How to set up bluetooth DUN?

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – In the past, I have used USB and/or built-in wireless broadband devices that the system detected (I assume) and set up the software appropriately at install time. I have a netbook and after setting everything up, I later added a bluetooth dongle which it uses easily. I was able to connect to my phone without trouble... or at least it appears to. In the network manager applet, there are only two connection types available. Wired and wireless. On my laptop with built-in wireless broadband, there is a 3rd option for wireless broadband. How do I enable this option in this case? I have installed any and all packages I imagine could be relevant including wvdial and all that. I have restarted Network Manager and even the whole machine numerous times. When right-clicking on NetworkManager and doing "Edit Connections" I am able to manually add an entry for mobile broadband, but it is never accessible in any way. What am I not doing? What am I doing wrong? (HowTos)
