When you pair the phone with your PC, do you get a choice (on the PC side) of which services to use on the phone? Is "Internet sharing" (or similar) one of them?

use system -> preferences -> blue tooth
your bluetooth modem should be detected by Linux. Make sure there is wvdial.conf file in /etc.

I think try the dial-up modem method with data cable.

Once you've set up the Bluetooth connection, you need to actually connect using the network indicator (an icon with one up- and one down-arrow in your taskbar). One of the network options should be your phone.
