How do I tether a nokia e71 to my macbook running Leopard on AT&T service with USB cable and Bluetooth?
1 Solution
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

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.
