  • What is Bluetooth?

‘Bluetooth’ is a proprietary open wireless technology standard for exchanging data over short distances (using short length radio waves) from fixed and mobile devices, creating personal area networks (PANs) with high levels of security.

For more information, please check Wikipedia or http://www.bluetooth.org/.

  • How can I know if my phone has Bluetooth support?

1. Check the user guide. Most modem phones have bluetooth support.

2. Goto to your phone’s settings to find Bluetooth. It most likely stays in “Connectivity” menu.

  • What is DUN?

Dial-up networking, a Bluetooth computer communications profile. This profile provides a standard to access the Internet and other dial-up services over Bluetooth. The most common scenario is accessing the Internet from a laptop by dialing up on a mobile phone, wirelessly. It is based on Serial Port Profile (SPP), and provides for relatively easy conversion of existing products, through the many features that it has in common with the existing wired serial protocols for the same task. These include the AT command set specified inEuropean Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) 07.07, and Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP).

Dial-up networking profile is supported by many mobile phones. your phone acts as a wireless modem which is connected to your laptop/PC via bluetooth.

  • How can I know if my phone support DUN?

First, you will have to make sure your phone support Bluetooth and Dial-up Networking. This can be found in the user guide coming with your phone. If you do not have a user guide. Try to find it on official websites of the vendor, Or Google.

If you confirmed that your phone supports Dial-up Networking. If will have to confirm your carrier/ISP support Dial-up Networking. You can call the support line of your carrier. and make sure you get all the settings required for Dial-up networking.

  • I have an Andriod phone,  does it support DUN?

Most andriod phone does not support DUN, but you can install PDANet to enable DUN in your phone.

  • Which settings/parameters are required to establish a Dial-up networking connection?

First, you need Access Point Name, aka “APN”(GPRS only). Which is a string indicate which network you are going to be connected in. For example, China mobile has two GPRS networks, there are one APN for each. “cmnet” is used for normal GPRS connections, your phone will get IP/GW/DNS settings from its server. Another APN “cmwap” is used for WAP connections, and proxy server is required for your phone to access internet.

Dial number. A number will be used to for the modem(phone) to dial in order to established the connection.

Here is a list of GRPS/3G settings http://modmyi.com/wiki/index.php/Carrier_APN_Settings

How can I confirm the DUN settings?

I would suggest you connect to the DUN service on your phone with your PC first.

  • Is iBluever compatible with my device?

iBluever boots up the Bluetooth controller using the same way with the built-in BTServer. So it is compatible with all iDevices which have a bluetooth chip. iPod Touch 2G, 3G and iPhone 2G, 3G, 3GS, iPad have been tested. iPad and or iPhone have not tested yet. I will test it with iPad after the jailbreak software for iPad released.

  • Do I have to jailbreak my device?


  • Is iBluever compatible with RoqyBT/RoqyGPS and BTStack?

You may have to do these:

1) Stop the RoqyBT/RoqyGPS/BTStack daemon if it is running.

2) Remove the pairing record on your phone

  • How can I turn on PPP debug on Windows?

first, open a cmdStart Menu->run->cmd[Enter]

and run type in these:

set tracing PPP enabled

Now a new file C:\WINDOWS\tracing\PPP.LOG will be created. It contains all PPP LCP/IPCP information about the connection.

To disable it, type in these:

set tracing PPP disabled
  • Is there any suggestion for Blackberry users?

Turn on “Authentication” in the Settings screen before connect. Some of your guys may need PDANet, when using it, do not forget to turn off the built-in “Dial up networking”

  • Why it is not based on BTstack?

BTstack is very good, and you can use BTstack keyboard/gps/mouse at the same time. But it is not good enough to support high speed data connections. It does not handle write() failures, l2cap/rfcomm re-transmission/caching, rfcomm flow control. Anyway it works great with low bandwidth applications such as keyboard/mouse/gps.

  • How to use the SBSettings Toggle?

When you had successfully connected to your phone. You will see the “Make  it as default” option. tap it, you will be able to use SBSettings to control iBluever.

  • Can I use Activator to turn iBluever on/off?

Yes, you can assign activator method to iBluever SBSettings toggle.

