I was made aware of wvdial interface in Linux, however I'm not aware of the commands to use. How can I use this to share internet on my phone via bluetooth? How can the commands be available and how do I know if my phone is compatible with wvdial? What is the connection speed

To configure wvdial, execute the following command as root in the terminal: # wvdialconf /etc/wvdial.conf. This examines your system and builds the template configuration file “/etc/wvdial.conf”. The created template configuration file needs to be edited because it is still not functional. The unedited or unmodified template configuration file looks like this:

[Dialer Defaults]
Modem = /dev/modem
Baud = 115200
Init1 = ATZ
Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 S11=55 +FCLASS=0
ISDN = 0
; Phone = <Target Phone Number>
; Username = <Your Login Name>
; Password = <Your Password>

You need to modify the last 3 lines of the file and removing the semicolon at the beginning. The following is only an example:

[Dialer Defaults]
Modem = /dev/modem
Baud = 115200
Init1 = ATZ
Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
ISDN = 0
Phone = 15625551100
Username = bill100
Password = donttell

To make a connection, run the following command in the terminal: # wvdial &. If the output of the command confuses you, you can direct the output of the command to a file by running the following command in the terminal: # wvdial 2>/tmp/wvdial.messages &. If something goes wrong with wvdial, you can check the file by running the following command in the terminal: # less /tmp/wvdial.messages.

You can now surf the web using your web browser. To end your internet connection, run the following command in the terminal: # killall wvdial.
