The following is a list of phones that are compatible with using QNC and/or dial-up on Page Plus - two unmetered (free) data services that are not officially supported by Page Plus. These legacy services are theoretically capable of up to 14.4 Kbps, but the actual through-put can be much lower (e.g., 10 Kbps). The slow speed is marginally adequate for e-mail, light web browsing, and Google Maps Mobile - this limitation tends to discourage heavy use.

When available, QNC (Quick Net Connect) is preferable to dial-up, because QNC does not use analog modems to support the connection.

These services are occasionally used on PP for tethering (connecting a laptop to the Internet by using the phone as a modem), because current PP high-speed data rates are too expensive for this purpose. To make laptop browsing feasible at such low speed, Opera Mini, a Java phone browser which pulls data from band-width reducing proxy servers, can be run full screen on the laptop. (Opera Mini can also be used to minimize data charges when tethering at high speed.) Opera Mini full-screen techniques and tweaks, Lars Kleinschmidt blog

HTC

PPC6700

Here is the procedure taken from Fixup's thread:

1) Hard reset your XV6700 and prevent Verizon customization. Hold both left and right soft keys and push the reset hole. After screen digitizer initialization and as soon as you see "wait 3 seconds to install Verizon craps", hit the reset hole immediately. Once the VZ craps got into your xv6700, it'll be a slow crap and don't waste your time to go to the next steps.

I was informed the previous step can be skipped. I recommend trying skipping step 1 if you have data you need to keep.

2) Follow this to get QPST working with XV6700:

3) Once you are in QPST service programming, do these changes:

M.IP, simple ip only Data, MDR mode - no mdr, service opt - pre 707, data QNC - checked,

4) Add a new connection on your XV6700 to dial #777, qnc as username and password. Nothing special here.

Done and enjoy free Internet on a very powerful phone. As always, get Opera Mini and Gmail J2ME that works amazingly fast with the slow QNC.

Kyocera

Kyocera KX12 (unbranded)

Information taken from a post by JOET1966 QNC...Phones that will work well using this feature.
This is a direct quote modified by pc-tech101
"Kyocera KX12 to recieve QNC using this method. I started out with entering six ones in a row. Then selected options, service, then browser setup.

On the web page it mentioned a Gateway IP 1 and to enter the Google IP address ...www.google.com. On my Kyocera KX12 it didn't have this setting but it had this for a option.

UP. Link A Primary DNS________ Primary Port________

Secondary DNS_________ Secondary Port________

It also had a UP. Link B with the same options as UP. Link A.

What I did was put the Google IP address www.google.com in the area it had the setting for Primary DNS. In the area it had the setting for Primary Port I put the number 80. I left the settings for the Secondary DNS and the Secondary Port blank. I am not sure what these are for. I also left the settings for the UP.LINK B blank. not sure what their function is.

After I put in these settings in my (unbranded) Kyocera KX12 I restarted the phone and went to connect to the internet and to my suprise it worked.

Logged onto Page Plus website with my Kyocera KX12 ."

Motorola Generic QNC Instructions

Motorola Generic QNC Instructions

Motorola's seem fairly easy. Using "RSD CDMA General 5.2.9" in Mobile IP. Set to Simple IP. In RTT enable QNC. Enter #0SETUP* MSL/SPC, goto Data Rates and set to 14.4. In RSD I think RTT section, in PPP username and password are qnc. I might have a typo or be forgetting something. You might need to edit SEEM 275a, 00f5, uncheck all the bits to force QNC.

To get 'Data Connection' under the Security menu: Edit seem 2742 offset 6A check bit 3 (as noted in Fixup's PP Step by Step post)

To get 'Web Sessions' under the Programming menu (#073887*): Edit seem 2742 offset 18 check bit 5

a855 (Verizon Motorola Droid)

Go into The phone app and type "##7764726 (##program)" and it will ask you for a spc password which is "000000" and then hit verify NOw find 05 Data Rates and click on it and then press the button that says "Data Rates" Now 153.6/9.6 should be the default selected and change that to 14.4/14.4 Then press apply Now exit to the home screen and the phone will automatically restart and voila if done correctly you will now have QNC instead of EV-DO. This needs a better explanation. Does the phone need to be rooted?

