When you plug your phone into the computer, it'll recongize the device as "SAMSUNG CDMA Technologies" and windows wont have any luck finding the appropriate driver for it. I tried several drivers for different samsung phones, before I found this one that works
Leave it to SPRINT to supply us Bell Mobility customers with a good driver
Choose your version of windows (who knows, maybe this works for other versions of windows as well!
One of the items in the list will be "Sprint PCS Connection Manager for Phone as Modem/USB Cables". It is 26MB and the version as of writing this is 3.07.040
First, make sure your phone is NOT plugged in to the computer (I did say it was impossible to fuck up your phone doing this, didnt I?)
Download the driver to your system, and install it, reboot your computer just for kicks
Now when you plugin your phone, watch the little "new hardware found" bubbles, and it'll flash through a bunch of different stuff, adding the modems and whatnot. Go into your Device Manager, on my system, I ended up with "Ports (COM & LPT)" -> "SAMSUNG Mobile Modem Diagnostic Serial Port (WDM) (COM5)", and "Modems" -> "SAMSUNG Mobile Modem".
