Connecting to the Internet Over Cellular
It is highly recommended that you connect to your Internet provider using a
landline connection. Most Internet providers are not set up to support and
maintain a cellular connection.
If you need to connect to an Internet provider with a cellular phone system,
contact your local carrier to see if they provide a cellular modem pool (usually by
dialing *DATA (*3282) before the number you are dialing).
If so, follow your carrier's instructions for connecting with the modem pool.
Contact your Internet provider through the modem pool.
If not, carefully follow the recommended procedures to connect your cellular
phone to the modem.
Cellular dialing functions work the same as landline functions

fewer or more commas, depending on your system. Each comma represents a
two-second delay), an exclamation point, then the PIN number. For example, if
your PIN number is 1234, enter
Enter these numbers into a dialing directory the same way as they are shown
When the modem connection has been established using the default protocols,
the protocol message will be LAP-M-EC, indicating the modem is using LAP-M
error correction and MNP10-EC cellular enhancements.
