    Once you have a connection, you can enter AT commands, and see which will respond.

    This link is very helpful for testing AT commands, but as you can see, the Blackberry does not support a lot of the common AT commands, like accessing the phone book, and even getting a sound channel out of it, so I'm not exactly sure how to yet.

    HOWEVER, what is very aggrivating, is that the desktop manager software CAN access the contacts and memory of the device, but I do believe also, that it can only do it when USB tethered to the PC, bluetooth doesnt allow it.

    AT+CBC will tell you Battery Life
    AT+CGMI will tell you manufacture
    AT+CGMM will tell you Model
    AT+CPAS will tell you status of the phone
    It Returns:
    0 Ready.
    1 Unavailable.
    2 Status unknown.
    3 Ringing.
    4 Call in progress.
    5 Asleep

    AT+CSQ returns signal quality
    at+cpbr=10,12 Should return phonebook entries 10,11,12, but it doesnt.

    It seems to be pretty complicated, lol, and I havent had much time to mess with it anymore. If anyone else wants to try getting something going, all the input we can get the better to hacking these phones.

    I have also found out that the 8100 does not have the Audio Gateway mentioned earlier on the phone, at least mine doesnt. We need more developers with blackberry's!

    Enjoy guys, hope this sheds *some* light.
    It sends the contacts. I get my blackberry to push through obex bluetooth, the contact list to Outlook in windows. It's a rsv file.

    I can't see any reason why blackberries would not work, it's just knowing the at commands.

    Post your progress. I've got the same phone and it dives me a little crazy not being able to integrate it.

    To the original poster, how did you get bluetooth dial up networking working? That would require OBEx and I was under the impression it was crippled on all Blackberrys in North America.

    Sorry I have not been around in a while. Been really busy working and customizing and working, oh yeah, working.

    I gave up on the AT commands as I could not get anything working. Really aggrivating.
    Even pairing my phone with Pioneer bluetooth audio systems in vehicles I cannot get the audio to go through...

    The Bluetooth DUN setup is fairly easy. It's not crippled at all, at least on the 8100, because that is what I have been using. I also used my 7105T the same way.

    If you have the Blackberry Desktop software installed, then it should've also installed a modem driver for your phone.

    Instead of me typing out all of the instructions. Here's the best link to follow to get it going.

    Follow this for your carrier. The bluetooth will work the same way as being connected to the PC via USB cable. Its pretty nice, I use it all the time in my truck.

    That is a whole other task I have been trying to work on. Of course I can use AT&T's proprietary internet connection using my Blackberry as a modem, but I wanted the ability to dialup to my own ISP via my phone, and it appears that it is not possible.

    My computer doesn't have built-in bluetooth so I got a USB dongle from IOGear and I have the phone paired up with it, however Desktop Manager does not seem to be able to find the device. In the help section, it says to use Microsoft's bluetooth configuration in the control panel.

    I uninstalled the IOGear driver and went to the Windows driver for it, however, when it detects the services, it doesn't find the Audio Gateway...only the dialup networking.

    What must I do in order to get the audio passed through? It seems that if I use the IOGear driver, I can have the audio gateway, but no connection to Desktop Manager....and if I use the Microsoft driver, I can connect to Desktop Manager, but no audio gateway!

    And I'm still looking for AT commands that are blackberry specific.

    As with the Motorola phones the following will return all of the supported AT modem commands for your blackberry:
