There may not be a built-in way to activate it, but it'll be in
there... it's part of bluez. It may require some 3rd party work to
make it easy to get at.

The bluez daemon for this, dund, stands in as a virtual modem, so the
underlying network connection could be provided by gprs, wifi, pan, or
even another dun. For contrast, the windows mobile dun service
apparently connects the client directly to the gsm chip so it rules
out a lot of possibilities.
