wap.cingular

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

Has the wap.cingular apn been disabled or is it disabled when adding MEdia
Works? I have used it for months unitl a couple weeks after adding Works,
and now it no longer functions. I get a "GPRS parameters incorrect" message.
Upon changing it to the ISP.CINGULAR apn, user name, password, and Ip addy,
everything works like it used to. Just curious in Upstate, SC.

    I have the exact opposite problem I can use wap.cingular but not
    isp.cingular. From what I was told by a support person wap.cingular is
    the AP i should be using, but I still can't help but wonder about
    isp.cingular. Here are the settings I use for wap.cingular. Can you also
    post your settings for isp.cingular? Maybe I have been trying somthing
    wrong in the settings for isp.cingular. BTW I am also on the Media Works
    Package

    Homepage: http://device.home
    Proxies: Enabled

    Authentication Type: Secure

    That is odd. I did figure the wap.cingular apn was the one I was supposed to
    use, but all of a sudden (this monday or before), it quit working, and I can
    only get the ISP.CINGULAR to work. At any rate, here are the settings I use.
    Sorry, but I have no info on "proxy" seetings as my phone has no entry for
    that (T616):

    apn: ISP.Cingular
    IP address: 213.48.20.10
    Authentication type: secure
    user: WIXDC001@W5.MYCINGULAR.COM
    pass: ZXY203DC9K0402

    Basically the same setup as yours on the laptop with the exception of course
    of the user name and password being changed to the above.

    Also of note is that http://device.home does not work using the phone using
    this setup in the phone, so I am not sure if you can access mywirelesswindow
    or not via the phone's wap browser using this apn.
