Hi, you need to install your phone, once connected using correct data cable (DKU-2) PC will detect it and ask for drivers, if PC Suite is installed it should automatically install the phone as a modem and then you can start a dialup session using phone as a modem. You will also need to install the drivers for the Cable, you can find the drivers in PC Suite folder or on Nokia website.


Before doing all this you should have GPRS activated and internet settings installed for Vodafone NZ. You can get the settings automatically as a txt message from Vodafone or Nokia website if you don’t have them

 ·         Open control panel and run 'new connection wizard' ·         Click next ·         Select connect to the internet ·         Select set up my connection manually ·         Connect using dial up modem ·         Select the model of your phone ·         Type any name ·         Enter the phone number as *99# ·         Don't provide any user name and password ·         Click next

You should be able to connect using this new connection.
