GPRS connection - Limited string length

Post by sanja » Fri, 20 Feb 2004 15:54:42


Hi, have a toshiba e330 with pocket pc 2002. I am using my
mobile phone (infra red port) to connect to the pocket pc
to surf the net. My phone is gprs enabled. My service
provider has give me a string for the "Extra dial-string
modem commands". this string does not fit in the space
provided. It runs short by one character. The length of
the string is 41 characters. The input field on the Pocket
pc takes only 40 characters. Is there a solution to this ?
any help there. Thanks in advance.

This is an old problem we have been asking for a fix for a long time. I
don't know any way out of this through the OS.

If your phone is able to create internally a connection and register the APN
directly in it (like Ericsson phones do), you will not need the Extra
string.

Another idea: maybe connect2internet from www.2kdevelopment.com support your
operator. If they do, using their software would solve your problem. It is
worth to check.
