Blackberry Bold Tethering with Bluetooth DUN won't connect

I am able to get my Blackberry Bold to connect with a USB cable using the Dial-Up Networking.  I am unble to get DUN to work with bluetooth.  I don't even get the chance to enter a username and password.  I have recieved error code 192.  I don't think I am connecting to a com port, but I can't figure out how to fix this.

 

Any help?  I am able to sync bluetooth, I have looked at all of these documents and seem to have everything setup correctly.

I have followed this proceedure and it works for USB, but will not work for Bluetooth.  It's like the computer can't see the phone as a modem.

 

I get error 692, not 192, sorry about that.

Re: Blackberry Bold Tethering with Bluetooth DUN won't connect

Ok - to help others, I stumbled on the solution.

 

If you never get DUN to try to enter the Username and Password, then it's probably not accessing the right COM port.  I went to Bluetooth options from the icon in the start up menu.  I clicked on the connection I established, clicked on Properties, clicked on Services at the top, told it to let use Dial Up networking. Saved all of that.

 

Then I went Connect To - right clicked the Dial Up networking, selected Properties, then I saw that step above created a new entry under "Connect Using", so I clicked that.

 

Then tried it and it worked.

Re: Blackberry Bold Tethering with Bluetooth DUN won't connect

I've read all the postings and tried a number of different settings and finally found a combination that works for tethering my Bold 9700 over bluetooth. I am running Windows 7 64 bit OS and my carrier is AT&T.

 

In the Device Manager under Modems --> Standard Modem over Bluetooth link, on the Advanced tab, enter the following string in the Extra initialization commands field:

 

  +cgdcont=1,"IP","wap.cingular"

 

Then set up a new Internet connection (in Windows 7, it's under the "Network and Sharing Center"). You need to create a new Dial-up connection. You should see an option to select either a Standard Modem or a Standard Modem over Bluetooth link. Choose the Bluetooth one. Then use the following credentials:

 

Dial-up phone number: *99***1#

User name: ISP@CINGULARGPRS.COM

Password: CINGULAR1

 

Name the connection whatever you want and hit connect. The caveat, of course, is that you alread know how to connect to your device via bluetooth. I also know what settings to use for USB if anyone is interested.

Thank you for the settings!  They worked like a charm. 

 

Yes, I would be interested in the settings for connecting via USB.

 

Thanks again...

Re: Blackberry Bold Tethering with Bluetooth DUN won't connect

pbarigga, you got it, thanks so much

 

every other article in consulted about this gives the WRONG phone number for the dialup connection to the phone!

 

As pbarriga mentioned, the correct one is *99***1#
