DUN = Dial Up Network(ing), so it's using your 6165 in this case as a tethered modem. It's an alternative to an Aircard, but Nokia phones run on CDMA 1xRtt, so speed max out at 153kbs.

Okay, but remember, if you are going to use your mobile phone for data that the casual rate you are probably signed up to is horribly expensive!  Dick Smith have a Buetooth dongle, and also a Bluetooth data suite (for Nokia) on their site, I did a bit of looking around by searching on bluetooth.  you should find them there.

The casual rate for mobile broadband data is around $8 per mb, which is lower than the $10 per mb that another provider offers.

However the plans can be viewed here.
