    I read this on another forum, and was wondering how to go about doing this.

    "You're not supposed to, but if you get a VCAST phone with subscription from Verizon Wireless (which is using the EVDO technology)... you can use the bluetooth to connect to the internet. I use this with a Motorola e815 and it's great. AND, it's cheaper ($15 a month instead of $60). Technically it's against the terms and conditions though."

    I think you have to seem-edit your phone to allow BT DUN

    Isn't he talking about EVDO though, which would be something completely different (and way faster) than dial-up. If it is possible to use bt to get EVDO net access on your pda, that would be really useful since no EVDO sd or cf card is currently out for handhelds yet.

    Does anyone else know anything about this possibility?

    You don't need to do #777 when you're using BT on this phone.

    The post above yours is correct, minus the #777 part. And DUN does stand for Dial Up Networking but it does not mean you're gonna get dialup speeds. It's just the name for the feature that allows you to piggyback your computer (and yes, your PDA as well) to the network.

    Yes, but keep in mind 2 very big things:

    a) you're not supposed to do this.

    b) it uses your minutes.
