Internet & Networking We will try to get a GPRS internet connection using Linux-based phones as modems and route the connection to Mac OS X via Bluetooth. This guide is for Mac OS X, the US Cingular GPRS service only (other providers might work out of the box with the phone, others might not at all -- you never know with GPRS) and any of the Linux-based Motorola smartphones like the A760, A780, E680/i etc (they are all identical regarding their 'modem' functionality).

Thanks for the reply.

Can you expand then, please, what is Bluetooth supposed to do in the Sharing system preferences? I see that you already mentioned that one could "share a bluetooth connection to another network interface (e.g. WiFi), but not from another network interface *to* Bluetooth device". But I still cannot make out what that means exactly, or what this literal (transl. from Spanish) setting means: "Share connection from Bluetooth with computers that use Ethernet/Firewire/Airport".

What would that accomplish? What would you use that with, for instance? (the Help System is quite lacking on that)
