Anyone Connected Moto v120c to Notebook PC via USB?

Archived from groups: alt.cellular.motorola (More info?)

Trying to connect Moto v120c cell phone to Notebook PC running Windows
98SE via USB so PC dials through cell to connect to Verizon #777
Internet access.

Have not been able to get PC to "see" the Moto cell connected via
cable assy. to USB. Partial success once but then PC wanted to install
Motorola v120c "driver" but could not fins in any software (have tried
various Motorola software including: TrueSync, True Sync Plus,TrueSync
Upgrade) containing any such driver.

Has anyone accomplished this; if so, please advise how you did it?

Thanks.

    Well, PDA Man, I appreciate your input but I have already tried that
    group of drivers. In fact, I have tried a whole bunch of driver
    programs and "host" programs. Here is a list of programs I have tried
    so far with no success:
    USBSerial Converter.zip
    USBModem.zip
    MobilePhoneTools_216_US.exe
    mmpt_1.23c_EN.zip
    Q242004_98se-update.zip
    SERMOT.zip
    Motorola_USB_Modem_driver.zip
    P2K_driver.zip
    sync.zip
    TrueSyncPlus.zip
    taupgrade.zip - suggested by Motorola Customer Software support group
    usb-device-driver.zip

    As you can see the list is extensive. You will also note that I have
    had (extensive) conversation with Moto Customer support along with
    "try this" and 'try that", all to no avail.

    I'm wondering if there isn't something "funny" about this IBM ThinkPad
    600x model with regards to the USB port. I'm running Windows98SE which
    is supposed to "support" USB 1.0 but I can't seem to find anything in
    the IBM data about the USB port. Also I have a built-in modem which
    seems to "hang-up" all of the (noted above) programs when they
    "search" for the v120c phone connectsed via the USB port (the port
    does chagrge the phone through the cabl assy (CA) but does not connect
    it so i can dial out!)

    Do you know of any utility program which i can "see" the USB port and
    also identify what the applicable COM port (if there is one!)

    So any other suggestions would be appreciated; any URL where info is
    available is also welcomed.

    Oh, BTW I can dial-out through another CA connected to the serial (COM
    1) port so it WILL dial!


    John

    Are you sure that the v.120c will work like that? I use the v.120e and have
    no problems. You may need a phone upgrade...

    You may need to try another phone, I had problems with the v120c, I got the
    v120e and had no problems. It is used only as a modem and connects at 14.4k
    so its useful in a pinch. It is on an IBM 380XD and Win98 SE.
