This Howto will describe, how to set up a GPRS Internet connection using bluetooth device and compatible mobile phone.


  1. Linux compatible bluetooth device
  2. Bluetooth enabled mobile phone - I'm using Nokia N70


  1. Install bluez-utils, bluez-libs and dbus (install also ppp if you havent):
    pacman -S bluez-utils bluez-libs dbus
  2. Start dbus and bluetooth service:
    /etc/rc.d/dbus start
    /etc/rc.d/bluetooth start
  3. Scan for nearby bluetooth devices:
    hcitool scan
    Scanning ...
             00:19:79:89:13:8E      Penpen N70
    Now, mark that above address, it's the bluetooth hardware address of your mobile phone (provided that the name in the right matches what you have written in the phone).
