Dial up properties for phone as a modem

Hi there

I have Bluetooth setup on my HP Laptop. Which is using Windows 8

 

I can connect to my Samsung GT-S5511T mobile phone. This is not a smart phone.

 

In the Windows Dial-up properties boxes, it askes for the number to dial, to access the phone provider and then the net.

What is the string (number) I should install to access my BOOST service?

Thanks

Peter

Not sure if this is possible. Probably best you find a phone which you can tether with Bluetooth, WiFi or USB

The phone has BT and it connects to the laptop.

A mate has basically the same setup and he can access the net on his laptop via the mobile.

Except - he uses Telstra.

Which is why I ask this question.

It is possible - I  just need someone to tell me the dial up for boost ?

It is possible.

My advice is to speak to your mate and attempt to use the same Telstra settings. Let me know how you go. Perhaps you can share the settings with the Boost community Smiley Happy

Try dialling *99# in conjunction with the Telstra / Boost Mobile APN settings.

This line -string is in the Windows 8, - Phone & Modem properties, Advanced tab- 

Extra settings

+cdgcont=1,"IP","telstra.internet"

 

Is this correct?

If I interrogate the modem (phone) using the windows Modem properties dialog box and go into Diagnostics,

I can get this result from the log:-
