    Yes, it is very possible, i have been using it as a bluetooth modem for a while now and works great. not sure about how you would configure vista, but for my MacBook Pro i had to download modem scripts (you can find them if you search forums) and then it worked like a charm.

    Not with Vista to my knowledgee as the drivers don't exist yet. We are hoping that they will show up soon (at least with the next SP). I have been trying with my HP running Vista Home Premuim and have yet to make it work. The upside is that you can get it to work tethered with the USB cable (just haven't gotten the tethering to work over BT, syncing can be done, just not tethering yet until the drivers surface). It does work in XP (although I knwo that is no concellation).

    it does not have to be bluetooth exactly it can be a tethered modem to. i keep searching and all i see is guides for xp and not vista. so if anyone knows a guide that worked for them on getting there 8300 with cingular to work on a vista laptop please post it.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~I got the one posted for the xp on here to work for my laptop while tethered through USB and using Vista. The only thing is that unless you have the tethering option on AT$T you will more than likely never get it to work as they block it unless you have that option(a few have gotten lucky, but I could never get it to work with AT$T but no probs with T-Mo). Just make sure that you enter the AT commands as they are posted and you should be golden. Let me know if you can't find the link and I will try to get it to you when I get on a real PC, as too hard with to do from the BB.
