    Bluetooth internet dial-up

    OK, so I now have a new tablet, with bluetooth, and it seems to connect to the phone quite happily, but I have not found a means by which to connect it to the internet through the phone. I would assume that it could be done through the 3~G connection options, but that has a list of dongles with no mechanism that I can see to add any more...

    If it is not too much trouble, could you ask him if it was straightforward? Thanks.

    USB Bluetooth Dongles

    Does anyone know if the little USB bluetooth dongles work, or can be made to work with Androids? As far as I can think there is no logical reason why they should not, unless the relevant drivers are not available.

    Anyone use those cheaper tablets?

    I bought an Archos 7 from Tesco for £99... It didn't work at all. I took it back and got a refund. Next I tried a NATPC A9 Dual core from Amazon. It seemed pretty good to me, except that almost all of the software in the market showed as incompatible. I discussed with the vendor and we concluded that I had a faulty unit, which I have now sent back. I am currently deciding what to do next... This one on eBay looked fairly good, but how much can you trust a vendor with only 3 feedback?

    I get internet on my laptop through it without any difficulty.

    Bluetooth internet dial-up

    Slight misunderstanding here I fear: I want to connect an Android tablet (without GSM capability) to an ordinary (non-Android) mobile-phone using bluetooth. Right at the moment I am shooting in the dark anyway: we decided that the tablet I had was defective and I've sent it back. I'm just trying to decide whether to have a replacement or a refund and get something else...

    Thanks, I'll have a look. Which is fine if your phone has WiFi capability. Though even there, I am not sure how I would do that. :?

    Bluetooth internet dial-up

    I have been told that Android tablets cannot connect to the internet through a bluetooth connection to a mobile phone. I cannot believe this is true, as I am baffled to why it might be. If it is true, can somebody please explain why? Else why was I having so much trouble? Or was it just that I was working with a dud machine?
