I know there is about 1000 of these posts floating around, however, I got my blackberry to work as PAM by tweaking some settings manually in windows. My question is.......am I going to get a suprise bill at the end of the month for that.
I checked it out and figured that the phone doesn't show that it is connected to a laptop, I have the laptop dial #777 through the network dialup connection and can access the internet, so it doesn't look any different than if I was surfing the net with my Blackberry.
Anyone else tried this?
Just curious what happens when sprint notices the data usage has jumped up quite a bit.
When my smartview software was not working correctly, I was using PAM through the dial-up connection as well. The tech told me there is no difference in using the dial-up way or connecting through the smartview software. They are basically connecting the same way.
You shouldn't see a surprise charge on your bill.
As long as you have the correct data plan with the blackberry, you will not be charged extra whether you use smartview or #777. I used to use #777 for the longest time before smartview came out. If you did not have the PAM option you would be denied access with either of the 2 ways when trying to use PAM.
