The answer to why GSM/GPRS on D211 with Dell Inspiron 8500 have problems!
I think i've found out why Nokia Support didn't managed to repeat the problem!
Try to let the Dell I 8500 run on batteries for a while!
When the battery level get to low the PCMCIA slot gets less power, and the trouble begins.
The problem doesn't seem to appair when the power is connected.
We have bought identical Dell 8500 with XP home SP1 with BIOS A04 and Texas instrument PCI-4510 Cardbus controller.
We have tested this for 2 weeks against Nokia D211 and have not managed to repeat the problem.
Can you provide any additional information of your PC enviroment and because problem is related
to sim pincode request also info of your operator and type of sim.
