Hello

I have a question. If I get an USB Bluetooth dongle (something like this: http://i.expansys.com/i/l/l128178.jpg ) for my iBook G4, would it be recognized by the iBook? Does it need some special drivers? And, the most important thing... if I have a cell phone with Bluetooth and a GPRS internet connection, will I be able to connect my iBook to the internet through my phone by using that Bluetooth dongle?
QUOTE Thanks
Del

I have a macbook and regularly use it to connect to the net via my phone / gprs / bluetooth so assuming that bluetooth dongle works on your ibook then yeah all will be fine

Thanks for the answer. Should all bluetooth dongles work on a Mac, or only some special ones?
