For most of this, I followed the instructions at
UPDATE: more instructions specific to the UpStage at
It wasn't hard once I found that page, but there might have been a few steps I missed. Let me write down what I know I did, and then go back and fix any missing spots.
THIS IS A DRAFT. It really wants to have screen shots or even heaven help us a screencast of the whole thing. When I set this up the first time it was on the train - I bootstrapped the configuration using my Blackberry's browser to find the nodrm site above. I *think* I was stuck a few times along the way, and I doubly think that the missing step that changed between OS releases was the need to get the serial port configured (below, under Bluetooth / Sharing). Comments welcome.
1. Pair your phone with your computer. Turn the phone on; turn Bluetooth on on the phone; turn the computer on, and turn Bluetooth on on the computer. When you get a passkey on the Mac's screen, punch it in on the phone.
System Preferences / Bluetooth / Settings:
Bluetooth Power: On
[x] Show Bluetooth Status in the menu bar
System Preferences / Bluetooth / Devices
Device Name: UpStage
Device Type: Phone
Device Services: Object Exchange, BTA_FTS, HSP Gateway, HFP Gateway, Advanced Audio source, Dialup Networking
Serial Port: Yes
System Preferences / Bluetooth / Sharing
on key service name
[x] [ ] SerialPort-1
if you don't see a serial port, select "Add Serial Port Service" to add one.
2. Set up the phone as a modem. In the Bluetooth setup assistant, pick "access the internet with your data connection". Keep the user name and password fields blank, and use #777 as the phone number. Use "Sprint PCS Vision" as the modem script. Add the modem to you toolbar so it's easy to get to. I got error messages about not having a serial device when I did this the first time, and I had to go back and add the serial port in under Bluetooth / Sharing see above.
3. To connect, click on the modem toolbar and then select "connect". It will dial, and if you have service it will connect for you. Speeds will vary depending on cell coverage and the phase of the moon.