  • I have Celeste installed, after using Celeste, I can not use iBluever anymore!

Celeste use different link key database, so you will have to remove the bluetooth pairing records on both devices.

      I have the same thing in iphone 3g 16gb on 4.2.1. Demo is still working.when i install 1.5.8 full i get allways the waiting for daemon issue.

      Would be fair when we get support.

      • eric says:

        upgrade please

  21. wei says:


    Bought this iBluever from Cydia, worked great on my 3gs 3.1.2, but since my iphone crashed and I restored back to 3.1.2 this weekend, I cannot get this iBluever 1.5.8 working again. stuck at “retrieving daemon state..”. tried your method of removing the iBluever key files (remove /var/mobile/Library/iBluever/key/iBluever.key) and it doesn’t work for me. The interesting thing is that I tried the demo iBluerver and it still works, only when I install the bought version of iBluever that stuck at that message. No, I never tried the cracked version. Please help!

    One thing not sure if it related to thsi problem, I did try several time the past two days when Cydia was down due to the Amazon issue, and of cause I failed to install this iBluever App.

  22. Andy says:

    Where is that onDemand switch? I cannot find it but I see it in your screenshots

  23. Michael says:

    I downloaded iBluever demo and everything works great, but Verizon seems to block tethering. Is there any way around this?

    • eric says:

      Disable the built-in tethering, and install PDANet.

  24. Jason says:

    Hi, when I try activating it, it says failed to write key file. And also when I am installing the app there is a dependancy error and a subprocess error…please help!

    • eric says:

      What was the error?

  25. Adrian says:

    Why inst ibluever on the bigboss repo?
    i can only find the ibluever demo!?

  26. Nate says:

    So ibluever full version worked flawlessly yesterday and then all of a sudden with no setting changes it is stuck on “searching for dial up networking service” and doesn’t go any further. What do you think the issue could be? It definitely still connects to bluetooth.

    I’m using a blackberry 9700 with pdanet and an iPad 2

    • eric says:

      1. Did you tried any bluetooth app on your iPad?
      2. Try a reboot of your bb, make sure built-in dun if off and pdanet is on

  27. Jerome P says:

    Any luck Eric?

    • eric says:

      Done, do not activate it on other devices.

      • Jerome P says:

        A BIG thank u Eric!!!

        Great Software and support, $5 well spent!!!!

  30. Neighbor says:

    I really need someones help on this. I just got iBluever, best cydia app I’ve ever used! But im scared that it will charge my phone bill. I use an LG Banter and my carrier is US Cellular. I don’t have a tethering plan or anything like that, so how it still works is a mystery. I don’t think i have an internet data plan. Can someone please let me know if i will get charged? I don’t use a smartphone either.

  31. neil says:

    I have just downloaded the demo and have “retreiving daemon state …” and it just hangs and never connects / finds anything. I read the above and downloaded ifile to clear out the directory you noted, but there was nothing there. Im on a 3G iTouch with 4.3.5 IOS. Could you help? Know lots of people who would LOVE this if I can get it working as we have have work blackberrys and itouchs. Thanks

  32. Jimmy says:

    I need help! I bought the ibluever software to connect to my HTC touch 2 (windows mobile 6.5). I can connect to my phone from my ipod touch 3G but I cannot get internet connection! The phone alone works fine but I have tried every possible settings for the dial up networking but they all fail. Please help!

    I’m with starhub in Singapore

  33. Mic says:

    Hi Eric,
    I have several Apple devices under the same Cydia account. I,m trying to purchase iBluever on Taobao. Will one purchase be valid for all the devices or I have to make separate purchases individually?

  34. Amar says:


    After restoring my ipod 4g 5g to 4.3.2 and re-installing iBluever, I cant seem to make it work with my blackberry. They used to work fine together earlier ( India, Airtel, BB 9700, ipod touch 4g).

    I tried upgrading to ios 5. same result. it says PPP negotiating link and then disconnects.

    How do I send you the log?

    I upgraded my ibluever account, which is a paid version. Before the upgrade, on T-Mobile USA with blackberry 9700, everything worked.

    After the upgrade, it works once in a while, uses up battery, and I would really like to go back to where I was before the upgrade.

    How can I downgrade? Please help.
