AppleScripts ease internet sharing with Bluetooth phones Internet
I've seen this touched upon in some of the comments to other posts on the site. But for a while, I was struggling with a way to share my Mac's internet connection with my Nokia 3650 over Bluetooth. Basically, I wanted to do this not so much for web browsing on the small screen, but in order to be able to sync Avantgo without blowing through my mobile data allowance in one fell swoop.

Most of this information is covered in this thread on Apple's discussion site. But it takes a lot of reading. And even if you follow all the instructions, sometimes the DNS still will not resolve (although navigating to sites via IP addresses is possible). So in any case, I created a few Applescripts, one to disconnect and one to reconnect the internet sharing to your Bluetooth cellphone, complete with a detailed Read Me file that has the full how to and linkage to all the places where I got my info from.

You can download my Share2Blue2th scripts from my mac.com homepage -- [37.8KB download]. The code that is implemented in the scripts is available on the discussion board linked above. Cheers!

Anybody know how to get this to work with a SonyEricsson T610? How should I configure the phone?

I'm not sure what the setup on the T610 looks like, although i am trying to get my friend jason who has one to test it for me. In theory, you should be able to read through the instructions for setting up the 3650 in the Read Me file and do virtually the same changes in the corresponding fields on your t610. Basically, setting up your computer as a GPRS access point. If you go through the steps and get it working, please post it back here or email me and let me know so I can add a T610 section to the Read Me file. Good luck!

Sorry for my stupid question (maybe..), but how can I browse the web from my 12" iBook using just the DSL connection of my iMac and BT usb adaptors?
I got not BT access point and see a bad idea for my pourposes to buy airport base + 2 adaptors when I already have 2 BT/usb keys...
Someone can help?

I downloaded your scripts and they are the only thing that has worked to share my internet access with my Palm Zire. So thanks for your work! But I loose the connection after a few minutes and have to run the script again. Any suggestions? Thanks!

iBook
10.3.9
Palm Zire 72s
