01-04-2006, 09:15 PM #1Using Bluetooth & Mobile Phone to connect to the internet
Heres the deal,
Im a pay monthly customer currently on Orange (UK).
I have a 12" iBook G4 with bluetooth and a Samsung D500 Mobile Phone.
I have been trying to get the phone to act as a modem but everytime i try and set it up using bluetooth it asks me for the following:
Username, Password and a GPRS CID String?
Where do i find this information to enter?

I'm also in the UK and use a powerbook-bluetooth-mobile in 'dail-up' mode (rather than GPRS) and it works fine, if slow. You'll need a dail-up account - I use Virgin (and also one with a local phone number).

Is the account a pay as you go dialuop account?
I know with my windows laptop i can connect my phone to it via infa-red and the samsung studio software i use for some reason just lets me connect to the internet as near on ISDN speed.
I was just wondering if there were some simple details i could put in that would allow my iBook to connect in a similar way?
