Default Official Lenovo T61 / Vista / blackberry used as bluetooth modem

Please Login to Remove!

Hi there everyone,

I have found overs differents forums that I am not the only one that have problem using my blackberry as a bluetooth modem with my lenovo T61 with Vista.

Here is somes details of my setup

Lenovo T61 with integrated bluetooth runing Vista Buisness with all latest windows update
all latest drivers from Lenovo
Blackberry 8830 from Bell mobility with adequate IT policy that should me let use the blackberry as a bluetooth modem.
I got numbers of laptop with same model, and I got several blackberrys to try stuff... I'm also admin on a BES.

Before writting this thread, a couple of support ticket have been open with RIM and Lenovo all without success. In somes case, RIM refered to Lenovo, and of course, Lenovo refered to RIM, none of them wanted to speak to each other. One funny thing, my RIM rep's told me they all have T61 as regular laptop.

I've already offered RIM to have my laptop ship to their support, and they don't want to... they finaly refered me to Microsoft (Duh)

Here is my bluetooth services listed on my 8830:
Headset
Handsfree
Desktop Connectivity
Wireless Bypass
Dial-up Networking
Audio Source
A/V Remote Control Target


Here is my bluetooth services listed on my 8830 for the pairing with the computer: (somes in french , but useless to our problem sorry)
Audio gateway
Casque
Audio Gateway
Transfer d'éléments du gestionnaire d'informations personnelles
A/V Remote Control Target
Audio Sink


I am able to sync my laptop with my 8830 over bluetooth, it works

I am able to use my blackberry as a modem to go on the internet with a USB cable

the thing that don't work, and in fact that don't appear anywhere is the modem "modem over bluetooth"

I got 2 devices in my Device Manager that are classified

what I want is to use the 8830 as a bluetooth modem with my Lenovo T61 with VISTA

one very interesting page is this one :
Uncrippling Bluetooth in Vista RTM | Dev-Toast

they ask for Device ID that should look like this:
USB\VID_XXXX&PID_XXXX

and my result of devices ID are :
BTHENUM\{426c6163-6b-42-6572-7279-427970617373}_LOCALMFG&000f
BTHENUM\{426c6163-6b-42-6572-7279-44736b746f70}_LOCALMFG&000f


to solve my problem, I *think* (RIM think that also) I need the driver call Modem over bluetooth or something like that.

anyone can help?

Hey lenovo brother!

I just got a brand new t61 2.8 penryn stinkpad last week. I got it with a 7200rpm 160 gig drive...intel turbo memory, bluetooth, fingerprint reader, widescreen wxga+, 6 cell battery, intel abgn...etc.. I just upgraded the memory from 2 gigs to 4 last night... ohh and I am running Vista Ultimate x64... This thing is freaking screaming... btw... i got it through cpp for under 1,000 dollars with free 2 business day express shipping. Anyone interested can send me a private message.

Anyone on to task.... I don't think you should have to suffer much further. I have been asked in the past to accomplish this same task at my job and the only way to do it is over a usb cable.... Just to prove it to you, have you tried a windows mobile device like a dash or htc device? Have you tried a nokia? these connect seamlessly over bluetooth and your able to use that device's internet over bluetooth.

I have never gotten a blackberry to share internet over bluetooth... honestly I don't think it can handle it. My 8320 can't handle uma, bluetooth stereo headphones going into a telephone call. The second i accept the phone call it either drops or reboots the phone.

Default T61p, 8830 No Bluetooth connectivity to Desktop

Hi,

I can pair my BB8830 and my Thinkpad T61p running latest Vista Home just fine using the Bluetooth icon on my taskbar.

However, the RIM Desktop S/W 4.3.0.17 does not recognize the pair. USB connectivity is fine. However, no BlueTooth. I try the Desktop Connection Settings to detect Bluethooth and no go.

On My Vista Bluetooth devices, I only see the ThinkPad Bluetooth with Enhanced Data Rate loaded. I do NOT see any MSFT Bluetooth driver. Should I?

What can I do so that I can get Bluetooth going?

thanks,
