Hi All,

I am very confused atm. My iPhone 4 says it has Internet Tethering (Settings > General > Network > Internet Tethering > On) via Bluetooth (Settings > General > Bluetooth > On).

1) Does this mean I can share my data plan with my Android phone? (A Dell Streak.)

2) When I activate Bluetooth on my Android phone (Settings > Wireless & Network settings > Bluetooth > turn on > Bluetooth Settings > Discoverable > turn on) I can both iPhone and Streak to see each other; I get the dialog saying "confirm that number xx appears on the other device's screen" and press the button to confirm that; but that's it. From then on both devices say "Connected but not paired". What else do I need to do?

3) A lot of posts I see on the Mac forums say that your provider (currently Virgin Australia) must support tethering. Does that cover this use? How do I know if my supplier is stopping tethering from working?

Thanks for any assistance!
