    Specs:
    17" MacBook Pro 4GB Ram, LED HD display, 200GB 7200RPM HD, 2.6GHz Intel Core 2 Duo; Macbook 2.4Ghz
    What type of phone do you have? I have a Samsung A707 and if I connect to it from my MBP through bluetooth I have the option of using my phone as an internet connection through my service provider.
