good news there for those who doesn't have internet connections yet check this.

(This has been tested with MS and I know that it should work better in BL using its Bluetooth technology. If anyone can make a clear translation that would similarly work in BL, please post it for us!)

Browsing the internet using Sonyericsson K700i GPRS MODEM and PH Smart Howto

REQUIREMENTS:
1) K700i or compatible mobile phone (PH Smart GPRS activated)
2) Bluetooth device (mine is usb bluetooth dongle)

STEPS:
1) Install bluetooth software to the computer
2) Pair the cellphone with the bluetooth device
3) Reveal the services of the mobile phone by double-clicking the mobile icon on the bluetooth
window. Services will be highlighted with yellow. Click on the Dialup Networking. A dialog
box will pop up and the field number should be automatically filled with a string similar
to *99***1#

Mine worked as *99***3#

You should try substituting yours with 1 to 3 the last digit. One of them should be the GPRS and should work as mine. This value may vary depending on bluetooth software and hardware.

Your mobile phone should respond and make a dial. If successful, a connection should be established and automatically, an icon should be docked in the system tray.

After that then you can now browse the net by opening an Internet Explorer or any browser!

Enjoy!


NOTE: This procedure has been thoroughly tested using PH Smart prepaid SIM card and a Sonyericsson K700i cell phone and has been used to post this how to. (Charges is not that bad. 20 pesos per hour)
