One more note for those stuck in the same place... - 05-26-2009, 05:41 PM
I don't seem to be able to get wvdial to work correctly but I ended up using gnome-ppp instead. If anyone figures out wvdial feel free to drop me a line.
Here's the 411 on getting Bluetooth 3G connection working...
create rfcomm.conf file (using other posts you'll find here which explain hcitool and sdptool )
download gnome-ppp (if you're not internet connected goto any PC and find the .deb file on the launchpad site and copy to USB stick - warning there may be dependancies too. Insert into Dell mini and right click on icon to install deb file).
Gnome-ppp needed a slight edit...
I'm on AT&T so I used username: email@example.com
and pass: CINGULAR1
goto setup and I chose /dev/rfcomm0
(If that doesn't work you'll need to do a 'sudo rfcomm bind 0 'MAC' 'Channel ' )
Goto Init String and you may need to remove +FCLASS=0 depending on the phone you have.
Once those edits were done and I had run sudo rfcomm to ensure the BT connection was running cleanly I was able to connect without issue.
- Good luck.
