    Re: Internet Via Bluetooth

    Hi,

    i`m new here and sorry for my bad english, i´m german.

    I want to try the same thing. I have done jet surfing with my Pearl if it was connected with by BES via cable.

    So i think there must be a way to do the same thing via bluetooth.

    Have anyone else done like that?

    ...

    It is possible on hardware side but due to limited software settings you can't do it.

    If for example you check this link http://www.whizoo.com/bt_setup/ for setup straight BT connection for Palm you will see that you need to type in IP address of your PC into your device.. and there is no any software settings for that in BB...

    I am facing to use "paid by amount of transfered data" plan soon too.. =( But after playing around with internet on Palm connected to PC via BT I decided that it is pretty much unuseful except may be experience of setting up connection...

    Right now the BB's does not support the DUN (dialup Networking) profile needed for the Phone to work as wireless modem via Bluetooth.

    As indicated before this limitation is more at software level than hardware.

    Sorry.

    I guess it is different stuff.. BB can be used as tethered modem (check topic sticked thread in Pearl section). In case we are discussing BB would use PC as a "BT modem"..

    They're right. I tried every which way I could think of to make this work today on my PC after installing a USB Bluetooth reciever. The Bluetooth works great, but no luck connecting the BB to the internet this way. I can send data packets it seems, but not recieve.

    Oh well...
