    Anyone been able to make this setup work for sending SMS from the Tungsten
    through the P800? (You might ask "why not just use the P800 to send the
    SMS?" but that's another story).

    I've managed to pair the two devices, and they're in each others' trusted
    devices list. They see each other fine, but when I try to send an SMS via
    originating from the Tungsten T, or try to have it dial a number for me, I
    see the P800 "fire up" and the Bluetooth LED change pattern, but after a few
    seconds I get an error message on the Tungsten saying "The phone was unable
    to handle your request. Please make sure you are using the right driver for
    your phone." As there's no sign anywhere of a specific Palm driver for the
    P800, I chose "standard GSM" as the driver.

    Any suggestions?

    Sam.

    Try this link which is hosted on the palm support site. It claims to be up
    to date BT drivers for recently released mobile phones.

    The P800 does not support the standard modem commands (AT+CMGx) to send an
    SMS.
    This means that what you are trying to do is not possible.

    Jeroen - thank you for your reply. Is this also the case for dialling
    numbers?

    Thanks,

    People above say that's due to drivers, but it doesn't hurt to check one
    small thing. Which format are your numbers in? My setup is T|T +6310i, and
    the tungsten would send SMS to +44 (international format) numbers just
    fine, but would produce some sort of nonsensical error message if I tried
    to send them to 07xxx numbers...

    Good suggestion. Turns out I'm already using the "+44" format.. I've used
    the Tungsten happily with my 6310i to send SMSs, dial numbers etc. and I'm
    astonished I can't do the same with the P800 (from Ericsson, the originators
    of Bluetooth after all)..

    The P800 does allow making and answering data calls. But its modem doesn't
    even support fax calls.
    This (and the fact that it doesn't support sending SMS via it's modem
    interface) is my only
    dissapointment with the P800. I am curious if the P900 is any better, I
    might switch.

    My previous phone was a T39 and is supported all of the above...

    I've gone back to my old 6310i, as I find it very convenient to send SMSs
    from the Tungsten and to dial numbers from its phone book. What a
    disappointment that a device that's a couple of years newer than the 6310i
    takes a step back in Bluetooth functionality. I think I'll look at the Nokia
    6600.

    Are you sure that your problems are not related to the fact that there is
    no driver for the P800 available for Palm Handhelds?
    It is annoying that Palm's drivers lag the introduction of new phones so
    much.

    Jonathan,

    I am pretty sure.... I develop PC software that uses GSMs to send SMS
    message.
    I know how this is supposed to work...

    If you want to know what features a GSM modem has:

    Connect to the device using a terminal program (My Win2000 pc has a program
    called hyper terminal)
    Type:

    AT, you should get OK, signalling that you are connected to a modem. Then
    try AT+GCAP.
    You get a response outlining (at a very high level) what the device can do.
    - If you see +FCLASS chances are you GSM supports sending/receiving faxes.
    To be sure you'd
    have to type AT+FCLASS=? to see which modes it supports: 0 means plain data
    calls, 1 and 2 indicate fax modes.
    - If you see +CGSM, chances are that you can use it to send SMS messages.
    With the P800 I checked beyond that, it just doesn't support any of the
    commands needed
    to send SMS messages.

    Some PC programs allow you to send SMS messages using the P800, but they
    require some
    'server' software installed on the P800 itself. I don't think thay have a
    version for the Palm OS.

    Why are you still using such unhandy thing as Hyper Terminal? Recently
    I've found an interesting program - Flash Terminal. It is really Hyper
    Terminal killer. With Flash Terminal you can chat and exchange files
    via modem (including v.90, ISDN, ADSL, GPRS) and null-modem
    simultaneously without Internet! You can exchange up to 255 files at
    once with unlimited transfer resuming after connection break. Program
    includes large amount of nice avatars.

    Because Hyper Terminal is Free (not $24.95), and does NOT require DirectX
    7.0 as a minimum to run.
    Also Hyper Terminal has a proven Track Record, does this one (I've never
    heard of it before).
