I want to use my phone as dialup modem in the above mentioned operating system. I want to use PPPD in order to establish an Internet connection.I have already installed blueman (bluetooth manager), and my phone supports SPP profiles as opposed to Bluetooth-Dialup Networking profiles, but it too can be used to connect to the Internet.

I want to know how to configure PPPD and please describe the steps in detail.

    Rather do it in the official way :

    download this pc suite, or download pc suite drivers from the cd that came with the phone.

    create a connection and connect.
