Cingular Media works pack and connections

Archived from groups: alt.cellular.cingular (More info?)

Are any outbound ports blocked? Do I get a real IP or a NAT? Are
incoming ports blocked? Thanks to anyone who's looked and can share.

    I've been using the media works package for many days now. It is a NAT
    connection. Cingular issues a Class A RFC-1918 address. From what I can
    tell all GPRS data(at least in my area) uses the public address of
    66.102.167.246. This is the address i used to poke holes in my home
    firewall. As for as ports being blocked? For the most part its wide
    open. I haven't had any problem using http,ftp,ssh, ssl, pop3, smtp and
    a few non standard ports such as 8100. Here is a extra bonus, here in
    the D/FW area Cingular has their EDGE networking up and running. I'm
    seeing speeds between 80 and 90kbps using the Nokia 6230b. The strange
    thing is, according to Cingular's map EDGE its not yet available here
    (see http://www.cingular.com/beyond_voice/wi_availability). Any other
    questions?

    Here is the ip information Cingular assigned my laptop when I connected
    this morning:

    PPP adapter Cingular GPRS:

    Thanks for the info. The only *bad* part for me changing from T-Mobile
    to Cingular is the $200 etf. Will have to use E-Bay to get it back.:)

    Try this, call T-Mobile and tell them you are moving to an area without
    coverage. Sometimes they will overlook termination fee out of kindness.
    Moreover, I think the FCC requires all customers to have a place of
    residence in a coverage area. I hope this helps. Unlike with Cingular
    there are a TONS of small towns without t-mobile coverage. I just moved
    from T-Mobile to Cingular, but I was on month 2 month. I will say the
    move to Cingular was quite cumbersome it took all of 25 mins to port my
    number over. But here is a bit of warning, as soon as you port the
    number T-mobile cancels the account, no and's if's or but's. The moral
    of the story is to talk to them before trying to move or else you will
    get hit with the fee for sure.

    If you need a town without T-Mobile Coverage try Palestine, Texas

    Does anyone know the smtp server for the media works package. I am using
    photo.mycingular.com and it works but "signs" the message with some blub
    about "this photo message... blah,blah..." and I can do without that.

    I have been using my phone (V400) to access the internet and Windows XP
    tells me I am doing so at 125 kbps. Is Windows rounding up, or is this speed
    possible with GPRS? I have had this speed in different locations (Austin,
    Texas and Indiana)

    That is the port speed, not your connection speed.

    That makes sense. So how do I tell what my actual connection speed is?

    Saturday afternoon I spoke with two reps at Cingular and both told me the
    Media Works package would work while tethered to a PC.
    I'll be signing up as soon as I get the Data Connect CD.

    Best way is to run a web based speed test. htpp://www.dslreports.com/tools
    has some. You can use the regular speed tests or mobile phone speed tests.
    The regular speed tests are actually designed for broadband, but can be used
    for slower connections. They start with a small file, and if your speed is
    fast enough use bigger files. This is done so that it doesn't take forever
    on slower connections. There are also lots of other speed tests on the net.
    That is just one I use often.
