Sanyo 4900 as USB modem
Authored by: pedrog on Dec 06, '02 12:26:04AM

In case you have a Sprint PCS Vision phone, here is the configuration needed to make work as a data modem using Sprint\'s ISP:

Running under Mac OS 10.2, the phone is detected when plugged. I have a Sanyo phone, so it shows up as SANYO USB Phone. You need to get the USB cable. Sanyo sells one for $30. Sprint sells a connection kit for $70 that includes the cable and PC software (practically worthless).

Use the following settings:
Under network control panel, select Network Port Configurations and check SANYO USB Phone.
Show SANYO USB Phone and on modem tab, select \"au cdma C413S by Sony\" modem script.
In PPP tab, place telephone number as \"#777\". Leave account name and password blank.
In PPP advance options uncheck all boxes.

Use Internet Connect to connect. The modem script is set for a 115Kbps top speed.

Apparently you can get the USB cable from Radio Shack, part no 170-0782, for only $19.99. If they don't have it in store, they should be able to order it and send it to your home.

I'm going to RadioShack tonight and order one.

I followed your instructions and it worked fine as for the mac reconizing the cellphone. I yet have to try a connection. I don't have service yet cuz im waiting for my old plan to expire. Tnks for the info. It work flawlessly. Question: Do you or anyone here know how to get the mac to access features of the phone. (i.e. FurtureDial's -SnapSync-SnapDialer-SnapMedia- software?) I would like some how to sync my address book and download pics and ringers for my phone.

*** Update *** I'm online with the phone! I didn't used the \"au cdma C413S by Sony"\ script. I found a \"Sprint PCS script"\ near the bottom of the list. So I used that one. It works great. I guess apple added later to the list or I just forgot that I downloaded it from sprints website and installed it. Humm. I have OS 10.2.3 now. Ya.. I think they added it. Oh well it works.
The phone displays Packet: Rec and Trx bars to show you that you are actually transmitting and receiving packets. Really fun to watch for a bit. I notice that at Apples website the graphics are a bit downgraded. I guess the site sees the slower speed and adjusts accordingly or Safari has something to do with it. Whatever, the damn thing works.
Please feel free to Email me if you have any questions.
