Internet connection via Bluetooth and Motorola V600 Internet
The following are step-by-step instructions for getting your Motorola V600 from T-Mobile working with OS X.
  • Call T-Mobile and turn on the $19.99 internet service if you haven't already, then wait 24 to 48 hours for activation. Before continuing with the Internet setup, you need to download the proper modem scripts. You can get them here. Use Stuffit Expander to extract the Scripts, and put all of them in /Library -> Modem Scripts/.

  • If you've paired your phone and laptop already, delete them from both. It's easier to start from scratch.

  • On your Mac, choose System Preferences -> Bluetooth -> Settings. Check Discoverable and Support Non-Conforming Phones. Click on the Devices tab, and then Set Up New Device. Click Continue.

  • On your Motorola, go to Main Menu -> Settings -> Connection -> Bluetooth Link -> Setup -> Find Me. This will make your cell phone discoverable for 60 seconds.
Read the rest of the hint for the remainder of the steps...

Setup, continued:
  • On your Mac, select Mobile Phone and click Continue. The Mac will discover your cell phone. Highlight it, and click Continue.

  • A passkey will display on the screen; accept the dialog on the Motorola that offers to bond with the laptop, and input the passkey that the Mac wizard issued.

  • Select 'Access the Internet with your phone's data connection,' and then select 'Use a direct, higher speed connection to reach your Internet Service Provider (GPRS, 1xRTT).' Click Continue.

  • Leave the Username and Password fields blank. For GPRS CID String, enter internet2.voicestream.com. Note: if this doesn't work, try internet3. If neither works, contact T-Mobile and tell them you want to be on the internet2 or internet3 ASN. Select Motorola GPRS CID1 in the dropdown for Modem Script. Click Continue, then quit.

  • Go to System Preferences -> Network, then highlight your Bluetooth connection. Click configure -> PPP tab -> PPP options, and turn off 'Send PPP echo packets'.
That's it!.

You can use the ASN (or APN in some phones) = wap.voicestream.com for basic http (not https) and email (ports 25, 110) if you have the basic $4.99/month T-Zones plan. Use internet2.voicestream.com if you want complete access to all ports ($19.99/month), and internet3.voicestream.com for VPN access to your corporate network.

This will no longer work with T-Mobile's $4.99 or $9.99 T-Zones data service (wap.voicestream.com), as they have closed most of the applicable ports on the firewall, and it will not permit connections.

why, why, WHY~!?!
i had been using my nokia 3660 for over a year as a bluetooth modem for my PB, happily pulling down webpages, until i tried today and it no longer works!
-
however, it does still seem to work for POP mail, i can retreive mail to the laptop using the phone as a modem.
-
i called t-mobile and they told me "that's not possible", but, of course, it is.
-
the question now is how to find the workaround for this grievous hobbling of my cellphone.
-
any proxy servers? ports to connect to?
-
i'm hoping that in "System Preferences/Network/Bluetooth/Proxies" something can be entered to restore this http access.
-
anyone?

Internet connection via Bluetooth and Motorola V600
Authored by: mikelawson on Jan 26, '06 11:25:26PM

This is great, thanks. It just saved me some coins on buying a card for this. I never knew my V600 could do this until I got to Google and the cheapo in me came and started searching ways to connect my PowerBook G4 1.25 to the Internet using the T-Mobile cell phone without having to buy that $200 card and sign another contract with this. I was on a Family Plan with 1600 minutes for $99.99 a month, and only using about 600 minutes consistently. So I switched to the $70 plan with 800 minutes, and for another $30 added the unlimited Internet Data plan PLUS the T-Mobile Wi-Fi Hot Spot unlimited service. Using these instructions and the scripts, I had it all set up in minutes and I am logged on with it now. Yeah, it's slower than my Wi-Fi at home, but when I'm traveling this is going to be awesome. No more having to find a Wi-Fi spot, I can just make sure I have bars on my phone and go for it. Thanks again!
