During the weekend, I tried connecting my Nokia E90 to my Macbook, running OS X 10.5.4 Leopard, with the hope of getting Internet access through the phone.
Surprisingly, it turned out to be simple. Very simple in fact. Here are ten detailed step-by-steps.
1. Download and install Nokia iSync support for your phone.
2. Connect Mac to Nokia phone via Bluetooth. Click on Bluetooth icon, then select Setup Bluetooth Device.
3. Bluetooth Setup Assistant should appear. Click Continue.
4. Select Mobile Phone, click Continue. Turn on Bluetooth on your phone, make it Discoverable.
5. Mac should be able to find your phone. If no, make sure that Bluetooth on your phone has been turned on and it’s Discoverable.
6. Select your phone and click Continue. Wait for your Mac to gather information about your phone.
7. With Nokia E90, the following options appear. Tick both, then click Continue.
8. Bluetooth Setup Assistant will ask you more details on your connection. For me, since I uses Starhub, I only need to put in APN value shwap, left username and password empty, and clicked Continue. This is potentially the most difficult step of all as it need you to find out what is the APN name for your mobile phone data connection.
9. When everything goes well, you’ll be congratulated Click Quit.
10. Go to System Preferences -> Network. Select Bluetooth and click on Connect. Voila, that’s it !! Your Macbook should now be able to connect to Internet using your mobile phone data plan. To be sure, I turned off my Airport, launched Firefox, and browsed to Google. It works !!
If you go to Connection Manager in your phone, you should see an active connection established.
