    I am trying to tether my nokia 5800 to my MBP via blue tooth thats running snow leopard.

    Following this guide i can go right up to step 8, but then in step 8 I dont see that option of "access the internet with your phones data connection".

    Has this been changed in SL or something? all the steps are slightly different than whats displayed there, but minutely so... so i have managed so far.

    Please help.

    you have to download the isync plugin


    1.download the exact one
    2.then sync it
    3.go set up the bluetooth
    APN for t-mobile is wap.voicestream.com, it doesnt need the other stuff
    for att:Username:WAP@CINGULARGPRS.COM
    if different then search for the APN

    go to network preference
    click bluetooth side bar
    and connect

    if it doesnt work goto advance in the network preference and fill out the info under the modem tab.

    Thanks for replying, but I sold the macbook and am back on my Acer C2D and very happy with it, will never be going back to Macs.

    I do appreciate you taking the time to reply though and wish you a very nice day
