If you are using a Mac and have bluetooth support on both the phone and the Mac, you can use your phone as a modem via bluetooth. I do not know how to do it in the Windows PC world though.

Hi Vicky,
The 7650 can operate as a GSM modem using either an infrared or a Bluetooth link from a PC. The Nokia web site has instructions for both. Have a look at,1080,2018,00.html
