Default Anyone use Verizon 8830 DUN overseas?

Please Login to Remove!

I'll be travelling to England and Italy this summer. Has anyone here successfully used the DUN tether with their laptops overseas? If so what username/password/dial-up settings were used?

Thanks in advance.

I tried my entire time with every setting I could find on the web and had no luck. Try searching the forums and web for vodafone modem settings and maybe one will work for you, I could not get it to work in France or Spain.

I am thinking maybe Vz locks the sim card to prevent tethering or something. I have Sprint now and they seem to be more tether-friendly so hopefully next trip will be successful there. Otherwise phone, email, and browser surfing worked well with the Vz.
