    Bluetooth modem: Mobile Broadband does not appear in Network Manager

    I have just installed 10.04 LTS on an eeepc. I have managed to get wireless broadband working through my Nokia E71 over a bluetooth connection by inserting my bluetooth dongle, running `rfcomm bind yes' then running `pppd call <chatscript>', using the /etc/bluetooth/rfcomm.conf and the instructions on a number of sites (eg "The old, hard way" on https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BluetoothDialup).

    I would like to simplify this by making Mobile Broadband available through Network Manger. When I right click on the applet icon, there is no option to enable Mobile Broadband. I have set up a wireless broadband account (under Edit Connections).

    I've tried fixing this by running the Blueman applet and selecting `connect to Dialup Network', but I get a dialog saying `CDMA or GSM not supported'.

    Can anybody help here?

    I seemed to have cracked this one - see this wiki with my addition at the end on automation: http://blog.chewearn.com/2010/09/30/...ia-n95-part-2/
