        I use BT to my 6620 and it works great. You need some sort of data service for the phone and the Nokia software on the PC.

            You need GPRS on your phone, you have to pay for it from your service provider. (T-Mobile, Sprint, Cingular, etc).

                Your phone needs bluetooth and your computer needs bluetooth to connect that way. The 802.11 stuff you're talking about is WIFI, different from GRPS. If you don't have bluetooth on your phone then you will need a Serial/USB data cable to interface the phone with your computer.

                  get ready to pay, depending on the carrier it can get real expensive real quick... Cingular just gave up there good plan... for unlimited surfing it is $80/month...

                  g1smo...as far as bluetooth vs 802.11... I think you missed the way it works... bluetooth to phone is option#1... 80211 is option#2... totally separate, you can have one or the other OR both, but they have no connection between them...

                  next time you have a question, try to post all the important information... like what cell phone company, what you are looking for (download music/files or just weather info), it would be nice to know what country you are in.. based on your wording and typing it seems that you are not in UK or USA... so things will be different based on these pieces of info...

                      Again more specs, PC, Mac, Linux? Which versions of the operating system? You need to provide full details for us to be able to help you.

                        There are 2 options to connect to the internet wirelessly using your carPC (or home PC).
                        Option 1: 802.11 WiFi, you can connect to it if you are within range and the Access point (AP) is open for you to use. There maybe some legal isssues here regarding to unauthorize connect to some one network, but that is a different thing. With this option, all you need is an 802.11 WiFi adapter (PCI, USB, PCMCIA).

                        Option 2: Using your cell phone carrier as data provider. If your cell phone carrier provide/has GPRS and your phone is capable of. You have to pay your cell service provider/carrier for them to turn the option on for you to use. With this option, you have to buy for the service (just like DSL), phone capability , connection between cell phone and PC (Bluetooth, data cable, ... IrDA). Technically this is broad band internet for cellular phone and called GPRS and your cell phone a broad band modem. DSL is broad band internet for home/land line phone.

                            Hi there,


                            You might want to check up on Nokia's web site for the drivers to enable the 6600 (a.k.a Fatboy) to act as a modem. The link is as follows:-

                            http://www.nokia.com/nokia/0,8764,42290,00.html

                            Once you've got the driver, you should be able to connect using the Fatboy. If you can't theres a few forums on the net that I seriously recommend for you to have a look at:-

                            www.allaboutsymbian.com

                            www.i-symbian.com

                            These 2 sites are Symbian centric and contain a wealth on information on the Symbian OS thats running on the 6600 and other Symbian Series 60, 80 and 90 phones.

                            A specific thread on getting GPRS to work on the 6600 with the Cingular network is located here :-

                            http://www.mobiledia.com/forum/topic16201-0-asc-10.html

                            Hope this helps. By the way, Symbian ROCKS!!
