    I very occasionally use #777 to check email on the road by connecting
    my Palm Tungsten to my phone. However, the connection only works in
    some loacals. I have been successful in Chicago, Milwaukee, Boston,
    DC, but not in Omaha (where I live), Minneapolis, Orlando, and,
    recently San Antonia. Any ideas why this happens?

    I've connected via my phone from my laptop in Omaha and Minneapolis
    recently (last few months) without problems. While not recently I've
    also used my phone to successfully connect my laptop in Orlando and San
    Antonio and lots of other Sprint served cities. I don't think your
    problems are likely to be Sprint network related, at least not beyond
    some sort of transient problem.

    Over the Thanksgiving weekend, I was in Orlando and the Tampa Bay area. I
    used #777 to connect my laptop to check my personal e-mail as well as to
    connect to my employer's VPN, and I had no significant problems.

    Hmmm, interesting. It is either my phone or my pda. I guess I'll
    have to do some testing. Thanks for the replys.

    I use #777 occasionally to connect a Mac laptop.

    I have intermittant problems, but I have not been able to find any
    consistent pattern. I don't think my problem is a location-related
    issue... It might fail in Washington DC but work an hour later.

    When it fails, the symptom I see is when I try to connect, the Mac
    networking software trying to dial the USB-connected phone says "..
    device does not exist." Often changing the modem script, removing and
    re-plugging the phone makes it work again. I'm using a Sanyo phone
    FWIW.

    Re: #777 issues

    Sally,

    Thanks for the reply. I have only tried to make this connection using
    my A500 and my Tungsten T. It has never worked in Omaha and always
    worked in DC, for example. I am going to buy the new Sprint Bluetooth
    phones as soon as it is available. Then I can see if my Mac will
    connect. Anyway, the puzzel continues. Thanks for the reply.
