    Has anybody managed to get this to work. I get an error 692 (hardware failure in modem or other connecting device)

    This is with a Cingular Treo trying to connect with an XP laptop.

    I haven't tried it yet but plan too on my Sprint 650. IMO, if this works well, then IMO it is 10x better than PDAnet b/c it doesn't require desktop client...

    Yeah, please let us know if it works for you. I can connect via bluetooth but I'd rather just hook the phone up via USB.

    I believe my error code was different but same text on a Sprint 650. Also when the backlight shuts off the connection is lost between the laptop and the Treo.

    I noticed last night that on my Treo in the usb modem program it does not show the antenna as if I have the radio turned off. Any one else notice that.
    I am on Sprint.

    BTW my error was also a 692, sometimes a 633 port is in use. I have tried with and without Hotsync on. NO DICE.

    Mobile Stream has released a new version today (4/18/2006) with support for CDMA and fixes for imcompatibilities caused by recent Treo firmware updates. I haven't had time to try it out yet.

    I have the trial version of USBModem working on my Sprint Treo 650. Its not lightning fast but it beats the heck out of nothing.

    Edit: Dial #777 for Sprint. I don't know about any others.

    It works on my Sprint 650 also, but after about 4 minutes it sends but stops receiving.

    On the 3rd attempt works great now. I'm buying this program.

    Update at about 10:30PM
    The condition appears to be intermittent, some times the SW will run flawlessly and sometimes it will send but not receive and then not re-enable on the Treo unless you do a soft reset. This is on a Sprint Treo 650 with the latest PalmOne update.

    Anyone having better or worst results ?

    The updated version seems to be working well with my Cingular setup. Got it up and running and then I got disconnected and was able to restart the program and reconnect. That's something I could never do with bluetooth DUN.

    Going to try it out over the next week and if it continues to work I'm definitely buying it.

    I have version 1.30 and I still have the problem of it stop receiving but still sending. I have stopped using it. PDANet seems to be running faster than before and the pictures are not compressed anymore. (No more ctrl F5 to refresh), but I think it has to do with Sprint's network.

    My earlier post on 1.30 was a special Beta to try and fix my send only problem. I am playing with 1.30 Final as we speak. So far so good. BTW their Card Reader is a keeper.

    Well, the first day I installed version 1.2 it worked fine over multiple sessions. Ever since I have not been able to get it to connect through the USB port. I have gotten it to connect via Bluetooth after I updated to version 1.3.

    Today I tried out the phone call while surfing claim and I will say it seems to work. My feelings are the packets are paused while the phone call is in progress and then resumes afterwards, but I will test more this weekend.

    Does anyone know if this application will enable a user to avoid the Verizon/Sprint tethering charge for a Treo 700P? If so, this application could pay for itself VERY quickly.

    BTW, I just downloaded the USB Modem app and I have to say that I was pretty impressed. I like the idea of being able to use the USB cable since it allows me to keep charging the Treo while using the Treo as a modem.

    The transfer speeds in both USB and bluetooth modes were essentially the same. I was getting ~120 kbps down and ~107 up on average. That's very good for 1xRTT on my Verizon Treo 650.

    The background mode is pretty good, though I probably don't see myself using it all the much. I was hoping that I could keep the USB Modem app enabled in background mode and still be able to use Versamail, but I can't. It's the same thing as using the DUN checkbox. If you plan to use Blazer or Versamail on the Treo, you need to disable the USB modem application. I'm not complaining, mind you. It's still a very good utility. But since I have versamail on a download schedule, I would need to have the USB Modem application disabled to make sure Versamail will connect.

    After some investigation the answer seems to be "yes".

    USB Modem (since the first version) uses the VirtualModem.prc virtual serial driver to access the radio. This is the driver that is also used by the Treo PmPPPNetIFLib.prc component when the data mode is enabled on the Treo (i.e. for Blazer, mail etc). Since these system libraries never tell the radio module to switch to the tethered mode the connection established from the PC via USB Modem looks like the "internal" one.

    Note that in the current version it might be necessary to disable the bluetooth on the Treo to use USB connection via USB Modem to avoid conflict with Bluetooth DUN manager. Anyway, this will be fixed very quickly.

    FWIW, I installed this today and just finished an extended session of using it with frequent gaps of me leaving my laptop for several minutes and returning to find that my connection was still alive. Speeds felt almost as good as my DSL which was better than I was expecting. If it could handle automatically disconnecting the connection on startup and automatically turning BT off and back on when exiting that would be even nicer. Now I just gotta hope that I don't have any surprises when my next Sprint bill comes in.
    Now THIS is the future of smartphones.
