Since you are on Sprint, I am afraid it will cost you. The Plan is called PAM or Phone as a Modem. Last I heard it was a $40.00 extra to use this feature (unlimited). Sorry to bring bad news.....

No, actually by using this product or PDA Net you will avoid the Sprint monthly tethering fee. If you tether using Sprint's procedures/software, then you will have to pay the $40/mo. Therefore, the product pays for itself within the first month of use.

Palm Centro as a modem- stream video?

lbk30316 @ 12/30/2008 8:50:20 AM # Q
I have only tried the trial version of a couple of theses programs, but am unable to stream video on my laptop when I use my centro as a tethered modem. Am I doing something wrong or is it just not capable of this (I can stream on my actual phone?). Thanks :) Lisa

Palm Centro as a modem with Vista 64 bit

KathyJud @ 1/18/2009 7:37:39 PM # Q
Will this software work on a Windows Vista 64 bit computer? I have a Sprint based Palm Centro and the software driver for the Hot Sync manager won't work on a Vista 64 bit system laptop-Sony Vaio. I want to try this software for the USB Modem for Palm OS if it will work on 64 bit Vista.

More on Palm Centro as Modem

I was able to get the Hot Sync connected by using BlueTooth through help from the Palm online chat help. Now I will try to download this USB software to use the Palm Centro as a modem and try to bypass using Sprint. How do I bypass using Sprint and avoid signing up for the $40 a month service. How do I sign on using the USB modem software?

I had this installed on my Win Vista notebook 32-bit configuration using Treo 800w through Sprint. There were no issues with using PDANet, it was completely free, no tethering fee with this software. You can download the Palm / Win Mobile version here.

The problem I have now is that I just swapped the laptop for a Dell 64-bit Win Vista setup. The PDANet installer wouldn't complete, through up a 64 bit error. Urrgghghghgh

Any ideas?
