Bluetooth newbie here

I'm trying to use a Palm M515 with bluetooth adaptor and a Nokia 6230 mobile phone to get an internet connection via UKVoda GPRS. I assume this is possible ;-(

I don't really understand the concepts here. But from the settings on the Palm it appears that it is trying to make some kind of PPP connection via the bluetooth. Is the PPP connection to the phone or all the way over the GPRS to Voda?

I've downloaded the updates for the bluetooth adaptor and it puts an wizzard on the Palm that is supposed to set the connection up but the GPRS connection ends prematurely and the palm shows a PPP timeout - so something is not joining up.

Anyway does any one here have the necessary incantations to put in the Palm and the Mobile to get this working. What I'm really trying to do is get access to my e-mail while on the move.

Thanks in advance

Check our Bluetooth Guides for configuration on your Palm.

You will need the Vodafone APN in the UK, plus make sure your account is enabled to use GPRS.
