    Does anyone know if you can use an i58sr as a modem?

    I don't want to pay for Nextel rates, but I'm thinking of simply connecting
    the phone to the USB as a modem device, dialing into BellSouth and going
    from there.

    Re: i58sr as modem

    I downloaded that, and tried to dial in. the phone says "setting up data
    call" and then it times out and the comp says no dial tone was detected. i
    assume this is because i havnt paid for dial up service. my question is
    then, what good is this driver? when you get dial up you can download this
    software to use it with.

    Re: i58sr as modem

    Though I have not tried it yet, the software more than likely is simply a
    driver to allow the pc to see the phone as a modem when it really isn't.

    In my case, I'll use the phone as a modem and dial into a BellSouth local
    ISP number. Once connected, I can then run IE type requests which is my
    objective.

    It doesn't circumvent Nextel's selling of ISP services, it simply makes the
    phone a modem to call whoever you want.

    you need to call nextel and ask for dial up service, it costs 10 a month and
    comes with NOL for your handset

    sometimes if you ask the right rep nicely they will give it to you, simply
    because you end up using your cell minutes anyway.. Why pay to use something
    you're already paying for ?? :-) at least that's how some reps see it.