    • The above tutorial will NOT WORK!**
      • The steps below will get the '14.4/14.4' setting to stick and not revert. Although data still doesn't connect. I don't think root is necessary, but I am rooted and on a custom rom. ***

1. Turn off you're DROID. 2. Slide open the Keyboard and hold 'T'(Keep holding until you get to the phones lockscreen! This will boot into diagnostic mode.) and power the phone on. 3. I will not explain this fully, this is only for people that know how to use QPST. Once in QPST go to the 'M.I.P' tab and change the 'Mobile IP Behavior' to 'Simply IP only'. Write to you're phone. It shall reboot, if not reboot you'reself. 4. Follow the tutorial above mine. These steps must be done prior to the above.

===This is where I am stuck. Data is stuck on connecting.

e815 (Verizon)

E815 Quick start guide: http://www.howardforums.com/showthread.php?t=674803 But also review Mark Venture site (below).

Q (Verizon)

Use QPST, Service Programming, change mobile IP mode to “Simple IP” only. Dial ##073887*, 000000, change data rate to 14.4k/14.4k. This will force the phone to use QNC. There is a thread on www dot mobile-file dot com on how to use QPST with Q.

On your Q, use File Manager to copy \windows\connectcdma.cpl.xml to \My Documents, then connect your Q to your PC, copy this file to your PC. Edit this file with Notepad to make it look like this:

<stinger-controlpanel-doc>
<cpl-title res="30068"/>
<menu clsid="{C11412F5-FED9-43F4-B4D8-EA34B082FE40}" />
<cpl-link href="beam.cpl.xml" res="30065"/>
<!-- -->
<cpl-link clsid="{C0DE0D6A-3142-4b68-A393-E85B41BCE967}"/>
<!-- -->
<cpl-link clsid="{074C4891-BF80-49b3-B9E3-3F10ABA95B61}"/>
<cpl-link clsid="***0106A75-0992-4ae8-B69D-DFEE49A15134}"/>
<cpl-link clsid="{DBD9C7C1-777E-4d2e-925E-B3E5B00CB1D1}"/>
<cpl-link href="pcconnection.cpl.xml" res="30070"/>
<!-- -->
<cpl-link href="incomingcall.cpl.xml">
<title lang="0x0409">Incoming Call</title>
</cpl-link>
<!-- -->
</stinger-controlpanel-doc>''

Basically you unmark all the marked lines “<!-- … -->”.

Then save this file and copy it back to your phone \My Documents. Then on your phone, use File Manager to copy it back to \Windows. Now if you open Settings, Connections, you’ll see “Dial-up” menu which was hidden before. In this menu, make all of them not to “Connects to: Internet” (change to Work, WAP or Secure WAP Network). Then add a new dial-up for QNC: Connects to: Internet, phone number: #777, User Name: qnc, Password: qnc.

Now, fire up the Internet Explorer on your Q and you should be able to open any web site. Email will work too including push.

PN-820

Taken from ZipXaviers post

Here's what you need

QPST 2.7 (I used Build 215 and 301)
PN-820 Modem Drivers
USB Cable (LG VX8300 Cable will work)

Let's start with your phone.
From the start menu, go to settings and then connections.
Select Modem Link, and change the setting to active.
Plug in the USB cable and direct it to the extracted folder of the drivers that I mentioned above and it should go through three seperate devices before it completes.


Now start up QPST Configuration and select Add New Port.
Choose the USB/QC Diagnostic port on whichever COM it has been set to.
Select OK and it should show up as a SURF6100-ZRF6155.
Now choose Start Clients from the top menu and select Service Programming.
Under Select an Active Phone, the SURF6100 should be there, if not, check all of the steps above as there is a problem.
Now hit OK.
Click Read From Phone in the bottom left and the Programming Code is 000000.
Before doing ANYTHING at this point, save your phone's programming to a file for backup incase you change the wrong setting or your phone sets on fire, etc.
Hit the System tab and change the Preferred Mode to CDMA only.
Then go to the Data tab, and change MDR Mode to No MDR, Service Option to IS-707 and check the Data QNC box.
Then proceed to the M.IP tab and change Mobile IP Behavior to Simple IP only.
Finally, go to PPP Config and uncheck PPP Detect in the bottom right corner.

