Default Need help with a crazy idea

Please Login to Remove!

I've got a 8700c with Cingular. I have the unlimited international data plan and no BES. I've been trying to get MidpSSH or some other SSH client working on it, but with no luck. I've yelled at cingular, etc. Web works fine on the BB.
Now, I also have a nokia E65, E62, and N73. MidpSSH works on all of these phones, but I'm not in the US and only the BB has international data. Any ideas on how I could form a bluetooth or WLAN bridge from one of the Nokia's to use the BB's data plan for the SSH application? I have no idea where I would begin to look, but I've got some time on my hands now to mess around with them. I'm going to be travelling without a laptop for a while and really need to be able to do this.

Pair one of the phones w/ a PC and have it autodiscover the available profiles on the Nokia. If it's got a DUN (dial-up networking) profile, you're in business. You'll just have to figure out 3 things, which are likely readily available on this forum or HoFo:

1. The # to dial (for VZW it's #777)
2. The username (iirc, it's vzw on VZW)
3. The password (usually your phone #)

BB devices I've owned: 957 : 7750 : 7250 : 8703e : 8830 : 9530 : 9630 : 9650 : 9930 : 64GB PB

BES 5.0.4 ~ BES 10.1
