bluetooth mobile broadband

hi, everbody.
so i just downloaded xubuntu 12.10 and used it as a live cd. i do not have a hard drive, so i cannot install it.
i tried connecting my nokia n95 to xubuntu using bluetooth. it paired successfully, but when i try to connect using mobile broadband (DUN), it says something like the settings are added in network manager. but when i click the "up down arrow thingy" in the panel, and click "edit", there is no configuration on mobile broadband tab. if i try to add my setting manually, i do not know how to use my created setting.
mobile internet works perfectly on ubuntu 10.10, 11.04 and 12.04, all in live session. maybe it has something to do with xubuntu's use of blueman instead of gnome-bluetooth or something. can anyone help me? thanks in advance
