There are two basic ways to hook-up your mobile phone for data transference:
1. With a “socket” connection, which is often the name used for a mobile phone internet connection; or
2. Through an HTTP (hypertext transfer protocol), alternately referred to as a WAP (wireless access protocol) or a “portal.”
If you click “My qeep” and look under “Connections,” you will be able to see what kind of connection you are currently using.
Your cheaper, faster and more flexible option is a socket. To establish a socket connection:
Start by clicking the appropriate logo below. You will be directed to a website where you can find out how to connect your phone to the internet. The appropriate link on that website will be labelled “WAP,” “Mobile Web” or “Internet.” From there, you can receive a free SMS detailing the correct settings for your phone. Follow the information on the website to install those settings.
After you have installed the correct settings, please restart qeep on your mobile. Check under “Info” to see if you have established a socket connection. If you still don’t have a socket connection, please confirm that the correct settings have actually been selected in your mobiles’ “Settings” menu. The correct internet settings will usually include your service provider’s name along with “GPRS,” “WAP,” or “Internet.” Any settings including the letters MMS will not work. Where the Settings menu can be found varies from phone to phone. Instructions for the more common menu formats are outlined below:
Most Nokia models:
Try one of the following:
Exit qeep. Go to the main menu and choose “Web” (the globe icon). Scroll down and select “Settings,” then select “Configuration Settings.” Check that the right setting is displayed under “Configuration.” If not, select this item and choose the correct settings as described above.
– or –
Exit qeep. Go to the main menu and choose “Services” (the globe icon). Press “Options,” then scroll down and select “Settings,” Check that the right setting is displayed under “Access point.” If not, select this item and choose the correct settings as described above.
When you’re finished, please restart qeep on your mobile. Check under “Info” to see if you have established a socket connection. If it still doesn’t work, it’s most probably because your provider doesn’t allow socket connections. Please contact your provider; they may be able to help.
Most Sony Ericsson models:
Exit qeep. Go to the main menu of your phone and choose “Settings,” then “Connectivity.” Scroll down and select “Internet Settings,” then select “Internet Profiles” and check that your phone is on the correct settings. If not, select the right settings as described above. For some Sony Ericsson models, you will also need to adjust your Java settings. Please go back to the “Connectivity” tab, scroll down and select “Java Settings.” Adjust the settings to match those used for your internet settings (see above).
Most Motorola models:
Exit qeep. Go to the main menu and choose “Web Access,” then scroll down and select “Web Sessions.” Check that your phone is on the correct settings - they should have a “tick” to the left of the name, meaning that they are set as default.
