Orange SPV m500 & OS X Over bluetooth. Possible?

After being alerted to the SPV m500 on the bargain forums I picked one up and so far I am really happy there is only one thing I cant get my head around.

I am trying to share my internet connection over bluetooth from my Mac Mini (running latest tiger) to the PPC. So far no joy at all. I can pair the m500 with the Mac (as "other device" not "cellphone/smartphone") Once it's paired however I cant really seem to do anything with it. I cant browse the device or create a bluetooth 'connection' to it. If I look in the BT sys pref pane I can see it there as a favourite but it says not connected.

I bought (grrr) missingsync from http://www.markspace.com but it doesnt appear to work with the m500

Anyone got any ideas?

Unfortunately the M500 has the very limited Microsoft bluetooth stack, rather than the decent Widcomm one as installed on other PocketPCs. This only supports a few profiles which doesn't include file transfer.

I'm not entirely sure how you'd go about this on a Mac, but with a PC you'd set up a bluetooth modem on the PC and connect the 2 using the serial port profile. You might get some info at the following sites (essential bookmarking for new PPC Phone users!):

Thought that might be the case. I noticed the profiles available were a bit light. I think it might be possible, as you say, to do this over a serial connection.
