Ok.. I have gotten my hands on the T-Mobile MDA and one of the first things that I did was contact support so that I knew how to use my MDA as an EDGE Modem when traveling.
In this example I was able to set up the Modem through a direct USB connection to the Laptop.
On the MDA go to Start Menu >> Programs >> Modem Link
Set the following:
Connection Type: USB
Access Point Name: wap.voicestream.com (This may Vary, but should be preset)
Click the Activate Button
Connect Your MDA to Your Computer via USB
The Computer should find a New Hardware. Select Have disk and point to the provided CD Rom from T-Mobile. It will find and Install the drivers for Modem - HTC USB Modem (Com7) - The com port may vary
Go to the Modem Properties
Start Menu >> Control Panel >> Phone and Modem Options
Under Modems Tab
Select HTC USB Modem and Press Properties button
Go to the Advanced Tab
Enter the following stringin Extra Initializations Commands:
Create a New Connection
Start Menu >> Control panel >> Network Connections >> Create New Connection
Walk Through the Connection Wizard
- Select Connect to the Internet, Click Next
- Select Set up my connection Manually, Click Next
- Connect using a dial-up modem, Click Next
- Select Modem - HTC USB Modem (Com7), Click Next
- Type a name Tmobile GPRS EDGE, Click Next
- Enter *99# into the Phone number field, Click Next
- Leave Blank the Internet Account Information, Click Next
- Click Finish
Click Dial on your Tmobile GPRS EDGE Connection or from Network Connections right Click and Connect.
Your computer will now connect to the T-Mobile internet via GPRS.
