Don't know which forum to put this in, since it's part networking, part software. I'm using an Anycom PCMCIA bluetooth card, with a Sony Ericsson r520m phone. Other combinations of hardware should work fine, but check to make sure the bluetooth hardware works with Linux/Bluez first, and make sure you've got a modem in your cell phone. ------------------------------------- 1. Obviously, be sure your bluetooth hardware is installed and working in your system. There are too many permutations to deal with, so that's up to you to figure out. 2. Put your modem-capable cellphone into discoverable mode, and turn

First, spell out your words, and open your own thread for your own question. Second, this original thread is three years old, so please don't re-open old threads.

And if you bothered to read this thread, you'd see a link in the very first post, that tells you how to do it. Steps 1-5.

How can we, when you provide no actual details?? Version/distro of Linux? Have a bluetooth adapter installed and working already? Bluetooth stacks/utilities loaded?

Have you run a find or locate command to find hcid.conf (assuming the .cong is a typo)?
