Hi All,

Can anyone please tell me what number needs to be dialed to establish a dialup networking connection. For the old telecom network it used to be #777, but since I don't have an XT network SIM or handset, I cannot test that.

Thanks for your speedy responses.

I'm trying to support someone remotely, and *99# doesn't seem to be doing the trick. I guess I will have to get ahold of a XT SIM and test for myself.

If you are setting up a dial-up connection you will likely need a string command to place in the initialisation settings of the Modem (Control Panel > Phone and Modems > Modems Tab > Select Modem > Advanced Tab, and include the APN here also.

Try AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP",""
