AOL Christmas

I just couldn't sleep.
So I hopped out of bed
and downstairs I did creep."

Symbian: Technology: Symbian OS v7.0 Functional Description
which inside the Motorola A925

if the start up fails

You need to disconnect and reboot the telephone
then reconnect

and with Windows task manger kill mRuteruntime.exe which blocks the USB
com port

Just using the A925 as a data modem for several hours
and it is fine and stable on the Danish 3G net

up to 384 kb/sec

Med en 3Mobil kan du ringe og sende SMS i hele Danmark. På 3's dækningskort kan du se, hvor du også kan ringe videotelefoni og downloade data med op til 384 kb/sek.

this connection running art 230.4 which is the USB limit I think

the connection died because themodem battery was empty otherwise rock solid (cross fingers)

AOL were kind to me

My credit card ran out
out of date -- but they let me take nearly three weeks to catch up, without discontinuing the service.

Gonna log on from 3 network - see previous blogs

Yes it works fine
noticably quicker than the Orange GPRS connection but not as good as the AOL Platinum with its virtual network to USA

I'm back (2)

The LG U8120 worked well for about a week as a modem for my Sony Laptop
then an error message Hardware Failure :-(

so I took it back to the shop in Copenhagen Strøget - the "Walking Street" and after 24 hours got a free upgrade to a Motorola A925 which after much fiddling about connected at 230 kps

I have a 2 giga byte per month subscription at a reasonable price

but took about 4 hours and another help line call to get it working again - if it falls out it pays to reboot the telephone :-))

The software enables you to view hard disk C in the phone
(and drag and drop either way)

to get on line
so far I have to kill mRuter.exe from Windows task manager

whilst experimenting with Windows XP sp2 control panel
Phones and Modems

then the Motorla Simplify Manager could see the phobe as a modem

Possibly it works better with Blue Tooth instead of USB
but I cannot afford a BlueTooth dongle for this older machine

The 'puter software is advanced Beta in my opinion
perfectly useable if you can find out how to tweak it


Just lost the first version of this blog
the connection timed out :-(

Meanwhiile my Norton Virus has updated in the background

I wrote a review for Mobile Phones UK: Online Guide
but I forgot to add a link to this blog :-(

So I recovered most of my text

Symbian 7 operating system, the range of software available for the A925 is extensive.

As a 3G phone, the A925 supports all of 3's video mobile services: video calling, video messaging & downloading video clips. It supports assisted GPS (Global Positioning Satellite) for enhanced location-based services. It also benefits from high-speed data transfer whilst on the 3G network. The screen format supports widescreen video.

Ask3 the UK version


now it all works
I had typed 3tri instead of tre which is Danish for three
because of a language misunderstanding on the telephone

the internet option seems to be peculiar to Denmarknot on UK site

Error 734

after 5 days and about 4 hours on their help line
the truth about NetConnect På 3 is out

I got it wrong - see the next post above
an excellent email from the help staff
and it all works a treat !

See - Google Search: ppp link control terminated
Google Search: "error 734"

and "Error 691" or "Error 734" When You Attempt to Establish a Dial-Up Connection in Windows XP

LCP: PPP Link Control Protocol Overview (RFC 1570)

and another sufferer

All About Symbian Forums - Nokia D211 - Error 734 - PPP Link Protocol:
"Nokia D211 - Error 734 - PPP Link Protocol

Anyone help?

I bought on of the new Nokia D211 PCMCIA Cards to use with my laptop. I have inserted my Irish SIM Card and have been able to use it for Dial-Up to my ISP but can only connect at about 9.6 Kpbs. If i can get a connection through GPRS it should be quicker.

I have tried a few of the other solutions such as User Name: web, password: web and ensuring that the dial up number is *99#, i've also changed the security settings to allow the Unsecured password. I can seem to find anything else to get this to work? Anyone else any ideas? Im running WIN XP and the SIM card is IE Vodafone.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I asked danish orange to update my subscription to this but they refused me :-(

so therefore I went to NetConnect På 3 they want me to uninstall SP2 which I refuse because of the security issues
and the cost of the download

more help
Troubleshooting Your Modem Connection (Windows)

In the PPP Settings window, find the checkbox labeled Negotiate multilink for single link connections. If the box is checked, click to remove the checkmark. If the box is already unchecked, click to make the checkmark appear, then click again to remove the checkmark.

Your search - "TE åbning mislykkedes" - did not match any documents.
which is the Danish error message on the phone.

my typical session here is so far:-

sent 675,704 byttes
received 2.203,550

and if I cannot pay my ORANGE telephone bill I will be off line for a couple of months -- LOL

Posting by IMAP

Well I am still with and paying a silly price per megabit
downloade via their cell phone / mobile telephone as a digital modem Sony
Erikson already blogged
I was able to manually configure the modem after getting an email

But I am using imap which reduces the overhead of images downloaded by the
proper AOL 9.00 application

I have got a second mobile from
an UG8120 apparently made in Korea
which is both faster and cheaper and one for my daughter and so we may see
each other on video

but my log on to their server does not work yet
I had to uninstall the modem and the software then renistall the lot with
the modem drivers last
as a plug and play item in WnXP sp2 to get as far as a handshake (rejected)
with that server