Click Write to Phone and now your phone is set for QNC goodness.


The only thing you have to do after this is create a Connection on the phone for QNC, here's how.
Go to the Start Menu, Connections, Dial Up, press Menu and then Add

Connects to needs to be set to the Internet
Phone Number is #777
Username and password is qnc
After you hit done, go back to the connections screen, select menu then advanced and change Internet Connection from Automatic to the QNC profile you just created.


I sucessfully tethered via USB to my PC with Windows XP by creating a new dial up connection using the Pantech Smartphone COM used before by QPST.

Simply set it as a dial up modem, phone number #777, user/pass qnc and you're good to Opera Mini all day long for free.


Palm

Treo 600/650/700p/755p

QNC

The instructions below can be found in many places on the web, however,this procedure currently does NOT work for the Verizon 650 or 700p or 755p - and is likely to initiate a 1xRTT or EVDO connection instead, at up to $1.20 / MB. QNC seems to have been disabled for these models, and apparently cannot be re-enabled using QPST. This may also be true for other Treo/Centro models.

per this post...

'Preferences|Network' 
Service: name it whatever you like 
Connection: Virtual Modem 
User Name: qnc 
Password: qnc 
Phone: #777

'Preferences|Network|Details'
Idle timeout: 2 Minutes 

'Preferences|Network|Details|Advanced'
IP Address: check Automatic 
Query DNS: check 

'Preferences|Network|Details|Advanced|Script'
Send: at$qcmdr=2 
Send CR: 
Send: at$qcqnc=1 
Send CR: 
End 

Then click [ok] until you return to the network page and click [connect] to dial out.

See caution above !

Dial-up and Tethering

Unlike QNC, dial-up does work on the Treo 650 and 700p, and tethering is possible.

On the Verizon 650, Bluetooth tethering has been disabled in firmware, and for the current firmware, no hack is available to re-enable it (as of 11/09). USB tethering on this model is possible only via commercial software, USBModem (Mobile Stream) and PdaNet (June Fabrics). Based on limited trial period testing at low-speed only, one user reports that connections via USBModem require less battery power, but PdaNet connections are more stable. (The trial period for PdaNet may be much shorter than advertised.)

On the Verizon 700p, tethering is supported, and commercial solutions are not needed. One official method is via the VZAccess Manager (not tested as of 9/09).

For USB tethering on Verizon 700p, the modem-driver component, Palm Tether (June Fabrics), can be downloaded from the VZAM site and used separately. Note that this USB Palm Tether (and VZAM) requires at least v4.2 of Palm Desktop - later versions drop support for several handset calendar features. Tested at low speed, the driver reported 2.4 Mbs - but the actual speed, as expected, was appx. 10 Kbs. To make laptop browsing feasible at such low speed, Opera Mini, a Java phone browser which pulls data from band-width reducing proxy servers, can be run full screen on the laptop. (see below)

For BT tethering on Verizon 700p, the necessary drivers are already included with XP. Unlike previous Treo models, the handset BT preference screen does not have or need a option to enable/disable DUN.

For broadband tethering (BT or USB), you will need to bypass the Verizon provisioning system, by altering the phone configuration file, nvm_palm0. Using a hex editor, replace the string 'your10digit#@DUN.vzw3g.com' with 'your10digit#@vzw3g.com'. (The string occurs in several locations.) A hex editor must be used because the setting cannot be altered via QPST Service Programming.

The same Network Preference dial-up connection can be swapped between Broadband Access or true dial-up, simply by changing the dialing number. Substitute #777 to activate broadband - no need to remove the user name and password, because broadband will ignore it.

Opera Mini

WEME Java support for Palm OS is no longer under development, and cannot be obtained directly from Palm. However, copies can be found on the web. The last version is commonly referred to as "JVM 5.7.2," but a handset will report "j9 2.2.14 ARM". For running Opera Mini on Treo, JVM configuration settings can be critical - particularly a 32 Kb thread stack. The 650 seems to work best with 1 MB maximum memory, but 700p can handle at least 4 MB. Treo does not support Opera Mini 5 - use 4.2 instead.
