Sony Ericsson P990 as GPRS Modem
Last night I needed to use my P990 as a Bluetooth modem for my laptop, something I’ve done many times before. Unfortunately, something had changed somewhere and whilst the connection was made, no data was received: problems! After some googling and not finding anything referring to Orange UK, I stumbled on a Vodafone item that suggested trying *99***5# instead of the normal *99# calling string (‘5’ is called the CID). After replacing the number with 1, 2, 3 & 4, 5 finally worked for me and the GPRS modem ran perfectly. Today I’m so much happier with the phone than I was yesterday. Small things, eh.
