I think most Nokia phones (Symbian, for one) can do direct data connection 
from the laptop, w/o tethering.

I have the X3-02. I have configured one ppp connection, using standard "ifcfg" 
+ "/etc/ppp/peers" files for it. 
This means, over bluetooth, I can simply call "ifup ppp2" and get an internet 
connection wherever I am. 

Say NO to spam and viruses. Stop using Microsoft Windows!
