    Mobile Broadband Connect?

    I just switched (via Verizon) from a Blackberry Curve to the HTC Incredible. I used my Blackberry as a modem for my laptop quite a bit and still require that capability with my new Incredible. I kept my plan in place at Verizon to ensure I could still do this but I've been unsucessful so far in using my new Droid as a modem. I've been through the manual, etc. but can't find the problem. I'm using VZAccess Manager on Vista as my interface. It won't recorgnize the device and keeps prompting me to insert a non-existent CD or go to HTC's web page to download the driver software - which is not there as far as I can tell.

    Any suggestions?

    Mobile Broadband

    First of all- I'm new at this.

    I just got my new Incredible- my first Smartphone and the VZ rep helped me with the mobile broadband setup. I had been using a VZ Novatel USB broadband modem on computers running Windows XP.

    These were his instructions which worked for me:

    1) Go to Control Panel in XP and remove Verizon Access Manager as well as the Mobile Generic Drivers programs which had been used with the Novatel 760. I was told having multiple programs and drivers would cause confusion.

    2)Go to VZAccess Manager

    3)Go down to (PDA/Advanced Device)
    Choose HTC Incredible and download new Access Manager software appropriate for your computer's OS.

    4)Connect the phone to the computer via USB and follow instructions.


    I must say I had to be patient - it took a little while to recognize it and work. Hope this works for you.

    I take it this is unlike the traditional wifi tethering where it's somewhat invisible to their servers? With this, obviously they probably are able to know you're tethering and thus a charge to those who don't have the plan for it would get charged?

    I've never really tethered much, hardly at all, more or less just a test run here and there, but, to be able to have it as a last resort option would be nice.

    orenb, thanks much, it worked like a charm and I now can use my Incredible as a laptop modem.

    I've been unable to tether as well. I have the programs installed on my laptop and can connect to the phone via the programs but it tells me I need a $15/mo access plan. I upgraded my Alltel phone to the Incredible without changing the plan and I have a full data access plan with the Alltel account. I think this is something I'm going to have to battle with the Verizon staff at the store. I refuse to pay for something which I already have.

    Tethering on HTC Droid Incredible

    Step 1: reprogramming your phone

    from your phone, dial ##pst
    enter security code 000000
    click "edit mode"
    scroll down to Security
    change the "S.IP DUN User Name" to "<your phone number>@vzw3g.com"
    hit back
    scroll down to "M.IP Default Profile"
    change "DUN NAI" to "<your phone number>@vzw3g.com"
    press menu, choose "Commit Modifications."
    The phone will power cycle.

    Step 2: Computer setup

    Drivers: download and install VZ Access Manager from http ://www .vzam .net
    don't run the program, you only want it for the drivers.

    Next, plug your phone in to the computer. Let windows take care of the driver installation.

    Per your version of windows, you'll need to set up a manual dial-up networking connection. Settings you'll need:

    Phone Number: #777
    Username: "<your phone number>@vzw3g.com"
    Password: vzw

    Step 3:
    browse the internet.

    It's not a hack, it's just the old way of doing things. They will indeed know (doesnt matter, since he pays for the service) because he's using their Access Manager.

    I don't think they really mind as long as you try to be reasonable and not tie up enough bandwidth to support 10 clients.
