The first step to be taken is for the phone user to be sure that the phone can synchronize wit pc for internet services & ph0ne gallery, or phone gallery only . ,because s0me ph0nes DON'T WORK WIT PC SUITE and were n0t designed to synchr0nize wit pc for packet data transfer services

Let solve this issue people face while attempting to browse on their PC with their mobile phone

Hows this a problem? I browse conveniently in d comfort of my room evryday with my laptop using my phone. i think d main issue has got to do with the configurations and settings on d network and d phone. To me these are the basic things.

saw dis topic n since i use nokia pc suite decided 2 share dis info wit u guys
1st of all u cant browse on yr pc wit ur nokia phone if pc does not recognise ur phone or installs d modem for dat fone even if it connnects wit d phone
To configure ur phone as a modem if not recognized automatically:
- Go to CONTROL PANEL click on PHONE AND MODEM OPTIONS
- click on MODEMS and then ADD
- click "Don't detect my modem; I will select from a list" and then NEXT
- From the manufacturer list select NOKIA then the appropriate phone model
- Select a PORT then click NEXT
- An interphase showing successful installation comes up; click on FINISH
- Restart the system and connect ur phone to ur computer wit the pc suite
- Connect to the internet by clicking on the icon on the pc suite

It should connect using the modem driver installed for ur phone
Well i hope dis my small contribution helps
Cheers wink wink

hi there
Have u used another phone to connct to d pc suite before? if yes u may have 2 remove any phone modem installed leaving that of d phone u want 2 use
or configure d settings manually by clicking on SETTINGS on d pc suite internet connection interphase and follow d instructions
OR u can just reinstal d software wink wink, in doing this its prefarable to download d pc suite app 4 exact phone model frm d official site (its free of charge)
D new pc suite has a cool look wink wink wink would have attached d setup file but too large
Cheers smiley smiley

After u have instald al d neccesary drivers and ur pc suite recognices ur phone. Go to control panel - internet options. Highlite the phone modem then click settings. A new dialog box appears, unclick the two check boxes on top. There two check boxes below too. Click on both of them then type in celtels Ip: 172.18.254.5 and port nó 8080. Also type the user name and pasword. Mms . Then ok.reconect and u are done. Note that u also to have to type ur access point in the pc suite. And make sure u named ur access point on your fone 2. For s40 fones go to settings - connectivity - gprs or packet data. For symbian fones go to tools-settings-connections-access point.
