    Angry EDGE connection on WM5 phone for Inet access...

    Good evening all.

    I've got my SD setup working pretty well at this point, now that I've fine-tuned all the hardware and such (just need a darn FM/AM tuner and I hear ah FMHD might be on the horizon-sweet). One of the remaining issues I've got is that I'm usng Bluetooth to connect to my WM5 phone for internet access. All works relatively well and Virtual Earth gets the images it needs when it needs them, but I'm getting too much notification that the "dialup" is happening. Since DialUp Networking was designed to notify the user of its status, thats whats happening. If the connection drops/fails (which can be frequent on a cellular connection) a stupid dialog box comes up telling me this and I have to acknoledge it before it will move on.

    Does anyone have a recommendation for a dialer/hack that would make this more seamless (backend)? I don't care if it hacks the OS so that it tries like mad to maintain the connection, but I'd like a little more patience in the dialer and more retries when there are issues. In a Bluetooth situation there are 2 points of failure, the cellular connection, and the link between the PC and the phone. I need the system to attempt to recover a little better when an issue occurrs with either connection.

    Any advice is appreciated (relivant, of course).

    Thanks,

    Kris

    Just an idea but there is a shareware program called PTFB (Push the freakin button) that can be setup to automatically click buttons on dialog boxes, and it can be set to do it instantly so you hardly notice the dialog coming up if at all. The site is http://www.ptfbpro.com/index.shtml

    Do a search for balloon in the wireless communication forum. You should find a couple posts on how to disable the notification.

    Yeah, I use a bluetooth connection so you can leave the car freely when needed/ready. However, I might have just solved my own problem. I wasn't aware that 3G can do voice/data simultaneously (not to mention its speed). I just purchased Cingular's new 3G phone and that appears to solve everything. (woo hoo).

    Thanks all.

    It has its good and bad points. First, 3G uses VoIP so even a voice call is a data call. This is what allows the phone to serve as a Wireless AP (not WiFi) to the Cingular network WHILE YOU'RE ON A CALL. Very cool. Downside right now is the software is buggy (could be Cingular's network, but I suspect the phone). Whats going on for me is that if a second call comes in, that second call has bits of "jitter" where I hear the same voice packet repeated occasionally in my ear for like 10 seconds. In other words.... "Hi, how are you doing today?". "Fine how are you, you, you, you, you, you, you, you, you, you, you, you, you?"

    Typically only really see this on a Call Waiting call, but also when the wireless signal is low. Also, the ANSWER softkey occasionally doesn't work, so you have to use the TALK hardkey. I do wish they had left a provission for holding down a key to bring up the record note feature. That button worked great for a Voice Command activation button. I had to use my CommMgr button for VoiceCommand, which doesn't work through the headset (new version of VC). Hitting your headset's buttin does indeed prompt VoiceCommand to respond, but its through the built-in audio on the phone, not the headset. Also, sometimes when you do a data call, afterwards the ActiveSync doesn't work over the air (direct push).

    I'm going to the store today to get a replacement and see if that helps, but I do suspect its an issue with he software build, thus every phone will have it.

    But, in the end, I can live with the quirky stuff because it allows me to talk on the phone and have a data call going at the same time.

    You described almost every issue I have had so far.. I'm also hoping the new ptt firmware fixes some of this stuff...

    Are you using the WModem app for your dataconnect?
