HP iPAQ Pocket PC h5100 and h5500 Series - How Do I Use Bluetooth to Connect to a Cell Phone?

Introduction
You can establish a partnership between your HP iPAQ Pocket PC and your Bluetooth-equipped cell phone. Doing so allows you to connect to the Internet using your Bluetooth cell phone as a wireless access point.
  note:
Using your cell phone as a wireless access point will give you slower data speeds than other means of connecting to the Internet.
  caution:
Wireless technology information is viewable by the outside world unless authorization (accepting/declining a pairing) and/or authentication (requiring a passkey) are enabled. It is highly recommended that you enable these security features on both your HP iPAQ Pocket PC and your cell phone as sensitive information can be retrieved from your Pocket PC and cell phone service can be stolen without your knowledge if an unauthorized user accesses your wireless devices.
