    I've seen them and know they're out there. But, I'll be dangblasted if I can find 'em again. Would someone by any chance have a copy they'd like to share? Thanx...

    Activating ##MSL or ##675 - What Does this one do ?

    Loopback ##56672225 - Whats this one used for ?

    Mobile ##7738 - Mobile Protocol Revision - Choose IS-95 or CDMA2000 - Is this for Verizon ?
    633 = 'off' - turns off the radio
    7277633 = passoff - turns off passthrough
    8778 = 'up??' - toggle "software download"
    3424 = 'diag' - toggle "passthrough"
    3825 = 'dual' - ???
    727 = '???' - ???
    744 = 'sig' - signal strength (note: done button didn't seem to work)
    83843733 = 'teathered' = toggles teathered mode
    8766 = 'vp on' - "voice privacy enabled"
    87633 = 'vp off' - "voice privacy disabled"
    377 = err - show last crash cause
    88722366 = '88 traceon' - "trace enabled"
    887223633 = 88 traceoff' - "trace disabled"
    28722366 = '2 traceon' - "trace enabled"
    287223633 = '2 traceoff' - "trace disabled"
    798722366 = '79 traceon' - "trace enabled"
    7987223633 '79 traceoff' - "trace disabled
    If you connect your laptop to your Treo 600 with a serial cable and punch in ##83843733 is there anything else you have to do to use it as a wireless modem?

    I found this website about using AT commands with a different phone and wonder what other steps are needed (if any) for the Treo 600. and PdaNet work?
    Sorry about the typing errors; I'm all thumbs.

    does anybody have a similar breakdown of GSM codes?

    Is there any code that will indicate what actual tower(s) you're connected to? maybe it's in the debug parameters one??

    There is information in the ##DEBUG output that you can use to determine which tower(s) you are connected to, but it's a big pain in the **** and you would have to have already done a lot of work on your own (i.e. there do not exist any public databases of the information you need, so you would have to build that database yourself for your local area).

    All I know about this I got from Google Groups, mostly looking in the cellular phone newsgroups. As it turns out, the Treo 600 ##DEBUG output is basically identical to the debug output you can get from any PCS phone. I don't have my references at hand, so I am just digging this up from memory and I may make mistakes, sorry.

    On Sprint, if you dial ##DEBUG you should look at the "Finger PNs" and "Active PN" lines. PN stands for "Pseudo Noise" and it represents in some sense a "channel number" that you are communicating with a tower on. There are 512 possible PN channels (well, maybe 511 or something, but around 9 bits).

    Any given tower has several "fingers", which are the actual antennas. There are generally 3 antennas (fingers) per tower, each covering about 120 degrees, and overlapping slightly. Each "finger" has a different PN, and no two towers with overlapping reception areas can share a PN.

    Online you can find location and frequency information for towers that are tall enough to be regulated by the FCC (that's not nearly all of them, excluding ones that are on buildings and such like that) but you can't find what the PNs are. So you will have to drive around and figure that out yourself, by
    getting close to a known tower and seeing what the "Active PN" is. Then if you drive around that tower in a circle you can see what the other finger PNs are and about what direction they are pointed.

    Once you know what the PNs of your nearby towers are, you can look at the "finger PN" list and the signal strengths associated with each PN to triangulate your position very roughly. But that seems like a lot of trouble for relatively little payoff

    Have fun!

    Thanks Grib, that does seem like a lot of work. I was foolishly hoping that there was a code on the debug screen that I could just plug-in to some website and see what tower I was on. Oh well, wishful thinking!
