Re: Does the n900 work well with T-mobile Prepaid

Web day passes have been messed up for a while, but if you go directly to m.web2go.com in the browser, and then go to My Account, you should get an option to buy a day pass.

Re: Cannot access T-Mobile internet - Bad Request

I'm also getting this. I use the internet2.voicestream.com APN.

Odd thing is, if I use microb they try to sell me a tethering plan, but if I use Firefox I get the bad request error.

Re: n900 as wiimote whiteboard marker

Actually, that sounds like the normal N900 IR LEDs. They are very weak.

Here's my uptime. I have two IM accounts running, using wifi with occasional (about 2-3 times a month) 3.5G data use. I have my pop3 email checked every half hour. I also have a few apps from...

Re: Does the n900 work well with T-mobile Prepaid

Yesterday they started offering some plans for prepaid plans. I'm using the $1.50 unlimited day pass plan. I can access pretty much anything, even stuff that didn't work with the Sidekick plan, like...

Re: Now that I have an N900 I need to find a use for the N810.

I put easy debian on mine and use it as a low-power SSH tunnel and proxy server so I can make use of the T-Mobile prepaid Sidekick plan and access my desktop from my N900.

Re: VNC through SSH on the N900

AFAIK they don't make any native SSH servers for windows. You'll either have to use a Linux compatibility layer like Cygwin, or just put Linux on a spate computer and run the tunnel off of that. Keep...

Re: Bluetooth Keyboard for N810?

Whatever keyboard you get, make sure that it uses the Bluetooth HID profile, and not some other weird protocol. HID is supported out of the box with the N810 without problems, but the same isn't true...

I bought one a few months ago. They airmail the things directly from Hong Kong, so yeah, it's very slow. It took a good 3 weeks from the date I ordered it to receive it.

Install the package called "Pidgin protocols plugin for Conversations and Contacts" from extras. That'll let you use Yahoo with conversations.

Re: Cincinnati Bell?

It should just work if you put your SIM card in it. Whether or not you get 3G depends on the frequencies your carrier uses. The N900 uses the 1700/2100 MHz band.

At the very least, you should be...
