Can someone please help me. I am trying to connect my iphone VIA bluetooth to my Mac running bootcamp with windows XP on it. I have no problem pairing the phone VIA bluetooth and can connect using join bluetooth PAN networks but the connection is EXTREMELY SLOW. It shouldn't be because I am on a 3G network and have very fast internet using the Iphone tethering in USB mode.

I also tried going into Bluetooth devices then Iphone properties and checking the services available for the phone but it doesn't show any (like networking). I've looked all over the internet and can't find any info or someone with the same problem. Do I have to do something with my bluetooth drivers in Bootcamp? If so where are the drivers.....I can't find them.

Appreciate anyone who can help
Thanks.

Best of luck with that. You're going to need to find someone with an iPhone who lives outside of the US. I don't know about Canada. Rogers might allow tethering. They might not. But unfortunately none of us USA iPhone owners can help

About all us in the US can do with Bluetooth are headsets and hands free dialing devices. Works in my car fabulously for both hands free voice dialing and the iPod.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

It is a shame that AT&T has not given in to tethering. My T-Mobile contract was up this month and I was hot to buy an iPhone with a two year AT&T plan (especially since the price has been lowered). But with no tethering allowed, that kind of killed it for me. Decided to stick with T-Mobile on a no contract until AT&T gets off their hard-head attitude.

Any rumors as to when that will be?

Regards.

You know I have been thinking about this , and the reason they wouldn't give in before was to save their network from being over run but now they are allowing the ipad so maybe they will allow us soon ?

Don't hold your breath. And when they do, they will charge more for it. On top of the iPad 3G fee, on top of your iPhone data charges. And you won't be able to tether your iPad to your iPhone, either. This will hardly be a panacea.
