    I was thinking of getting a Clie TH55. I currently have a Treo 755p on Alltel, and I want a bigger screen for web browsing. I want to use my Treo's EVDO connection, pair it with the TH55 through Bluetooth, and use the Treo's EVDO to browse the internet on the TH55. Is this possible? I know there's a way to use regular phones to connect to the internet, so it may just be a matter of settings for username/password for Alltel. If so, can anybody tell me the settings for Alltel internet? If not, how can I do this?

    Philosophically, this is what USBModem (or the tether hack, I suppose) does. Likely if you just try to use Alltel straight up you will have to pay for a tethering plan, and then you can do it natively.

    I can't say for sure that the Clie will support it, but if it does (i.e. you can connect through Bluetooth and your PC now) then USBModem should work regardless of tethering plan status. As I recall you don't need a username/password for USBModem but the instructions for the Clie should be the same as for any PC/Mac.

    I don't think PDANet would work at all.

    Good luck,

    I don't get it. I thought USBModem was for connecting a Treo to a PC. How can I use it on my Clie?

    It's just enabling one of the bluetooth profiles (assuming you select "Bluetooth" :) - I think "Dial Up Networking" but maybe "Network Access" (I don't have my dongle in to check, sorry). Then you just need the Clie to connect to that, it's a standard access method so hopefully it would work straightaway.

    Basically you'd need to follow the instructions for a Mac, since they don't have the Windows driver issues. Really you're using usbmodem to enable the bluetooth network profile for the Treo, and then the Clie is connecting to that standard profile.

    More info on Macs using the bt hack, if you're interested:

    I can use my Nokia n810 with my 755p as a modem via BT. It wasn't any effort, I paired it with BT and it was done (I didn't need to know any settings)...

    when i pair my treo with the other palm, it says connection sucessful, then would you like to use the phone to connect to the internet, i select yes, it says select your carrier: AT&T, Cingular, or Tmobile. I'm Alltel, so i just choose at&t, hit next, and then it says sucess. i hit connect, and is says signing on. then it stays there for a while. The "signing on" message goes away, and then I assume it is connected. I go to web, and it puts the palm in an endless reset. what?

    So what should I do? I still don't have this resolved.
