Sorry guys i know i let you down, and as soon as they get HSDPA working. I will make sure this site is the first to know. I un-stickied the how to as requested since it does not work for most.
You have done a lot of work and shared it, so don't apologize. I have tried many variations, and have not yet been successful. What encourages me is that you have indicated you have successfully tethered a Behold, so it is possible. Other forums have some similar recommended settings, BUT - so far - not one of them has confirmed that they got it to work.
You have, so:
1. There must be a way.
I got to samsung 3rd level support, and he was not as detailed as you have been, and then suggested tryng Tmo themselves. I tried PDA support on TMO, and officially - they do not support tethering on this device, but she did say that (2nd hand), she heard some had been successful, but even if she knew the settings - she was not allowed to provide them.
2 Therefore, it may just be a matter of one or two additional settings that resulted in your success versus the general failure most people ar experiencing. So pardon the following dumb questions:
1. What are your Behold settings for the Browser (APN, Pxoxy primarily) - ie, I am assuming you did not use the out of the box TMo settings. If you did....
2. Are there any other profile settings you may have tweaked (like the network selection, etc).
3. In your first post on this thread - did you have to do the advanced initialization string (it was not mentioned there)?
4. Then did that setup connect, or did you further modify it per your follow-up post (which indicated that user name/password are blank) ?
5 The initialization strings here start with +cgdcont, some I have used to get connected with other devices (Nokia, Blackberry, Motorola) have started with AT+cgdcont - just want to be sure which worked on your connection.
6 Do the Browser APN and the initial string have to be consistant (ie, both wap.voicestream.com or both interert2.voicestream.com).
Anyway, I think a lot of people are very close - just looking for that possibly one thing that has been left out possibly.
PS - I could not find a spell-check on this forum - is there one?
