Nice... Thank you very much
if we have one for macs, shouldn't we have one for pc laptop users? (themacace, dont even start. LOL)
anyway you will need
pc laptop/desktop (well duh!)
a bluetooth adapter (if your laptop/desktop already is already BT capable, then you won't need this)
at LEAST a 5.99 data plan or more
bluetooth enabled cell phone
first hook up BT adapter to your computer. if your running windows XP SP2 then it should install the drivers automatically, if you dont have SP2 or running a different windows then use the cd that your BT adapter came with. after that pair your laptop and cell phone together (of course make sure your BT is on your cell) follow the instructions on the computer to pair em together. when you do pair, it should also set up the BT modem.
next set up a new connection. to do that, go to control panel, network settings, and network connections, and creat a new connection. when you click next the first time choose the first option, click next, set up my connection manually, then dial up modem, pick the modem (which should be the BT modem), an ISP name (any should be fine), and the phone number which is *99#, leave name and password blank and set this connection as default
when your done with all of that(sounds hard huh) then go back to control panel, and go to phone and modems, then the tab modems, highlight your BT modem and then properties. go to advance and...
..if you have the 5.99 plan (thanks to krazykritter, for some reason, i couldn't find this in the forums) type this in the box
19.99 plan with VPN
on your phone, make sure you have the settings correct. if you don't have them, we have a sticky to send them to your phone ASAP.
for Internet explorer:
to set the IP and proxy, go to internet options from control panel, connections, (then your network that you use for tmobile) and settings. then where it says proxy service, click the box and type in this address and port
tools, options, connection settings, manual proxy configuration, then same.
**for opera, and other browser users, please post on how to change the address and port #, thanks)
click your new connection icon and there ya go, you can now browse the internet on your desktop/laptop pc
phew, that was a lot, i probably missed a thing or two (my first time writing a tutorial) hope it works, if you have any problems please post em here, or IM me, thanks

Nice... Thank you very much
ha, nice job xtreme ps *COUGH* PC'S SUCK!!!! *COUGH*
lol, glad you got it workin' bro... sorry i wasn't much help lmao...
i'm so glad that string is posted, so that i can actually find it easy enough instead of searching everytime i setup a new connection, lol.
*EDIT* oh, and wanted to add, so people know, that the proxy isn't neccessary on the 19.99 plan (For the browsers) but only on the 5.99 plan.

dude how is the 6681 olly did mwf f*ck it up? hehe asian characters on the keys and crap
no one knows how to set the proxy for opera or other browsers?
LMAO I'll know in about 4 hours Macace... i'm stuck at work, while the UPS man is dropping my phone off.Originally Posted by themacace
considering asking my boss to leave early, but i doubt he'll go for it!
They did fine on my 6630 though, so i'm not to worried about it... and i really could care less if there are the asian letters on the keys, i have 'em all memorized anyway.
@xtreme: the proxy settings in opera aren't that hard... i don't remember off the top of my head, but it's pretty straightforward under 'tools' i believe.
Hey I just tried these settings and I'm unable to connect to anything. The computer dials out and connects just fine but no webpage loads in IE, even with the proxy settings and the advanced modem commands. I'm on the 5.99 plan.
weird. are you subscribed to the 5.99 plan?
tried using a different browser? people are having problems with IE (no suprise) try using firefox. what kind of websites are you going too
Yes, I'm subscribed to the 5.99 plan. I'll try w/ Firefox right now. I've tried visiting howardforums.com and yahoo.com.
yahoo doesn't work, hofo works fine (i should know, i'm tethered right right now)
Nope..Firefox doesn't work as well. Checking the status on the connection, I notice I'm sending way more than I'm receiving.
yeah that happend to me
do you stay connected or do you disconnect after a few seconds?
I'm amazed not to see this but if your computer has a setting for the modem make certain you uncheck the part about it waiting for a dial tone.
