Using E815 as USB modem in Linux (ubuntu)
I figured out how to use the E815 as a USB modem in linux :D
Okay, open a terminal with the phone NOT plugged into the computer
$ cat /proc/bus/usb/devices > devices
Now plug in your card
$ diff /proc/bus/usb/devices devices | grep Vendor < P: Vendor=22b8 ProdID=2a62 Rev= 0.01
That’s the vendor and product of your phone.
$ modprobe usbserial vendor=22b8 product=2a62
Remember to change your vendor and product to what you saw before
Now to check if it worked:
$ ls /dev/ttyACM0 /dev/ttyACM0
If it looks like that, excellent. If not, you’ve got some issues.
Now creat a script in /etc/ppp/peers/1xevdo:
ttyACM0 115200 debug noauth defaultroute usepeerdns connect-delay 10000 user (your 10 digit phone number)@vzw3g.com show-password crtscts lock lcp-echo-failure 4 lcp-echo-interval 65535 connect '/usr/sbin/chat -v -t3 -f /etc/ppp/peers/1xevdo_chat'
Now make /etc/ppp/peers/1xevdo_chat:
'' 'AT' 'OK' 'ATE0V1&F&D2&C1&C2S0=0' 'OK' 'ATE0V1' 'OK' 'ATS7=60' 'OK' 'ATDT#777'
And finally, open /etc/ppp/pap-secrets and add:
(your 10 digit phone number)@vzw3g.com * vzw
Now we are ready to try to connect. Type;
$ pppd call 1xevdo $ tail -f /var/log/messages
Watch it for a bit, you should see your IP and some DNS server’s IPs pop up, if so you are succesful!
Using E815 as bluetooth modem in OSX86 10.4.4
This is probably more of a discovery than anything else, but I am able to use my E815 as a bluetooth modem on my intel OSX86 install. In fact, this version of OSX, its the only way I can actually connect to the internet.
Compaq nc6230 (1.86 ghz centrino, 1GB Ram, built in bluetooth)
If you search the torrent sites, you can probably find a osx86 bootable 10.4.4 DVD. This is what Im using.
1) The bluetooth module in my computer was automatically recognized, which was great. I clicked on the bluetooth symbol in the upper right, or you can go to "System Preferences --> Bluetooth"
2) Pair your device, you do this by following their on screen instructions. Its very straight forward.
3) I was unable to use isnyc to sync my contacts and my calender. But, I was able to set up my phone as my modem, as I mentioned.
4) Set the phone number as #777 (no username or password are required).
5) You will see PPP TCP/IP, Proxies, and Bluetooth Modem in the Network Settings for this device.
6) Click on Bluetooth Modem, and you must select the "au cdmaOne Bluetooth Adapter" as your modem type.
7) Uncheck wait for dialtone before dialing.
8) Your done.
NOTE: The modem would drop a connection fairly quickly if you were not actively using the internet. So, what I did was open a terminal window, and used a ping setting simmilar to this: "ping -i 30 -s 0 www.yahoo.com". This will send 0 packets every thirty seconds to yahoo.com, thus convincing your modem that you are still actively using it. I've been connected 24 minutes so far!
