Step 3: Set Up the Internet Connection

In Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard, the Bluetooth Setup Assistant forges ahead to prompt you for the information that the phone needs to set up the Internet connection.

  1. In the Bluetooth Mobile Phone Set Up screen (see Figure 7), provide the information you got from your Internet provider to connect to the Internet for broadband access. You also might want to turn on the "Show Modem status in the menu bar" check box, so that you can see the connection status when you’re online (or if you’ve been dropped unexpectedly). Then click Continue.

    Palm (maker of the Treo), Treo, and Verizon are not included in the drop-down lists. It’s as if Apple doesn’t know that they exist. (Humph.) But when I chose Other, Verizon Support (PC 5220) automatically appeared in the Phone Model pop-up menu—and I didn’t install any Palm, Treo, or Verizon software.

  2. A conclusion window appears, summarizing what has been done (see Figure 8). Click Quit.
