Hi everyone,

I have just recently purchased a bluetooth toshiba pocket pc e740. I also have a siemens bluetooth mobile phone.

I have established a connection between my pocket pc and mobile phone. However I cannot connect to the internet.

After the connction to my mobile phone is established, I click on connect on the pocket pc and it sends the dial up number to the mobile phone but disconnects straight away. I get a message on the pocket pc saying there is no modem connected.

Can someone please help with this. Am I doing something wrong? Do I need to purchase additional software/hardware?

Moonshadow, have you had a look on this guide? The Bluetooth dialogs are for an iPaq, but the Connections dialogh you'll have on your Pocket PC are the the same.

Other things to check are

  • do you have data access on this account?
  • do you have the dial up information (number, APN name - you can get this from your mobile provider)?

    Just for your information:
    You can download a new BT-stack v4.0 for TOSHIBA PDA's from the following location:
    Install the ins_tosbt.CAB file on your PDA with ppc2002. The other file ins_tosbt2003.CAB is for ppc2003 only.

    Regarding your problem:
    Please check in your connection setup if the selected modem is still the right one.
