    Last year, I purchased a Samsung A500 and a SnapDialer cord and used
    it on a trip I took through Alabama (can you believe it worked
    there??!?!) last fall. I have a wLAN at home, so I hadn't had reason
    to try #777 until a few weeks ago when my router went down. I found
    that it didn't seem to be working. Before, if I picked up my phone
    and dialed #777, it would automatically launch my Vision home page.
    If I dialed #777 through SnapDialer, and using the little
    pinging-yahoo.com trick, I got a pretty good connection. Now when I
    dial #777 on my handset, it rings and says "the number or code you are
    dialing..." blah blah blah error.

    Any ideas? Did Sprint finally "wise up" and shut this backdoor off?
    Is something wrong with my service provisioning and/or phone? If so,
    how do I call Sprint and tell them to "please fix my backdoor to the
    Internet so I don't have to pay $100 a month for an unlimited
    Connection card plan?"

    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated, direct to my e-mail if
    possible.

    Thanks!

    It works for me and it's not a backdoor. #777 is how you connect to the
    internet though the phone. Did you download a ton of crap? Your sprint web
    phone is not internet. They get you on the technicality.

    Adam, you could have a corrupted driver and may need to download another,
    install it and create a new DUN.

    Also, did you change any settings on what was your default modem?

    I ask as I found I had troubles dialing through #777, as I had changed my
    default modem setting. Once I made the SPCS DUN the default modem, it worked
    great.
