    After reading thousands of post and threads on the ned about setting up your Storm as a Bluetooth modem I wanted to to write a clear and easy way af doing this.

    It works if you are using Leopard and if you have a 9500 Storm.

    I've only tested this in the Netherlands with the following networks;

    - T-Mobile
    - Vodafone

    So here's what you do:

    1. Pair your storm with your Mac
    - Make sure you enabled the networksharing option (but it is enabled by default so....)

    2. Go to systempreferences, network

    3. Add a bluetooth network (not bluetooth pan!!!)
    and give it the name you prefere.....

    4. Very important is that you have the correct APN settings from
    your network.

    5. In the networkbox you can see: Telephone#
    Account(name)
    Password

    For Vodafone use the following information:

    Telephone:live.vodafone.com
    Account:vodafone
    Password:vodafone

    6. After this, hit the advanced button...

    Select the "general" modem in the first box
    in the second select GPRS (GSM/3G)
    and in the APN field you fill in:live.vodafone.com
    CID:1

    Hit O.K.
    Now in the Network box hit apply...
    and you're done to use the Storm 9500 as bluetooth modem.
    No need to download modemscripts or whatever..

    Good luck...
