Using the Tilt as a modem.

Has anyone been able to accomplish this?

There were instructions in the setup manual that I followed, but whenever I went to connect it would tell me there was no dial tone. Perhaps someone could confirm what number it is you have to call or steer me in a better direction.

Thanks in advance!!

Hey Rookie....

Can you be a little more specific? Do you want to connect your Tilt to your laptop (aka tethering) and use the phone as a dialup modem? Will u be using bluetooth? usb?

Re: Using the Tilt as a modem.

Thats actually exactly what I am trying to do.

I am trying to tether using a USB cable, I followed all the directions but when
I try to use the dial up connection it tells me that it cannot find a dial tone.

I am using the stock cable that came with the phone.

Basically this is what you need to do on your tilt.

1. Start -> Settings->Connections -> USB to PC (put a check in the box), OK
2. Start -> Settings->Connections -> Connections
3. Click add a new modem connection (follow the setup wizard, enter your settings) OK
4. Find an application on your Tilt called Internet Sharing (could be under programs or under Settings->Connections.
5.Choose the connection type for the PC (in your case 'usb').
6.Under Network connection, you will find the new connection you made in step #3.
7. Press connect.

***You may have to uncheck #1 if you are having trouble connecting with phone and/or Activesync. (try checked first)

This is off the top of my head, so I may have left something out. I use this method with bluetooth so it should be almost the same.

Re: Using the Tilt as a modem.

I use WMWIFI, and it works great. I live in Alaska and we only have edge speeds. I recently went to Washington and Seattle and loved the 3g speeds While using my phone as a modem/router to broadcast a wifi signal to my laptop, I was getting over 1 meg download speeds. I was sitting in the Airport watching Netfix movies online. It is a huge power hog and will use your battery faster than it will charge. It is reasonably priced, and I love it.
