6500 Slide - WAP / GPRS Connection

6500 Slide - WAP / GPRS Connection

Hi,

I am after some help, as the 6500 slide is not listed in the support pages?

I am on O2 & have a problem using the pre-installed Opera Mini browser on the phone. I can use the generic browser known as "web" & it connect perfectly, but I like Opera Mini for it's compression capabilities & had it on my N73.

The problem - Opera Mini will not connect to the net, so I removed it from the phone & downloaded it again from the Opera website. Still the same problem:

When I open the program it says "Allow Network to access this application? This application is not from a trusted supplier" So, I select Yes.
An Information box comes up "Web Setting GPRS"
It then starts installing, and during the process the "Allow Network to access...." comes up about 3 or 4 times, so I select yes every time.

When it finally reaches the end of the installation, every time it says "Error" "Failed to connect to the internet, go to Operamini.com/help or contact your service provider with internet settings"

Any help would be appreciated. Just to rectify, I have full 3G service when I am trying this & I can connect via the generic browser..

Re: 6500 Slide - WAP / GPRS Connection

Most likely its trying to connect via WIFI! When you try to connect does it prompt for an access point? It should ask(GPRS, 3G, or WIFI access point defined in your phone)), unless there's one define as default.

Knowledge not shared is knowledge wasted!

If you find it helpfull, it's not hard to click the STAR..

The 6500 slide doesn't have wifi!

I had this problem on O2. You have to delete O2's web settings (the wap and mms settings are ok) and get them resent to the phone.

Use this link and select web or mobile internet settings. If your phone isn't listed then select the 6300 or 7500.

Yes - finally got it working after ring O2 technical support and setting up a personal access point using WEB settings & entering the APN into it, then setting that as default. Sometimes it doesn't connect even with full service, but most of the time it does, don't understand that bit though?

Re: 6500 Slide - WAP / GPRS Connection

I only know the settings for O2 as that's what network I am on:

Start - Settings - Configuration - Default Config. sett. (this needs to be on "O2 WEB". If you don't have that setting you'll have to ask O2 to send it to you.

Activ. def. in all apps. - Make sure you activate the default

Preferred access pt. - this is the important bit, you'll need to set up a new access point up under the personal config. sett. The account name doesn't matter call it what you want, but under the access point settings the data bearer needs to be "Packet Data". Under Bearer settings: Packet data acc. pt = mobile.o2.co.uk / Network type = IPv4 / Authentication = Normal / User name = o2web / password = password. Now the important bit, when you can see the new access point under "Personal accounts" make sure you activate it under options.

You should now be able to use Opera. If you are on other networks, you'll obviously need their settings, so you may have to contact them. Also, these instructions are for the 6500 slide & other phones may have slightly different menus.

Thanks
Matt

Re: 6500 Slide - WAP / GPRS Connection

Hi,
thanks for this. It worked perfectly, although I didn't need to get the "02 WEB" settings. It also works with the "O2 WAP GPRS" settings.

Re: 6500 Slide - WAP / GPRS Connection

markho5, did you ever get this to work? Mine is having the same problems - I hold the zero key down for 3 seconds, and the o2 "Web" app starts up no problem with today's fresh content, so the connection in there.

But opera mini v4, just sails through and fails to connect - never seems to initiate a Grps/edge connection, just 2 seconds of scroll start across the bottom and fail.

I have the same settings as described above ie (I get them from the phone now, o2 UK):

Menu, Settings, Configuration:
Default config. sett:
Personal config
Activ. def. in all apps:
Yes
Preferred access pt.
[empty]
Connect to support:
[Service provider not found. Blah...]
Personal config. sett. {select}

Personal accounts
O2 WEB {select}

Account name:
O2 WEB
Homepage:
http://wap.o2.co.uk
Username:
o2web
Password:
password
Use pref. access pt.
No
Access point settings {select}

Proxy:
Enabled
Proxy address:
193.113.200.195
Proxy port:
8080
Data Bearer:
Packet data
Bearer settings {select}

Packet data acc. pt:
mobile.o2.co.uk
Network type:
IPv4
Authentication type:
Normal
Username:
o2web
Password:
password

Any ideas what is wrong for opera mini v4 not to even attempt to open a G or E connection?

Thanks
Jimbo

Re: 6500 Slide - WAP / GPRS Connection

so sorry, but my English language not very well...


so I will help you all I can:

Menu> Setting> Configuration> Personal config. sett> (option)> Add new> chose (Access point)>

Account name : as u like

Access point settings : go to bearer settings> u well see packet data acc. pt. : your country Access point, I think

 mobile.o2.co.uk...

 

I think too u need to put your user name & password ( your country )
when u doing this settings...  go to Menu> Setting> Configuration> Preferred access pt.> and chose your new Access point

 

 

This method works 100% and tested by me
