    Arrow CDMA Phones

    Well, I tried to use my CDMA phone (Samsung A600, VGA1000, A620) to no avail. All I got was the "failed to open port" on my USB connection COM3. Oh well, hopefully in the future!!

    The sad part is I am stuck on this contract for 1.5 years. And even if I did switch, I would miss the speed of the Sprint Vision internet connection. It is supposedly faster than the GSM networks.

    Have you ever used it as a modem before, or do you need help setting it up?

    No I haven't. I just didn't know where to start since my phone is technically not supported. Do you have a PCS phone?

    yes

    You need to download the drivers for your phone model, and windows should detect it as a modem. Then setup a standard dial up connection to the number #777 with not username and password.


    That should get you online, just remember to set the modem port speed to 115k or 230k.

    I do not know, as I have not played with it and I know that phone model is not on the compatibility list. Have you tried using it in hyper terminal with the AT commands?

    No, I'm not much of a programmer so I don't understand that stuff. I'm on the hardware side of things.

    Someone named Bryan posted in the super long thread that he got it to work with his CDMA phone, but he hasn't posted how.

    Basically you need to setup you phone to the proper COM port in the settings box, and that should do it. I would recommend getting someone local who is familiar with setting up and admin on windows to help you.

    CDMA phones

    Sorry for the delay in answering you DDOGG777. My phone is an LG VX4500. You might want to try adding the lines into your config file that Zorro listed in his replies to me. I still need to test a few things further, and have just been especially busy over the last week (sorry Zorro I'll be testing it soon...). Currently, you might be able to get the phone to dial right now, and possibly hangup from your touchscreen commands. Additionally, your phonebook entries can be imported into PhoneControl.

    It's important to mention that I am NOT sure whether or not your specific phone is based on the same OS as mine, but I seem to think that most CDMA phones are - from what I've been reading. You might also take a little bit of time to see if you can find out some of "hack" info for you phone. I had to search rather exhaustively before I was able to find a site that explained how to get my phone to dial from the computer.

    I'm sure that as soon as I can get some more testing in, I'll be able to help you out more with a step-by-step procedure. Good luck!!

    Bryan
