mobile phone laptop cars? AlphaCOM rolling over in grave

AlphaCOM, pioneers of mobile PCMCIA cards, rolls eyes over “new” mobile phone company’s laptop cards.  It was cool at 1997 COMDEX.  19.2k with LOTS of compression?  Remember when I suggested bonding multiple cards TEN YEARS AGO?  Bonding isn’t new, but its time has come again.  Most laptops have two PCMCIA slots.  2x broadband > 1x broadband

But $49 is better than the $600 I spent four years ago testing cards from VerizonEvil Wireless and AT&T.  I had a less unpleasant experience tethering my laptop to my moto.

how to refresh new ringtones list on e815: OBEX transfer, or USB cable transfer

1) transfer new MP3 or MIDI ringtones to phone via OBEX transfer or via USB cable transfer
2) connect to phone via USB cable:
a) start PST 7.2.3
b1) rename the first exe in P2Kcommander to ext
b2) start P2Kcommander 3.3.0
3) browse to root of phone (/a/)
4) delete mytun*.*
a) this should be TWO files
5) disconnect phone
6) power off phone
7) remove battery for five seconds, reconnect battery, power on phone

VIOLA! sounds are now listed BOTH in media manager and in Ringtone details. No more need to reset phone entirely.


The downside is that ALL your contact-ringtone settings get mixed up. So you “get to” fix each one by hand. But this is a small irratation to suffer to avoid the other vexation of ghost files.

using gps features on e815 no hack


4771 stands for GPS1

and then it asks for an SPC code… enter


these steps will take you to the gpsOne menu, and modify the settings in the settings menu by

changing the lock status [3] to off, test mode [4] to off, sample count [5] to 1, and transport type [6] to DBM.

You can’t change the IP address or the IP port [without a SEEM edit]. In the GPS test menu, you don’t need the start application function either. All you need is the ‘Last Location’ function.

Make sure your phone is enabled to use the GPS function, not just the E911 function. [073887]
Press end to clear out back to the start screen

Dial 922 and stay on the line until some gibberish starts coming out of
the phone. * hang up, you need not stay on the line after that.

go back into the GPS menu and press last location. BOOM. There are your
Longitude and Latitude coordinates. Go to mapquest and enter your
coordinates here:

* IMPORTANT: in some areas dialing 922 MIGHT connect you to emergency services. Do not hang up on them; instead POLITELY and PROFUSELY apologize explaining the number you did dial.

Once someone figures out how to sign BREW applications I imagine there will be some lovely homebrewbrew brewhaha (puns intended). Homebrewbrew GPS mapping software… better than Get It Now NAVItime. Since QPST, PST, et al are already pirated… its just the next step to pirate the software for signing applications 😉

Remember.. its not wrong to lie- or steal from- verizon.

preventing verizon from programming your e815 OTA

SPC: Allows you to define or change the Subsidy Lock Code. Leave this at 000000 if you want to be able to use Verizon’s OTA.

SPC Overwrite: Determines whether you want the carrier to be able to
change your subsidy lock via OTA programming. If you want to be able to
continue accessing these menus, I suggest setting it to “Forbid.”

Hacking the Motorola E815

Filed under: Motorola e815 hacking,News and Announcements — Sagacious Himself @ 6:00 pm

When you entered ##DIALUP on the phone, it did say “dialup enabled” or
something like that, right? I also use BlueSoleil, with a Trendnet
bluetooth dongle. I usually have no trouble, though sometimes if I’ve
been messing with settings on the phone, I have to turn the phone off
and on and then doubleclick on the phone icon in BlueSoleil again to
get the box around the DUN symbol. If you get it working you will see
that it supplies a weird dialup number, *99***1# (which is an industry
default GPRS dialup number). I don’t need a username or password with
that number, but maybe that’s because I have Vcast.

Another thing I remember reading is that sometimes if you don’t have
Vcast on an e815, Verizon mistakenly turn off all your data services.
You can tell if this is so because Get It Now won’t work. You can call
them up and say “my Get It Now isn’t working” and they will probably
activate some sort of data service for you for free.

As to the DUN charges, without Vcast you will be charged minutes at
least, and if they figure out you are tethering they may charge you
$0.002 per kbyte or something egregious like that. Vcast is kind of a
shield in that it makes it very hard for them to tell you’re tethering,
unless you do it excessively, plus you aren’t charged for minutes.

There is a seem edit to make your phone always identify iself as e815m.
It is seem 2827, record 1, length 22, offset 0008, enable bits 0-2-3-6.
This was previously reported somewhere else on howardforums.
