Tethered over Bluetooth

Tethered my wife’s Nokia E51 T-Mobile data-connection over bluetooth to her XP netbook using Nokia’s PC Suite. Worked like a charm with internet2.voicestream.com as the APN.

This is an awesome recourse to stay online as we wait for an internet connection to be installed in our new place.

The N900 was the inspiration to this idea; therefore, this post😛

    Hi, I signed up for the $10 unlimited data plan and it works fine with the new apn I added: internet2.voicestream.com
    In the phone’s connection setup, under the default ‘T-Mobile Internet’ and the APN I added, the connection type is GPRS. Is this correct or should this be 3G? If it needs to be 3g, do you know how to change it?

    Sorry for the late reply RA. I have the connection setting as GPRS and I get great speeds on 3/3.5G and normal speeds on 2/2.5G
