How Do I Use My SGH-i627 (Propel Pro) As A Modem Or Transfer Data Between It And My Computer?

ActiveSync/Windows Mobile Device Center must be installed and setup properly to use it as a tethered modem. As a means of connectivity, it loads RNDIS. This driver assists in the usage of the device as an external modem. Earlier versions of ActiveSync do not support this new configuration so subsequently; the function is not operational on them. There are other configurable options that are required to set this up however they will need to supported through AT&T, (data plan required, usage of their data kit, etc…).
Bluetooth Modem (DUN/PAN) - The BlackJack II does have Bluetooth 2.0 w/EDR.
As a result, the DUN/PAN profile can be utilized when a successfully Bluetooth connection to a computer has been established. It is important to note that different Bluetooth vendor require different drivers to operate different profiles. Please consult with the vendor for proper Bluetooth driver configuration on the PC if there are difficulties. Since the ICS client is not accessible by default, this method of connectivity is unsupported by Samsung.
