    What type of phone are you using?

    Otherwise the Verizon Dialer utility works well, more information found here: http://www.verizonwireless.com/b2c/m...cess/index.jsp

    Future Dial software is NOT needed to connect to the internet! Don't waste your money.

    Also look for a cable that will charge your phone and dial to the internet at the same time, this way you phone will stay charged off of the USB port (example here).

    Speed issues

    I've successfully set up a Samsung SCH-A670 for access on a PowerBook under OS 10.3

    However, my connection speeds seem low--or at least, I think so. One bandwidth tester clocks me around 77 kilobits per second--that's kiloBITS, kps, not kilobytes, Kps, so not quite 10 Kilobytes/sec. I'm connecting using #777.

    Any tips? Phone reconfiguration?

    Vanderdecker - That's what you'll get. You're using a Non-EVDO phone, so you can only utilize Quick2Net, which is a 14.4kbps connection. If you want faster you need to get an EVDO phone and be in an EVDO service area.

    I thought 1xRTT was good for much faster than that:

    You might not have it configured to use the faster 'NationalAccess' connection. You may only be connecting to the Quick2Net setup, which IS limited to 14.4k.

    What are your connection settings, including user/password? (Go ahead and omit your phone number for that, just put #'s)

    Edit: Sorry, you're right, it can do faster, I forgot that 1x phones can still use NationalAccess (which I did on my LG before I got my E815)

    The usual: 1x showing on the phone's display.
    Dialup settings:
    account name: ##########@vzw3g.com
    pw: vzw
    tel#: #777

    testing at bandwithdplace.com, though other test sites have echoed the results.

    Hm..yeah..that's the same settings I used, but I got around 100kbps. (Pre-evdo phone) Maybe the infrastructure in your area is 'older'? Don't know. My wife has a 670, but we never tried doing data dial-up. If I can find her data cable I guess I can give it a shot and see what I get.

    I had been wondering if there was some setting in the phone itself that might need fiddling.

    I just got it to work via bluetooth on my e815. I went through the bluetooth setup wizard. I set up a dial up with th #777 number and ##########@vzw3g.com for the username and vzw for the password. got 115 kps slow but cool. My buddies at our weekly car meet shat themselves.

    That's cool selmerguy, but if you really want them to have a good 'shat' and you're in an EVDO market get the $15/mo VCAST package. I get in the 700+ kbps range in the Boston area. This thing smokes. I can't believe cell phones are nearly as fast as DSL was not too long ago.
