    Motorola KRZR K1m: EvDO DUN How-To

    Rules-For-Using and Notes-About This Guide

    • Read carefully.
    • Don't ask me how to get QPST.
    • You're responsible for your own actions -- Editing the Service fields of the phone is inherently risky.
    • You're responsible for your own actions -- By connecting to Verizon's EvDO network with the phone tethered requires a premium service. If you're not paying for this service, you are violating the Terms of Service agreement.
    • Please use this information responsibly and if you're going to violate your contract, at least do so sparingly. Don't ruin it for everyone else. My advice: Use this only if you have no other means of connecting to the Internet and only in certain emergency situations. Log-in, check your mail, check a few low-bandwidth websites, and get the hell off the network! Don't draw attention to yourself and this workaround. If it becomes a widespread problem, Verizon will find a way to STOP us.
    • I spent a lot of time experimenting, capturing screenshots, and writing this up. Please don't be rude and complain if I got something wrong. Just politely point it out. Thanks.
    • A lot of the information and knowledge I have came from other HoFo members. Many of you know know who these people are. One individual worth mention is Mark Venture. He has been of great inspiration when it comes to writing proper guides that organize and consolidate important information. This guide is a culmination of information from all sources (too many to name). This method relates closely with Mark's NoPapDun guide, which includes information from many other members in the EvDO DUN Works on E815 FW 01.1E.00! thread. Thank you to everyone involved.


    What you'll need:

    • Verizon Wireless MotoKRZR K1m (Or almost any CDMA 1xRTT-EvDO phone)
    • Microsoft Windows PC with USB port
    • Proper USB Cable (USB-A to Mini 5-pin)
    • Motorola USB Drivers (http://developer.motorola.com/?path=1.2.6.30)
    • Qualcomm QPST v.2.7 Build 215 (not Build 91)



    Step 1 - Set-up Host PC

    On the Windows PC, install QPST and the Motorola USB drivers.


    Step 2 - Connect Phone

    Connect the K1m to the PC using the USB Cable. It's best to use a powered port. The phone should be recognized as a "Motorola K1m/L7c" device. If the phone is not recognized automatically, cancel the new hardware installation window, disconnect, wait a few seconds, and re-connect the phone. If drivers are not installed automatically, direct Windows to the proper drivers installed by the Motorola USB Driver installation.

    Before moving on, check to make sure the phone is recognized by the PC, proper drivers are installed, and the phone is in the correct mode. Do this by checking Device Manager for "Motorola USB Modem" under the "Modems" section.




    Step 3 - Start QPST

    Start QPST Configuration and you should see your phone listed as a SURF device. If not, click the "Add New Port..." button to add the proper virtual serial port. If you don't know which port to add, check the properties for the "Motorola USB Modem" in Device Manager.



    Now, you're ready to start. Select "SERVICE PROGRAMMING" from the "Start Clients" menu to start the QPST Service Programming application.



    You'll be prompted to select a phone. Choose the phone from the list and click OK.




    Step 4 - Using QPST Service Programming Application

    You'll see the Service Programming application window with a bunch of tabs. All the fields are empty. To fill them, click the Read from Phone button.



    A small dialog window will appear to ask for the phone's 6-digit security code. By default, this code is 000000. Enter the code and click OK.



    Assuming you go the code right, the Service Programming application will proceed to load all the fields from your phone. There's lots of ineresting stuff here! You can explorer each of the tabs, but let's stick with the task-at-hand and leave the other stuff to other threads. You may need to click the right and left arrows to see more of the tabs.



    The tab we're interested in is the Mobile IP "M.IP" tab. Here, you should see one profile in the "User Profiles" section. The user-name in the "nai" field is used to log-on to mobile web and other on-phone access to the EvDO network. And as you might have guess, the "tethered nai" field contains the user-name used to log-on to the EvDO network when the phone is tethered. the dun.vzw3g.com user is a special account that is only activated when you pay for broadband access service.



    Let's move on. Select the profile, and click the Edit... button. Delete the "DUN." part of the "Tethered NAI" field. Click OK.



    Now click "Write to Phone" and exit QPST. You're done.

    Cool, that is the same as outlined in -> How to enable EVDO DUN on ANY EVDO capable phone in 10 easy steps! that didn't work on the E815, V3C, and V3M... which is why we had to edit the NVM_Factory File...

    Now on a somewhat related note....

    PLEASE NOTE: For those using the drivers from the MOTODEV Web site -> http://developer.motorola.com/?path=1.2.6.30

    Please also read -> http://mark.cdmaforums.com/DriverConfusion.htm

    You should expect problems when using BitPim, MPT and possibly QPST as those drivers make use of the USBSER.SYS file that is a core component of Windows. More info see -> http://howardforums.com/showthread.php?t=975595

    651 / 69 kbps ·or· 79.5 / 8.4 kb/sec
    Compared to the average we see from myvzw.com:
    · download is 12% better, upload is 29% worse

    These were my results after finishing the above. Note that I did have to go to the other links Mark lists and do the network connection setup part (ie, about encryption and stuff) listed at the bottom.

    Nice to have for emergencies.

    My question is how to get EVDO speeds via USB teathering. When ever I would teather with MPT, I would connect at 220k. How do you create a dialup connection with a speed potential that is as fast as USB?

    Wow.. I didn't even realize there was something like this out there. I've never read a single thread in the LG forums before...

    Thanks for this info! I was able to get 581kbps down and 123kbps up on speakeasy's speed tests with EVDO on.

    220k-what? I'm not sure what your question is.

    Here are some approximate real-life figures:
    • Verizon EVDO Rev 0. data rates are around 400-700 kbps (Theoretical is 2.4576 Mbps)
    • USB 2.0 data rates are around 200 Mbps (Theorietical limit is 480 Mbps)


    USB is more than capable of handling the full EVDO bandwidth requirements... Depending on Motorola's Bluetooth implementation, a Bluetooth-tethered KRZR might see the bottleneck at the Bluetooth connection, though.

    You're welcome! Those are impressive speeds!

    Hey, come on, I got my E815 in April, or was it May??

    Btw,the Chocolate, Music Essentials Kit and 256meg TF were a Free Gift from the Verizon Wireless customer council.... and it so meets my needs as a phone, that I used it three entire weeks and put it on my shelf! (would have used it less, but the initial battery was bad, so I used it some more after getting the replacement) Even with the v4 firmware (that includes speaker phone)... the Chocolate still sits on the shelf... My brother BROKE his phone in TWO... and I made him go buy a new phone... I would NOT even give him the chocolate...

    Haha! Do you pronounce "gift" like "bribe"? The LG guys bribed you to include the chocolate on your site, huh?

    My Questions is how do you typically connect? What software? With MPT after connecting I get the typical windows xp bubble that says I am connected at 220.0 k or something like that. If you setup a regular dialup connection though xp i can only set the highest speed to 115k. help!

    What speed to you get? Not port speed, but real speed. You need to go to something like www.dslreports.com/stest to find that out.
