You can do this one of two ways, there is a cable connection for connecting you phone to your laptop, or you can connect the phone to the laptop via the infra red port on both (assuming that they both have such a thing.

Many cellphones have an AT-command-set-compatible modem built in. Which means the phone behaves very much like a conventional serial modem. The connector goes into one of your computer´s serial ports.
You´d possibly need the right protocol configuration file for this phone ("modem description" for MacOS) if your system can´t work with the phone right out of the box. Try to get it from the phone´s manufacturer (if it didn´t come with the phone or the cable). It´s quite possible that several phones from the same manufacturer use the same modem commands, so you may not need an exact match.
