Default Bluetooth Tether to Palm

Please Login to Remove!

Had anyone ever successfully tethered a blackberry (pearl) of any kind to a Palm pda. i have made many concerted efforts only to come up short lol. Usually just stops at dialing, and never starts the phones data connection or authenticates.

Simple enough answer. Clear and concise lol. As much as I love my crackberry...sometimes I am tempted over to the darker sides like just getting a regular phone+pda/n800/etc and just tethering for everything. I have a old Palm T3 collecting dust because since I switched to blackberries I had no way to get web through it.

I'm not sure what John means by "It won't work", but I've been able to pair my Palm T3 with my BlackBerry 8830 over Bluetooth. Now, it successfully uses the 8830 in Phone as Modem mode on Sprint's network. Works fine for getting web access on my T3. Is that what you're trying to accomplish?

If it is indeed what you want to do, my first recommendation is to make sure PAM mode works on a normal laptop first, with your carrier. It didn't for me, and I had to call Sprint Tech Support to get them to enable it. Once the USB tethered laptop was working, I tackled the Palm to BB challenge. I don't want to write up a bunch of useless info if this isn't what you're trying to do, so let me know if you need more specific help. The short version is that everything you need to configure on the Palm can be found under the "Communications" section of Prefs. Don't waste your time with the PhoneLink wizzard.

Can you detail your setup? I'm trying to connect my T3 to an 8310 (AT&T). Any help would be greatly appreciated.
