    Treo 650 as a Mac modem.

    2 items:
    1.- Does anyone know how to use the Treo 650 as a modem with a Mac?
    2.- I have a .wma ringtone and would like to install it on my Treo 650 via my Mac. Any help out there.

    Ta,

    Owen.

    Wireless Modem is a prorgam to allow you to use the 650 as a mac modem. Alternatively, you can do it wirelessly using Bluetooth Dial-Up Networking if your Mac has bluetooth on it. I believe there are several threads discussing these options, you may wish to consult them for more details.

    Yes. there is a step by step process posted on how to use your 650 as a blue tooth modem. The link is on another thread (I would post it here but seem to have lost it).
    Two issues: First, you have to install a hack to allow your Blue tooth connection to allow network dial up. This is discussed elsewhere.
    The second issue is that the modem scripts listed in the step by step process never worked for me. The only script that worked was this one: 1_VZW_Generic_1X_ON_230400. Again, I have lost the link to that location.
    Perhaps I will find these an put them in one place somewhere here.
