    i760 as modem and ActivSync

    I paid for the tethering plan (call me a sucker, but it just seemed easier) so now I want to set up the phone as a modem, but can't seem to get ActivSync to work at the same time.

    I installed the Verizon Wireless manager program. On the phone I set up "as modem through USB" option in the "DATA CONNECTIONS" system option. However, as soon as I do that the computer no longer recognizes the phone as a pda, only as a modem. ActivSync disconnects.

    Is there a way to set it up so I don't have to keep switching the Data Connections setting when I want to connect the phone up?

    on a side note. you can get PDAnet for a one time fee and tether without the $15 monthly from verizon. you can also tether via bluetooth with it. just don't let verizon know.

    From what I've been reading the connection speed is slower with PDANet, so I'd rather just pay $15/month.

    Anyway... is there anyway for me to not have to switch back and forth when connecting?
