    Re: How to use Nokia E71 as a modem

    To connect your Nokia handset as a modem, you first need to get installed Nokia PC suite in your laptop. You can download Nokia PC Suite from the official site of Nokia for free. The ways to connect your handset to laptop or pc is by Cable or bluetooth. but the easier way to connect is by USB Cable that you may have got with your phone.

    The cable will also allow for faster transfer speeds and give you longer battery life on the phone as it doesnít need to use two radios at the same time.To configure the cable connection, connect your phone and select PC Suite mode from the phone.Go to System Preferences and find the interface that was created. I renamed mine Nokia E71 to distinguish it from other interfaces. Choose vendor Nokia and model HSDPA. I put my providerís internet APN both in the APN field under Modem, and as the telephone number, as required by the script.

    If everything went according to plan you should be able to connect now. If it doesnít work, you may need to adjust the CID number under Advanced>Modem.

    Thats it..

    Please make sure that the Version of PC Suite you download is compatible with your Nokia device. Otherwise you won't be able to connect your phone to the laptop.
