I've got a little old D-Link DBT-120 adapter that worked
(in some sense of the word) the last time I tried it.

My problems with "working" were related to trying to setup
a permanent connection to a bluetooth keyboard which was
hopelessly broken at the time I tried, but I could manually connect
with enough poking and prodding everytime I logged in (rendering
the wireless keyboard for use on the other side of the
room useless since I had to get up and walk over to the
computer to get it connected every time I wanted to use
it :-).

Are you certain that this is the only way you can tether to your phone?

Modern phones also offer a mini or a micro USB jack. Just for giggles, I
plugged my new Nokia via the USB cable. The phone automatically offers me a
"PC Suite" or "Data Storage" connection mode. In data storage mode, I get a
boring mount of the SD card inside the phone. If I choose "PC Suite", the
"Mobile broadband" option in Network Manager appears out of nowhere, and I
get a menu entry to set up a new broadband GSM connection.


Since I do not have a data plan I haven't really tried it, but it certainly
looks like it will work.

I'm not sure of the exact model as my USB dongle came with my HP
printer but I've gotten it to work with gammu and my Motorola V195
phone. Below is the output from /var/log/messages:
