What worked for me (with my T68i+"purple" Ambicom CF BT adapter) was=20
setting Blunt's Bluetooth Setup to accept the pairing initiated by the=20=

phone rather than vice-versa. I've been able to use the T68i to get=20
online since, only occasionally having to re-perform the "Get Services"=20=

function on Bluetooth Setup.

 =46rom there, it's just a matter of setting up a work-site in Owner =
and in Internet Setup. Info on what modem script to set up and how is=20
out there on the list and on the Wiki (I think).

I'm also happy to IM-chat to help, if you like.
