Just what the title says
I could swear it was a sticky somewhere but now I can't find it ANYWHERE.
YES... I was very interested in some threads that were asking about using a bluetooth phone as a modem, and how you were billed for that, specifically, if it would be free on nights and weekends, if calls during those times are free on your plan. There was at least one thread on this subject, but it seems to have died before revealing any useful information.
Lol from the way it sounds you must be using Verizon.
Verizon bills usage on some accounts as regular minutes. As in, if you are on for 25 minutes then its 25 minutes of anytime minutes. If you are on during n&w its free.
I was looking for the thread on HOW to do it. I saw it just YESTERDAY!!!
ah... thanks for the info. I actually have cingular. Does anyone know the specifics about their service for phones as a modem?
P.S. Sorry for basically hijacking your thread!
im not too sure, but i thought only T-Mobile allowed its customers to use their phones as a modem. All others will charge you.
( i have Sprint and i know they will let you slide unless you go overboard, then you're in for the most expensive phone bill of your life)
I have a friend who works for t-mobile and i asked him about it and you have to get a t-mobile internet plan and he said it was about $20 a month.
Don't all Apple laptops have built in modems for about 10 years?
Or is this a BT phone setup thing for anywhere 128Kbps access?
go to howardforums.com then to your carrier discussion, and your phone.
search for DUN (Dial up Networking). There will be more discussion on how to and how it is billed than you will ever want to read.
I *believe* that Verizon doesn't track data, so it will go against your minutes.. but they don't allow it on their phones.. but there is a work-around that I've read about. Cingular counts it by data, so unless you buy the $80/mo unlimited data plan they are going to punch you in the mouth with a 6 trillion dollar bill. I'm not sure about the rest of the carriers.
