Tethering to Laptop


I just upgraded from a Blackjack with Windows Mobile 5.0 to the Q9h - I would use the Internet Sharing under the Windows directory in WM 5.0. I don't see this in WM 6.0, is this still here under something else?

Any references, websites/blogs, or info you have on this would be appreciated.

Also, do you use Bluetooth to connect to the Windows Mobile Device Center? I've had issues with this - while you are at it, do you use it for the tethering Internet Sharing??

Locked GPS?!

I picked up a Q9 Global at my local ATT COR store (Atlanta - Roswell actually, Holcomb Bridge road) yesterday. As a former Blackberry 8800 user, I am pretty underwhelmed by this device - but no need to rant here about that part.

The thing that has me ranting here is what I was just told by Motorola support. I called AT&T yesterday because I could not get the integrated GPS working with Google or Live. They were utterly useless, they didn't even have any manuals loaded in their systems. So, they gave me the number for Moto. I called them, equally useless, but they did have uber-support guy give me a call today. The research he did told him that the GPS functions for the AT&T device had been LOCKED for use only with the TeleNAV servic...

How good is Telenav? Is it comparable to TomTom or other mobile GPS devices?

Memory Card

I purchased a 2 GB mini SD card from a COR. I was able to format the card, take a picture to transfer to the card and was able to delete the picture after moving it to the card from My Pictures. When selecting the "Storage Card" icon on the Desktop, I receive an error stating that the card cannot be found.

I called AT&T Customer Service and was informed by their technical support that Motorola would provide support. The first call to Moto, I was on hold more than 20 minutes only to get the wrong person who put me on hold for 45 minutes with no answer from Moto Q9 group. I called AT&T and complained. AT&T gave me a $20 credit for my troubles.

Has anyone else had this problem? In addition, I have run across two other issues. When in the ...

Using mp3's as ringtones

I've had the Q9 for just over a day now and after having used the Blackjack, it seems to be all plusses. The speaker on the phone is just crazy loud. However,...

I haven't been able to figure out how to assign an mp3 from my SD card as my ringtone on my phone. I have copied a file to my ringtones folder in My Documents and everything. I'm getting nowhere. Has anyone else tried to do this with any luck? Or is the function blocked due to provider request (which I would think is the likely scenario).

199 pric

I stopped in the AT&T store in Chilicothe, OH today and asked about the rumored price drop. He said the new price sheet wouldn't be out until Sunday night. Not sure what he even knows since he said I was the first one to even be interested in it. I was the first to look at it and he was asking ME questions as I was trying it out!!

I am hoping the price comes down Monday as I have seen on a couple news releases then I might get me one!

Bluetooth Button Config. ???

Sorry if I'm missing something obvious here, but I have to ask:

Has anyone found an EASY way to toggle the Bluetooth setting on/off? I'd love to re-map one of the keys (AT&T Music), but would settle for another method if possible...

BB Connect?

Will the At&t version ship with BB Connect? I read somewhere that it will be an upgrade but that was months ago.

I'm wondering if this is still the case or it will be preloaded???

Locations where it's available: Please post only if you are sure

Maybe this thread will help with locating your Q9. If you are sure of a store where they are being sold please post the location here.

I just picked mine up at:

The ATT COR store in Arlington Texas at I-20 at Matlock in the new Highland shopping center.

They have several so if you are in that area drop by.

This device is a dream come true!

Any lag when typing?

I had the original Q on Verizon and I hated it. Most of the WM devices suffered from typing lag really bad. You could bang out a whole text or email and look up and see the device trying to catch up and even miss some letters. How is the Q9h? Is the keyboard snappy and quick? Does WM actually close programs that are closed?
