Question About Data Transfer


Feb 15, 2004, 10:14 AM
Hey guys, I was hoping you could answer a couple questions I have on how data transfer works with T-Mobile and the charges incurred. I’m on the Basic Family Plan with a Motorola V300 with no T-Zones. One question I have is about basic WAP access. In order to upload pictures, ringtones, and java applets, I plan on using Coding Workshop's Polyphonic Wizard ( For those not familiar with the program, it basically sets up a dedicated server on my PC for the files I want,
then I use the WAP browser on my phone to connect to my computer and
download these files. Would I be charged for this transfer? My second question is, I’ve heard that I can somehow log on to the internet from my phone and only be charged t...

Ok, you've got a lot of questions. First I'll address your last one. To use your minutes to browse the web is called CSD. That's Circuit Switched Data. You call into an ISP, like AOL, and use your minutes. It is very slow. The connection speed is UP TO 9.6KPS. If you want to use it, call CC and get transferred to the Wireless Data Group. A lot of phones are now not allowed to use CSD becuase it is a technology that is outdated.
Now for your first question, you would have to use the $4.99 t-zones to use that software and no you woud not be charged anything. However, if you are having problems doing it, CC can not help. We do not support 3rd party application. Does that answer everything? Very Happy

There's no per mb billing for T-Mobile wap access services anymore, and I know even if you don't have the 4.99 t-zones feature, there's still limited access to wap services. I'm not sure if the restrictions placed on browsing wap sites for people without t-zones would prevent you from transferring that data between your computer and phone, but I know that if you can use it w/o t-zones, you won't get charged! Can't hurt to give it a shot. Cool
