    Hi, Could someone please help me with setting up the bluetooth so that I can use my mobile phone to access the internet on my mac.

    I have an LG phone but there isnt an LG option in the dropdown bar, does LG perhaps have another name thats in the list.

    Also what do i put in the username, password and phone number sections?

    I have tried to do it but it has failed.
    Thanks.

    Can you explain this:
    "so that I can use my mobile phone to access the internet on my mac"

    Are you trying to tether, using your phones internet connection to surf on the mac?

    Have you turned bluetooth "on" on the device?

    Ok I want to surf on the internet on my mac using my phones data, via the bluetooth function.

    Bluetooth is on both mac and phone. Im having problems actually connecting to the phone, I use the wizard but my phone wont actually connect to the data service function although it does pair with my mac.

    Im using an LG phone, but there isn't an LG selection in the drop down menu, so I was wondering if I can select another one to mirror the LG phone or if LG phones might have another name?
