Thanks, Ryan.

I think the problem is I do not know where to look for the bluetooth status icon at all. I've never seen one. There is a connection manager (which gives control over 802.11 wireless), but nothing along the lines of a status icon. Is there a bluetooth status manager I should install? There are command line functions (hcid, etc.) that I can manipulate from the xterm program, but I was hoping not to have to work at command line level.

Very tks,

It appears pairing with my Blackberry 8320 to use the 8320 as a modem may require that I pair in both directions (I don't know why, but this is what it took to get the thing to work with my old HP Jornada 720, and so far I can't get the Nokia 770 to use the 8320 as a modem, so I want to try the pairing method.)
