I am not very computer literate, but, I am trying. I have an iPAQ h5555 and I want to be able to go onto the internet using my Sony Ericsson T616 cell phone as the modem. Both have bluetooth but I don't know how to get the iPAQ to recognize the phone. I am not interested in sincronizing at this time. I just want to put an internet provider like people.pc or any other service into the iPAQ and dial up through my cell phone and using it as the modem. Can this be done and can it be done without having to add the internet service from my phone service which is cingular.

You'll need at least a service called CSD (this is the technical term, your provider probably have another name). This is not the GPRS service, and it'll be charged per minute ($$$). Besides that, it'll be slow (9.6Kbps, while GPRS will be around 42Kbps).

Check this guide for instructions on how to connect when you have the service you need.

Thank you for such a speedy answer. I went to the guide as you instructed and followed the steps. when I got to the part where I needed to select a device there were no icons for me to select. How do I tell the ipac which phone to use. The screen keeps going back and saying no device selected. I can't get past that screen.

Make sure your phone is in discoverable mode. When you come to the dialog where you have to select a device, there'll be a button to scan for new devices. The iPAQ will then find your phone.

Thank you, that worked fine. Now I need to put in the connection name. Can I install earthlink as a provider or people pc or is there a special one I will be required to use. I still don't understand what CDS is.

The CSD is a dial-up connection. The GPRS is another type. You can enter the connection name you want there, and then you'll be asked for a phone number. Enter the one used to access the dial-up service.

As I said before, you'll need your mobile operator to have the CSD enabled in your account, otherwise you may not be able to use it. But you can try first...

I put in as the connection name, GPRS. I put my area code and for the phone number I put my cell phone number. the pc and the cell phone did commuicate I heard it working. I did not get a connection, but that is because I don't have an internet provider. I was hoping to be able to use a provider installed into the pc and not use the one with my cell phone company. Can that be accomplished or is it not possible.

Yes, it can be done - but you have to enter your provider's number on the number to dial on the Pocket PC - that's all. Also, enter the username and password.

But remember, if it doesn't work you'll have to check with your operator.
