Default MediaNet GPRS phone not communicating with laptop

Hello again. After consulting this newsgroup I finally decided to bite
the bullet and get a new cellular plan (previous GoPhone, now 2-year
contract + free LG C2000 phone) along with $19.99/mth unlimited
MediaNet option. Although I couldn't find the unlimited MediaNet plan
on the Cingular website, it was readily available at a Cingular store
and was listed in their brochure.

After asking, the clerk didn't hide the fact that I could tether the
phone with my laptop, and added that I could use MediaNet with a PC
Card by inserting my SIM card into it. Of course constantly having to
swap out my SIM would be inconvenient, I was wondering if I could
clone my cell phone's SIM card and use the duplicate in the PC Card.
Does anyone have more info on such usage? Would such a hack allow me
to get broadband rates using MediaNet?

For cable tethering, last night I purchased a FutureDial USB data
cable and installed its software along with that of the LG sync
software, but I haven't been able to get my phone to speak to my PC,
even though the WAP Internet service works on my phone. The LG
software installed a modem on COM1, and the FutureDial software
installed a "Prolific USB-to-Serial Comm Port" on COM1.

Using the WinXP Internet setup wizard I created a new dialup
networking connection for the modem. During configuration I noticed
that all the setup parameters used on the J. Nava website were already
set up in my cell phone. Is there supposed to be a modified setting
for allowing the phone to communicate with the laptop? I keep getting
the error: "Error 718: The connection was terminated because the
remote computer did not respond in a timely manner..." When I queried
the LG modem in Device Manager the result showed success.

Be warned that MEdia Net terms now prohibit tethering (no matter what the sale
person says), and that Cingular could switch you to a more expensive option.

Of course constantly having to
swap out my SIM would be inconvenient, I was wondering if I could
clone my cell phone's SIM card and use the duplicate in the PC Card.


No.

No. And it might get you in serious trouble.

Use Control Panel - Phone and Modem Options - Modems, to verify that the
modem exists, and then use [select] - Properties - Diagnostics - Query
Modem, to verify that it works.

networking connection for the modem. During configuration I noticed

IP should not be set. Otherwise looks OK.

Enable the modem log, and see what happens as recorded in the log after a
connection attempt.

Good answer.

I might suggest something that might be a little easier. Download the
communications manager from the Cingular website - unhook the phone - run
the software and wait for it to tell you to connect it.

And yes, using the Media Net to hook to a laptop will end up at some point
getting taken off.

Tell her you want that in writing on an official company letterhead.

Thanks for your reply. However, things have gone from bad to worse. I
can no longer get the modem to be recognized. After querying the modem
I get an error indicating that the modem is not responding and might
not be connected. I installed the Cingular Connection Manager, but
after initialization it claims that it cannot detect a wireless
device. Before, it would detect the modem but could not get a
connection to the remote computer. The LG PC Sync app was working fine
for a while but now it times out without making a connection.

I took the data cable back to Radio Shack and replaced it but I'm
still getting the same non-recognition of the modem. I suspect there
is some software problem involved but I've tried just about everything
and cannot get my LG software modem recognized. The Device Manager
claims that both the modem and the USB-to-Serial COM port device are
working properly.

Using the WinXP Internet setup wizard I created a new dialup
networking connection for the modem. During configuration I noticed
that all the setup parameters used on the J. Nava website were already

I looked there but didn't save the log. I'll do so next time.

I noticed that an initialization string was created for the modem in
the Advanced tab
:
AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP","wap.cingular"

It made no difference whether I deleted it or not.

Thanks. I'm about ready to give up on the data cable modem and try
either IR or Bluetooth, if available with the C2000.

Have you tried BVRP Phone tools. I used this to test the tether and it works fine for me with no settings. I installed BVRP Mobile Phone tools, hooked the phone up via USB or Bluethooth, then hit the Globe Internet Button, and I was on. It said connected at 200 something and it loaded Yahoo homepage.
