i found some facts by experimentingits better to use the settings which idea sends by the sms - OTAuse idea_gprs as main connection.. speed is better then idea_internetuse idea_internet only on Email & GPS as they require sslIf any one can contribute more is welcome !!

You need to send the message - SET to some number. Call 12345, the ivr will guide you. Else call cc and ask them to send the settings to you.
