The moderators had configured many PDAs for GPRS use, unfortunately we failed with one member who bought a Motorola E398. That we shall rectify today with this short How-To. TQ to Dr Sufian Idris from UKM Bangi for the guide and the screenshots.

A. Bluetooth Pairing.

  • Initially set the phone to be discoverable, then use the PDA to pair with it.
Then set the PDA to be discoverable and pair the phone with it.
This is the result of a successful pairing.
B. Connection
Under System, click on Prefs, then Connection. Click on New.
Configure it as the image on the left;
Then click on details and ensure that it is as the image on the left;This connection can be used for Digi, Maxis & Celcom GPRS.
C. Network
Under System, click on Prefs, then Network. Create a new network as the image on the left if you are a Celcom user.

  • For Digi, the username is “digi”, password is “digi”.
  • For Maxis, the username is “maxis”, password is “wap”.
  • For Celcom, the username is supposed to be left blank but it wont work with PalmOS. So we put in the letter “g”. Leave the password blank. Upon logging in, it will ask for the password. When this happens, just click on “OK”.
Then click on details. Set it up accordingly.

  • For Digi, the DNS numbers are & 203.92.128
  • For Maxis, the DNS numbers are &
  • For Celcom, the DNS numbers are as illustrated on the left.

Once done, click on Script.

Configure it as illustrated on the left. For the third line, change it according to which telco that you are subscribed to;

Digi at+cgdcont=1,”ip”,”diginet”
Maxis at+cgdcont=1,”ip”,”net”
Celcom at+cgdcont=1,”ip”,””

Click “OK” till you’re back at the Network screen.

As usual, try to connect to the Internet via the Motorola E398.
Selamat Mencuba!!!!!!!!!!!
