    phone and then it would work pretty good for awhile. Good luck. DonnaB

    Data cable for internet, stalling out?

    I am using Win98se, IE6 and a Sanyo 8100 with data cable for some surfing. I
    use only a DUN dialing #777 and have Sanyo driver I was given for the
    "modem".

    When this works it is great, good speed and such. Compression is apparent in
    the photos.

    Anyhoo, does anyone know why, seemingly at random, this connection type will
    lock your IE so that it acts "dumb" and cant find anything? It will just act
    like the page or content is not there. If you refresh it acts likes it is
    trying, even receiving burts, bit nothing. The pages are there, thats not an
    issue. It does something to IE, because if I disconnect and then dial in on
    my Dial up ISP, it connects, but cannot find anything. If I reboot, then I
    am ok again.....until I use the Phone to connect again then it might work
    for 5 minutes or maybe 45 who knows, then without ant warning, boom your out
    again. Never a problem if I stick to Dail up.

    Anyone know what this stupid connection or driver is doing? Is it Sprint
    sending a stop command to your cache or something to keep you out? I know
    they don't want people using the "unlimited data" plan they sell them.

    Don't take life too seriously,

    Quit using your phone in a manner that it's not allowed to be used!

    It is allowed - otherwise you wouldn't be able to do it. Sprint does not
    approve of it but does not, at this time, make you stop doing it unless you
    abuse it...or so I've been told. DonnaB

    "Can a customer use their handset as a modem on an unlimited Vision plan?"

    "No, customers on an unlimited Vision plan should not be using their handset
    as a modem."

    Some customers are purchasing a Vision handset and a data cable to connect
    their phone to a laptop, using it as a modem on an unlimited Vision plan.
    When this occurs, the customer is getting internet access on their laptop
    with the ability to up/download thousands of megabytes per month in data.

    The terms associated with our Unlimited Vision plans provide that "these
    plans are not available with PCS Connection Card, PCS Connections Kits or
    other devices that can used as a modem.".

    On November 24, 2003, we will update our terms and conditions to include an
    additional reference to this restriction.

    If a customer asks if they may use their handset as a modem:

    Please respond with: Our unlimited Vision plans only permit you to gain
    internet access through the handset itself. If you should choose to use a
    Connection or Data kit, we have special metered plans which you may sign up
    for.

    If the customer would like to know how to use our services for wireless
    internet access:

    Please respond with:You may visit a Sprint Store to check out a Connection
    Card, which may be plugged into the laptop for wireless access with the
    purchase of a separate service plan.

    ALSO in the terms of service contract...
    Unlimited PCS Vision plans/options are only available with phones or PCS
    smart phones where the device is not being used as a modem in connection
    with other equipment (e.g., computers, PDAs, etc.) through use of connection
    kits or other phone-to-computer/PDA accessories, or Bluetooth or other
    wireless technology. Sprint reserves the right to deny or to terminate
    service without notice for any misuse. Sprint is not responsible for any
    opinions, advice, statements, services applications or other information
    provided by third parties and accessible through PCS Vision wireless
    services.

    Using it as a modem is different than using packet switched mode. The
    latter merely uses #777 to access it as it is already ON the network if
    your phone is on. #777 is really more of a login than a dialup even though
    it looks like a serial modem to the computer. Dialing a regular isp via the
    phone is using it as a modem but is also MUCH slower.

    Oh, quit top posting or people will think you are just using the default
    settings of Outlook Express. Oh but you ARE using Microsoft Outlook Express
    6.00.2800.1158 is see. Hmmm.......

    Re: Data cable for internet, stalling out?

    its not IE its the phone.

    nothing you can do about it. sometimes it "stalls" and simply can not get it
    back.

    just disconnect and reconnect.

    it works very well and I use it as lightly as I can to keep under their
    radar.

    just take it and be happy you can do it at all without paying a small
    fortune !!! :-)

    Re: Data cable for internet, stalling out?

    Please do not do this (ping)

    you are uselessly sucking up airtime bandwidth and this will cause them to
    crack down on us cable users.

    be respectful of the VERY limited network PLEASE I beg you.

    go ANYWHERE else and it costs $60 to $100 to get internet on your pc via
    your cell phone.

    Sprint only charges $15 and "looks the other way" so long as we do not kill
    the network.

    browsing and e-mail is all I do. the only time I download anything is LATE
    at night during off peak time and then I keep it to an absolute minimum.

    I do not want to lose the ability to link to my laptop for $15 a month.

    if it stalls so what. disconnect and reconnect it only takes a few seconds
    and for that few seconds you can continue to have wireless anywhere internet
    bliss.

    Re: Data cable for internet, stalling out?

    Plus I am allowed to do it. I made it very clear how I would be using it
    when I renewed my contract.

    so for me is contractual. so long as I do not abuse it (the rep did specify
    that)

    I do not.

    running a ping just to avoid having to reconnect once in a while is abusive
    to me.
