Mobily Internet via Nokia E51 as bluetooth modem

Well consulted too many sites to get this working so cant really mention all of them here :)
I will just put the main one here

AFAIK this was performed on Ubuntu 7.04. So in 8.10 it turned out to be a lot easier.

I will only post the differences here :) Yeah they call it laziness

In step1 you just need to left click the bluetooth icon and select "Set up new device". Make sure bluetooth is activated on your mobile and its publicly viewable. It will give you the code which you need to enter on your mobile to complete the pairing.

Step2 remains exactly the same. Be sure to restart bluetooth service after editing rfcomm.conf
sudo /etc/init.d/bluetooth restart

In Step3 I used wvdial instead of what this guy is using. Since I am familiar with it. Mobily does not require a username/password but I had to put dummy values since wvidal does not accept wvdial.conf with out it.

Here is my wvdial for mobily, Saudi arabia.

[Dialer mobile]
Init1 = ATZ
Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
Init3 = AT+CGDCONT=, ,"web1"
Modem = /dev/rfcomm0
Phone = *99***1#
Username = A
Password = B
New PPPD = yes
BAUD = 460800
Stupid Mode = 1
