[I've got it working, now, but hadn't a copy of my old message to reply to :-)]

I couldn't get it working on the first data profile which won't allow
its settings to be changed OR viewed, but advertises itself as
"External ID 1".
Changing the dialup number to *99***3# both created a new, persistent
profile with the APN inherited from the 770 (general.t-mobile.uk)
which works every time and advertises itself as "External ID 3".  I'll
check this evening if changing the default wizard-originated profile
in this one respect /only/ does, indeed, work.  I think it will.

I've verified that having a blank username and password on the 770 and
an *incorrect* password on the phone ("one2on") also permits a
connection. I wonder, therefore, if perhaps the password isn't

I also think this might be K800i-specific.  Could it (alternatively)
have something to do with it implementing bluetooth PAN?

As before, any reports from K800i users would be very welcome!
