    Moto v710 as modem?
    Does anyone out there use their cell / v710 as a modem with their iBook when mobile? I bought a Belkin USB BT adapter and would like to link the iBook and v710 together and use the v710 as a dailup modem when I'm mobile.

    My friend uses his v710 as a modem for his PPC and he said it should be easy but he's unsure how to configure the iBook to the v710 so that the v710 dails the #777 or whatever it is (not sure what it is).... help?

    Well, can you 'discover' your phone using your bluetooth dongle?
    In the utilities you should have a 'bluetooth setup assistant'

    if you can get the 2 to pair, it should be simple.
    I think you then just go to internet connect (in system prefs) and there select the bluetooth tab. Fill in your settings and see how you go!

    I have the v710 it links perfectly with my powerbook...

    Ok... first you want to make a "bond between your compouter and your phone... Ststem prefrences/bluetooth.... Then you will open up Network prefrences.... Select the bluetooth option... Select the ppp tab...

    Acount name- YOURCELLPHONENUMBER@vzw3g.com

    Password- vzw

    Telephone number- #777 (yes, include the "#" sign)

    Now select the "bluetooth modem" tab...

    Modem: 3com impact Analog 14.4

    Make sure to uncheck the "wait for dial tone before dialing" option.

    Now click the "apply now" butten and go back to the ppp options and select the dial now butten.. It will open up internet connect and from there just select the connect butten.


    I love the v710!!! :biohazard :biohazard

    ah, this is exactly what i was looking for, thanks.

    now do you use the 1xRTT or just the basic hook up which is dailup speed. I know they have a data network but no way am i paying for it, its a rip off to me. but i see a lot of people are using the v710 with their PPC's and they seem to have really good luck with it. Ok, tomorrow I will try to hook it up.

    If I frequently use airport do i need to toggle between airport and the bluetooth? sorry if i sould like an idiot - i'm kinda a newbe with the bluetooth stuff... thanks.
