View Full Version : New T-Mobile SDA Owner!

Well I did it :multi:

I went to the T-Mobile Store in Downtown San Francisco and picked up my new T-mobile SDA (http://www.smartphonethoughts.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=10362)!

So I am now officially a MS Smartphone user (though I have always considered myself a "smartphone" user since I purchased my Ericsson r380i (http://www.esato.com/phones/index.php/phone=12) back in... I don't remember when)

Having used the r380i and Sony Ericsson p800 (http://www.symbian.com/phones/se_p800.html) it is a bit of a switch from Symbian OS to MS Mobile so to be fair, I will not make rash judgements (well I will make them, I will just not share them :wink: ) about my new Smart Phone.

I know I will have more questions but to start off, has anybody successfully used the T-Mobile SDA as a bluetooth modem? Particularly, has any one used it as a bluetooth modem (GPRS or EDGE) with a Pocket PC 2003 device (I have an iPaq 2215 if you want me to be specific)?

It also looks like I will need to invest in at least one Mini SD card. Anyone have a brand choice? I purchased most of my other flash memory direct from Kingston so now that I think of it, I think I will still do that unless there is a way to purchase through this site.

Hey Mark,

I don't have the SDA so I can't really comment on using it as a bluetooth modem. But it should work. Make sure it's set in discover mode and connect to it from your PPC. I use my SP5m as a bluetooth modem all the time. :D

I just picked up NHL Radio (http://www.nhl.com/radio/index.html) on my SDA :clap: :clap: :clap:

Well, smack my behind and call me Marvin...

I am listening to the Rangers as I write this post.

BTW, thanks for the replies gentlemen.

Mike, any tips for setting up the modem?

To be honest Marvin, I can't really offer much on this. I haven't used my Pocket PC in ages. I know that this has been discussed a number of times around here. Basically, put your phone in discover mode, and connect to it from your PPC. Be sure to dig up the dial string, which is something like #99# or is it *? I forget. If you search around here, you should be able to find some details. :D
