    Re: how do i use my v551 as a modem on my laptop

    You can use whatever provider you want. You do need a data plan to do that.

    Yep, you need that but nothing else. Connecting to your own ISP
    through the phone just counts minutes, not bytes.

    You can connect to your own ISP without a data plan. You have to have
    CSD ($3.99/month) then just put a + in front of the phone number you
    dial to turn on data mode.

    I am using it from my laptop and my palm without any problems.

    I too didn't want to pay for a data plan but CSD is necessary.

    How else do you expect them to pay for the equipment that makes it possible?

    What you actually get for $3.99/mo is a data plan called "Wireless Internet".

    That's Cingular WAP, plus you also get CSD (Cingular ISP or your own ISP) at
    no additional charge. You don't have to actually use the WAP, but that's the
    feature you're paying for. CSD is just serendipity.

    Equipment? I don't remember calling my LAN carrier and asking them to
    charge me to make a different type of phone call. Or do you mean the
    equipment they bought to block me from making the call?

    The equipment needed for CSD.

    >I don't remember calling my LAN carrier and asking them to

    It's not a different type of phone call.

    A GSM phone has no real dialup modem, just a sort of virtual modem which
    makes a connection to a carrier's IWU (Inter Working Unit), located in some
    service center. The IWU has the actual modem that can make analog data calls
    and/or fax calls over the PSTN (public switched telephone network). If the
    carrier doesn't provide an IWU, or if your account isn't provisioned for CSD
    (Circuit Switched Data), then a GSM phone cannot data and/or fax calls. If
    your account is provisioned for CSD, then all you need is to install the phone
    as a modem with Windows Dial-Up Networking.

    >Or do you mean the
    >equipment they bought to block me from making the call?


    There is no such equipment.
