I have the exact same problem - I've tried various solutions intended for
Palm/PocketPC (Softick PPP etc) but they don't work since the 770 doesn't
really believe that the bluetooth PC it's paired with is a phone. I think
what's needed is some software that handshakes with the 770 as if it's (say)
some SonyEricsson phone.

In the end (after loads of posting in the ITT forums to try and work this
out) I gave up and just set up a rougue AP when I want to show someone
somthing on the 770 - in effect that just means I don't use it much :(
