Nokia E61 Internet access with Cingular
I shall appreciate your pertinent comments concerning the Nokia E61 internet access. I am in the final stages of ordering unlocked E61, however, was advised by my Cingular business rep that even with unlocked version I wouldn't be able to access the internet on E61, since Cingular system would recognize IMEI # along with make and model of the phone and would block any internet traffic. Can you please advise whether it is true, as it is very important for me to access the internet on the device.
I have an unlocked version of this phone and have tried to use cingulars Internet service and I am not able to, however cingular will be coming out with a watered down version of this phone soon, which means that when they come out with it you should be able to download the software for the cingular version of the phone onto your unlocked phone and be able to use cingulars Internet access. as for all the other features I have had no problem, the Internet and the push to talk feature are the only two features that I am unable to use on this phone, the wireless Internet on the phone is amazing though!
The E61 should work fine on Cingular's network. You can configure it over the air using:
thanks for any suggestions
I can connect to a wifi access point if I remove the SIM card, scan for a WAN and set it up as an access point - but as soon as I put the SIM back in, it ignores the access point and tries to connect through a MediaNet dialled connection. I suppose this means Cingular are doing some sorcery in the SIM card.
This method is a partial solution, but it's a bit of a pain to keep switching the SIM in and out - would appreciate any other solutions
