I myself would like to know how to connect with my new BJII
"On the phone:
Go to Settings > Connections> USB Change it from Activesync to Modem.
The phone will trickle charge while tethering with the USB cable so your batter will not die.
On your computer:
Start> Control Panel> Network Connections
> Choose "Create a new connection"
Choose "Connect to the Internet
Choose "Setup my connection manually"
Choose "Connect using a dialup modem"
Name the connection: "Att tether"
For phone number enter *99#
User name (all caps): [email protected]
Insert the CD from the box and choose the bottom option. Choose to install the Samsung
Hook up the phone using the USB cable.
Go to Control Panel> System> Hardware
tab> Device Manager> Modems
Right click the Samsung modem and choose Properties
Under one of the tabs it asks for a Modem Initialization String (advanced tab maybe?).
Enter this exactly: +CGDCONT=1,"IP","WAP.CINGULAR"
Be sure to choose apply
Close that out and go back to Network
Connections in Control Panel.
Double click "ATT tether"
Click Properties and then make sure the Samsung modem is chosen as the modem to use with this connection.
Close it out and then double click the desktop
icon for your new connection. Click "Connect" and you should be online."
This works perfect with Vista and XP, too bad no bluetooth tethering
