    Greetings Droid Forums,

    First time poster, long time reader. My question is as follows:

    I have a laptop running Ubuntu 9.10, 64 bit. I'm trying to tether my Droid for internet access. I am trying to use PDAnet's Bluetooth DUN to accomplish this.

    I search for my phone with Bluetooth Manager. It finds it and pairs.
    In Bluetooth Manager, I right click on my phone, Serial Ports, Dialup Service.
    On my phone, it says "PdaNet is Connected!" On my computer, it says "CDMA or GSM not supported. The device MyDroid does not appear to support GSM/CDMA. This connection will not work."

    What am I missing? I'd really like to tether in Ubuntu wirelessly, and I don't want to go crazy trying to flash my phone for wi-fi tether.


    Thanks

    This probably should've been posted in the Droid Hacks forum on this site...

    And I'm pretty sure you can't do tethering unless you root your phone, because it's not supported by Verizon yet -- but don't quote me on that. Maybe someone has figured out a way to tether without rooting, and I'm just ignorant about the subject. But if rooting is required, then you'll definitely be flashing the ROM on your phone...
