You ought to check out the maccellphone Yahoo group. Also, check out JR Chang's webpage (http://homepage.mac.com/jrc/contrib/mobile_office/) .

You'll have to find out if your phone is capable of acting as a modem (the mere fact that you can access the net with the phone itself doesn't mean it can act as a modem). If it can, then there's two ways you can do it, with a phone cable or Blueooth. If your phone AND your PowerBook has Bluetooth, that's the way to go. If not, you'll need a phone cable to connect the phone to your PowerBook's modem jack. Then you can dial out for internet access just like if you're plugged in a wall phone jack. Just be prepared to have a very s l o w internet experience.
