[maemo-users] Cell Phone As Modem

I know PAN; however, I had no problems using my Razr phone (Motorola) and
Bluetooth to connect my N800 to the Internet.  So I don't think my issue is
a DUN vs. PAN issue.  I think the issue is on the phone side.  The N800 is
paired with the Black Jack 2, it just can't connect.  The Bluetooth symbol
on the N800 briefly changes then the connection drops.  

In looking at the N800 phone section in the control panel, the Black Jack 2
has only one supported profile (OPP) while the Razr had three although I
didn't write them down before I erased the Razr connection from the N800.
I'm wondering (haven't done the research yet, still recovering from the
trip) if the OPP profile is the limiting factor, e.g. I'm missing a
supported profile in order to make it work.

Nick - It's a DUN vs PAN thing ... WinMo killed off DUN in favor of
PAN connectivity.  You need to install something (prior email with
links) on the tablet to get it going.
