[access-uk] Re: Using phone's 3G connection on laptop via Bluetooth?

Hi Jackie,
Interesting. If I go to a file in Windows Explorer, and right-click, I can go 
into the Send To menu, choose Bluetooth Sub Menu, and then choose 'Other'. It 
then searches for devices, I press enter on my phone and the file copies with 
no problems. My phone also now shows up as an item in the Bluetooth menu for 
convenience. I have no extra options related to Bluetooth in the Send To menu, 
only the 1 sub menu. The WinCom software is not made by Samsung I don't 
believe, it is a Bluetooth stack, and is much better than the one that comes 
with Windows. I use WinCom on my PC as well, the Microsoft Bluetooth software 
was very hard to use from a JAWS perspective for me.

Hi James

I can't answer your question, but perhaps you could answer mine!
(smile).  As you have the NC10, you may or may not have come across the
Bluetooth software on it.  I am trying to connect my N82 to the NC10 so
I can send a file across from the Netbook to the phone.  It won't let me
do this, babbling on about an FTP address.  In the Send To menu, there
are two Bluetooth options, a Bluetooth device, and a Bluetooth sub-menu
that has Other in it.  If I use the Send To Device, I get nothing.  If I
use the other option, then the FTP babble comes up.  Very strange!

I'm sure I'll crack it, but it's annoying the hell out of me at the
moment.  I don't get this on the Vista laptop.  I just go up to Send To,
and choose Bluetooth Device.  There aren't any further options, and it
works perfectly.  I suspect the other stuff on the NC10 is to do with
Samsung's own software.  I'd gladly rip it out, but don't want to screw
it up or cause more problems.  I think its own software is called WinCom
Bluetooth.

Subject: [access-uk] Using phone's 3G connection on laptop via
Bluetooth?

Hi all.
I want to connect to the internet on my laptop using my phone's 3G
internet connection. Usually I use a program called Joikuspot to
accomplish this via WiFi, however I would like to give Bluetooth a try,
as it is always running on both devices, and I can then turn WiFi off on
the phone and laptop to conserve battery power. So, I went into PC
Suite, and chose the 'Connect To The Internet' option, however it kept
going on about cable drivers, and no modems were installed. There didn't
seem to be any options for doing this via Bluetooth. Do I need to use PC
Suite for this, or is this a feature that needs to be configured from
within my Bluetooth stack software?
