Connecting the Pocket PC 2002 to GPRS is pretty easy if you know how to do it. This is a general step-by-step which works for all Pocket PC 2002 devices, GPRS enabled GSM phones, connection types between the Mobile Phone and Pocket PC 2002 and for all GSM/GPRS carriers world wide.
Configuring the Connection between the Pocket PC 2002 and Cell Phone
If you want to use an infrared based IrDA connection between your Pocket PC and mobile phone, you don't need to configure anything before you setup the connection. Same if you will use a dedicated cable between your Pocket PC and GSM terminal. However, if you want to use a Bluetooth connection, please make sure that your devices are bonded/paired. This might be different from Bluetooth CF card/Pocket PC to mobile phone. Please check first the manual of your device/card.
However, if you have bonded/paired both devices, it should looks similar to this example below:
Creating a new GPRS connectionÂ
Before you can dial into the GPRS network of your cellular operator, you have to setup the Pocket PC 2002 to dial the proper connection.
Dialing a GPRS Connection
If you have everything configures, make sure that your devices are connected (if you use a cable) and ready to go (align the infrared port of your Pocket PC 2002 to the infrared port of your cell phone or make sure that Bluetooth is switched on on both devices).
A connection can be dialed in different ways and the Connection Manager will try to take care. E.g. if you open a URL from your Pocket Internet Explorer which requires a connection, the GPRS connection should be dialed automatically; same if you synchronize your POP3/IMAP4 E-Mail account or if you login to MSN Messenger.
However, you can also force the Connection Manager to dial manually by tapping [Connect]:
If your connection was successful you a notification bubble will appear.
To disconnect simply open the notification bubble again by tapping the two arrows on the Task Bar and tap End.
That's it, you are ready to enjoy the true wireless Internet through GPRS now - wherever you are and wherever you go!
