Im using my SAP as a modem for my laptop to connect internet access using gprs of SMART. It's a nice one with the speed of 115.2 kbps. For the moment I dont know yet for the rate for ten minutes continues usage with almost 300,000 bytes received. I will have to check it . Im here at the remote area where no ISP available but still able to connect internet using SMART GPRS. I will post later on how to configure your PC/Laptop and smartphone to connect internet through GPRS.

But using SAP for PocketPC, i don't think it's possible (for now :wink: )... there's no direct interface between PPC and SAP except thru IR. :)

You an use the SAP as a modem for the Pocket PC even just via IR.

I've done this and I have no problems with it... except that I have to hold both of them in an odd position to keep the connection going.

No drivers needed.

Just go to Programs>Accessories>Modem Link

Choose IrCOMM

Then, Menu>Activate

In your Pocket PC, make sure that your Pocket PC is set to dial *99#

In the extra modem dial string, type in +cgdcont=1,"IP","internet","",0,0

Do not type anything in the user name field or the password field. then connect. If this doesn't work, type in smart in both username and password fields. This should allow you to connect.

Yup. Very expensive. It is better to use internet in cafe for PHP 20.00 per hour.

Well, you should be able to use the SAP as a modem for any device as long as you enter the extra dial string modem command...

And for those who are shocked about GPRS bills... that's why you can switch off the show image functin of PIE... this saves a lot since the images are not downloaded.

MSN Messenger for instance can cost only PhP5 even if ou connect for several hours if only minimal data is transmitted or received.

@smartrey-you can only switch off the image function on the pocketpc, not on the SAP. :)
