Look guys it's quite simple really. There's a 17 point guide on page 104 of the manual - easy peasy.

1. On your device, tap Start > Programs > Wireless Modem

Errr, anyone else see 'Wireless Modem' listed? No? Doh! :)

I am trying to get the same thing working myself using an O2 XDA Exec and a iBook G4 but so far have only managed to get a connection established and no data transfer.

I used the advice from this website:

http://homepage.mac.com/jrc/contrib/tzones/

and the modem scripts from this one:

http://www.taniwha.org.uk/gprs.html

I'd be interested to hear if you get it working as I am stuck with the iBook saying that there is "no carrier" even though I know my account is set up for data access.

My first thought was "why don't you just get proper PCs like normnal people?" but I rrealised that wasn't being very constructive so I had a look at those sites.

I know didly squat about MACs but the thing that struck me first was the Telephone number they were useing (*99***2#) - I would be tempted to try the standard GPRS connection of *99# as this is what all carriers use as default GPRS conncetion - I don't know what the extra characters are.

Also the site for the O2 settings had IP addresses - try leaving as server asigned.

And you could try

APN (access point) mobile.o2.co.uk

User: mobileweb

Password: password

I have no idea if any of these suggestions will have any affect as I have never tried myself so I could be talking out of ny a%se....

Unfortunately not!

While I've had several people email me with suggestions after my recent blog post (see the comments on the post) I haven't managed to get it working. My conclusion is that the bluetooth stack is borked. If anyone has any suggestions, I'm certainly willing to have a go though...

Considering all my previous Nokia phones have worked out of the box I'm actually pretty annoyed by this problem, far more than the fact I can't sync the phone with my laptop properly...

Thought you had this solved?

Searching on google for "spv m5000" AND "mac os x" brings up a few links... yours is there too, and was going to refer you to it.

I give that impression? Nope, definitely not...

While I can now register the phone's dial-up networking stack as a Bluetooth Modem, actually trying to use it gives me a "No dial-tone" error. This normally means that you're using the wrong GPRS access point, but in this case I don't think that's the problem as I don't get any indication that a bluetooth connection has actually been made (no icons appear, or any other indication that anything is going on at all). I'm stumped, and have pretty much given up.
