Set up a Cingular T637 as a Bluetooth modem

Yes, you can use most GSM phones as either 9600bps analog modems or as GPRS tethers.

The setup is mostly the same. In the ppp setup menu you enter the phone number you want to dial rather than the GPRS CID number as described in the parent article. When connecting, the phone will initiate an outbound call to the number rather than going directly on-line like it would for GPRS.

Note that using your phone as an analog modem will count against the voice minutes in your plan, though not usually against the bandwidth limits. It is also slower than doing GPRS tethering.

There is a webage which explains the differences.

Set up a Cingular T637 as a Bluetooth modem
Authored by: Gonzonia on Apr 26, '05 08:41:33AM

I just got a t637. Which script works if I don't want to use the GPRS, just the analog GSM at whatever slow speed I can get?

I tried the built in scripts, because the GSM scripts on Ross Barkman's page note that these are the same as his.

Any suggestions?
