My 6820 is working beautifully as a GPRS modem on the Cingular network
but I want to connect it to my regular ISP as a normal modem using
Dial-Up Networking and their access numbers. I want to use my cell
minutes rather than my limited and expensive data plan. Not to mention
this would give me greater range in areas where there is no GPRS yet.

When I try to use my XP laptop to dial my ISP's phone number, the
Bluetooth switches on and the phone shows it is dialing the number. I
then get a tone like I dialed a non-working number. If I dial the
number through the phone manually I hear the handshake. I've tried 3
different numbers.

I used the Nokia Bluetooth modem driver for this phone and the one
built into Windows. Modem diagnostics show all of the AT commands and
proper responses.

Can I use this phone as an ordinary modem? Or must I only use it for
GPRS?

Harry from Nokia helped me out here. He affirmed that the 6820 does
indeed offer this feature; he helped me understand that what I was
trying to do was use CS data (CSD). Once I understood that I knew what
question to ask Cingular.

Cingular has disabled all CSD and expects that everyone will be using
GPRS to get online. This is a bummer because it forces me to use more
expensive but faster kilobytes from my data plan and not less expensive
but slower minutes from my voice plan. Not to mention -- is GPRS
available all over their network? What if I'm on another network? I
hope these issues never come up.
