I have a problem connecting my Ericsson T39m via BlueTooth/USB (which apparently work as serial port connection).

The phone was bought second-hand, with no CD, etc, so I don't have any accompanying software, including drivers to set it as a modem. Downloading XTND from Ericsson site didn't help, either. It did not detect the phone, and I had problems uninstalling it afterwards (installshield was crashing, so I had to clean it out manually).

I have no slightest problems via IR link, but it is too clumsy. To use phone as a modem on the move, I have to tape it to external IR adapter :)

I primarily need to use it on notebooks running Win XP Pro/Corp and Win 98 SE/PanEuro.

If all else fails, I could grab a different phone, but I'd hate to because I am too accustomed to this one, and damn it, I never seen another that could live for over two weeks on one charge... :)

You don't need a driver to use the Ericsson T39m as a Bluetooth modem. You just need to pair the mobile phone with your computer, open the Bluetooth software on your computer and find what services are available on the phone. Once you do this, simply point to the DUN (or DialUp Networking) service and "Connect".

This will automatically open the standard dialup dialog, where you enter the appropriate number to connect (for most GSM this will be *99# or *99***[x]# where [x] will be the connection position as configured on your phone).

I tried to do that, but I can't connect to GPRS, getting a message that phone's (not remote) modem is not found. Can't give an exact quote right now because I do not have the dongle handy ATM...

Also, what about cable? Sometimes, I would prefer that option because it also charges the phone, but I don't know how to configure it. When I connect via cable, system just doesn't detect phone's modem. Should I install some kind of generic modem on that serial port?
