I'm trying to get my mobile to connect to the net via a bluetooth connection. I've phoned o2 up and we went through all the setting. I didn't confess that I was on a mac cos when I did last time they told me they couldn't help me as they didn't support mac.

I thought that it was all going well, he was saying you need this to be this and so on and I was coping. But when he said extra initialisation command, I was lost.

Does any one know where I can enter an extra initialisation command into my mac?

Is there an mac alternative for this?

How about telling us your phone model, the version of OS X you're running etc.

That way someone might be able to help you more.

Actually, getting bluetooth GPRS is the same for pretty much all phones and clients. The command you'll be needing is probably this:

*99***1#

where the 1 represents the first GPRS profile. If you want to use the second, use *99***2#, and so on. This is the telephone number you need to dial to get the connection to occur. I haven't got my mac with me, so I'll check when I get it, but I'm sure that's all I needed to get online with my O2 GPRS connection.
