Question Paired bluetooth phone as a modem, wvdial not working.

Alright I've pretty much fumbled around the net trying to piece things together and in IRC(not much help) to get this working. I can get the computer to pair with my phone. Now that I have it where the pairing is working, I just need to get the modem part working. I am using wvdial, rfcomm, and hcid.

Here are my configuration files. I cant seem to get wvdialconf /etc/wvdial.conf to work it cant seem to detect the modem. I've run
/etc/init.d/bluetooth restart
just to check the connection and make sure that was not the issue.

Is there anything I am missing? It seems what I am trying to do s taboo since no one seems to answer any of my question. Haha

Thank you,
