Setting up the Nokia N97 with T-Mobile T-Zones

Here’s how I set it up on my N97. You can define all the Access Points by going to Settings->Connectivity->Destinations

For the “Internet” AP, I set up 2 access points. I set my home WiFi as the one having priority 1 and TZones as priority 2

Then for settings:

Connection name: T-Zones
Data bearer: Packet data
Access point name:
(I can’t get to work for some reason)
User name: None
Prompt password: no
Password: none
Authentication: Normal
Homepage: None
Use access point: Automatically

Then for Advanced Settings:
Network type: IPv4
Phone IP address: Automatic
DNS addresses: Automatic
Proxy server address:
Proxy port number: 8080

This way when I’m home, the widgets and apps go through my WiFi connection, then when I leave the house it uses T-Zones Edge to connect.

    I followed your instruction above on how to set-up T-Zones settings on Nokia N97 but for some reason, the webpage shows that I have to upgrade my web services to $25.00 per month. I am currently paying $10.00

    Hmm..maybe you just happen to be in a T-Mobile WiFi Hotspot and your phone is using the Hotspot to connect instead of the $10 data plan. Other than I don’t know.
