OK, found the problem with my internet connection on the N800 and 
pairing with the Centro.

Here's how I solved it.

1. Erased the phone from the list of trusted devices.
2. Went into the Centro and changed its device name from Centro to 
3. Stopped and re-started Bluetooth service
4. Found the N800 when "looking for devices" still showed the OLD NAME. 
I thought it was a bug on the Centro, no, it's a bug in Nokia's OS which 
apparently uses the "cached name". THIS IS VERY CONFUSING and should be 
5. When I paired with the "new" phone (which still showed the OLD name 
despite having changed it and even restarted bluetooth on the Palm), by 
entering the new keycode, it asked me if "I wanted to use the phone as 
an internet connection".
6. That is apparently the ONLY way to invoke the "Mobile Operator 
Wizard" run in the N800 OS.
7. If you start from Connection Manager, there's no way I could fnd to 
fire the Mobile Operator Wizard. BZZT Wrong!, that's why I ended up 
creating connections that didn't work.

Someone please translate this into a bug report. :o)

Just my $0.02
