Need phone number for Nokia CS-18 setup

I need to input the number that is dialed to connect to the internet using the Nokia CS-18 RocketStick.  Does anyone know what that is?

@kblenheim:

 

You ask for a number to be dialled to allow your Nokia CS-18 to connect to the Internet.  I would expect that your Nokia CS-18 would require only a SIM card to connect to the Internet.  I found documentation for it at this URL:

No phone number is required as far as I can tell, as your Nokia CS-18 will be connecting to the cell network for data purposes only.  You cannot use it for cellular telephone functions. As a result, there is no telephone number needed for, nor associated with, this kind of device.

 

You may need a PIN which I think should be provided to you by Rogers when your purchase the Nokia CS-18.

Anytime I have set up a manual DUN connection for a stick or phone I use *99#

@davidmc36:

 

your Nokia CS-18 does not function like "Dial Up Networking (DUN)".  It will connect directly to the cellular network without dialing any numbers.  The PIN is required, I think, as a form of authentication.

 

If you have not already done so, I strongly urge you to check out the Nokia CS-18 Getting Started document, the link for which I mentioned in my previous posting.
