Great looking stuff!... backup seems to work... Anyone have a script for the BB800 on ATT/Cingular?

the cingular driver looks for a ttyUSB and this does not seem to appear for me
the 02-ireland (comes up as 'orage' and/or 'o2') when in the UK fails on the LC negotiation

You don't need a USB cable, the OBEX should work as part of the bluetooth stack wirelessly.

Finds the bluetooth and connects
- poked around for connecting to ATT / including the barry project and a few others
- no luck so far.
- any way you know of to use the gnome tools and/or networkmanager to cause it to connect as a modem. (specifics please?)

Once it pairs, manually create a dialup connection and set the modem to your Blackberry. There should be a few in the list and it'll probbaly be listed as General or something. Guess and check to figure out which one it is. Then set the number it dials as #777, and set the username/password. For my carrier my username is mytendigitnumber@1x.telusmobility.com and my password is the ESN of my phone.
