I just did the http://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest/ speed test and got the following:
Download Speed: 133 kbps (16.6 KB/sec transfer rate)
Upload Speed: 78 kbps (9.8 KB/sec transfer rate)

Glad to be of any help to you. Enjoy your mobile internet.

Is there any way to get this method to work via bluetooth, or is that not an option for internet connection sharing? Thanks for the great tip!

This is the way I worked around vz access manager and you don't need a to do it. I am able to get on the internet on my laptop through my cell phone via bluetooth or USB.

Dial ##778
Click Edit
Unlock Code is 000000
Click View Info
Scroll Down to M.IP Default Profile
3rd row down is DUN NAI
Click DUN NAI and then click Menu
Then Edit
Change the Value to (yournumber)@vzw3g.com
example 7777777777@vzw3g.com
Click ok
Click Menu , OK
Should Soft reset and then you are good to go!
In fact I am typing this on my laptop which is bluetooth tethered to my TP2 right now!

Enjoy!

Eliteoomph,

Thanks for the reply. Maybe I am missing something. Up until today, I was paying for VZW tethering and was easily able to connect via bluetooth using DUN. After reading this thread, I created the shortcut to Internet Sharing (the one that came on the VZW TP2), connected via USB cable and was able to surf the internet on my laptop with no problem. I called VZW and canceled my tethering plan. I am still able to easily connect to the internet on my laptop using the Internet Sharing program via USB. My question is, can you use Internet Sharing via Bluetooth? There does not appear to be that option inside of the Internet Sharing program.

By the way, a big thanks for this thread. I am now saving $15/month (tethering) for the data I am already paying $45/month (corporate unlimited data) for. Also, a few quick checks on DSL Reports and I am averaging 1,700 up and 600 down on my TP2 connection. Unbelievable!

I am not sure I have never used the internet sharing program or done it that way.
I just dialed #778 and did it that way.
I am able to use bluetooth though.
You need to connect to your laptop via bluetooth
setup a Dial up network and see if it works
number is #777

Thanks for this info. I got the Bluetooth DUN sans $15/month working with the tweaks to the M.IP profile.

How does this method compare to ICS Bluetooth PAN?

Why was BT removed from ICS? Who decided to remove it, MS or VZW?

If ICS BT PAN offers better performance than BT DUN, is there a way to reinstall the complete ICS?

Thanks

The complete ICS is installed. What is missing is the PAN profile from the Bluetooth Stack. Verizon simply chose not to include it. I've been trying to find out it Sprint or Telus have it and if so, we should be able to grab the files.

This reply is random, I know.. but I thought I'd post my '3G' connection speedtest;

Download Speed: 1928 kbps (241 KB/sec transfer rate)
Upload Speed: 408 kbps (51 KB/sec transfer rate)

I'm about 15 minutes outside of Saint Paul, MN and I did the test to the IL datacenter on speakeasy.net/speedtest.
