Howto: configure a Psion Series 5 for internet access with a Nokia 6610 (GPRS)
This took ages to figure out, and plenty of experimenting with different settings, so hopefully this might save someone else the hastle of having to spend half a day to get their Psion 5 (not MX) connected to the net with a Nokia 6610. I would say it would work with similar settings on other GPRS phones.
The internet settings are for the O2 network in Ireland and will need adjustments for a different network.
