*99# no user name or Password use APN internet

This is the same for all GSM / WCDMA networks around the world just the APN will change depending on carrier

Hi Paul,

There are better ways than the Bluetooth dongle. Bluetooth isn't as fast as other methods and you need to right protocols to get it to work.

What make and model phone do you have?  Most smart phones have the ability to act as a WiFi hotspot either with a built in app or an after market app.

Quite a few phones (not just smart phones) can be used as a modem using a USB connection, Nokia's do this through OVI or Nokia suite.
