I have a Hyundai TX115C, and recently purchased a data cable for $99 from Telecom. As per their instructions I downloaded the Sync software from the Curitel site. I can now happily sync my contacts, calendar and photos between the phone and my laptop.

However, what I REALLY need to do is set the computer up to use the phone as a modem, through the data cable, so I can connect to the internet while travelling. Unfortunately I cannot see anything in the sync software to support this, and it does not seem to have loaded any modem drivers or similar.

Does anyone have any ideas about how I go about this? Thanks.

Hi nholtzha, there are two types of cables in the market. The 'Genuine' cable, and an APT cable. For the Genuine cable your support is from the manufacturer or from the Telecom Data Support Helpdesk (aka DJUICE).

If your cable is an APT cable you also have support available from ourselves. With our cables there is a mini-cd (hockey rink shape) that includes drivers and instructions to utilise the phone as a modem for internet connections. If it's an APT cable and you didn't recieve the CD please contact me and I can send you the drivers + info. I will however need the APT serial number from the cable to confirm if it's an APT one or not.

The DAT-USB-TX95 cable retails for $179+GST. I believe the cable is on the promo list however, so if you're a business or corporate account customer that meets their criteria you should be able to get it on their $20 promo system.

If you need any further information drop me a line either by pm, or through the forms on our website.
