Angry 8100 GPRS Modem use requires Policy Permisson YES/NO ?

Please Login to Remove!

I have a 8100 which has a data plan (tcp/ip internet only, no BB, no BES). The data plan works great with Bolt, jmirc and many other apps.

I was never able to make the GPRS modem tethering work however. The dialing script works (and I even tried by hand connecting with the GPRS modem rfcomm device and issuing AT commands). After dialing, there is no CONNECT message, nothing, and the GPRS modem interface application just hangs like that. I do not remember if I get a NO CARRIER message or not, in any case, the other end is "dead".

I found this message : #post463761 (can't post url's I'm too new here)

Which implies that using the built in GPRS modem requires policy enabling from the provider. Besides the unprintable profanity I'd like to post here but won't, can someone confirm this one more time:

Is a Policy setting at the wireless (attention: wireless, not BES etc) provider's necessary to allow GPRS modem use in the 8100 when its APN based internet service is provisioned and already working? Yes/No?

It is my understanding that the person mentioned in the link above enabled this in the BES he is an admin of. Does GPRS modem thethering access require a BES or just a Policy setting?

Remember I have NO BES and never will have one. My provider is Vodafone and I am in Europe.
