Hi and welcome to the forums!
Do you mean as a tethered modem?

Thank you. I had read this material and I have no problem with Tasks 1 & 2. However,...
Task 3: No selection for "Standard Modem Over Bluetooth Link"
Task 4: No selection for "Bluetooth DUN connection"
I'm using a relatively new Dell Latitude D430 with WinXP Pro.

That was the best I could find. Some really SMART user will come by
and help you out, I'm sure!

Hopefully I am the smart user. Ok first you have to pair your PC and Blackberry. With my phone even after a successful pairing it says it failed to connect, but the device is still there in the list on the phone and the bluetooth options for it are there on the PC under "my bluetooth places"
After you get them paired and the dial-up modem option is available on your PC go to the the control panel under modem options. Double click it and it asks you for an area code. It doesn't matter what area code you use. Then you can go in to bluetoothe modem properties and test your connection under diagnostics and change the initializing string under advanced to +cgdcont=1,"IP","wap.cingular" . Some people say you need to test it first for it to work.
After that just go to the dial up option made available in your network connections for your bluetooth device and connect. Use no username or password. Dial this *99# After you are connected you can try your browser. I use AT&T . Your dial or initialize string might be different for different carriers.
I read somewhere about needing to disable compression headers for TC-IP. I didn't need to do that .
