    Ok, so I finally got off my cheap ass, and added a vision package to my
    account. What I want to know, as I have never used it before, WHAT do
    I need to do to connect my phone to my laptop and use it as a modem.
    I'll just be picking up email etc.. so usage will be small, and only
    occasional.

    I have the cable to connect my Sanyo 8200 to my laptop etc..

    Can someone walk me through this?

    TIA..

    Michael, first off, you need to install your phone drivers for your phone.
    Find your phone model here -
    http://futuredial.com/support/download/USB_Drivers.htm download and install
    it.

    Connect the cable to the phone and then to your laptop. It should see the
    new hardware, and ask for the drivers to install the new hardware. Point it
    to where you downloaded the drivers. Then set up a new dial up, using the
    new Samsung set up, and plug in the phone number #777, and do not
    include a user name or a password.

    unless you're using a Mac. In that case, just plug in the phone and
    it'll show up as a Sanyo Modem.

    For just using the #777 connection option with vision the sprintpcs
    connection manager does not do anything special to make it worth using.

    Thanks Bob, I have the full suite of programs, snapdialer, snapmedia,
    and snapsync, with the lastest drivers. Snapsync, and snapmedia work
    perfect with my Sanyo 8200. I just needed the info you supplied, on how
    to set up my software to dial.

    Thanks again,

    I had the USB cable and Sanyo 4900/8200 drivers with it but didn't know how
    to use it to dial out. The #777 was the answer, thanks! Not I need to find
    some shareware software for transfering multimedia/ringer/games ets from the
    computer to/from the phone. Right now, I don't see the importance to
    purchace the SNAP software packages. Know of anything? Thanks.

    There are two other programs which you can check to see if your phone model
    is supported.

    www.susteen.com & www.bitpim.org . BitPim is free but it's still
    developmental software.
