    I couldn't get my V60i TDMA AT&T Wireless phone to dial out as a modem.
    I even brought up Hyperterm on my Windows XP PC and I am able to enter AT
    commands.
    When I enter only "AT" I get the OK response, but when I enter ATDT5551234
    (or any number),
    I get "NO CARRIER" as the response. Will the V60i TDMA phone work as a plain
    old modem
    at 9600 baud? I know it is a slow speed, but I just want it as an emergency
    backup. It works fine
    sychronizing using TrueSyncPlus, so I don't think the problem is in the
    connection from the PC
    to the phone.

    Is there a special init string that I need to use to set up the phone to
    dial on AT&T's TDMA digital network,
    or do I need to force it to analog mode?

    If it needs to be in analog mode, I can't find the way to force it.

    AT&T does not support this function, they used to with a special 3com modem
    and cable on certain phones long time ago but it is no longer available.

    No you can't.

    No digital phone has a real "modem" in it- just a way totransfer data
    to/from a cell carrier. The carrier then uses a "real" modem at their
    HQ for you, to connect you to the outside world.

    Unfortunately, AT&T doesn't have a bank of modems at HQ for this
    purpose, so they don't support data transfer over TDMA. Cingular
    does, so your phone's "modem" would work if you were a Cingular TDMA
    customer.

    It's not a connection problem, just a carrier who doesn't support TDMA
    CSD (Circuit Switch Data) calls.

    Analog mode would be useless- the "modem" in your phone only works in
    digital mode, with a compatible carrier. In analog mode you'd need a
    special interface cable to connect the phone to a real analog modem,
    which were available a few years ago for a few popular phones (Nokia
    5160, for example) for big bucks.

    > If it needs to be in analog mode, I can't find the way to force it.


    The special interface cables generally forced the phones into analog
    mode.
