    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:-,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:-

    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 :-

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