I just configured my NX80 and T68i via BT last night. It took a while and a lot of forum and Google searches, and some trial and error, but I got it.
First of all I thought I had all the drivers, but I had to download some OS5 BT phone drivers from Palm's website (I found it in the knowledge base) -- these are totally separate from the Sony MS drivers needed for the stick to work in OS5. I had already linked my devices before downloading this stuff, the only problem was that when the Clie would try to dial the phone, the phone would say "lost bluetooth connection" or the Clie would give some kind of serial error. I guess I needed the additional palm phone drivers (you have to install a bunch of files, and then the driver for your particular model). I don't have a "phone" option in my connections menu either, which I thought was a bad thing, but I use "modem" and it still works.
I have AT&T, and these are my settings, in Connections I have:
Name: T68i (user definable)
Connect to: Modem
Via: Bluetooth (if you don't have this option, you're missing drivers)
Device: KPT68i (the name of my phone)
Dialing: Touch Tone
Flow ctl: automatic
Init String: ATZ
Then in Network:
Service: Windows RAS
User name: blank
Password: blank (says prompt)
Connection: T68i (the name I gave my connection above)
Connection type: PPP
Idle Timeout: Never
Query DNS: checked
IP Address Automatic checked
This uses the T68i's default settings, so you don't have to change anything on the phone. I'm not sure how to configure it for other services.
I hope this helps. I was going crazy for a while. I thought I'd have to use infrared forever. But the hardware is definitely capable of it. Good luck!
