    Hey BC487,

    Well I limited mine to 1x not because it wouldn't connect on EVDO - actually it did - but because I had heard people were pushing their luck connecting that way. In other words, Verizon was watching.

    I think the key for you is the same it was for me; unblocking DUN capability on the phone itself. Now I don't know much about the Razrs - I'm still using my old LG - but in my case all I had to do was use the "administrator" password for my model (found on HowardForums) to access the root menu on the phone and undo what Verizon had done, i.e. unlock dialup networking.

    I did a quick Google search and it looks like it may be a bit more convoluted for you. Check this link out and see if it helps (HowardForums again):

    http://www.howardforums.com/showthread.php?t=1018585

    It seems like you'll need something called QPST, a Qualcomm utility for accessing the hidden configuration menus. There's an indication someone has it up on RapidShare, and I also found a "Hack the Razr" site ("it's your phone ... make it so"), which looks like it has the utility for download. The link for that:

    http://hacktherazr.com/downloads.html

    I'm still connecting tethered, so it's still possible ... The only recurring problem I have is that when I'm connected to my own wireless router at home, every time a page is a little slow in loading the laptop throws up the DUN connection window and I have to cancel it out. Minor price to pay I think when I can have Google Maps up & running in the passenger seat while I'm heading cross country in the Triumph!

    Hope it helps. Good luck!

    What you showed me did help a bit. I can now connect with my phone tethered, which is great. Now I just want to figure out how to keep it from defaulting to 1x. I don't want to get slammed with a huge bill.

    Try this one:

    http://www.barnharts.net/bn/krzrk1m.asp

    Again, be really careful if you decide to attempt this stuff - messing up in the root configuration can render the phone useless.

    These guys are interested in disabling EVDO because the phone constantly looking for it apparently drains the battery really quickly on the Razrs. But the result should be the same; the phone should stay on the 1x network even where EVDO is available.

    I should also mention that I think vCast requires EVDO, so if you use that stuff, you may be losing your access to it. That's no big deal to me, but I guess it might be to some.

    Final thought: As I said, I did subscribe to the "MobileWeb" service @ $5 per month. I don't know if it's necessary to connect, but it gives me an excuse for having data minutes show up if Verizon ever does check the details of my usage. It was my understanding - at the time, at least - that they couldn't tell the difference between MobileWeb and DUN use.

    Verizon For Internet

    BLUTO....is the program you use called qualcomm? Just want to make sure I downloaded the correct software. Would you be able to give me some assistance in setting up the program? If I downloaded the correct software, I have no clue where to even begin with it. I installed the setup files....and I now have the following options....

    Display Caputure
    Dmproxywin
    efs explorer
    factory test mode application.
    gang flash image application
    QCNView
    qpst configuration.


    and well there are a couple of others...but if I have the correct program then you already know the rest of what im looking at. Now I dunno exactly what kind of instructions you have but from what I downloaded there certainly are not any type of details instructions on how to use my verizon cell phone to get my laptop online. Please help. thanks!

    I used this "how to"to unblock the DUN on my vx8300:

    http://www.howardforums.com/showthre...7&page=1&pp=15

    And now I can get online with no problems. They are good step by step instructions. I had to use QPST_2.7 build 215. I tried an earlier version and it didn't work. All in all it works pretty good. A little slow, but good enough to check email when on the road and get weather updates.

    Setting up VZACCESS manager

    Thanks for that info for editing the information on my cell phone. It was easy to follow and it appears to have worked. Now, could you please tell me exactly how the vzaccess manager must be configured for me to get online? Thanks!

    You don't need the vzaccess manager. There's a bunch of info on how to do it in this thread. Here's the skinny:

    -set up your internet connection to dial #777
    username:##########@vzw3g.com (replace # with your phone number)
    Password:vzw

    Thats it, enjoy! I recomend reading up on defaulting to 1x and usage, as verizon could hit you with a monster bill or disable your service.

    That's right. Now the screen has been updated to offer a way to buy a data plan! My free internet settup with my Razr V3m used to work perfectly, and now this is what I get, so i can only assume that Verizon finally shut the back door to this feature.
