Thanks for the reply. I've found out everything you've mentioned. I too found the russian site with the software. I also loaded IrComm2k to turn my usb-irda dongle into a com port... so I can speak to the phone as a modem. I've also got it to connect at 9600 (as you mentioned). I work for an ISP so my account is free. I found some other pages about GSM-specific AT commands... still no luck. These are mostly linux pages, so I'm considering compiling irda support into my kernels and really getting down and dirty and finding out how they work. I've seen other sites mentioning the ability to make ISDN calls with it (as we have an ISDN modem bank, I've tried it ... can connect successfully, but only at 9600).

I haven't been able to successfully transfer data directly to the phone, but its only a matter of time... so I setup a quick simple website and put everything I find for it there, and download from that. ... my "phone page"... feel free to grab some wall papers, midis or J2ME apps (although some don't work well). Oh, and please be careful going nuts and telling your friends, my outbound cap is only 384kbit ... if I get a ton of hits on this site, I'll take it down...

The minute I can get all the details ironed out, about all the tech aspects of this phone, I'll put up a site (on a much higher bandwidth server) and let Cingular and LG know they can go #%$#^ themselves. Surprised)

Oh, btw, I've bought the T720 for my wife, she likes it, doesn't do much WIX on it, but did get a data cable from Ebay and am currently working on xferring stuff to/from that (she has like 800 midis on her system, she's had for a while).
