    When I had my Treo 650 on CDMA, I used it as a wireless modem. I had
    Sprint PCS Vision -- use the phone as a browser, get e-mail, etc.,
    etc. -- and it worked as a wireless modem okay. Not speedy, but I only
    used it that way rarely when I needed it.

    I now have an EvDO Treo 755p, which is faster for all web activities,
    but I have no idea how to use it as a modem. I don't need it nearly
    enough to spend 40-50 dollars a month for unlimited data usage.

    Any idea how to get that wireless modem functionality back with my new
    phone? Either on my windows machine or Mac (which is preferable)?

    Do a search for PDAnet software from June Fabrics

    And if you ever get it working, please post your settings, etc.
    here. It's good software, I've been told, but I cannot get it
    running for my combination of 755p and Dell Vista laptop.

    I have no issues using it with my HP Laptop running Windows XP using the
    USB cable. The HP does not have Bluetooth.

    Perhaps BT was the problem - I should walk before trying to run.

    With PDAnet (and a cable), your laptop can go online anywhere
    there's EVDO coverage, using your PowerVision unlimited
    subscription?

    Thanks!

    So... are you all saying that I should still be able to log on using
    my
    755p as a modem using my existing service? Which login and password do
    I
    use -- the one I use for VersaMail? Or...?

    (There were once very specific instructions for using "Wireless Modem"
    on my 650. That software seems to no longer be supported, however.)

    Thx!

    I believe it will work anywhere there is Vision access. Doesn't need to
    be PowerVision.

    Check out the PDAnet software. You don't enter any user/password. It
    uses your Vision/PowerVision connection.

    Excellent -- it works! And quite fast, too. Thanks! I wish there was
    an OSX version, but
    using VMware Fusion to run it works pretty well! So my obvious
    question is, is using
    the official Sprint 40-50 dollar-per-month data service really that
    much better or
    faster to justify the cost?
