I need help from someone that has made this work on a 7520. It is hit and miss as to decting the modem, any advice on getting that to be stable? Also, when I can detect the modem it times out and I get an error message. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Note: I am on Nextel with the unlimited BB plan. Is there something else I need to add to my plan?

Thanks in adv.
Kelly.

I should warn that nobody has ever reported 7520 working successfully as a modem for laptop -- yet. The feature is there, but nobody has gotten it to successfully work yet on the 7520.

Called Roger's and had the APN added. (Hard-reset the BlackBerry afterwards). Still no luck--same error message.

Try entering a username/password when you connect:

APN: internet.com
Username: wapuser1
Password: wap

If this still fails, try following the instructions for the "Error 718" in my second post of this thread, and seeing if that resolves the problem.

Is anyone (still) trying to create a BBModem application for the 7750? To me, it just seems silly that this "can't be done".

Still no go. Is this working for any Roger's customers right now?

Default Modem still works on 4.0?

I read something about the modem not working in 4.0. Has anyone else had this problem? I got it to work a couple months ago with 3.8, but now I cannot even do a "Query Modem" - it says the modem does not respond. I tried reinstalling 3.8 on the desktop, but not on the phone (yet).

I have a 7100t on T-Mobile in the SF Bay Area.

Thanks.

Default Nextel 7520 Progress

I too can connect and pass AT commands sometimes but I get Error 692 almost right away. When I ATDT some kind of data session starts, but apparently it's not correct for PPP to start negiotiating. Any thoughts?

Default 7250 as a modem

I am trying to setup my 7250 as a modem. when I try to Verify The Modem Driver Is Functioning I know it is using com11 but I get an error message that that port is in use? sorry I am not that computer literate but would like to try to get it to work. Whats the best way to correct this without messing up my computer settings?

Default this thread should probably be updated

as of the TMO ports reopening, I am able to once again use my 7100t as a modem... the original instructions suffice (original TMO modem initialization string, automatically obtain DNS servers, no user or pass, dial *99#)

bugmenot,
Are you using wap.voicestream.com or internet2.voicestream.com in the initialization string?

intradev,
I wonder if this requires Nextel's use of their own dial-up software. You might want to check into that. Maybe the software needs to be modified so that the 7520 works.

hugman85,
Nobody around here has successfully yet used a 7250 as a modem for laptop. Maybe Verizon doesn't quite want to let this get enabled just yet. Time will tell...

I am Domino BES Admin and I do not see any option to enable IPmodem. The only option I see is to disable IPmodem in an IT Policy. To my knowledge the only way to get IPmodem is to have your provider add this option to your account.

Does anyone know where the option is on the BES?

I may have confused the 'Enable IPmodem' with 'Disable IPmodem'.

Perhaps I should revise my first post to say to 'Make sure that your 'Disable IPmodem' checkbox is cleared.'

Has anyone successfully used the 7100g as a laptop modem with either AT&T or Cingular networks?

Phone: 7100t
BES4.0: Yes

The good news: Successfully tested. Did a few variations; connected using my t-mobile credentials in dialup settings, connected with no credentials in dial up settings, connected with no credentials in dialup settings/no APN information in options->tcp->apn/username/pw (the last part I'm not sure was necessary; in the charm thread about t-mob unblocking ports original poster mentioned you needed to set apn in options->APN, but I don't list that under options so figured TCP is where it should be set).

The bad news: what an awful connection. 11kbs, with a 4 -6 *second* average latency (4000-6000ms)! Are these numbers typical, or is my connection sucking extra bad for some reason? When I run a tracert, nearly every hop along the way is well over 2000ms. If this is the norm, I'm guessing people are excited about this for the ability to run remote admin/ssh type apps?

When GPRS is less congested, the performance should be more like a 56Kbps connection, with a 500ms ping. It shouldn't be that bad, unless you're in congested airwaves!

Greetings,

Rogers, 7290, desktop 4.0, OS 3.8, No BES.

Success! I'm on the the unlimited data trial for a couple months yet so I'll try this out a little. I guess I have to go get a car charger for my laptop now though! There have been rumours that the data prices should be dropping or the caps increasing. I'll keep my fingers crossed. It would be great to have a truely unlimited package and modem come cottage season. Hehehe
