Hey guys, long time reader first time poster....

I'm trying to use the new Sony Ericsson V600 as a modem on OSX for a client, and having a few difficulties with the connection string. Does anyone know what the standard SE sonnection strings should be? i've tried the obvious *99# etc. They shouldn't be any different for a mac should they? Any help would be appreciated

Welcome to Geekzone! The number to dial should be *99# (default GPRS) or *99***x#, where x will be the GPRS connection on your mobile phone.

Make sure the account has got data enabled (some operators mess this sometimes), and most importantly, check taniwha.org.uk for specific Mac OS X modem settings.

Also, most of the new Motorola and Sony Ericsson require a reset command (Z;) to be sent before they can connect - worth trying the scripts you find on that site, and if it doesn't work add this to any initialisation string, as the first thing (as ATZ; or as Z; alone, depending of the string).
