Apparently, they've relented. This message is posted from my laptop, connected to my PPC-6700 via Bluetooth, using DUN (dialing #777). Network icon in the tray shows "BluetoothConnection Status" at 115.2 kbps. All other networking on the laptop is disabled: WiFi turned off; no Ethernet cable connected; 6700's USB cable disconnected; ipconfig /all shows just "PPP adapter BluetoothConnection" with a 68.27.x.x IP address - not part of my LAN.
I just posted a new thread and then found this one. That speed figure sounds like 1xRTT - has anyone been able to see/experience EVDO speeds on their laptop via bluetooth DUN?
