    That's actually good news, kinda... at least shows us that the disconnect wasn't due to this tethering hack specifically!

    smrs, let us know if turning off the iDisk synching solved the problem for you.

    And thanks for the great troubleshooting info.

    My problem occurred BEFORE I applied the hack. I just got the hack working last night and haven't tried pairing with the car yet today.

    I was having trouble getting my PowerBook to make a DUN connection, but I did finally get things working after I unchecked "Wait for dial tone" in Network preferences under "Bluetooth Modem"

    I had it working for maybe 20 minutes total, but was kicked off every few minutes with various modem and "other side not repsonding" errors.

    Has anyone been able to use the hack on this page to make a semi-reliable connection with Mac OS X? If so, would you mind posting step-by-step instructions?

    Thank you! This thread (and hack!) has been a huge help! I just moved apartments and don't have internet access for another week or so... so a solution would really make my life easier!

    Right now the problem I'm having is that when I try to use Internet Connect to dial #777 over Bluetooth, it says "Connecting to PPP server..." and the 700p says "Connection in progress..." in a little Bluetooth Progress window. After about 30 seconds the window goes away on the Palm and my Mac says the modem isn't responding correctly. In other words, rather than blinking from the Bluetooth on icon on the Palm to the laptop Bluetooth icon, I now get the White Bluetooth icon and the "Connection in progress..." window...

    Just FYI - Here is my connection log from Internet Connect

    ALL THE SUDDEN, IT STOPPED WORKING?
    When I tried to reconnect it just said "Connecting to PPP server..." for a while, so I looked @ my Palm and it was off or frozen... don't know which because the screen wouldn't turn on. I did reset it and haven't had luck since. I did try re-installing the hack file and overwrote the file in phone RAM (since it was still there), did a soft reset, and tried again and still no luck. Here's what the log looks like now:

    I think I've messed with my settings so much, though, that it is probably a lost cause trying to fix it. If you've had any luck settings yours up, would you mind taking screenshots of your Bluetooth System Preference tabs and Network settings?

    Hmm. Well that indicates it's a problem on the stock Treo 700p... and hopefully Palm will fix it with a firmware update in the near future (without breaking this tethering mode hack in the process!)

    I was finally able to test this today, worked great for the 11 minutes I was online, speed was good...I'll be able to test it for a few hours later on

    wow... this is awesome.... installed the hack, and it's workin great with my powerbook G4 12" over bluetooth.... tested the speed at speakeasy.net/speedtest and got 335kbs down and 64kbs up.....

    I'm really really impressed how well surfing the web is with the EVDO on a laptop via bluetooth and the treo 700....

    how do we "un-hack" if needed?

    thank you very much.... I'll just sent the $$ over paypal to you...

    Finally got the hack working. Speeds so far have been very slow for me over BT like less than 100kbs. However, I just got this result over USB on the dslreports 1meg mobile test:

    Pretty sure you just delete the file from your Treo (using Resco or Filez or whatever) and then reboot.

    The file is called "PhoneInterfaceLibrary" and not in ROM.

    Installed this following the directions and it works flawlessly!! I'm connected right now posting this reply on a Win2000 Compaq laptop w/builtin BT. Did a quick speed check at CNET and it shows 281.7 Kbps, which is what it feels like (its WAAAYYY faster than connnecting with my 650 on Sprint, which registered around 56K on CNET before).

    I didn't have an account here and I actually forgot I was on the 700p for my connection, and I was bouncing all over registering, popping into my Yahoo mail to confirm my account, etc., and it didn't feel all that different than using the WiFi. Pretty damn good (yeah, I won't be doing huge file transfers, but that's not what this is for, its for checking email in the airport!!).

    Kudos! This is brilliant. I confirmed with SprintPCS tech support today (after an hour on hold) that the BT connection is being treated just like the USB connection via the Sprint Connection software and you have to have the $39.95 phone as modem add-on, and like many others I'll probably only uses this once or twice a month so it really doesn't make sense.

    Great job!!

    (FYI I've been surfing around for over a half hour and no drops, working fine).

    tested again, had a 50 minute browsing session with no disconnects, no issues at all...had 200-250k speeds with a low evdo signal (over bluetooth, win xp)

    That's with USB (cabled). Most of the people posting here are using BlueTooth (i.e. no USB cable.), which is limited (at least for now) to the speeds they are getting. If you aren't even in an EV-DO capable area you will show 115.2 or so no matter which method you use. With this though, 115.2 is the speed of the link between your phone and the computer, NOT the data throughput (the actual speed is 70 or so, with bursts a bit higher).

    I gather since it was mostly a software upgrade for our beloved wireless carriers, EV-DO is still packet like 1X? This would possibly explain the timeout/disconnect issues people are having. On one hand, it seems that fixing this wouldn't be too difficult. On the other hand, the (annoying) disconnecting and reconnecting further prevents VZW/Sprint from seeing a constant stream, yes?

    Also consider folks, 99.9% of people with the device WON'T be here, and WON'T be aware of this nifty software "add on." Then again, as of my writing this, it's been at least "clicked" 699 times....eeep! Well ok, so it's at least for a while...and even then, most won't be able to figure out how to use it, right? Fortunately, I...hmm can someone help me figure out how to use it? (j/k)



    (sadly in the tech world, most people won't be able to keep quiet...sigh...it's the nature of the beast)

    I think it IS related to this Bluetooth Hack.

    Every time I make a BT connection with my computer and go on the internet, I have to re-pair my phone for use with handsfree car kit the next time I try to use it. I have a 2006 Jeep Commander and the system they use is called "UConnect". It was working just fine before I added the BT hack file, but as mentioned, it is now getting in the way...oh well. I was hoping it was just a fluky, one time problem, but it seems to do it every time I attempt to connect via BT with my car.

    Anyone else experience this?

    Are any of you Mac users out there having begin to try to use the data connection. I can pair up for a short time, and then it drops. It will connect, and then the mac crashes hard. I'm attempting to use Bluetooth.

    A few ideas:

    in Network Prefrences, make sure in your BT connection PPP options that the send PPP echo packets is UNCHECKED.

    also under BT Modem make sure that enable error correction and wait for dial tone are both UNCHECKED.

    thats my set up (not using hack, using PAM)

    I couldn't get this to work until i noticed that the modem was set to Internal Mac modem. I changed it to "Sprint Vision" and now connected at speed of 289.7K !!!

    Not much luck here... I get 900 kbps with Blazer but only 115 with bluetooth and USB.

    I was able to do this without entering my username and password. Since I do not remember my Vision password, I have tried several guesses just to see if it helps and no matter what password I enter, I always end up with 115.2... any suggestions?
