    How to setup Bluetooth DUN on Sprint 8830

    Advertisement



    A couple of people asked for these steps on how to setup Bluetooth DUN:

    1. First make sure that you can sync via BT through Desktop manager and that you have the latest version (mine is 4.2.2.12). If you can't sync via BT then search the forums as there are numerous posts on that.

    2. Desktop Manager doesn't have to be running but I think Device Manager does so I let Device Manager start and run in the background upon boot up. There is an option in Device Manager to start it on system startup.

    3. Once BT is successfully paired with your comp and syncing, open Network Connections and select File...New connection. When the Wizard starts select "connect to internet" then "set up manually" then "conect using dial up modem."

    4. Once this is selected, in the list of modems you should find a modem that says something like "Standard Modem over Bluetooth Link" - select this and type in what you want to call it.

    5. The phone number is #777

    6. Leave the user name and password blank, uncheck the "make this the default connection" box (unless this is your default connection of course).

    7. Check the "Add a shortcut" box if you want then when the dialog box comes up select properties...options

    8. Uncheck the prompt for username and password boxes. I set the redial to 3 attempts, 5 seconds, and 10 minute idle.

    9. Go to the "General" tab and click "Configure", under maximum speed select 921600 and uncheck any "hardware features."

    10. Click OK and it should dial and a status icon should show up in the tray, you can click it to see that it is up and sending/receiving data.

    Any questions PM me, I hope this helps.

    I just did it on my Sprint 8830, worked perfectly. I am running it on a Dell Inspiron E1405 with built in bluetooth.

    Did any of you update to a different OS?

    Same notebook for me, no go.

    How fast can you get over BT? And why would you not just teather the phone to your pc?

    Again no go even with nan's help. Only difference is Im on Vista...

    Speed with BT is slower than speed when connected, usb enhances speed.

    Not everyone carries their cable with them, so that is why I want it, plus it is human nature to love options.

    Must be Vista that is the problem. Yes for quick surfing it's great to not have to break out the usb cord. Speeds are slower but not bad for basic stuff.

    Running 32-bit Vista Ultimate and I don't even get the Standard Modem option. I've tried adding it by pointing to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Modem Drivers and still no go. Can't tether via USB or Bluetooth. Repaired, uninstalled and reinstalled the RIM software numerous times and still no standard modem. Dell E1405 laptop with built-in bluetooth.

    Great! This works for VZW as well. I wonder if I can drop the tethered modem fee? Just did a bandwidth test and 300kbps isn't bad for a BT DUN connection.
