    Anyone using this with a ppc 6600? It has EVDO capability. Does that need to be/can that be disabled to use the minutes only ability? It seems like some ppl are saying Verizon changed it so that you definetly can't do this anymore but then others say it is still working.

    If I attempt this I would like to make sure that I am not being charged per kilobyte. However, my bill is sent to another address. How can I check to see if I am being charged data rates without the bill?

    Thanks

    FYI, just got a SCH-a930. If you want to use Bluetooth instead of the USB cable to get internet on your PC, here's what you do:

    1. Go to MENU
    2. Select SETTINGS & TOOLS
    3. Press #
    4. Enter all zeros for the password
    5. Press 4 to select Port Map
    6. Press 1 to select DS (DATA)
    7. Press 3 to select BLUETOOTH

    You should now be able to use your phone as a bluetooth modem. When I paired my a930 to my Mac using the bluetooth system preferences panel, at first it told me there were no services for me to configure. After I turned this on I was able to configure it as a modem.

    If you want to switch back to using the USB cable, just go back to the menu above and press 2 to select USB.

    Search howardforums for locking 1x data. It'll disable EVDO and just use minutes.

    Got my cable today, connected it to my vx3200 and.... NOTHING . My lap top doesn't even recognize the device I jammed into it's USB port. No promp no "bluup" nothing. How depressing. Maybe that's what I get for buying the $5.00 cable off eBay .

    You probably need to go under your hardware settings and ask the computer to search for any new devices. Also, you'll have to download drivers for your phone in order for your computer to recognize it as a modem.

Charges end when disconnected from system, which may be a few seconds after you press "END" or "DISCONNECT" button. Calls to certain fax/data modems incur charges, though it may sound as if call was unanswered. Charges apply on calls to toll-free numbers. NationalAccess data session automatically terminates after 5 minutes of inactivity, NationalAccess data session automatically terminates after 24 hours of activity.

NationalAccess data session may automatically reinitiate without you pressing or clicking "SEND" or "Connect" button if you have not terminated your session by pressing or clicking "END" or "Disconnect" button.

    I have verizon and a motorola q. This worked as of 12/20/06 but a few day later it does not work anymore. I get an error saying that my password and username are not authorized - Incorrect login information. I have checked this a hundred times to make sure it is correct and it is. I dropped wireless sync a while ago, would that have anything to do with it. Is wireless sync required for this or is verizon blocking this out and making you get a data plan. I also never had a data plan, I had the pay per KB but it worked fine before.

    Any information is helpful, thank you

    Question Moto phones?

    Anyone have any experience trying the Motorola V3 Razor?
    Or the V325?

    I'm using a Samsung A-670 now with pretty good speed much of the time,
    but it frequently will disconnect. Sometimes it will drop tehe speed to almost nothing, but that may be due to limitted bandwidth in our rural area.
    But, it is time for a new phone and I'm wondering if these are going to be in the running.
