    Using SBC what? Are you asking about connecting to SBC/Yahoo via the internet because you are one their DSL subscribers? Do you want to use bluetooth to access the internet through your home PC that uses SBC ISP? If this last item is what you want to do search this forum for "reverse DUN".

    I'd like to use my home Internet account SBC Global to connect via my Treo 650 and didn't know if there was an easy way to do this?

    If I read you correctly you want to use your home internet connection to connect your Treo to the internet? The answer would be no. Kindof.

    You would need to connect the Treo to your home network, and I dont know of any cable that will do that. Through bluetooth you could establish a connection, and run some PPP software on your PC to allow the PC to act as a gateway for the Treo to connect - I tried it on my T3 and I got it working, but its a pain in the ***, slow (com port speeds) and limited range (10 feet or so). The other option is wifi, but the Treo doesnt officially support a wifi card, although there are some hacks around that have gotten the PalmWifi card working, kind of. You would need a wifi access point in your house for this to work.

    Did that answer your question?

    It can be done and takes a little patience, but it's definitely worth it. I used it with my both Tungsten T and T3 and was able to connect almost anywhere in the house with a very nice data rate; now with the T650, I find the range improved a little.

    The best instructions I've found are in Dean's Guide; he's usually more than happy to help you if you run into anything strange.

    or are you talking to dial into the internet using the actual modem in the treo instead of using gprs from the carrier? and yes you can i have that as a backup in case of data problems i can dial in and use minutes....

    Hi! I'm new and this is my first post. I was searching the web for instructions on how to do this exact thing - access the internet on my Treo 650 using the modem and my SBC Yahoo DSL account. If someone could give me instructions I would so greatly appreciate it!
