View Full Version : Trying to use Palringo IM on W960i

03-03-2008, 08:18 PM

I have finally managed to get a version which is compatable with W960i but when I login it passes the login info ok but then tries to connect to Palringo, fails and keeps retrying.

Pal TS can only offer this:

You should not have to change the default settings but may have to add an access point to the list of preconfigured ones. Here on Vodafone in the UK most phones come with a few access points named something like Vodafone Internet GPRS, Vodafone live!, etc.. Palringo will only connect using the Vodafone Internet GPRS as this connection does not use proxies which block certain types of traffic. If you have several different connections available already try using these with Palringo. If there arenít any already available then Vodafone can usually send you the additional configuration over the air if you contact them.

Just wasted 20 mins waiting to talk to Vodafone Connections team - anyone know how I can complain to this bunch of useless idiots???

More importantly, can someone walk me thru setting up the correct access point using no proxies???

thanks very much
