    I thought I'd tackle an impossible task: PDANet, Bluetooth tethering, and Linux (Ubuntu 9.10 in this case).

    Well, here's the interesting behavior:

    The phone is paired, and with PDANet running on the 8350i, wvdial can successfully negotiate the faux-modem in /dev/rtcomm0. But pppd never negotiates, it merely spits out a little garbage repetitively (when running wvdial from the command line instead of from gnome-ppp).

    Incidentally, wvdial can dial the faux-modem in PDANet, yet a real terminal program (minicom, in this case) can't get so much as a byte of garbage out of the port.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Code:
    --> WvDial: Internet dialer version 1.60
    --> Cannot get information for serial port.
    --> Initializing modem.
    --> Sending: ATZ
    OK
    --> Sending: AT
    OK
    --> Modem initialized.
    --> Sending: ATDTS=2
    --> Waiting for carrier.
    CONNECT
    --> Carrier detected.  Starting PPP immediately.
    --> Starting pppd at Tue Apr  6 21:38:15 2010
    --> Pid of pppd: 13342
    --> Using interface ppp0
    --> pppd: ��� ��� 
    --> pppd: ��� ���
