    HUH??

    Your BT has nothing to do with the ability of your phone to use the internet. Can you connect your computer to your phone? If you can, but can't get the internet you have to check that your internet settings on your phone are correct, that you have a compatible calling/data plan, and that you have the correct log in username and password.

    If you can't connect the computer to your phone, then make sure that your treo has BT, and that it supports the proper transfer protocol.

    You should also read www.howardforums.com for all your phone related questions.

    The Treo 650 has bluetooth capability.
    All you need is a bluetooth adapter for your PC, then you connect to the Treo via bluetooth and use it as access to the internet.

    The PC-card your'e talking about is basically like a second phone, but it only has data access.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    he wants to use his phone as a modem, that's what he's trying to say. I have a D-link BT USB dongle. Its the size of one of my digits in my finger, althoguh i never used it to connect to a phone before, but to a T1 palm. Hopefully it should work. I think i'll use in my my carputer though. all else fails get the cable. Chekc out other forums (a phone forum) to see who got ti to work. I know such features are provider dependant.

    A BT dongle on your computer should be able to access your BT phone as a modem and dial out regardless of your carrier, data plan, etc. Internet connections at higher speeds through the cell phone are dependent on the carrier, plan, etc. Howard Forums will have all the answers for your specific case.

    If it tries and fails, meaning your phone dials out but wont connect, your problem is service or password related. Check Howard forums for your particular service logon instructions.

    Yeah, just understand two things about BT:

    1) it generally sucks. Its great when it works, but until you get that connection down, even with the right settings, its sucks. I'm sorry, but i had ad hoc wifi connections between a desktop and a PDA work better. Even tech analyists agree that it has not fully lived up to its claim. If that has suddenly changed somehow over the last year, i was not made aware of it, whcih is quite possible considering my schedule.

    2) Its simply a cable replacement. If its this hard to do, consider construction a cradle with a cable for your phone somewhere that. If it lights up when its docked, its suddenly a "cool" feautre to your multimachine carputer and adds appeal other than being tossed into your glove compartment or whereever.

    I would understand your feelings of persistance towards getting it to work, believe me, it took a bit of time to get my PDA to work ad hoc despite years of networking expereince. I would say, keep at it, research till your eyes bleed, try your luck, and brag about it in this thread when you get it right, which you eventually will .

    You are interchanging words that should not. Please try and be specific and accurate.

    You have a BT "dongle" on your computer, and you are able to connect to your phone, correct? Then, you attempt to connect to the Net, but it is unsuccessfull after three attempts, correct? Then you talk about a card. What card. Are you referring to your BT dongle? What is a BT Card. WHat is the model number and maker of the "BT Card" you refer to. What does the card have to do with the Internet or Sprint service. If you have aestablished a connection with your phone over BT, the card will not affect your ability to surf the net. Also, how are you attempting to use the services, if Sprint is CDMA and T-Mo is GSM. What phones are you pairing with the BT dongle of your computer.

    Maybe a small lesson is in order.

    Your computer and a BT enabled cellphone can connect, as if there was a cable between the two, if your computer is equiped with a BT "dongle" This connection is like any other corded connection, except it is wireless. It is very similar to a cordless phone for your home. Instead of a wire between the handset and the base of a cordless phone, the connection is made wirelessly.

    Now, once the "wireless" connection is created between the computer and the cellphone, your cellphone "dials" into the service. This requires that certain setting be present on your cellphone (think of it like changing your home phone from pulse dial to tone dial) Once the settings are correct, the cellphone "dials" (kinda, it is not REALLY dialing, but attempting to establish a connection) into the ISP (which is actually the cellphone carrier). The ISP then askes for a username and password. Now, if you are having problems with connecting to the ISP, you must contact the ISP, or determine from other sources like Howardforums, the proper username and password to use. Here is the thing, the fact that you can not connect to the service, though it dials and attempt to connect, HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE BT CONNECTION. Sprint and T-Mo tell you that because they are complete idiots, and also because, they would rather not have to deal with you on the phone. In call centers, numbers are everything. If they can tell you that you need to call someone else, or work it out yourself, then they can move on to the next caller. That is just a fact of life. If there was a problem with the BT connection, you wouldn't be able to dial, just like you would not be able to dial a phone number on a cordless phone if there is a problem with the wireless connection between the base and the handset. The fact that you are able to dial, and not connect, indicates that either a setting is wrong on the cellphone or with the username and password.

    "The fact that you are able to dial, and not connect, indicates that either a setting is wrong on the cellphone or with the username and password."

    THis is not the problem, the username and password are correct the problem is in the BT Manager software, THe Ambicom software for some reason starts the dialup process and then time out, but

    thanks for all the info and I will try to be more accurte with my discription...but I got it working I got a D-link DBT-120 usb BT adapter. After I installed the driver (Manully) "IT WORKS" at the speed of about 115kb

    I got my info for my phone from this site http://vocaro.com/trevor/treo-dun/ the only thing I dod not have to do is load the crack because the latest updates give access to "dialup networking"
