Default Using the Storm with VZ Access Manager to connect to PC via Bluetooth

Please Login to Remove!

Does anyone know if this is possible with the Storm? I messed with all kinds of settings and couldn't get it to work.

Thanks in advance!!!

Yes I got it to work. It will only let you enable Bluetooth if you are running the standard Windows bluetooth stack. That means removing any special software your computer may come installed with. I have a HP and had to do that first.

As I've had experience with tethering in the past, so I figured I'd give it a shot with the Storm. I don't pay the $15/mo fee for tethering. Everything setup quite easily, but when I tried surfing the net, VZW's proxy kept redirecting me to a VZW page to order tethering. Thank goodness for embedded WWAN cards

Use the USB to Micro-USB cable and VZ Access Manager that came with your phone. You can download the software if you don't have the CD.

You also have to sign up for the service for $15/month.
