data usage
Authored by: db on Dec 05, '02 10:17:55PM

#777 works well! ....I had the USB cable and sanyo 4900 phone and connected to the internet with this hint...cool. Need DNS server(s) or won't work. No passwords or usernames, telephone# needed with #777 . Could probabably modify null modem script to automate AT commands?
Does anybody know if this is counted as "data" usage on Sprint PCS Vision? I only have 2mb with my plan.

probably counts - new plan is unlimited

I am fairly sure it counts against the data usage. You should check your bill at sprintpcs.com.

The plan (at least through the end of November) was $30/mo for 300 anytime minutes, unlimited night/weekend, and 3 months free of UNLIMITED Sprint PCS Vision with a $10/mo surcharge after that (which is still cheap). They also had $50 off the phone as part of the promo.

Other data calls (calling a fax or modem) cost $0.35/minute and aren't included.

Sprint PCS on the Mac

I've heard a couple of you talking about Sprint Vision name servers and
DNS servers, but the guys at Sprint say they don't know. (what else is
new?) If you could share, that would be great. My efforts to duplicate
your efforts continue to produce a message that says "A modem error
occured. Please verify your settings and try again" after attempting to
dial. Something is working, but I'm not quite getting there.

On my plan, it is just part of the phone's vision features, which for me is free. This just lets you tap into your phone's internet access (the internet connection it uses to check email and that sort of thing).

This works great for me. I'd say this hint is a must for anyone with a sanyo 4900 and a Mac laptop.
