"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Bluetooth would be the easiest, as it saves you having to carry an extra cord around.  Heres how to do it:

1) Download the following scripts
http://www.taniwha.org.uk/files/Nokia3G-2006-08.zip

2) Copy the 3 CID files into Library/Modem Scripts in Finder

3) Use the Setup Bluetooth device wizard to connect your Nokia N95 to your Mac. Make sure to tick the box with Access the Internet with your phones data connection.

4) Put in vendor details (try http://www.taniwha.org.uk/gprs.html if not sure)... for example:
    * Phone vendor: Nokia
    * Phone Model: GPRS (GSM/3G)
    * Username: vodafone
    * Password: vodafone
    * APN: live.vodafone.com
    * CID: 1

5) click continue, finalise

6) Now, when you have your phone connected by Bluetooth and select connect Bluetooth in your Macs modem prefs& it automatically connects over UMTS using your phones bluetooth connection.
