Hi,

Is there a way of using my Orange Samsung D600e to allow my Powerbook to surf the net when wifi isn't present. I've heard bits about using it via GPRS.

So far I've managed to browse certain files from my Mac on the phone but I really wan't to be able to switch off airport and get a connection via my mobile. Any tips? Is it possible?

I also have an old Nokia 6230e handset I might try if no one has any advice re: Samsungs

Are there any simple tutorials?

Thanks

Aaron

If you go to Bluetooth settings on the phone, can you select how you use the phone?

Not directly no...

Kinda scratching my head. It may be eluding me.

I don't have a web account I can dial into so I've never tried.
