Is there any way to tether a non-rooted Android phone? I have a Moto Cliq with 2.1. I tried PDANet, It pairs, but won't connect.

Phone: Moto Cliq
OS: Android 2.1 (non-rooted)

Archos: A70
OS: 2.2.1

Tether success: No

Same.

Phone: Iphone 3g
OS: Newest
Tethering Allowed

Tablet: Archos 70it
OS: Newest

WHen I first bought it, I got it to tether for hours.
Now, after honestly 10 hours trying EVERYTHING including reformatting of both devices, unpairing, repairing, resetting, rebooting, I can't get it to work.

YET, the website says 'most phones' can be bluetooth tethered.
I am getting the impression that these devices are not all that they are suppose to be.
I will try USB tethering tonight. Hopfully that works even though I can't get ITUNES on my tablet.

Blackberry Curve 9300 with T-Mobile will NOT tether with Archos 32 running Froyo. It does find the right APN however. It will tether with Windows 7 and nokia N800 running a flavor of Linux, so Archos' cop-out that some 3G Blackberries don't support tethering is wrong, but it still may be a Blackberry issue. I had the same issue a couple of years ago with Linux, and it required a Blackberry firmware upgrade to get it going. Maybe the pressure needs to be put on Blackberry.

It took a lot of tries before tetheing worked, but once its up andrunning, its quite stable. Througput isnot that great though, maxing out at about 500k. Is that really as good as it gets?

Works With HTC HD2
OS. WinMo 6.5

Archos 101 with Froyo

APN : epc.tmobile.com
No username or password

Works great.
You first need to pair the device and set the HD2 to always pair with the Archos.
From there it is full auto. On the Archos i turn on bluetooth and then press the phone tether button a few seconds later it connect and I'm on the net.
