It seems like everyday there is an announcement or release or rumor regarding a new Windows-based smartphone. If you are a Windows user/fan, then this is really good news for you. But what if you are a Windows Mobile fan using a Mac as your primary machine? Well, then concessions must be made. Syncing contacts, calendar, data, and using your data-capable phone as a modem are all a bit more involved. Here we will cover what is required to use your Bluetooth connection to tether your Mac and your WM5 phone for use as a wireless modem.
-Make sure your Bluetooth radio is enabled on both your phone and your Mac. Then pair with your phone by going to System Preferences/Bluetooth/Devices – “Setup New Device” (on your computer). Make sure you check the box “Access the Internet with your phoneâ€™s data connection”.
-Back in System Preferences-Network, choose to Show “Bluetooth”
-Enter the following information: (for providers other thanor , use your GPRS account name and password)
For Cingular customers :
Account Name: [email protected]
For Tmobile customers:
Account Name: *
(Tmobile customers need not put anything specific in these fields, but something has to go here, try “*”
-Now click on “PPP Options” and uncheck the box labelled â€œUse TCP header compressionâ€ and click OK.
-Click the “Bluetooth Modem” tab and choose your modem script from the drop down menu box. First try the Windows Mobile GSM 460k script. If this doesn’t work, work your way down, and use the iPAQ script last.
-Make sure that the â€œEnable error correction and compression in modemâ€ and â€œWait for dial tone before dialing” checkboxes are UNchecked.
-Finally, click “Dial Now” and then “Connect”
