Hi, I have a Sanyo 8200 since Windows 95 - been connected as a composite device/modem. I can create a dial up instance and use it to access Internet as a modem - not very fast, but quite reliable.

I'm looking for drivers and modem support for Windows 7 for a Sprint Sanyo 8200 (32 or 64 bit, haven't bought the machine yet). I can get the XP driver to be recognized, but the modem wizard doesn't see it.

thank you. /Stu

I don't know if this will help, but here's my solution for connecting a Sprint Intercept to my Toshiba Satellite A665 laptop. Since the intercept is a android phone i use Pda-Net to connect. With win 7 on this new laptop it would not connect at all. After trying everything i possibly could, my last resort was to go ahead and download a older XP version of Pda-Net. Messing with the setting a bit now lets me connect everytime. I did not have to set windows 7 to compatibility mode for the phone Pda-Net drivers, it just worked after turning on USB debugging.

Perhaps you can still use the XP drivers for your phone. It doesn't hurt to try figuring it out.

I think I successfully loaded the XP driver for the phone. Windows 7 recognizes the device and "installs" it when I plug it into a USB port.

Unfortunately, as with your device, there seems to be 2 steps. First is the driver install - I can't be sure, but it may be OK.

The second is creating a modem/dial "thing" to associate the phone number. #777, with the device. Under XP, the modem wizard recognizes the "composite device" and creates the dial thing.

Under Windows 7, the wizard doesn't see the device as a modem - and I don't know how to give the attribute of "modemness" to the device.

Also, I can't find anything called "USB Debug"?????
