I'm interested in using my Nokia 6255 as a bluetooth modem together with an iPAQ. I'd like to know if anyone has managed to get similar setup already working....

Thanks and regards

Welcome to Geekzone. Yes, it is possible. Have you checked out the Bluetooth dial up guide for iPaq Windows Mobile 2003 (GPRS or CDMA). Its probably the best place to start.

By default Nokia CDMA phones are in circuit mode.
+crm=1 - puts phone into packet mode
+cso=33 - requests Service Option 33 (1xRTT packet data)

CDMA sets up a call based on the Service Option requested. For example:
Service option: 12=circuit data, 15=IS95B (14.4kbps packet), 33=IS95C (IxRTT), and there are service options for voice and fax

The IS707A CDMA protocol standard states that all CDMA devices must by default be in a circuit data state (crm=0).

CDMA devices that use a Qualcomm chipset are by default circuit (crm=0) but will also access packet data service options without changing +crm or any other AT commands. What Qualcomm have done is implement additional AT commands $qcmdr (data rate) and $qcso (service option). These commands are non-volatile and do not change with power off/on. Alternatively Nokia use a TI chipset and the data state is always restored back to circuit on power off/on hence the reason for having to run +crm=1;+cso=33 each time.

Depending on what ipaq you have .. you will need to load the ipaq bluetooth security patch.
Otherwise they won't pair correctly - definitely need this for 22xx series.
