Rival will tether with cable but not bluetooth?

Got the $30 5GB package added to my phone recently, VZAccess manager will use it when connected via USB cable, but it can't see it via Bluetooth. The notebook and phone have been paired but VZAccess still fails to see it.

Re: Rival will tether with cable but not bluetooth?

I got this working once, but used Windows XP to manage the connection and not VZAccess Manager.


Here are the configuration steps:


Network Connections> New connection wizard

Connect to internet

Set up manually

dial-up modem (select the Bluetooth modem)

Name it whatever you like

Phone number is #777

The username is

The password is


The reason why I didn't stick with this is because the throughput available on an EVDO connection is greater than Bluetooth, you'll only get around 800kbps (or so) over Bluetooth.
