Default Tether 8703 with Palm TX

Please Login to Remove!


I have decided to stay with Verizon due to their unmatched coverage. I recently purchased the 8703e and love it. I also have the unlimited data plan and often tether my 8703 to my laptop. Have always been a big fan of my Palm TX and would love to be able to tether my 8703 to this as well.

IS THIS POSSIBLE???? If so, please let me know how so that I can stop lugging my laptop around.

Thanks

It's a neat idea but I've never heard of it being done.

Within the Palm OS you can set up DUN to connect to the Internet and both the Palm TX and the BlackBerry 8703 have BlueTooth, but on a desktop PC the Handeld Manager software needs to be running to moderate the connection to the BlackBerry modem ...

I'm going to say "most likely not possible" to this one.

i second that, i don't think its possible, maybe someday though..

maybe you can figure out how to share the Blackberry DUN connection via the laptop's wi-fi card and pick it up on the T|X.. not sure if thats possible at all though
