I use my cellphone through bluetooth frequently. Charges vary by provider. Suncom allows unlimited access for $5/month, and Cingular is $20. I am not sure about the others, but I believe they are all $80+/month. I personally use Cingular using a motorola v551. If you can get CSD enabled on your account, you can also use the "free" dial-up using a cell phone as a modem. All you use then are minutes out of your package. It is typically very slow though (9600-14400). By paying $20/month to Cingular, I am able to use there EDGE connection, which not only doesn't use your minutes, but allows you to still make/recieve calls while connected to the internet. It is still by no means "fast", but it is bearable. In EDGE areas I usually get around 110Kbps (roughly twice landline dial-up). In areas that haven't been upgraded to EDGE yet and still use GPRS, I only get around 40Kbps.

That couldn't be farther from the truth. I have been using bluetooth to connect for over a year and a half. I was using a SonyEricsson until last month. I am now using a Motorola. I do also know for fact that bluetooth enabled Nokias allow you to connect through bluetooth FWIW, my SE was able to connect through both bluetooth and infrared. My Motorola is capable of USB or bluetooth connection.
