    Default phone as modem

    hello all.
    I wonder how can i use my phone as GPRS modem. It is a nokia n80.
    I've been looking but i can't make it work! i have tried some tutorials, like this and this but is not working. I already configure my phone and it is currently connected to the GPRS network without problems.
    This weekend i need to go to a rural area lost in time!!! Any help will be highly appreciated!!!
    Thanks!

    I've solved my problem! was a misconfiguration of the /etc/wvdial.conf.
    Now the next step is to get it work without the data cable, using bluetooth. I am still trying to figure out this.

    Hi
    You need to edit the /etc/bluetooth/rfcomm.conf file with the modem
    channel on the phone. You can find this by using the rfcomm -a (on the
    blackberry it's channel 4)

    I've finally finished my bluetooth configuration. It wasn't that hard and works quite well!
    Here is a good manual.
    Thanks a lot.
