7100T as a modem... using bluetooth??
I just spent about 2 hours on the phone with Tmobile trying to configure my 7100T as a modem device through bluetooth. My computer is linked with my blackberry via bluetooth and I had the modem set up as instructed by tech support.
Then, after the guy researches a bit, he tells me that he doesn't think the 7100 supports this over bluetooth, only over USB. The 72xx on the other hand does support it. His research was done by means of google and the internet, not tmobile.
Anyone know how to, or if possible, connecting your computer to the internet through the 7100 using bluetooth?

Save yourself a lot of time. You can not use your BlackBerry as a Bluetooth modem. And the 7290 doesn't support it either. Today, Bluetooth is for audio/wireless headsets, and some brand new keyboards. For further details, please see the dedicated Bluetooth discussion forum here.

Hmm. Lots to FUD about Bluetooth security at the moment, and there's my BlackBerry connected to my Intranet. I think not allowing data connections of any kind over Bluetooth to a Blackberry is a security issue.

Keep thinking. Do a Google search on "bluejacking" or "bluesnarfing".
Also check out something called AES and 3DES. Companies using BES have their data streams encrypted. No Bluetooth for us, thank you.

:bb: Data related bluetooth is coming soon, but unavailable at this time.
Security from 30 feet range ? WHat is someone going to follow your every foot steps to bluejack you ? Plus BT isn't very fast, so unless you stay parked for a while and are discovarable, well...

You would be surprised what some people would do...

they would have to follow me pretty close doin 70+ on the highway with a parrot and 7100T just talkin hands free. I like it. :)

if thats the case, then why are there bluetooth desktop printers?
we have tons of them.

OK oK ok...
You can use Bluetooth for anything you want to use it for. I have my BB start my coffe pot in the AM. The truth is I just dont want to tell you all how to utilize the Bluetooth functions.
NJBlackberry (a Super moderator) states "You can not use your BlackBerry as a Bluetooth modem"...Ok I believe him. Being a trusted member of this forum I take his info a reliable. If I was to still doubt him I could do a search and see countless threads about this very same issue.
Ah...My first cup of the day...French Roast

at being funny. As soon as I figure out the passkey for one of these printers, I will see if I can print using it. I'm just curious as to why they would make them bluetooth compatiable, if you cant use it. I wasn't saying that anyone was wrong...
|blkberryboy ||10-24-2005 11:10 AM |
Good luck bbgirl...If you can crack it please post it here for all of us to see.
PS. I think I'm funny ;-)
|bbgirl ||10-24-2005 11:24 AM |
bboy, i'm sure you are...lol. I will post it right away.

Bluetooth printing has been available for sometime. Check out "Thinprint" which allows for Bluetooth printing.

The blackberries aren't fully bluetooth enable. they only enable hands free/headset linking.
This gets beat to death way too much. Its deliberately disabled. if anyone figures a way around it, RIM would lose too many customers, so it may even be hardware limited.

With DM 4.1 and handheld 4.1 (on the 8700 and coming soon to other devices) you will be able to sync via BT.

mobishark just released SharkModem. i tried it... works just fine for me. the only downside is no bluetooth. sucks bad www.mobishark.com

But if I am reading this right you can use your 7100t phone as a modem for your laptop?
