    The answer is Maybe. If the Mobile phone supports tethering over BT, then yes you can do it. There's a number of posts on the subject if you did a search Here's a good one discussing how to do it Bluetooth Tethering for Xoom (no root needed)

    That said, GPRS data speeds are going to be extremely painful on a WiFi Xoom. Do you not have an internet connection at your house? Why not install a WiFi Router. I've got plenty of friends (and employees) who have family in India and when they visit their families they all have internet access (may be less than reliable, but they have it.)

    blutooth tethering not working

    Frinds:

    I have a Samsung GT-B7722 mobile (not droid). I use it to connect a PC to the internet via blutooth perfectly. I tried to do the same using my Xoom. It did pair it but it does not connect to it thus not giving me an opportunity to connect to the internet. Do I need to load andhy app on the Xoom? Any recommendation?
