How to Setup Mobile Phone Internet using Nokia, Samsung Mobile Phone on Laptop and PC
If your mobile have internet connection available then you can use it on laptop or desktop for PC internet access. There are few things we require before we can proceed to actual configuration. Firstly a mobile phone having modem facility, mobile service providers which offers PC internet, data cable or Bluetooth for connectivity, driver for Bluetooth or phone modem and of course a Laptop or Desktop. For this practical work I will be using Nokia 3110 Classic phone which has modem, Nokia PC Suite (contains driver and internet wizard), Reliance GSM SIM Card which is recharged with monthly unlimited PC internet pack, a USB data cable and my Desktop (which I assembled myself). I will also show you how to setup Bluetooth connection later in this tutorial. This is one of the simple task of world if everything goes well.
Various operators have various internet pack plans and you should choose such a plan which is within your budget. If you compare GSM Internet services (upto 128kbps but practically around 8kbps) with CDMA Internet services (upto 154kbps but practically around 12kbps) like Reliance Netconnect or Tata Photon. In my area Reliance GSM Internet services costs Rs. 303/- monthly for unlimited internet and Reliance CDMA Internet services costs around Rs. 1100/- monthly for unlimited internet access. Similarly Airtel provides Internet service at Rs. 449/- per month for unlimited access but its service is not as good as Reliance GSM provides. Again BSNL GSM Internet is there but it does not work in my area but works fine in my buddy’s area and sometime it perform faster than above all.
Well these analyses were based on my own experience with these guys and may differ in cost and service in your area. You are clever enough to make decision which one to opt and which to drop.
In India we have 3G service providers like BSNL & MTNL and in many parts of world already have 3G and 3.5G. If you live in those cities where 3G/3.5G is available then you can enjoy mobile broadband service (broadband service on mobile) and you can also surf internet through Laptop or Desktop.
Steps to setup mobile internet using Data Cable.
First of all you need to install Nokia PC Suite (a free application), make sure you install latest PC Suite because latest and updated PC Suite software contains almost all Nokia phone models’ driver. If you have Sony Ericson or Samsung then install their respective drivers. Don’t connect phone while you install driver unless you are prompted to do so. Restart your computer if prompted to do so.
Now connect you phone and select Nokia Mode or PC Mode (don’t select Data Transfer, Data Storage or Printing Mode. They are for different purpose). Windows will start installing driver for your phone, be patient while it install driver, it takes time to install. If everything goes right then it will show a message like “Nokia 3110c connected via USB”, see below image.

Double click on phone icon in the system tray area or double click on Nokia PC Suite icon on desktop, it will pop up a window.
Click on “Connect to Internet” option then wait for few seconds or alternatively you can click on “Connect” button if you don’t want Nokia PC Suite to connect to internet automatically.
If you connected to the internet then you will see something similar information on Nokia PC Suite. Now you can enjoy internet at your ease and comfort. Happy surfing.
