Re: Dial up properties for phone as a modem

Peter, have you managed to use a SIM from another provider to work?

I just tried my partner's phone - which is with Telstra - and I got exactly the same error code as before with my phone?

Re: Dial up properties for phone as a modem

I would suggest you're having a problem with your computer talking with your phone, and having it function appropriately as a modem.

Can you try using the Samsung software to establish the connection, as this might be the more 'user friendly' way to rule out any issues here - http://www.samsung.com/nz/support/model/GT-S5511QRTTNZ-downloads

Re: Dial up properties for phone as a modem

Yeah I agree - I believe the issues are now in the PC.

If I try and dock the mobile with the PC using a USB cable - the phone reconozies the USB - but the PC comes up with a Windows error message and says it does not reconize this device?

I have Samsung PC Studio on the PC and it doesn't load properly - never has. I can't use it.

I feel I am that close to sorting this...?

Perhaps a USB driver?

Re: Dial up properties for phone as a modem

It's concerning that PC Studio doesn't load properly. Can you put your phone into USB mass storage mode (I'm unfamiliar with your phone), and access the phone's storage?

It would be helpful if you can see if this works with another computer, so we can start to isolate the problem, and confirm it's definitely your computer causing the grief.

Re: Dial up properties for phone as a modem

I have a working version of Samsung PC Studio - ver 7

This works and looks for the mobile and locates it - using Bluetooth. USB cable not working.

The PC Studio asks to have a Password set between the PC and the phone.

How do I know or set the Password in the phone.

PC Studio says I can make the PW anything I like.

I put the same in the phone and it makes no difference.

Getting close now
