    Cell Phone Companies & Computers
    Well, I am with sprint and I hate them as of this minute. All day I have been trying to set up things to where I can connect my powerbook to my phone and use my phone as a modem. Basically, it can't be done unless I go through tons of red tape with sprint. I hate them. And I am pissed.

    Do other people have this same problem?

    Does anyone else connect their computer to their phone for internet purposes occasianally?

    Am I stupid?

    Sheesh, I now officially hate all phone companies except for cingular, and possibly t-mobile because they seem to be the only people who realize that maybe, just maybe, people should be able to use their phones for things other than calling people. Like connecting to a computer and using it as a modem.

    Ok Ok, I realize this was a little venting but there are questions in their too.

    This thread gave me a new outlook on T-Mobile. I might be leaving verizon because of this thread.

    First of all. Sprint has the best data plans available.

    It is very simple to connect your phone to your laptop. as long as you have a vision capable phone that supports DUN (dial up networking). Most Sanyo's (except the 5600), and the majority of Samsungs are DUN capable.

    Sprint does not officially support "tethering" and connecting your phone to your lap top techincally violates your terms of service, however; Sprint never enforces this policy. If you are trying to get help with this form Sprint, you are up a creek, because Sprints Customer service is generally clueless, and since they technically do not support this feature, they will not be able to help you.

    OSX actuallly has a sprint vision driver built in to it, all you have to do is set up a new profile with #777 as the phone number, and the password blank. I do this all the time, and have been for years.

    What phone do you have? That very well could be your problem. If you really want help with this, go to www.sprintusers.com or www.howardforums.com Please do a search before you ask for help, as most questions have been answered a thousand times, and are probably already addressed in the FAQ sections. If you are still up a creek PM me, and I'll see if I can help. I am a long time Sprint fan, and have worked through a number of struggles.

    Good luck.
