Alright, I've been searching Google for hours, and have seen different answers on this.

This is what I want to do : I want to surf WAP or the Internet on my Motorola V600 phone connected via Bluetooth to my (WinXP) notebook which will have either a WiFi, DSL, or dial-up connection to the Internet, therefore bypassing GPRS from my mobile phone's service provider, Cingular. I'm a wiz at the phones, this is however new to me. I'm assuming that I'd have to create a new Web Session on the phone to accomplish this, however I've probably got the settings all screwy.

I've read discussions on where people have said they're successfully done similar... of course, with no explanation as to how. I've seen Nokia and Sony Ericsson forums, but again, the software and settings are different vs. Moto. This forum has tackled some similar questions, however mostly involving PDA's and the such. If this has been discussed before, kindly point me in the right direction. Thank you.

I don't think you can do what you want. First because WAP gateways are visible from within a mobile operator's network only. Second I don't think the V600 has the required profiles to act as a client on a Bluetooth network (LAP, PAN or DUN).

It can be used for the other way around: your laptop connecting to the Internet through it though.

This was the answer I was dreading to hear... man, and I thought I was on to something.

Yes, this I read and understand, but had no problem configuring this, especially with BVRP's mobile PhoneTools.
