Nokia E71, Mac OS X 10.5.6, SFR, modem
By user12587121 on Feb 06, 2009
The ginger dolphin and I regularly rediscover how to use our Nokia E71 mobile phones as modems for our Macs, connecting over Bluetooth via SFR. It does work, but sometimes it seems to get stuck in a 'Disconnecting' state. Logout/Login to the Mac to clear that.
The setup is as follows:
1. Get the modem scripts from here
2. Unzip/copy them to "/Library/Modem Scripts"
3. Set up a Bluetooth connection called NokiaE71 for your phone
3.1 Network Preferences-> + ->Bluetooth
3.2 Enter websfr for the Telephone Number
3.3 Hit Advanced
3.4 Configure as shown
3.5 Take your E71 and ensure that Bluetooth is turned on: Menu->Tools->Settings->Connection->Bluetooth
3.6 Network Preferences->NokiaE71->Set up Bluetooth Device
3.7 Hit '+' and allow the wizard to discover your phone
3.8 You now have a Bluetooth connection which can connect to your phone and use it as a modem.
4. To use it:
4.1 Network Preferences->NokiaE71->Connect
It will connect to your phone--you must accept the connection on the phone.
