Ok, so I have done all the steps with no hiccups several times now...
The internet connect app goes through connecting to PPP, authenticating user, followed immediately by disconnecting, then gives me the error that it couldnt establish a connection with the PPP server.
Not sure what this means... I do only have a GPRS signal in the house instead of EDGE, does that make a difference?
