    Using 8100 as a modem for a Windows Mobile PDA

    Advertisement



    I've tried everything I can think of, used all sorts of different strings, and tried different settings, but I still can't use my bb as a modem for my PDA. I think it has something to do with the PDA needing to detect a running modem service on the phone before it will attempt anything. Anyone know of a way that I can run the service, instead of it needing to be triggered by a connection attempt that I can't convince the PDA to try?

    Hello Mulder and Welcome to the Stacks. Unfortunately, you can not use your Blackberry as a tethered modem for another PDA.

    ... maybe I should have been more specific. A bluetooth modem. Not a normal USB one, that would have been easy

    Unfortunately, that won't work either.

    If I am wrong, someone will be along to correct me.

    Ljbyar is right, u cannot use your pearl as a modem with another PDA even if it's bluetooth modem.

    As far as I know u can only use pearl as modem for your PC or laptop
