MPT V5 Communicate Wireless Internet Dial-Up

Another great feature of the Motorola Phone Tools software is that it will enable you to use your phone as a modem for connecting to the Internet. Depending on your phone and your plan, you may be able to connect to the CDMA, GSM, GPRS, EDGE, or 3G networks to get broadband speeds through your Motorola Phone -- although charges might apply, so make sure to check out your plan.

This is the description from the help:

With the Internet option, you can connect to the Internet using your phone. To perform this feature, your phone has to be connected and turned on.

Within the Internet Connection Manager window, you can also:
Manage your connections (create, delete or edit your connections).
View in real time the connection information (Operator, Network, Connection time, Data received or sent).
View your connection logs.


This guide will help you go through the process of setting up the Wireless Internet Connection so that you can use it. Here is the step-by-step guide on how to set it up for your phone.

1. Under the Communicate tab on the left hand side of the screen, click on the Internet link at the bottom to open the Internet Connection Manager in MPT.

I installed MPT 4.(something) (something) because I installed and upgraded once....

I was able to edit my phonebook Phone AND SIM entries, (view and save to the SIM)

I noticed later on your site MPT 5 was out, so hit live update a few more times until it said no more updates...
now I notice that when I goto phonebook it only says "Reading from Phone" and never does the "Reading from SIM"

I cannot seem to find a setting to get back at my SIM card... is there one?

(I also uninstalled and went back to 4.x and upgraded as far as I could without going to MPT5, (I still cannot get at the SIM)

So unless there's a magical way to get MPT 5 to read the SIM (phone storage setting or something I am unaware of) I guess I will be installing the lowest MPT 4.x and upgrading one version at a time until I see which has, and which looses the SIM editing features...

It really sucks they would take it out...
