I have belkin BT adapter and N3650. Other day my ISP ditched me once again. So I thought maybe I could use 3650 GPRS connection over BT and browse from my laptop. However, all my attempts failed.

Would appreciate any pointers in this direction.

Unfortunately so far my attempts have come to naught. I see that BT serial port on my laptop is configured to Com4. But when I double click that icon, the connection is set to Com0. And since ActiveSync is configured to Com0, that guy kicks off whenever I try to dial. I dont want to move ActiveSync from Com0 because I managed to set it up after a long struggle.

Thanks so much for your time.

There's an alternative using the DUN service (dial up network).

Simply pair the devices, double-click the icon corresponding to the mobile phone and you'll see a list of services the phone offers.

Right-click the Dial-up icon and select Create shortcut. The shortcut is now on My Bluetooth Places.

double-click the shortcut and it will try to dial. If there's no configuration yet it will ask for a number to dial and you're ready to go.

I'll update the guide later to include this method.

I've just posted a quick guide for Bluetooth dial up on this page showing the screenshots for this process.

That was cool, I managed to get connected to the phone, however, the internet connection could not be used. I guess, I have to find out what is the GPRS dial-in number used here in India. Now only if the call center folks would know this number...

Nice...

Have a look on this file as a starter.

Thanks for the PDF. Unfortunately my provider Hutch is not listed in there. I called and it appears that in order to use GPRS connection over phone, I need to sign up for another scheme. Darn.
Anyway, I tried using the settings given in the PDF used by the only Indian provider listed there. The phone number works, I am able to establish connection. However when I give the AT command settings with suitable modifications (AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP","www.hutchworld.co.in"), I get following error: Error 734: The PPP Link control protocol was terminated. Removing this, the connection can be established, but I can still not browse.

I appreciate your time and help,
Best wishes,
Suvrat
