These are the steps to setup your smartphone to connect to lets say Cingular's WAP network with Dialup networking (DUN). This is also known as tethering. I have the MediaNet unlimited plan and would recommend it for anyone doing this (don’t want a big cell phone bill).
I will use it via Bluetooth on my Windows Server 2k3 SP1 machine (should work on XP SP2 also)
Once you have your Bluetooth modem installed do the steps below
- Open the BT modem from the control panel of the PC (Control Panel -> Phone and Modem Options -> Modems Tab ->Properties button)
- Go to the Advanced tab and add (without quotes, case sensitive) "+CGDCONT=1,"IP","WAP.CINGULAR"
- Save and close that
you can create a new DUN connection
- Phone Number: *99#
- Username: WAP@CINGULARGPRS.COM (this is case sensitive)
- Password: CINGULAR1 (case Sensitive)
I got 115kb/s from my office. Enjoy. This was hacked together from data from a bunch of sites found using my Fav Search engine (will go nameless)
