    Found this from another site... Im sure its valid... but will this hack still "hide" us from being detected as being tethered?

    Per Marcus at Sprint Level 2, effective Oct 1st 2006, they will start
    charging $0.03/KB for data transfered, and text messaging rates will
    rise from $0.10 to $0.15/message. Additionally, he states they now
    have the ability to track people using data tethering, and those
    people will be charged $0.03/KB for useage, unless they have that
    option on your plan. What this means is for those of us who are
    purchasing the $15/month Vision plan and then hooking up a cable to
    our phone to get internet, that will end Oct. 1st.

    I also called and talked to the local Sprint store - they confirm this
    change as well.

    So, for those of you who were using data tethering to avoid the data
    charges, as of Oct. 1st, that will end. After this point, you will
    have to use their Sprint RTT/EVDO card or purchase the data tethering
    plan.

    I knew this would end. but I don't see any link to "another site"?
    Visor -> Treo 300 -> Sprint Treo 700p -> Treo 800w

    Still the question, "will the hack file still work, or will someone figure out another way to hide where data is coming from?"

    I thought 700p out of the box without using the hack or PDANET cannot use as a modem can anyone confirm that?? So if above statement is true, Sprint is really cracking down on people using the hack and PDANET to connect since they don't have to worry about people who don't use the hack or PDANET (without those two you can't connect anyway).

    Does it really worth while for Sprint to implement the new detection system for those who use treo as a modem wothout PAM??? I don't think those group represent large enough market for Sprint to be doing this, Plus after they charge those people a lot of money for data use 3 thing can happen:

    1) they got pissed and cancel Sprint service ( eventhough it's not sprint's fault)

    2) Sprint will credit the charge but you have to get on PAM which will renew you for another 2 years.

    3) Do nothing and pay the bill ( I don't think a lot of people will take this route)

    So I don't see if any of this will benefit Sprint in the long run. Even with people who got the charges credit back and sign two year contract with PAM, two month later they are gonna cancel PAM plan anyway ( if they don't think it's worth paying in the first place what make you think they will pay it now).

    Anyway does this will include tethering with 650 on 1RT as well or just 700p on EVDO???

    my bill just came in today. You see an arrow there. It says causal date usage and it doesn't say anything about data tethering. Who have the same on bills?

    I think that just the announcement from sprint that starting in October Casual data usage will increase from $0.02 to $0.03. But it does not indicate anything about they will start hunting down people who tether without PAM. Hopefully nothing will change for us.

    Good deal.... I hope this is true.. I grabbed that quote off sprintusers, so we will see October.

    I tried installing using a regular hotsync, and there are now 2 files that start 'phoneinterfacelib' in RAM. which file or files need to be deleted? I don't want to delete something I need. Also, do you need to do the reset first or after deleting the file(s). Thanks.

    Downloaded and installed the hack. downloaded and installed the sprint connection manager. Went to www.speakeasy.net/speedtest and got
    1003KBPS down and 110KBPS up. Woohooooo!

    Run the tweak-test, here, to get that upload speed higher!

    I saw your work with the hacking the tethering bit on Sprint and I wanted to know if you knew anything about doing it on Verizon. Does anyone have any information about what the real changes that are needed would be?

    I attemped the listed hack file to no avail.

    This may be a silly question, but once you install this program, what do you do? How do you establish a dial up connection? Can someone please point me to a detailed procedure? Thansk.
  17. #417  
    Well, I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure it depends on if you want to use bluetooth or usb cable to tether. USB cable requires Sprint's connection manager, which as I understand does all the work for you. I believe (I might be wrong on this one) that if you use bluetooth that you should just be able to do it in Windows, treating the phone as a regular modem and tell it to dial #777, but you'd have to get confirmation from someone else on that, as well as more detailed results on how to pair the phone with the PC.

    I just have a question. I noticed on a couple posts someone said something about setting up a dial up connection and others not mentioning anything about it. Do you just use the sprint connection manager or do you have to create a dial up connection? Using XP btw.

    You can connect either way...

    Connected via USB (had probs with BT) . . . 452 kbps with tether and 2486 kbps with cable modem via cnet speed test. This will be great for emergency and out of town use! USB also charges your phone so I like it . . . and atleast my BT sync still works flawlessly. Thanks!

    BTW, I installed sprint connection manager, but did NOT use it . . . just follow the other instructions on this thread about creating a dial-up connection with no Username/PW and #777 as the number. Works great!
