    Just found the hidden proxy settings in Android. yay

    I am using 2.2 so dont know if it works on older os's

    Browse your apps list and open the voice dialer

    say the word proxy

    and it opens a proxy settings page.

    Post back if it works on other versions.

    cyanogenmod is supposed to be coming out for the GT540....

    So, I'll wait til it does, flash it, and then have a look!

    Works on Dell Streak on 2.2. (Or at least, the settings box does appear as per the instructions. Will have to test to see if it actually has any effect later!)

    Cyanogenmod has had proxy support for ages, at least on Desire.

    oooooh

    Another way is if you have the Gesture Seach app, type proxy and up it pops! - not tested yet though. (Nexus One FRG83D)

    Edit: Although, the one that is currently in seems to be the one specified by the Orange GPRS settings, so maybe won't work for wireless?

    How do you type proxy in the gesture search? I draw P and dont get proxy anywhere, maybe because its a HTC Desire?
