Despite Sprint’s announcement that the Treo 700wx supports Sprint’s Phone As Modem offerings, the device is as crippled as its Verizon counterpart. The 700wx, unlike the PPC-6700 which precedes it, refuses to be used as a modem over Bluetooth.
Like the aging Treo 700w, customers will have to add third-party software from PDANet to enable the basic ability to use the device as a modem over Bluetooth. Unlike Verizon however, Sprint touts the ability to use the Treo 700wx as a modem.
Sprint’s previous Windows Mobile flagship device, the PPC-6700, has built-in Bluetooth DUN, allowing for seamless Phone-as-Modem Connectivity.
