    Hi,

    I have searched nearly everywhere for a solution to connect my Slider to Internet using Dial up Networking and my Blackberry Torch.
    There seems to be No support for DUN (dial up Networking) in Android 3.2

    With another Android device such as an HTC phone, bluetooth tethering works fine
    Also te pad can work as Internet provider using WIFI as it's source and Blue tooth as to connect another device
    I would like an app tat add DUN to the Android Slider

    The Only other solution would be to swap the phone from BB to Android

    THX for any help

    You are correct, there is no BT DUN support in Android. the most current open Ticket at Google with this is 16717, specifically a BT DUN profile for blackberry devices. I know this doesn't solve your problem, but hopefully gives you the info you were looking for in terms of a yes/no.

    Thanks,

    I have found a "solution"
    I bought a Huaweii modem / wireless router.
    Not te best solution, but don't want to wait for Google to discover what the world is really about (NOT google)
