trying to get my 2210 to use bt dial up with my new razr (cingular). trying to dial an isp, as i want to use voice rather than data minutes. was able to do no prob with my old phone and ir. am able to see DUN as a service; when i click, the phone number briefly appears on the phone, then cuts out. this happens one additional time before getting the error message on my ppc "no modem at above number..." on the phone end, while the number pops on the screen, i hear several tones (like tones you get right before the phone company error message "the number you dialed is not in service...", for example). however, the number never actually dials, as far as i can tell. any ideas?

All new Motorola and Sony Ericsson mobile phones need a reset before using Bluetooth DUN.

You should add Z; to the Init String on your Pocket PC for this connection. If you already have a Init String there, then add this to the start of it.

hmmm...
do i just add "Z;" to the section labled "extra dial-string modem commands"? tried that without any change. do you mean the phone physically needs a reset, or that the z; is the reset command?

Yes, that is in the Additional Init String commands, and it's Z;. You might have to include the full APN configuration string though.

I found that Cingular uses the APN ISP.CINGULAR, username WIXDC001@W5.MYCINGULAR.COM and password ZXY203DC9K0402 (or so it is reported in other threads here in the forums).

So you could try this string: Z;+CGDCONT=1,,"ISP.CINGULAR" and see if it works.

thanks for the help, but again, no use. i tried using that string with the same results; also tried several others from that link, although those seemed geared to gprs. as i said, i'm just interested in contacting a standard isp using voice minutes. this phone seems like it never even actually dials out. still not sure what i'm missing...

Ah - I see, missed the point you wanted to dial-up to an ISP. If this is the case then you might have to contact Cingular directly. All phones should support CSD, but the operator may disable this in your account...

CSD (Circuit Switched Data) is a type of dial-up connection where the call is completed between cell phone to the ISP, using the circuit all the time, like a voice call. It offer slower data rate when compared with GPRS (9.6/14.4kbps x 42kbps) and it is charged per minute, since it is using a circuit all the time.
