Motorola v60s and 1x/high-speed Internet access?

Discussion in 'alt.cellular.verizon' started by Ethan Shayne, Jan 6, 2004.

    Has anyone successfully gotten a Motorola v60s phone on Verizon
    Wireless to connect a PC/laptop to the Internet on their high-speed/1x
    network?

    If so, can you say what settings you used and what kind of cable?

    Thanks,

    You'll need an accessory from Motorola:

    Mobile PhoneTools CD ROM
    with USB data cable - 98540

    its $60.

    Did you get Phone Tools to recognize your phone? I couldn't get it to
    work. Quicklink, from the Data kit did work.

    You don't need to purchase anything, but a cable, such as the FutureDial
    cable for your phone model. Download the drivers off their website.

    Then go on to Howardforums.com and follow the thread for enhanced
    messaging/national access. The process for connecting is descibed in detail
    and works fine.

    Or get the Motorola NNTN4007A from any Nextel dealer if you want to be
    able to charge the phone while it's tethered. (Drivers from
    www.susteen.com/drivers.htm work well too.)

    Hmmm, do cables usually not charge the phone? I've got a V120e and
    wondering if thetre's one that charges it while being used.

    The Radio Shack cables don't. Some Motorola cables do, some don't.
    If the 120 has the same connector as the V60 series, you can use the
    Nextel cable. If not, there's probably some Nextel cable that has the
    same connector as the 120.

    Cable from eforcity.com (http://www.eforcity.com/cmotv60xdat2.html) charges
    phone -- reasonably priced, too.

    While those (and any others I've heard of) are cables that let you charge
    when connected to a pc, there are none that allow you to charge while you
    are using the phone online.

    Of course, there's probably a Murphy's law corollary that applies to this,
    Seems like the need to recharge is inversely proportional to your need to
    make a call :)

    That's one of the ones that specifically misrepresent things, yes you can do
    'data transfer' and charge at the same time, but they define data transfer
    as pc to phone, NOT while you are using it as a modem and online.

    I'm using my eforcity cable as we "speak" connected to a PC as a modem. It

    But are you USING it as a modem while charging, or just connected but not
    online?

    Thanks, thats good to know, cuz with a v60p that cable wouldn't charge when
    online (one of our friends has unlimited express and leaves it connected all
    day, but the battery keeps dying), so i've been looking for one that
    actually does it. :)

    What, exactly, do you mean by "online"? My cable allows me to charge
    my phone whenever the charger is powered, whether the USB end of the
    cable is connected to a computer or not. And I can make a call,
    connect to the internet with the phone's browser, transfer things
    to/from the computer or get online using the phone as a modem for the
    computer while the charger is powered and charging the battery.
