How to configure data service on HTC Tilt 2?

I am visiting Ireland and have an O2 pre-paid SIM in my AT&T HTC Tilt 2 Windows Mobile 6.5 smartphone.  I would like to have Internet access as well.  I spoke with an O2 rep yesterday who told me that in order to purchase a block of data service, text NET to 50231 for 700MB for 9.99 for 30 days, then switch phone off/on.  I have done this.  The rep also said she would text me the data network config, however I never received the config.  How do I config my Tilt 2 to use the O2 data network?

 

Thanks,

Darin

Re: How to configure data service on HTC Tilt 2?

These are the settings for the Windows mobile they are generic so we can't guarantee will work and we do not support

This is a Windows Mobile 6 device

Use GPRS/(or EDGE, if available) to connect to the Internet and to send and receive email on your phone.
Your phone automatically sets up the data connection based on your SIM card when you turn on the phone for the first time.

Do not change the connection settings as this may cause services to stop working.

However - if for any reason you do need to add another GPRS/3G connection on your phone, see the settings below.

1. On the Home screen, slide to the Settings tab and then tap Wireless controls.
2. On the Comm Manager screen, tap Data connection.
3. Select O2 Ireland, then tap OK.
Note If you choose a country and/or operator that is different from the installed SIM card network operator, you may not be able to access network services.
4. When prompted to confirm whether you want to configure the data connection settings, tap Yes.
5. After Connection Setup completes the configuration, tap Done.

Specific O2 server address details if required

DNS: 62.40.32.33
Alt DNS: 62.40.32.34

Re: How to configure data service on HTC Tilt 2?

Thank you for the reply.

 

My phone did not automatically set up the data connection when I turned on the phone for the first time.  So, I've been searching for the appropriate settings to manually configure the data connection.  I found this posting:

 

http://community.o2online.ie/t5/Android/Nexus-One-Android-APN-Settings/td-p/131907

 

Based on the above, I created a connection with the following parameters:

 

Select a modem: Cellular Line (GPRS, 3G)

Access point name: internet

User name: <blank>

Password: <blank>

Domain: <blank>

 

However, when I start Internet Explorer and attempt to access www.google.com, I get the message "Sorry - HTTP request was interrupted by the host!" and the URL listed in the address bar is http://cpv.trust5.com/ms/o2m/site/xhtml/datastatus.aspx.

 

Can you confirm what are the correct settings for the data connection?

 

The posting above also refers to a link which is supposed to be a utility by which a subscriber can request to have the data connection settings sent to his/her phone, however, I get "java.io.IOException" when I attempt to access the referenced link.

 

When I spoke with the O2 representative yesterday, she said she would send the data connection settings to my phone via text message, however, I never received them.  Is there a way to have the correct data connection settings sent directly to my phone?

 

Thank you for your assistance.

Darin

You are on prepay so can you change the APN to pp.internet and try again. Also for testing can you navigate to the address http://m.o2.ie

Re: How to configure data service on HTC Tilt 2?

Thank you, again, for the reply.

 

I changed the APN to pp.internet, however when I tried to access http://m.o2.ie/ I got the same error message "HTTP request was interrupted by the host!".  This time, the URL in the address line was still http://m.o2.ie/.

 

I noticed that this appears to be an open issue based on:

 

http://community.o2online.ie/t5/HTC/Sorry-HTTP-request-was-interrupted-by-the-host/td-p/201766

 

Is there any update on the ticket (reference: 1264518) mentioned in the above thread?

 

I was able to confirm that the network connection is working by (1) running the Google Maps application and viewing a location I've never seen before and (2) retrieving my email once (however, I've received several connection failures after successfully retrieving my email).

 

Thank you.

Do you have any proxy details filled into the settings section?
