3855 Questions I bought my wife a 3855 to use at work. She really likes it but want to be able to use the Radio functionality that is listed. She would also like to connect to the Internet. I see Bluetooth when I am looking around on the IPAQ but have no idea how to enable or use. What additional items do we need to purchase?

Thank you in advance!

You would need a Bluetooth adapter in your desktop. As long as the desktop has an Internet connection (DSL, Cable Modem, etc.), you can share the connection with the iPaq. If you do not have a Broadband connection, you can buy a Bluetooth modem and use it to dial to the Internet. You would have to have a ISP Dialup account.

I have a broadband connection with a wireless network, so I need to get a Bluetooth adapter for my desktop? What about for the IPAQ?

The 3855 have the adapter built into it. At least, that is what the default HP statistics for the device says.
