Thanks very much Jonathan!

One down, one to go:

With your advice (the menu navigation in IT2005 might be slightly different, 
but close enough for me), I was able to get the LG VX8300 working with the 
Nokia 770 in the EVDO high speed data mode. No changes were necessary from 
default configuration when I created a new connection of type "packet data". 
This solved my first requirement, so now the 770 can travel with me in lieu 
of a fat laptop. Somewhere I recall a bluetooth/cellphone interoperability 
table referred to me recently - this phone was not mentioned, but could be 
added as a success story.

The second requirement - dial-up connection also delivered via the same 
phone and blueooth --- this did not work when tested, but it is close, 
although the problem is not with certainty in the 770/IT2005: I'll describe 
the setup and see if anyone would care to comment:

WHERE HELP IS STILL NEEDED: In the dial-up configuration case, I am dialing 
into a Redhat 9 box (yes, it's old, I know.....) which has a modem attached 
to a dedicated regular telephone line. I was able to create a second 
connection specification in the Nokia 770 (of type "data call"), and when 
commanded, the call was placed through the phone and the modem at the other 
end answered and did carrier negotiation (I think successfully). At that 
point, the PPP protocol setup did not complete, and the connection timed out 
without going active. There are logfiles and such, but each of these calls 
uses minutes from my (now somewhat depleted) allocation from Verizon, so I 
would like to avoid re-inventing the wheel if someone has soled this. So 
this is actually a question posed to someone that might be familiar with the 
PPP stack and dialer in the 770 and has achieved a connection between the 
770 and a linux box of this sort (which is running mgetty 1.1.30-4, on a 
linux kernel 2.4.22). If there's anyone reading this thread that could 
comment/advise, I'd be very grateful.

Anyway, I'm pleased to report that the 770 seems to like the LG VX8300 
bluetooth, which is good news.
