I'm tying to get my PowerBook connected to the internet using a GPRS phone via bluetooth.

I have an Orange SPV C500 (made by HTC and branded as a Motorola phone in America) that runs Windows Mobile 2003 SE and I'm running OS X 10.4.

I can get OS X to pair with the phone, but I can't get it to connect to the internet.

I found information here about it, but I still can't get it working with the scripts provided.

Does anyone have any idea how to get this working, or if it is even possible?

Do you have a GPRS data plan with your service provider? If not - if you don't expressly have a data plan for non-mobile-phone use (i.e., one that allows for more than using GPRS to use mobile phone services) - most providers won't let you through.

I have no problems using GPRS directly on the phone. I can browse the internet, etc... but the screen size is to small for it to be practical, which is why I'm trying to get it working with my PowerBook.

I have GPRS data service on my phone, and all I could get it to do was work to check my email. It never worked to browse, and now it won't even work to check email anymore.
