quick2net

Hey all,

I used VZW quick2net for years after buying the mobile office kit for my V710.

However, I recently tried hooking my new KRZR up to my comp and dialing in. The mobile office software recognizes the phone, but when I try to connect, I get "error 691 - name and password do not authenticate".

I am using the following:
WinXP
Verizon Moto KRZR
Number: #777
Name: qnc
Pass: qnc

Does quick2net still work for anyone? Can anyone else help me? Thanks!

It works. I use it on my Samsung i730. But for some reason last night and for a good part of the day today I got a connection error message. Just tried it now and it works, but now I have a reason why not to have Quick2Net: If you need e-mail and Internet for work, don't use Quick2Net. It's unreliable.

I'm just glad it came back on though. I was almost at the point of tears last night when I thought they weren't allowing it anymore.

the krzr is broadband access connect only. No more using minutes, have to buy the plan, free for the first month though, and tons faster than you had.

there is probably some way to rig it to work, but it isn't supposed to work.

Thanks so much. That explains it.

Do you have a link to a page that describes which phones do and don't work for Quick2Net? Do all modern phones no longer support quick2net?

I don't have a link so much. All you do is look for phones that don't support VCast AND you can find a mobile office kit/data cable for.

moto 325, lg 5300, are just a few

if you can find one that has the same kind of plug as a music cable phone (ex lg 5300 has same adapter as lg 8300) then you can buy the music kit for $30 and just use the cable, otherwise you're buying the mobile office kit for $40.

if you have some time to kill you can always hit up ebay for a $5 cable, but buyer beware
