Want to set up BlueTooth on your Treo 650?

I just bought my first BlueTooth “dongle” for my PC. The only reason I got it was to start learning to use it with the Treo (and so I can attempt to be on my network while I’m strolling around the cabin).

My husband swears that the only reason I needed to go to Best Buy to pick one up this weekend, was so I could SAY the word “dongle” — which, btw, is a word that one seldom gets to say in polite conversation.

Although I’ve started the process of doing the setup, client projects have put it on hold.

So, even though I haven’t had the chance to finish up mine, I thought I’d share some resources for those of you as new to BT technology as I am:

I found the following article on setting up Dial Up Networking on the Treo 650:

Which lead me to another great resource on BT Technology in general:

Hopefully I’ll catch a bit of time next week to finish setting mine up, but until then — I hope those Treo Techies among us can use these guides.
