  1. Thanks Richard, I do like the Blackjack and it's an easy fix for me. I didn't know that WM6 was coming for it so maybe I wait. It looks like WM6 is the way to go.

Interested in wifi, camera, bluetooth, touchscreen, mp3 Cell Phones that caught my eye. - i-mate Ultimate 8150 (specs seem hard to believe, but hey! I'll take it!!) - HTC S710 - iPhone??

  4. Hello everyone! I bought the original Audiovox SMT5600 way back in Nov/04 Back then with ATT we set up the phone easily to surf the web with IE browser and get email etc. Setting up the phone to us as a MODEM was a bit hard but we got that done too. Now that ATT is Cingular I upgraded my phone to the Cingular 2125 and was expecting to get the same features only better. Yes I can surf on the phone using IE browser and yes I can send and receive mym POP3 emails but using the phone as a MODEM is another matter. I just got off the phone with a Cingular tech who told me I need to have a different plan. Currently I have the Media Net unlimited MB download for $19.95 per month but they said in order to use the phone as a MODEM to connect to my laptop I need to download their DataConnect software AND to change plans to their Data Connect plan which is $19.95 but for only 5MB of download!!! Unlimited is a lot more!!! ;) Since I already have a full internet connection on the EDGE system I should be able to use that connection. I don't think it's right for them to have to charge an EXTRA $40 per month just to be able to use the phone as a moden for my laptop. What do you all think?? With the ATT System what I did was set up the modem as a dial up connection which would dial *99# to make the connection as a MODEM. My main question is... Can we get an internet MODEM connection with the new 2125 Smartphone without using the Data Connect software? Anyone familiar with this please respond.
  5. Hi there. I was looking for an application that I could load onto my SMT 5600 that gave me a good usable countdown timer with alarms and a stopwatch with laptimes. Basically something like the G-shock watch do etc. Any links?? Thanks for reading __________________
  6. BlackSea: You da man!! Thanks a ton! I am sending this with the gprs connection on my SMT5600. :lol: :D ;) Decent speed too!
  7. BlackSea: I think you are trying to show me how to link my computer to my phone using Bluetooth. I cannot do this because my computer does not have Bluetooth. I am trying to connect to the internet by using the gprs connection with my cellphone. Not by dialing an internet acces phone number like a regular line, but with the gprs connection that I already have on the cellphone. I should be able to do this, using the USB cable or the IRport.
  8. Hi there. I have Windows XP pro and ATT wireless SMT5600 using usb connection. I turned off activesync on the PC. On the phone I went into Modem Link and set the connection to USB, then clicked MENU activate. I downloaded and installed the driver for the modem. Now my PC network connections has 2 dial-up connections called att gprs using *99***1# and GPRS connection using *99***5# I tried changing the GPRS to *99# Anyway when I go to network connections on my PC and right-click one of them to connect... it tries but it gets... opening port Error: 690 No dial tone. I don't want to dial a number, I want to connect with GPRS. I must be missing something basic. Can anyone help? :?:
  9. Hi all. For anyone interested, I just posted a review of the Audiovox SMT 5600 on ePinions.com Click HERE Awesome phone. Still looking for a fix on the Key-lock/dimming issue. When taking a call with key-lock mode on, the screen will dim to a dark setting and only one key will reactivate the screen but you can barely see the instructions. Taking the call should turn off the Key-lock feature so that you can access the lighted display. Instead you need to remember not to instinctively press the end-call button, which also doubles as a cancel or return to home button. This may take some time to become a habit as the screen goes dark after 50 seconds. Same thing happens when I get an appointment reminder while key-locked, you can barely read the screen to see what it is and what to do, dismiss or snooze. Worst thing is you cannot take it out of key-lock until you dismiss or snooze. Would be good to be able to reschedule it too.
  10. Thanks encece. I somehow have it working now. Im very happy. How do you like your 256MB SDmini??? My SMT5600 didn't come with one and I don't find I need one at the moment. What are you using yours for?
  11. So today as I was reading a webpage I heard an email notification. SO I swapped over and to my suprise saw that the send/receive must have just went through because there it was, a new email. So replied to it and left the reply in my send box to see if it would get sent in 15-minutes. I waited about 45-minutes and it was still there. What's up?!?! :?
  12. Hi everyone. I'm fresh into the smartphone arena but not a too much of a n00b at PDAs, internet and puters gadgets. trying to configure my new Audiovox SMT5600 to check my POP3 server evey 15 minutes but I just can't seem to get it working. I can get the mail when I do a manual send/receive but not automatic. I always seem to forget to press send/receive and so I don't get to send my replies until I realize. Also trying to get mmode to send replies thru my domain or at least show like it came from my [email protected] not [email protected] Any ideas?
