 How to: Pocket PC 2002
   
Use the directions below to create a dial-up connection for the
Pocket PC 2002 operating system.
 
1]

Tap Start, then Settings, then Connections (at the bottom). Tap the Connections icon.

 

2]

In the top box, choose Internet Settings. Tap Modify. Under Create a Connection, tap New...

Note: If your modem isn't inserted, insert it now.
 

3]

Under Enter a name for the connection..., type in BAMnet. Under Select a Modem, choose the modem that's installed in your Pocket PC. Under Baud Rate, choose 57600. Tap Next to continue. 

4]

Enter Country code (for U.S., enter 1), Area Code, and Phone number. Tap Next to continue. The final screen should be left alone, so tap Finish.

Visit our Dial-Up Number page and choose your desired dialup number.

Notes: If dialing our U.S. 1-800 modem number, enter 800 as the area code, then 737-7530 as the telephone number. If dialing one of our non-800 style numbers (see list), use the calling format that works for the area you are in. For example, if no area code is required when dialing, you might only need XXX-XXXX as the number to dial. Each country/state have their own calling formats. For more information on calling patterns including access from Hotels, visit our Helpful Tips section in the upper right corner of this page.
 

5]

At the Internet Settings screen, tap and hold the word "BAMnet" until it gives you the option to Delete or Connect. Tap Connect.
 

6]

Enter your User name and password. Add "@bamnet" to the end of your user name. For example username@bamnet. Important: do not add ".com" to the end of @bamnet - this will not work! Tap the box for Save password. Tap OK to dial BAMnet.

Where do I find the BAMnet connection?

Tap Start, Settings,Connections (tab), and Connections (icon). Tap Connect. The Resource should be "BAMnet". If so, enter your User name/password and tap OK to connect to BAMnet.

If you choose to use one of the preset "Work" settings, or other presets that add unwanted characters to the dial string (i.e. 9,001800-737-7530) which will not work, you might need to swich back to "local" mode in order for your connection to work. However, if you need to make edits to how your device dials (i.e. adding a 9, or other outside line digits), while in the Connections window, click Dialing Locations from the bottom, click Dialing Patterns to edit dial string patterns.

Once connected, always remember to disconnect when finished using the Internet!


   

What do I do now? Upon a successful modem connection, open the built-in Internet browser, or configure your device for email, and start using the Internet. When finished browsing, please remember to disconnect from BAMnet.
