    I suggest contacting your provider, looking at howard forums or Googling the topic. That's how I got my Treo650 DUN setup.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    As long as you have the drivers installed, you should be able to set up a manual connection through XP and use the phone as the modem. You just need to get the dial up number from your provider and also your username / password for authentication. I work for Telus, this is what I support people with all day, I've set this up before. You should be able to connect the phone via the bluetooth or the USB cable.

    On our network, the dial up number is #777, the username is [email protected] and the password is your electronic serial number (ESN).

    Hey Maheriano,

    I was experimenting with PDANet and my treo 650 on Rogers. Rogers DUN line is *90**# or something like that. It logs me on but I am using the GPRS connection which, in Canada, can be quite expensive given the lack of all you can eat data plans here. Is it instead possible to use voice minutes and dial my ISP provider (Bell)?

    Thanks!

    John

    Ya I'm pretty sure Bell has the same dial up numbers as we do since we roam onto you guys in the east. If you want to be charged by the megabyte the dial up number is #777 and if you want it to come out of your bucket of minutes, the dial up number is #888. Be very careful though, being online for 10 minutes can be expensive if you don't do it right.

    *EDIT - sorry, I misunderstood your question, I have it now. So you want to use Bell's landline dial up service? I believe it is possible though everytime someone calls into work asking how, we say we don't support it. So I don't know.

    Hehe ok thanks for the reply...I can understand why the bosses don't want this to be known. 1 min of voice service is way cheaper than 1MB of data! I still wishlike hell that I could figure out how to get data over the wireless voiceline!

    Cheers,

    John

    So does PDAnet work? I've got a 650 also and would rather connect via PDAnet and save my minutes. I've got the unlimited data plan.
