Default Who said our 8100 doesn't work with Pocket PC (Windows Mobile). IT WORKS!

Hi,

YES IT WORKS like a charm (as a bluetooth modem). I own Dell Axim X51v (WM5 OS) with 8100 and did a search about how to use 8100 as a bluetooth modem. The reason why I bought Axim PDA is I don't want to carry a big laptop. After searching all I found was it'll not work with Pocket PC, so even after I got my pearl, I didn't even think about trying.

Anyway I thought I should give a shot, but Initially I got lots of unkown errors blah blah. The tricky part was the 'extra string' field, and IT WORKS!

Now I can take my Axim X51v to anywhere and get internet connection while my wife's driving.

If any of you needs step-by-step instructions, let me know. I'll do what I can do.

Not sure why anyone would say the Pearl would not work as a modem with Pocket PC.

Windows Mobile is simply a scaled down version of Windows XP on the desktop.

Since a Pearl can be tethered as a modem for notebooks and desktops running XP, and a Dell Axim with Pocket PC or Windows Mobile can connect with the desktop or notebooks net connection, no reason why the Pearl can't do it.

Can you post the instructions [strings and commands] as I have an Axim X50v collecting dust, but I might want to set it up as a GPS device, using the Pearl as the connection. Somewhat of a contraption feel to it, but would be cool to try out considering the Pearl's limitations.

Also, how did you connect the Pearl to the Dell? Seems you say BlueTooth. That would seem a feat as I am not aware of how to do that on the Dell Axim. Details, I need details.

I have Ipaq 2215 pocket pc. It can see my pearl but I can't use it as a modem. Do you think your method would work with my ipaq also?

thanks in advance

I have the X50V 2003 and i can't make it work, so i guess there might be some differences between WM3 and WM5 with bluetooth, unless of course i am missing a step but i've done the same thing i've done on my laptop and i got it work.
