my story is a simple one:

I have a treo 650.
I have owned this fine piece of hardware for over 6months.

I got a big pile of c1000 PDAs brand new.
the first thing I nontice is a big stack of socket BT cards... I wanna get on the net.

I remember that I installed a hacked rom for my treo 650 from this person named ShadowMite Saviour to many verizon wireless subscribers who own a treo 600 or 650.

Now the full tutorial on how to overwrite a rom on your treo is here:
http://shadowmite.com/HowToDUN.html

You only need a SD card and a copy of a free palm app called Filez that let's you view internal rom and external SD.

the short version is copy the hacked BTmanager.prc to a SD card and use filez to simply over write and reset your phone BAM EMERIL! BAM!!

and there it is... something that your phone should do anyway. Dial up using BT connection. fucking assholes at palm, verizon and sprint get the nutsack for simply commenting it out! making it unusable to those of us without the skills of a full blown developer at PALM.

...back to the Zaurus:
Of course being the fool that I am I installed the factory jpe rom from sharp with english localisation. a good intro, but quite frankly the kanji is prettier to look at. unless you are a retard, you can SEE what the icons mean.

BUT there sure as shit isn't any BT support!

After bucking on 3rd party ROMS for about 3-4 days I decide to take unit#2 and install the latest version of cacko 1.23 from here: http://my-zaurus.narod.ru/cacko.html as it taunts me with it's "BlueZ working BlueTooth Drivers" and all the other things I have read about it seem to be good news.

Lo and behold there is a God and it's name is Cacko! BUT WAIT!
what is all the crazy BT stuff in here ????

I am a TREO owner on the VERIZON network, which does not officialy support DUN on any unit except that thing some jerk named the "BlackBerry".

However... the information to get us in is readily available from customer service!

To get on with your zaurus running the Cacko Rom 1.23 or later enter this for Verizon in the network settings for configuring a BT PPP connection.

Username: "your phone number@vzw3g.com"
Password: vzw
Phone Number: #777"

click "connect" and you are off!

sure as shit I can surf le web from my web enabled PDA phone on my..um other PDA which can't accept a bigger SD card then 1GB??? more about that some other time. (what the fuck was SHARP thinking?) So that's right... a c1000 with a 640x480 screen and a 416mhz processor cannot use more than a 1gb SD card, and you are boned if you want wifi AND to listen to your music??

Would it have killed them to atleast build the BT in???

All the same glory and fireworks to cacko and shadowmite for making great shit that fixes products that weren't broken until they were altered by their producers. thanks alot Palm and Sharp.

Yes and I see you realize a 3100 will let you listen to your music and BT at the same time. My time with my wireless company is nearing the end and I will probably go with sprint. I believe they are 3g dun enabled from the start and $15/month unlimited data.

that is a fucking DEAL.
have you seen this on splashwireless?
http://www.splashwireless.com/offers/treo650/

I mean you know... before you commit suicide with a contract like me...
and yes the c3100 is the future.

the only thing I want more than a 3100 is this: http://www.dynamism.com/oqo/gallery.shtml

junks is tight.
I am personally contemplating using a evdo card from my carrier, 86ing the phone service and going full data chat and skype.
if the freaking c3100 was a phone I'd be set.
I'll pay anyone $1000 cash for a working gsm quad band phone built into a c3100 that I supply.

also as far as I know the DUN on a sprint Treo 650 is NOT enabled out of the box. you will also have to go to the realm of shadowmite and get the patched BTmanager.prc for sprint.

ya,

I am looking at the samsung a900. It is basically a razr lookalike and I believe it has dun available from the box. I'm still doing my research. The caveat is the coverage in suburbia for the 3g is not extensive, but living in NYC it should be good enough.

You can thank Shadowmite for that!
I am sure once he uncovered the dirty secret they got massive complaints...

too bad verizon is a bunch of bastards about it!

Offroadgeek bought one of those OQOs, now he wants to sell the sucker, it's too noisy. See his post on the where's-he-been poll.

Anyone get this to work with a Treo 700p or Treo 700w? I prefer the Palm flavor. I'm definitely getting one of the Treos but I'll only get the 700 series if it will be able to do DUN with my Z C1000.

This is a good thread. Thanks for the info!
