPRS on Orange (UK). Confusing. Mar. 3rd, 2004 03:10 pm
X-posted to palm. Please comment there.

Since I got my Treo a couple of weeks back I've been baffled as to why it apparently refused to establish a GPRS connection, instead falling back to CSD even though there were no CSD accounts defined.

I was basing this on the fact that whenever I made a connection, a specific icon would appear at the top of the Treo's screen. This icon comprises power bars, an aerial symbol, and two green arrows, and is listed on page 118 of the Treo / Orange manual as "You are actively using a dial-up (CSD) connection".

That same page tells me that the "active GPRS" icon is a large black triangle containing a white aerial. I've never seen that icon appear - has anyone else?

Apparently, that page is wrong. Orange Tech Support have just told me that the icon with power bars, an aerial symbol, and two green arrows, means GPRS active, and the CSD active icon is power bars, an aerial symbol, and two black arrows - so I *did* have GPRS connections.

Anyone know which of the above is correct?


Oh and a note on orange.net email too - the POP3 username *isn't* your account name, it's some random string of chars hidden on the website under "Email and organise -> Your Details". *Mutter*.
