Hello all. I'm trying to connect via bluetooth to my Ericsson T616 phone and dial my ISP to establish an internet connection. Everything seems to work, except when I get to the dialing part. I watch the phone dial the number in sync with the laptop screen showing a dialing dialog. Then the phone hangs up, and the computer responds that "the remote computer did not respond." To be sure, I dialled the ISP's phone number manually and it instantly rings into their modem. I tried a dozen other numbers, but no dice. Again, the connectivity with the phone is there. I have done other things like transfer files and such. And the phone actually tries to dial out, but..... What am I doing wrong here? I've been searching the web for answers for three hours now. My assumption is that my provider (AT&T wireless) has some sort of data transfer protocol that I need to set up (ie. pay for), and it knows the difference between a voice and a data call. All the FAQ's I've read about doing this sort of connection don't mention anything about this, though. Any help or advice would be GREATLY appreciated!

Not all plans allows CSD (circuit switched data). Most data plans allow for GPRS connections only. You have to check with your mobile operator...

So, my phone says it's capable of doing this function, but my calling plan may not allow it? That makes sense. Thanks!

I am having the exact same problem. My cell service provider is Cingular, and I have a media package, but I still can not connect.
