    The story so far:
    Using the bluetooth wizard i have connected to my nokia 5800 and am able to browse etc.

    Now i want to teether the nokia and share my 3g connection with my MBP when on the move, so i went into bluetooth->advanced-> share and i am here:
    (see screenshot)

    now which options do i select to tether it?
    Unfortunately i dont see my phone model there, does that mean somethings wrong?

    Thanks!

    No you need to use the bluetooth setup thingy (bluetooth setup assistant), and pair your phone as a modem.

    Have you tried going to Network preferences? If you don’t have Bluetooth listed, click the little + and add it.

    Hey!

    It works!

    I called up my mobile operator and they "reauthorized" me or something and told me to try again... and it works!

    Thanks everyone for your help!

    I guess this thread is closed now, thanks again!

    Cheers!
