I've tried connecting my iBook G4 to the internet by GPRS using my Samsung SGH-E760 cell phone. Depending on the "modem" which I select in the Bluetooth Modem section in Network Settings, I get different results... most of the time I get a script error before it even tries to connect, but sometimes I almost get connected. In these cases, the error I get in the Connection Log window is "LCP terminated by peer (PDP context activation failed, no network protocol running)" It seems that it's almost connected at that time, because the messages before that one are "Remote message: Login OK" and "PAP authentication succeeded". When I try to connect to the internet on the cell phone, everything works well, so the GPRS settings on the cell phone are probably ok.

Can anyone help me fix that problem? I've tried looking for some information on the internet, but it seems that either I'm the first person ever trying to connect to the internet using a Samsung E760, or I'm the first person ever who has a problem with it... A modem script made for that cell phone also doesn't seem to exist anywhere...
