    The GPRS CID string (a.k.a. Telephone number) i use with my T68i on T-Mobile is *99***3# perhaps adding the ***3 will help?

    service provider should know

    You service provider should be able to tell you what the proper settings should be. I had to set a weird init string (at+cgdcont=1,"ip","internet3.voicestream.com") and use "a" as the username and password when I connecting from my Visor though the IR port to a T-Mobile phone.
