How to set up you cell Phone to connect up to the Internet via USB Cable, IR, or Bluetooth

To set up you cell Phone to connect up to the Internet via USB Cable, IR, or Bluetooth
Go to the website of your phone's manufacturer. Find the support section and locate the modem driver for your phone. If you were provided with a driver disk along with your phone, copy the modem driver from the disk onto your computer. If you were provided an executable file (.exe), a file that runs an installation program, then skip ahead to the "Creating the Connection" portion of this tutorial.
Go into the phone's menu and activate the modem. Since activating the phone's modem function varies from phone to phone, consult your user's manual for instructions on activating the modem.
After the phone is set to function as a modem, connect the phone to the computer via the USB cable, Bluetooth or IR. You will receive notification from your computer that new "hardware was found." You will be asked if you would like your computer to find drivers for you phone automatically and you will also be given the option to specify the location of the driver. Choose to locate the driver and point the installation menu to the folder containing the driver.
Creating the Connection
Go to the "Start Menu" and open the "Control Panel." Once the "Control Panel" is open, click on the "Network" icon and, from there, select the option "Set up a Connection or Network."
Choose the option
Choose the option "Set up a Dial-up Connection."
You will be presented a list of different connection types, choose the option "Set up a Dial-up Connection." In the next window, enter #777 into the box labeled "Dial-up Phone Number." While the access number #777 works with most carriers, check with you carrier if you encounter access problems.
You do not need to enter a Username or Password unless directed by your wireless provider. Create a name for your connection and enter it in the box labeled "Connection Name."
In the Taskbar, right click on the connection icon and choose disconnect to end a session.
Click connect at the bottom of the menu. You should be authenticated and connected within a matter of seconds. If you need to re-establish a connection, your connection will appear in the "Network" menu inside of the "Control Panel."

how do i use my samsung c5212 as a modem to pc and to connect to internet.


Follow the below mentioned steps : 1. Connect the Samsung cell phone and computer. If you are connecting via USB, connect one end of the USB cable to your Samsung phone and the other end to your computer. It may take a few seconds for the proper drivers for the Samsung phone to install. If pairing via Bluetooth, make sure Bluetooth is enabled on your Samsung phone and start a search for devices on your Bluetooth-enabled computer by right-clicking the Bluetooth icon in your taskbar.
2 Launch Internet Sharing, found in the Start menu on your Samsung cell phone. Open the application.
3 Configure Internet Sharing. The status menu should read "Disconnected." Under the PC Connection setting, select the method you will use to connect your cell phone to the computer--USB and Bluetooth PAN are the choices. You shouldn't need to change anything under Network Connection, unless a network other than is showing on the display.
4 Start the Internet Sharing connection. On your Samsung device, press the Connect soft key. It may take up to 30 seconds for the connection to be negotiated, during which the status line may say "Check USB cable connection"; this is normal.
5 Connect the computer to the Internet sharing phone. If your computer and phone are paired via USB, no further pairing is needed. You will see the shared Internet connection as a wired connection in your Network and Sharing control panel on the computer. If you are connected to the Internet Sharing application via a Bluetooth personal area network, the computer must be synced to the phone. Right-click on the Bluetooth icon in the taskbar and select "Connect to a PAN" or similar, based on the version of Windows you are using. A list of all Bluetooth PAN connections within range is shown; select your Samsung phone. The PAN connection will be negotiated, and the Internet connection will be shared.

cannot install java on samsung i640


Im very sorry Dude

  • It is NOT officially possible to install java MIDlets on samsung handsets (excluding smartphones) via bluetooth, IrDa, USB cable or serial cable. MIDlets can only be downloaded by Over-The-Air (OTA) via a download server
  • There is currently no method for installing MIDlets on other platforms other than by OTA/GPRS via a download server.
BUT THERE ARE SOME UNOFFICIAL METHOD PLEASE TRY THIS BUT RISK IS WITH U.

Install JAVA games on your Samsung via a USB cable, BT or even an IR port
The method here is rather straightforward. It has been tested on my two D500 phones without a single problem biggrin.gif

1. Download and install Softick PPP from here. The software is designed for Palm users, so if you receive any error messages such as unable to locate USBPORT.dll, just ignore them.

2. Active your IR connection or hook your USB cable into the phone.
For IR users, you need to active the IR connection on both of your laptop and D500, and approach the laptop with your D500 to let it find the phone prior to any transferring.
For USB connection, the one I tested is from fonefunshop

3. Start Softick PPP, and check if it has your connection in its 'Settings->Bluetooth/Serial'. Active it if done.

4. Run 'Uploader.exe' program and add a jad file.

5. Enable Serial Java download - #*536963#.

6. Enter Serial Java menu #*5737425#, and choose USB from "1 PPP UP'. Please bear in mind, just do it once for each switch on/off!
Select second option - "2.Serial Download"

7. Let upload and softick PPP access the net if you installed a firewall.





-More details--------------------------------------------------------

If you are using a USB cable, please take the following steps:

1. deactive Softick PPP, and exit it.
2. connect the cable,
3. run Samsung's PIM & File Manager to make sure that you get connected. If not, please switch off and on your mobile and try it again.
4. run Softick PPP
5. go to it's 'Settings->Bluetooth/Serial' to check if it has a connection such as COM7 Devicess_mdm0. If so, select it, otherwise exit the Softick PPP and go back to the first step. (you may find the proper COM setting from the windows device manager->modems->Samsung Mobile USB modem)
6. active Softick PPP.
7. run Uploader.exe
8. ......

For IR users,

1. deactive Softick PPP, and exit it.
2. active your IR connection。
3. approach your phone to the laptop, and make sure there displays an icon in your tray area and it gives a message 'there is a device around....'
4. run Samsung's PIM & File Manager to make sure that you get connected via IR. If not, please switch off and on your mobile and try it again.
5. run Softick PPP.
6. enable IRDA interface support in 'Settings->Options'
7. go to it's 'Settings->Bluetooth/Serial' to check if it includes a connection such as 'COM4 Device
