    Hi guys, please could someone help me with this? I'm trying to connect my Macbook Pro to the internet via bluetooth getting the internet connection from my Samsung Tocco Lite mobile phone.

    Following another thread on an O2 forum (going to system preferences, networks etc.), I think I got most of the way there, but after attempting to connect it disconnects and says that it can't connect properly (sorry I can't remember the exact message, I'll check again later and put it on here).

    Can anyone provide a detailed/fool proof way of doing it for me?

    Thanks in advance :apple:

    Your phone needs to support Bluetooth PAN. First, pair your MBP with your phone via bluetooth. Turn on tethering or whatever needs to be turned on your mobile phone to make it share the data connection via Bluetooth.

    After that is done, you should be able to access the net via your phone.
