I’m trying to get the Gmail mobile app to work on my BenQ-Siemens EF81. I have a Fido account with a GPRS plan.
I can get to the web using the built-in browser by setting up a “Connectivity Profile” that points to wap.fido.ca, and creating a “Internet Profile” that specifies a proxy address of 172.25.0.107 (from here). However, gmail doesn’t work then (gets stuck on “Loading…”).
I’m thinking it’s because I should be using a direct GPRS connection instead of WAP (whatever that means in practice), as Google suggests.
Any idea how to do so?
I hate technology that makes me feel stupid, and this phone UI, combined with the acronym soup that is telecom, makes me feel stupid.
