Connecting Sony Clie to Orange UK GPRS

I doubt anyone much is interested in this who just happens on it. If Google didn’t send you here, you’ll probably be bored to death if you continue much further – be warned. If you’re trying to work out why Sony’s CoMa (Connect Manager) doesn’t give you a GPRS connection on Orange, here in the UK, though, do read on.

I’ve just spent most of a day trying to get my shiny new Sony Clie to connect to Orange GPRS, and it’s been very tricky. I’ve ended up using bits of info from various sites together, so i thought i’d document what i ended up with here in the hope that it helps someone…
