    I can't believe that I can't find any information relating to this topic regarding the Treo 600.

    I have a Treo 600 activated with Sprint and have unlimited Vision. I recently returned from a trip to Canada, where Vision service is unavailable. No problem, I thought, I'll just set it up to dialup as a modem and connect that way (to Budgetdialup.com). No matter what I tried, I couldn't get it to work. In fact, when I set it up to call my wife's cell phone (to test it), it didn't even dial out.

    Anyone have any experience with this? Am I missing something obvious?

    cheers,

    John

    I actually downloaded PDAnet. From what I can tell, it is a program to use your Vision internet on your notebook through the sync cable. Very cool.

    Unfortunately, it doesn't help me access the internet when I am out of the Vision area, which I would really like to do...

    I can get mine to dial, but it won't connedt to my ISP apparently because it does not work in "challenge/response" mode (Radius) and/or does not handle PPP.

    PDAnet is for using the Treo as a modem for another computer, not for dialup for the Treo itself.

    You sound like you're half way there. This "challenge/response" thing could be worked out using a script I imagine. Can you access the site using a modem from a desktop computer?

    Could you let me know the settings you're using for your connection? I was using "wireless modem" and the number, without any specific init string.

    cheers,

    It seems I've at least found a workaround for now. I haven't been able to connect to any ISP via a phone number but I can use Sprint's internal dialup service.

    FYI, go to Network, new service, set wireless modem, user: qnc, password: qnc, phone: #777

    At this point, I'm not sure how this connection is billed.. so I'm not going to use it much until I can confirm.

    If anyone out there knows how to use REAL dialup with the TREO 600, let me know!

    cheers,

    Is there anyone out there who uses their Treo with regular Dial up?

    Yes.

    Which do you need:

    (1) dial-up instructions in general - how-to setup dialup??

    (2) PdaNet dial-up instructions - Customize PdaNet to connect to your ISP


    One really frustrating thing about using dial-up - I often have to ensure the connection is still alive. If there are no black double-arrows above the signal bars, it means the connection has been lost, even if Pdanet or the Treo does not say so.

    Be ready to keep redialing until you get a good connection, and be ready to keep losing your connection.

    Azazello,

    Thanks for the link to that other discussion.. I seem to be having a common problem (dialup disabled on my phone or plan). Luckily the #777 thing works if I get desperate.

    cheers,

    Of course, I replied to this thread before I finished reading the other one.. I will try to reset my phone in between Vision and dialup sessions to see if that helps.

    A final note on this topic...

    RESET YOUR PHONE BEFORE YOU CONNECT TO A NEW NETWORK.



    That's what it took for me to get it to work. You can use any dialup server this way.

    cheers,

    John
