[maemo-users] [maemo-users] US users of Nokia 770 - compatibility with Bluetooth-enabled cellphone as modem

I am preparing to replace my cell phone (on the verizon network, hence the 
US-specific question).

I wish to use the phone to serve as a modem with my Nokia 770, using 
bluetooth as the link between the two devices. I have done this successfully 
in the past, however, not with any of the phones that are now available to 
me as choices.

The choices I have for phones are based on this URL:


which yields these choices:

LG VX-8300
LG VX-8500
LG VX-9800
Motorola RAZR V3m
Samsung SCH-A990

It appears all five of these offer DUN (dial-up networking) profile on 
Bluetooth, along with Verizon's 1xEVDO (high speed data) network service.

My question is this - have you had any experience integrating any of these 
five phones with the Nokia 770 for wireless wide-area Internet access, or do 
you know of any resource that could help me pre-confirm interoperability? I 
am asking this question because the carrier (Verizon Wireless) offered data 
integration kit only pertains to Windows computers, and in fact I will need 
to do the integration manually (figuring out the AT DT type dialing 
information and such) and won't be able to get vendor support.

Very thanks for any advice,
