M quite excited about though with GPRS my experience over the last
6momths or so I've noted it's about the same speed as dial-up.
I'll have a look when I get my hands on a phone with a better
bluetooth stack (currently using an iPhone and it's sux when it comes
The setup is quite simple, you map a serial device with the hctool
then use wvdial to dial a magic number that allows the phone to tether
the GPRS connection to the PPP daemon.
Will post more detailed info soon..
