I have an Internet connection on a MacBook Pro and a Nokia mobile. Is it possible to share the MacBook Pro's Internet with the Nokia phone?

What phone do you have? If you don't have WiFi but do have Symbian on your Nokia, it should be possible to do this with bluetooth and an extra app:

The explanation is for a Windows PC, but hopefully it'll work on a Mac too, since it's Java.

If you don't have Symbian (ie a Nokia s40) phone, I don't think this is possible.

well that has symbian, so this solution should work. but it seems to also have WLAN, so the other answer could be a possibility too. – newenglander Jul 28 '11 at 11:19
