    do you switch by priority (which connection is faster)? If so i think i could make a manager program that would automatically connect to the best available service. It would probably help me too. I'm getting my boost phone today and will need something to manage that, my verizon phone, and my wifi.

    Well, a little of each? Idealy it would keep them all connected, but sometimes I don't have DUN comming off of my sprint phone, sometimes I am not parked at home. So assuming that I have a EVDO connection, said software should release tcp/ip from boost mobile, for example.

    I would also need to have a button to say "connect to whatever", but I suppose that is easy because you can make shortcuts to a connection in windows. Now that I mention it, I bet you could give the shortcut the disconnect command via some windows shell run program api.

    Can you release/renew your ip from a dial up connection?

    Works for me....

    What you want is to google "Carrier R01.16.19" see if you can find another copy.

    I just got that copy from a friend..

    Peace,

    When I say the site is "down", what I'm saying is that its internal links seem to all be broken. Either way, thanks for the tip.

    So far, I've made good progress and come across reason to think that most of the i450s sold via Boost are already WiDEN-enabled (according mostly to info over on the Howard forums). I'll keep looking into it.

    Meanwhile, I've gotten far enough that I'm actually posting this message from my carputer through my i450, so that's progress (we're not actually in the car at the moment, though). Cool!

    My speeds so far:
    dslreports.com speed test result on 2006-07-18 17:32:52 EST:
    33 / 38
    Your download speed : 33 kbps or 4.2 KB/sec.

    Your upload speed : 38 kbps or 4.7 KB/sec.

    and

    dslreports.com speed test result on 2006-07-18 13:27:27 EST:
    16 / 26
    Your download speed : 16 kbps or 2 KB/sec.

    Your upload speed : 26 kbps or 3.3 KB/sec.

    Decent enough to do basic stuff with, and I only have 3 bars. We'll see...

    I didn't read the last page or so, but i didn't see it before when reading this thread. For a little extra cash you can use accutracking http://support.accutracking.com/docs/boostsetup.html To track your phones location. Works with boost i450 phone. It is like $8 a month on top of the $6 you pay for boost. But you get online tracking of your phone in real time .

    So what im also saying on the side is that if they have software that uses GPS and Internet Then there must be a way for us to do the same thing.
    That way we would only need the phone for internet and GPS! I've never done any programming for phones so im not sure how easy it would be to create an app that would allow us to use both at the same time. Since the phone probably only has one serial line on it. you would only be able to use one option at a time. If only it also had bluetooth enabled

    Oh well just a thought.
    Um, I guess this is where you put something witty.WITTY

    Ok here goes a tip for those who want t; know if the phone is widen anable... (steps for i450):


    Push this set of buttons as fast as you can:

    #*menu (the one with the little page right on top of the green call button) and right arrow (one of the four arrows that are around ok) then you going to be on trace mode after that go down until you see "err/channel" click ok then selet "on".... then get out of there with red hang button, after that go to "menu" select "web" and do a search, if you see "WPCH" and a set of numbers (like WPCH 5:5:6:0 *this change every x/secs) at the top right corner of the screen (where the signal icon is) you have widen anable. in the other hand if you just see the PCH you're screw then you need the CP which is like accessing to the bios in a computer (really easy)

    BTW like I said before I got mine from BB and it was Widen anable out of the box (at least after reading and reading about the subject and finding out how easily is to know without codeplugs or calling CS) but still I'm just geting speds of 2.5/ 2.5 KB/sec in my area so I think I will get something faster.

    Thanatos.
