I have created a Mobile Broadband connection using Bluetooth in Ubuntu 12.04 but it is missing in the network manager icon on the top panel of the desktop.

How should I solve this problem? When I create a connection using DSL, it is displayed in network manager. But why it is not displaying for Mobile Broadband connection?

I think it might be beneficial to know what kind of phone it is, and who your service provider is. Please edit your question to to reflect this information. –  TheX Sep 28 '12 at 16:09

Maybe you should not use Bluetooth but connect your pc using USB modem instead since it may not be able to detect your mobile device.

your cell phone modem is not compatible with Ubuntu.... most of these type of problem arises with nokia phones.

So there is only one way to come out if it is either you change your cellphone or you may get connected through USB wire.
