    I was skeptical about this, but after watching the video, I was able to get my iPhone 4 to pair and make a phone call.

    WiFi Must be off for this to work. As soon as I Turned on WiFi, the pair with the iPhone4

    I was unable to pair for text messaging. But will continue to mess around with it.


    Good work.

    If the TP needs to be tethered to it anyway, what is the advantage in using the TP instead of just using the phone to call/text?

    I've got phone calls working with my Droid X2, but messaging is still wonky. My phone requested permission on behalf of the TP to access MAP, which I granted. Everything seems to be ok on the TP side based on the video, but no texts....

    on my g2 it finds the touchpad, but says it can pair because of a wrong passkey, but a passkey never shows up on the touchpad.. =\
    maybe I'll try a different rom..

    This is exciting news. Now for my dumb question. Can you use the connection to access your phone's internet connection? I just have a Samsung Solstice dumb/feature phone and it would be great to get the internet on the TP through my phone when wifi is not available. This sounds like something that most likely won't work, but thought it was worth asking.

    I was considering a netbook with Windows since I know I could establish a dun connection either through BT or USB between a netbook and my phone, but I would prefer to use a tablet over a netbook.

    Got the same on my Iphone 3GS, so I did the following:

    1)Disable bluetooth
    2)close out and reopen freethether
    3)turn on bluetooth tethering
    4)from your phone, find the touchpad via your bluetooth device scan
    5)attempt to connect (it will fail with the message above)
    6)put freetether in the background and open up "Bluetooth" in the "Settings" launcher Tab (dont do anything)
    7)from your phone, attempt to connect again, you will get a button at the bottom telling you if you want to accept the connection, click yes
    8)done, you should be paired

    Confirmed Pairing to be working with Iphone 3GS on 4.3.3 (Phonecalls, No Text), Blackberry Bold 9650 (No Phonecalls, Text are blocked so I cant test that), Samsung Infuse (Calls work, the phone dials the call as typed in the TP, but but then it fails to connect/use the TP as heaset, No Text)

    This is awesome. I was able to pair my iphone 4 without any issues and was able to make the calls. I don't use messaging so i haven't tried it yet. But the phone calls worked like a charm. Thanks for this awesome mod/post. Also i haven't faced any problem browsing internet while on the call so this is awesome. Thanks again.

    I have texting working 100% on my touchpad from my Android phone. No failed sends, no yellow ! icons, just smooth sailing. Here's the link -

    I've been trying to pair a Nokia 5800 and it doesn't seem to work with this method, or maybe I'm doing it wrong. I installe freetether, start it up, enable bluetooth, and have it running in the background. I then had the Nokia search for bluetooth devices, and the Touchpad isn't show up, although my PC, with a bluetooth adapter is.
