Dial up Problems
I am having problems using my Blackberry as a dialer/modem. I get it to a point where it says call failed on the phone. Is there any strings that I have to put in to get it to dial out. It worked fine on my old razr. Any help would be great.
Check out this "How to" Guide: How to: Use your Blackberry As Modem with your PC
If this doesn't work, post back and we'll be more than happy to help get you up and running.
Nope did not work. THe phone acts like it is dialing, so it is talking to the laptop but then says call failed. I am not trying to get to the internet. I am using it just as a moden from a program
Do you have an internet plan active on your account? You mentioned you aren't trying to get on the internet but only trying to use a program.....Am I correct in thinking you are trying to dial into someone's server directly? If so, not sure if the unit can be used that way....haven't seen anyone try....most people use VPN to connect directly to a server.
Yes I have and data plan but the server I need to get to only has dial up. Kinda sucks that I have to switch to the razr to do this
Try this site. It has the carrier specific settings you need to add into the initialization commands. Worked flawlessly for me. The speed is of course not the best, but works great in a pinch when you can't plug into a landline and no wi-fi available.
