Have you tried to add a mobile broadband connection under NetworkManager after pairing your phone? I do this with my Motorola SLVR.

That's odd, nokia's phones usually have bluetooth dun support. btw have you confirm that with other bluetooth software like bluez and wammu?

edit:
try sdptool:
$ sdptool browse

if your phone support dun, there should be a line like this "Service Name: Dial-up Networking" from your result
