Using Nokia 3589i as FAX modem

Discussion in 'alt.cellular.verizon' started by Andrew, Mar 29, 2004.

    I use my 3589i as a data modem (with the DKU-5 cable) with my Windows
    XP laptop. I usually use Verizon's 3G network, but as a test I have
    connected using the data/fax modem driver to my ISP and that works
    fine.

    However, I'd like the ability to send/receive faxes with the phone,
    and I can't figure out how to set that up. I am trying to use the
    built-in Windows XP Fax Console. The Data/Fax modem driver (or
    whatever it's called) for the phone is installed and I have used it
    for data. I have figured out that in order to let me pick the Nokia
    as a modem, I need to have the phone turned on and plugged in before
    Windows starts up. So far, I have been able to choose the Nokia as
    the modem and initiate a test fax, but it just keeps failing when it
    tries to send.

    Anyone have any better luck using their 3589i as a fax modem?

  2. How did you get your Nokia 3589i set up for Verizon's 3G network?
    Do you have to subscribe to National access?
    Does Verizon offer the Mobile Office Kit software for this phone without the
    cable or can I just use Nokia's PC Suite (I have the Nokia DKU-5 on order)?

    Thanx!

    You must install the modem driver for the phone first. This is
    probably on the CD that comes with the DKU-5 cable, but I had already
    downloaded the drivers from Nokia's website.

    Then, you setup a new dial-up connection in Windows dial-up
    networking. Your dial phone number is #777. your username is
    <wireless-number>@vzw3g.com . Your password is "vzw" (no quotes).

    That's it.

    : Do you have to subscribe to National access?

    Well, yes, but it is a free add-on (automatic) with the America's
    Choice plan. You get it by default. This allows you to use 3G just
    like regular voice minutes. if you have another plan other than AC,
    you will probably need to subscribe.

    No, they don't offer an office kit, but you get a CD with the cable I
    think. I didn't even use it - I just downloaded PC Suite from their
    website plus grabbed the modem drivers.

  4. Thanx alot!!!
    I had purchased the PC3220 laptop card but did not feel it was worth another
    $79.99/month so I cancelled that number.
    Do you know if there is an option to add the extra MB National Access plans
    to my current number (20 MB/$39.99, 60MB/$59.99, Unlimited/$79.99) or would
    that be a question for customer care?
    BTW, how do you like the speeds?
    I used to use Sprint PCS Vision with my laptop and it was decent compared
    with dialup.
    How does National Access compare with dialup? It has to be better, right?

    Anyways, thanx again. I will wait for your reply and won't bother you
    again.

    That would be a question for customer care, as I have the America's
    Choice plan. Do you have a different plan? With America's Choice,
    there is no charge for download size - just cell minutes like you were
    making a voice call.

    I have read (here or on Howard Forums) that you used to be able to get
    "extended network" (old name for national network) added to your plan
    if you asked with the right terminology. When you call, *don't* ask
    for a "feature" - then they'll just try to sell you an internet
    package. What you want is an add-on to your current plan, not a new
    feature.

    : BTW, how do you like the speeds?

    So-so. It's good for working in a pinch when you can't get WiFi, but
    you can tell it seems sometimes slow. I think your real speed is
    limited to the equivalent of about 56K even though my computer claims
    it is connected much faster than that (200+Kbps). I think that higher
    number is just the connection rate between the phone and my computer.

    I would not want to use my phone as my primary internet access.

    : I used to use Sprint PCS Vision with my laptop and it was decent compared

    : How does National Access compare with dialup? It has to be better, right?

    Not really.

    : again.

    No problem. You can get a lot more information from
    http://www.howardforms.com (it is down as I type this). Just search
    the Verizon forum for "3589i data" or "3589i internet".

    I use "national access" for Internet access when away from home.
    I ran speed tests and got download speeds above 90K.
    This is not as fast as cable but twice as fast as my landline Dial-up.
