    Is anyone else having quirky laptop connection problems with sanyo
    5400--my old 4900 had problems but was more dependable than new
    5400--any suggestions--I have tried new sprint downloads, and the
    drivr download, modem setup--both equally frustrating.

    It would be nice if you explained what problem you are having ...

    Have used a 4900 with sprint's software on a 1.6g tosiba lap for about
    a year-and the connection was typical of what is discribed, trasfer
    rate, required some disconnect/reconnects cycles, but it would be
    fairly dependable to connect with.

    Hooked up the new 5400 to the same system, nothing. all types of
    nothing. I had read they new ones wouldn't work with the cable. Then
    I would get occassional connection bursts of maybe 10, 15, 20 seconds,
    then no transfer.
    I had never used the modem driver connection stuff, downloaded these
    drivers from future dial, no initial improvement, kept reloading the
    drivers, or re-installing them, had about given up, then suddenly
    connect via the modem setup, virtually no disconnect problems, and
    appeared the best connection rates ever. Worked for hours on and off
    till I turned everything off. Next day tried to use again, either the
    modem not recoginzed message, or line busy.
    Downloaded the new sprint software, got occassional connection
    bursts--but very frustrating--lately,if I tried to used a previously
    established connection may/or may not work, sometimes barely, other
    times very good--sometimes seems like have to establish another modem
    connection--it's not predicatable. Love the 5400 phone, as the built
    in vision stuff is much faster than the 4900, pages load much, much
    faster--

    Also, if I could not get the 5400 connection to work, I could plug the
    4900 back in and the phone would be recognized, and would try to
    establish a connection (4900 was not active, so couldn't go all the
    way).

    pardon my poor discription of the problem, but it's like I am using a
    differenet system ever time I reboot the unit---never the same
    results--where as with the 4900 I knew the thing would work, with the
    5400 sometimes it's more trouble than it's worth.

    For some reason I feel like it may be a glitch with the 5400, but
    everything else works great with it, and regardless of anything else,
    when the usb cable is attached, the laptop makes the little connection
    signal. and with the sprint software, the system check shows all is
    okay, but in some cases (actually a lot of cases) when "go" is clicked
    it will try to make a connection and just a few bits are indicated as
    sent, then sort of freezes---then is very difficult to get a
    disconnect--usually have to reboot either phone/laptop/ or both--not
    sure which cures the problem.

    Disable ReadyLink on the 5400 before you make any data connections with
    your laptop via the cable. For whatever reason, readyLink does NOT like
    it when you have a laptop connection and will repeatedly try to "hijack"
    the data connection so it can register with the network.

    When you're done with the laptop, you can just enable ReadyLink again.

    For wahetver reason, this problem occurs on the 5400, but NOT the 5500,
    which seems to know that it should cut off ReadyLink on its own during a
    laptop data connection.

    Thanks, but ready link was already disabled.

    ASking again--has anyone noticed that either their sanyo 2500/5400 or
    5500 is not as easy to use with the tethered laptop connections as say
    the 4900/5300 etc/? Yesterday my connection (s) were better than
    perfect, good trasfer rates, no unusualy terminations. Today;
    unrecognised usb error message, would reboot either(or both) the
    phone or the laptop, then may or may not recognize the "modem", then
    may or may not begin the connection routine, and if it would connect,
    would work maybe for 30 seconds---never a really solid
    connection--feel like it's a defective handset, as if the "connect
    Phone" command appears on the sprint pcs connection program, it will
    always recognize a 4900, but not the 5400--since sprint does not
    really offer support for this I am reluctant to go to a sprint store
    and ask.

    I've noticed the exact opposite. My 5500 works for this way better than
    my 4900 did.

    Very strange, sounds like a USB driver or OS-related problem. But as I
    said, in general I now get much better performance with the 5500. I
    never had your specific problems, though, with either phone.

    Will respond to my own question; seems like my problem what with a
    bad cable; my older cable for whatever reason must make only an
    intermittant connection with my new 5400--by chance, tried another
    cable and so far has worked perfectly---sometimes its the simplest
    things--
    The test feature on the sprint business connection indicated a good
    connectiot and that all tests were okay-- also the old cable still
    worked with a 4900

    -hum
