Windows 2003 Mobile edition and Orange GPRS via Bluetooth


I have a Dell Axim x30 and a Motorola v3 and I want to connect to the int3rweb using the PDA via the phone sometimes.

I was missing the modem string, so it didn’t work. Anway, mostly for my own future reference, here’s a quick list when I need to do it again (e.g. on my laptop):

  1. Phone and PDA are paired and can connect
  2. Start -> Settings -> Connections [tab] -> Connections -> Manage exisiting connections -> Add/Edit relevant one:
    • Name: Orange GPRS
    • Select a Modem: Bluetooth Dialup Modem
    • Phone number to dial is *99#
    • Username: a
    • Password: a
    • Advanced ->
    • Baud rate: 19200
    • Wait for dial tone before dialing: Ticked
    • Extra dial-string modem commands: +cgdcont=1,”IP”,”orangeinternet” (this was the important one)
    • All other advanced settings are default
