    Thanks!
    Since my phone card is currently on loan, I just finished setting things up for my PPC6600. Works a treat. I keep it holstered and the bluetooth makes the connection, dials the phone, and Winamp connects to streaming audio, buffers and plays. Its not as difficult as I thought. Much easier than trying to connect PhoCo to a Sprint phone. And I never have to touch the phone at all.

    Step by step (sorta, at least as much as I can remember):
    1. Enable DUN Server on phone's bluetooth settings.
    2. Pair devices.
    3. Create DUN connection on PC for bluetooth to phone.(#777, no username , no password)
    4. Set bluetooth DUN connection as default Dialup Connection.

    Whenever, computer needs internet it checks for WiFi, then AirCard, then initiates bluetooth DUN connection over bluetooth. The only problem I have right now is sometimes it connects automatically and sometimes it pops up the dial-up window awaiting user confirmation which half the time gets hidden by RR. Still trying to figure that out. Best bet for me now is to check weather first which always auto-connects and just leave the connection live.

    I'm concerned that this will autoconnect one day on a long road trip and drain the phones battery. Ordered a backup sync cable yesterday, just in case. I know bluetooth is convenient, but for roadtrips, it would probably be better to connect phone to USB which provides data link and charges phone.

    Got verizon but considering 2nd phone for internet if sprint is 100% all the time (verizon uses minutes under modem call). What's up with this line from the website:?
    "Unless a Sprint PCS Vision Pack is selected, customers with a Sprint PCS Vision Phone will be charged 2¢ per kilobyte for Sprint PCS Vision usage."
    This depends a lot on whether the phone has the ability to connect to a PC, if so, as long as you don't abuse it , they'll let you cause they really can't tell. But if your tranfer rate gets too high they'll call you. If they really want to get ugly they could just bill you (happened to me twice, I just called customer service and kept asking for supervisors till they took it off my bill)

    That's their way of notifying users that data will cost you more than the visions pack. For the last few years, internet ready Sprint phones weren't charged per kB (just minutes and if you waited for night and weekend, voila) and many of us abused the service. Now they want to close the loophole. I have heard as recently as Nov that it still works, but don't hold me to that.

    The only place on my computer I can setup the phone connection on windows 2000 after downloading the drivers is under the "network and dial-up connection". So when I connect the phone dials the #777. Is that still considered a modem or a network connection. And I'm unsure where to type in the "ping" command. It disconnects every 5 seconds and then re-dials.

    Im in the same boat. connects for a second or two, then disconnects because of bad username and password.

    You guys turned your NAI off yet? Haven't gone through this entire thread but if you have the A900 then do this.

    1. Settings
    2. Display
    3. Press zero
    4. Type in 040793
    5. Go down to Toggle NAI and turn it off

    You should now be able to log on no problems.
