I say crazy, because I have bluetooth tethering working, and I am not sure why or how it is working?
First, had a snow storm last night that knocked out the power for a good chunk of the day today. I decided to get my PDA wired usb tethering working on the new laptop (windows 7) for a backup. No issues, as I have been a long time PDAnet user (emergencies). Well I know zip about bluetooth, but decided to crash course myself, as I know pdanet has a Bluetooth DUN setting. Started goofing around with it, the connections, and I have bluetooth tethering working just fine. But the kicker is that I do not have to start the pdanet on the phone (bluetooth dun). All I have to do is start the bluetooth discoverability in network connections on the phone, then fire up the bluetooth on the laptop, tell it to connect to my Bionic and presto internet. So my question is what service or process am I running, as I do not have to even start PDAnet on the phone or PC?
I do have pdanet installed on the phone and PC, but I do not have to start either. Could it just be that the installation on both devices was enough? Am I using some other service that will be billed to me? It is NOT wireless hotspot on the phone, as when I start that I get the prompt and redirection to sign up for it. I know I could uninstall pdanet on either/both devices to test, but I am afraid to do so for possible lack of getting it working again.
Thanks for any insight.
