GPRS & Bluetooth & UX50 : Rogers AT&T Canada
In another thread I got a lot of questions regarding how to set this up, so I thought I would post my findings here in a new thread so they wouldn't be buried deep in an unrelated thread.
I have a UX50, a nokia 6310i, and am in Ottawa with a ROgers AT&T Canada account.
There are a number of steps towards getting this to work (and these instructions are probably very similar for other providers & phones).
1. GPRS - can your phone connect?
First, check to ensure your phone can access the GPRS network and your account is enabled. Do this by browsing directly from your phone (ie forget about your clie for a sec). If you can do this, and get browsing to work on the phone, this step is done. If not, you need to phone your provider to get them to set this up for you. Settings are specific for each provider/phone combo. On the 6310i for Rogers AT&T: go to settings/GPRS modem settings. Then:
Active access point: Rogers Internet
2. Bluetooth - pairing your devices
Now you need to pair your two devices (the clie and the phone) through bluetooth. Here's how this is done:
On the phone:
- Turn on bluetooth. On the 6310i, go to menu item "Bluetooth", and turn it on in the first menu choice. You may also need to go down to "Bluetooth Settings" (still under bluetooth menu) and turn on My Phone's Visibility (set it to "shown to all").
On the clie:
GO to Preferences, Bluetooth.
- Type in a device name (I chose "Palm").
- Allow device to be discovered: Yes
- Allow wakeup (doesn't matter - I have No)
Click "Trusted Devices".
Click "Add Device". You should see it search for devices, and then discover your phone. You should see it listed there. Highlight it, and click OK.
3. Now, for GPRS through the clie:
On the clie: (most of this is from: http://www.vijaygill.com/awe.txt)
download and unzip
Note that this second url might change as conxion is just a hosting company hosting for palm.
2. Unzip phonelink and then click only on the 6310i.prc
You do NOT need to get anything else.
4. Sync and upload 6310i.prc to phone.
5. prefs, then connections
create a new connection, name it VTG (doesn't have to be VTG, but I am using it as an example)
Connect to: Local Network
Device: (Your phone)
click on details
speed should be 57,600 bps, flow ctl : automatic
click ok ok
6. Go to prefs and then network
Open the menu, create a new service. Call it whatever (I called it GPRS).
For Rogers AT&T Canada:
7. click on details
Connection type: PPP
Idle Timeout: 1 minute (or whatever you want)
Query DNS is unchecked. This lets you add in the DNS's:
IP Address Automatic is checked.
8. click on Script
Enter the following:
Not for the Ericsson T68i, I think everything else is the same (new driver of course), except the 1st line above should be: Send: atdt*99***1# If it is the 1st connection in the phone. (Replace the 1 with whatever number is appropriate).
9. Ok, ok
10. Connect, should say initializing on the clie.
You can watch the bluetooth connection come up on the phone, then you should see the clie change to "Signing on" while the phone shows "Creating GPRS connection". At the end of this (when we reach "established" on the clie, you are online and should be able to surf!
Try netfront, verichat, cliemail, TuSSH, they should all work.
Happy to answer any questions.
I tried the directions above, and had more luck than I've had in talking to Rogers tech support. Unfortunately, although my Clie thinks it's connected, my phone pops up an error message after the connection is established saying "GPRS Parameters not supported"
I thought that the problem was that my Rogers account was not properly setup for me to do this. I talked to Rogers again, and they assured me that everything is ready on my account to do exactly this. They told me that they could not support my attempts to connect with my Clie though, and that I should buy their software for $79 to help me out.
Does anyone have any idea why I get the error on my phone's screen?
I'm using a UX50 with an Ericsson T68i.
Anybody around have experience with Rogers AT&T, bluetooth phone, and Clie?
My phone browses ok.
My clie connects to my phone fine.
I've followed the instructions above EXACTLY.
Still getting the "GPRS Parameters not supported" error.
Anyone here use the above instructions with a UX50 and T68 and have it working fine?
Rogers refuses to help me unless I buy their software.
Bah. Hate Rogers.
Well, I got it working.
I had to play with the init string for the T68i in the connection setup.
And that was it.
Thanks to nlax for the original post...
...and for the help afterwards I guess I'll thank myself. Looks like I'm basically talking to myself here. :P
Just saw this. :) Glad you got it figured out.
Can u talk more about how to tweak the init string
I am using T68i and UX50 but I am a HK user
my error message on clie
"incomplete network setting........."
That sounds more like an error with pairing the two devices, or with having your network setup pointing to the wrong connection setup.
Go to "Connections" and make sure that everything is correct and paired, then go to Network setup and make sure that you have selected the proper Connection.
I got a "Invalid network settings" when openning a web page in NetFront 3.0
Anyone know what's wrong?
Using Motorola V600 as Bluetooth Dial-up modem with PalmOS devices
In order for two Bluetooth devices to communicate with each other, they will have to be paired. Before they could be paired, the Bluetooth Radio will have to be turned ON on both devices:
On the PalmOS: On the Prefs – Bluetooth menu, ensure it displays “Enabled”
On the Motorola V600 phone:
Menu – Settings – Connection – Bluetooth link – Setup – Power, select Edit/Add, set to ON, select “Select
1. Pair the two devices:
- On the Phone, from the Bluetooth link – Setup menu, highlight “Find me”, select “Select”
- On the handheld, from the Bluetooth menu, access “Trusted devices”, select “Add device”.
When prompted, enter the same passkey on both devices.
2. Configuring the PalmOS handheld to use the Motorola V600 as Bluetooth Dial-up modem:
Create a new connection on the Handheld:
From the Prefs – Connection menu, select New and configure as follows:
Connect to: Local Network
Device: Motorola Phone
Create a new Network Service:
From the Prefs - Network menu, tap on Preferences in the upper left corner and under Service, select “New”
Configure as follows:
Service: Rogers Wireless
User name: wapuser1
Connection: V600 (the connection created above)
Select “Details” and ensure it displays the following:
Connection type: PPP
Idle timeout: Never
Query DNS: (checked)
IP Address: (checked) Automatic
Select “Script” and enter the following:
Select OK, select OK again and then, select “Connect”
I didn't go into extensive detail on the blue tooth pairing of devices. I'm assuming the user has the ability to do this part.
One of the things you have to be careful of is the proper keyboaring of scripts and information in general. Make sure that you don't have periods for commas, or and that you have open and closed quotes keyboarded properly... I had a heck of time initially setting it up but got the above work properly for a V600 and Sony UX50 Clie... if you do it right it whould work!
