Is it an upgraded MP2000? If so, it should work fine, otherwise you'll
find it difficult to run Internet software, esp. with the Bluetooth

I use an MP2100 with Blunt and a Pico Card. I used to use it with an
old Motorola cell phone via Bluetooth for Internet access and it
worked, but newer phones & carriers changed some of the configs and it
stopped working. I did a fair amount of research and never found the
proper INIT strings to get it working. So, it's certainly possible and
it does work, but it's becoming a bit harder. Please don't let that
dissuade you though!

I still occasionally transfer text, iCal, and vCard files to/from my
Mac & Newton via Bluetooth though, so it has other uses.
