Bluetooth modem

 Hi all,

I'm thinking of getting a T-Mobile G1 as a replacement for my existing
Windows Mobile PDA. So far as I can tell it will have everything I
want bar one, namely TomTom. I have bought TomTom Navigator for the
PDA and also pay for a Traffic subscription.

Since I'll only have one tariff with unlimited data (on the G1), what
I'd like to be able to do is use the G1 as a bluetooth modem that the
PDA can use to download the live traffic data.

Is there support in Android for networking over Bluetooth?
Alternatively, is there and application I can get that will do this?
Lastly if the answer to both is no (and given that I am a software
developer by trade), would this be possible using the appropriate

Thanks in advance for your help and advice,

 Join the club.

Unfortunately it's not possible with a stock G1 due to limitations in 
the firmware, but hopefully T-Mobile will see the light soon.

1. Solved Preferences Reset Problem

A while ago, I posted (see links below) about a problem with my app.
Whenever the app was killed by the OS, either memory cleanup or device
restart, all the preferences were reset.  Since my app worked entirely
from those preferences, it made it pretty much useless.

I found out that persistent for SharedPreferences is not turned on by
default.  If you add the following attribute to the root element,
PreferenceScreen, of your preferences xml file, then it will turn
persistence on and your preferences will not get reset any more.


I hope this helps some of you out there, as it was very frustrating
for me.
