Default Palm TX to Blackberry 7100g Data Link

Please Login to Remove!

I have a Blackberry 7100g on Cingular Wireless GPRS network. I would like to use the Palm to access the web through Bluetooth to the Blackberry. Every time I set it up, the setup works fine but when I try to dial or access the web I get the following message. ERROR: Serial:Timeout. Could be a bad cable or faulty modem. (0x0305)

Cingular was no help. Has anyone tried this?

Simple answer: it can not be done. The BT on the BlackBerry can not be used for internet data transfer. It is limited to BT headsets, a few BT keyboards, and with the new 4.1 handheld OS software, you can sync with your PIM via BT.

You can not pair it with a Palm.
