I have an iMate JAM and I got to the point where a modem query on the 'modem over BT' on my laptop works fine.
But, when I run the dialup BT connection it goes "Opeing Port", then gets to "dailing...", and quickly to "Error 678: The remote computer did not responde...".

But you need GPRS to connect to the internet world or are you using CSD

don't now what is CSD.
can't i just use the cellular line to call my ISP as I do with a regular line? (I tried using the same number I do for dialup).

If you use your ISP dialup number then this will be a CSD (circuit switch connection) and you will be charged by your mobile carrier for the time connected not the amount of data moved up or down link.

Does your carrier not provide GPRS data plans and there may be some restrictions on your mobile carriers side from dialing a ISP.

I don't think that's the case. if I dial the same number from the keypad it works fine (I hear the computer DTMF on the other side). when done from the laptop the JAM doesn't show any sign of dialing.
I see a DUN service in the BT screen of the JAM, how does that work?

If you dial the number and hear the modem noise it doesn't mean your operator will allow a modem on the calling side. When you put both together the operator will detect a CSD connection and not allow it to continue.

Not all operators allow CSD connections. You have to check with yours.
