Connecting a Pocket PC to a Blackberry phone

by aruba51 / January 23, 2010 5:26 AM PST

I have a Pocket PC ASUS MYPAL A626 running WM6.1. I would like to connect to the Internet using my Blackberry Pearl 8120. Both have wifi and bluetooth. What do I have to do (step-by-step) to connect to the Internet. Research didn't turn up any answers.

I may be mistaken, but I do not believe it is possible as the Pearl 8120 does not support tethering, which would otherwise enable you to connect your MyPal A626 to your Pearl 8120 via Bluetooth, using the 8120 as a modem for the A626. However, if you are near a WiFi hotspot, you can still use the A626's internal WiFi antenna to connect to the internet.

Thanks John. I hope somebody is working on this option for the future. It works great on my wireless home network.
