For some other manufacturers, we will show you a website where you can find the settings you need to enter.
I need instructions on how to install GPRS settings on my phone manually
Note: The following link is to a page provided by a company offering satellite navigation services and provides excellent instructions for enabling GPRS on many different mobile phones.

Please click here (external link, not part of FishText) and select your phone from the list. Once you have selected your mobile manufacturer and model a page will be displayed with a 2 step process for enabling GPRS. Please ignore step 2 as this is irrelevant for FishText users.
How do I set up GPRS on my Samsung D900 using Vodafone UK?
The example given is for Vodafone UK, where the default "wap" profile must be changed to the "internet" profile in order to use FishText.

Go to the main menu and click "Settings", then select the settings you wish to change. If you have no settings, get them from http://www.fishtext.com/GPRS.

In this example the settings to be changed are "vodafone wap".

First change the profile settings:
PROFILE NAME: (This can be anything you want)
HOME URL: http://live.vodafone.com
BEARER: gprs only
PROXY: enable

Next, open "GPRS Settings". Leave the proxy IP and port alone, and edit the following to use the Vodafone UK "internet" access point.
APN: internet
LOGIN ID: web
PASSWORD: web

Save this and select it as your current profile.
FishText will not install on my Samsung E900
Transfer both the FishText.jad and FishText.jar files to your handset.
Type *#9998*5282#, go to Java-Midlet and enter password 235282.
Select FishText.jad and select Yes when prompted to install. FishText has been installed to the My Games area.
FishText will not reopen on Nokia NSeries, S60
Due to a fault in the implementation of Java on these handsets, you may need to restart your handset in order to reopen FishText after it has been closed.
Data connection remains active after FishText has quit on Nokia NSeries, S60
Due to a fault in the implementation of Java on these handsets, the data connection may remain active even after FishText has quit. Push and hold the Hang Up key and quit the data connection when prompted.
The first letter is not a capital when writing a new message on Nokia NSeries, S60
Due to a fault in the implementation of Java on these handsets, the first letter you type in a new message may not be a capital. Pushing the left key will usually correct this, while still leaving you at the start of the message area. Alternatively, type a letter and then delete it.
I cannot change "Check incoming" and "Inbox size" on my Blackberry
Blackberry's, or at least the models we have encountered, do not support slider controls in Java. You can work around this in the FishText mobile application by entering some special codes.

To change the "Check incoming" setting, compose a new text message in FishText with recipient number 72633 and send it. On the screen that appears, enter 1 14 3 and submit that code. This will change the "Check incoming" setting to check for new messages or delivery reports every 2 minutes. Changing the last number from 3 to 1 will check every 30 seconds, 2 will check every 1 minute and higher values will check less frequently. You can turn "Check incoming" off again by replacing the 3 with a 0.

To change the "Inbox size", do as above but when prompted enter 1 18 1 and submit the code. Increase the last number (1) to increase your Inbox size.
I cannot find FishText on my Samsung D900i after installation
FishText is stored in the "My Applications - Java World" folder on your Samsung mobile phone.
