Hi,

I just bought a Nokia 6600. I want to know if there is a way I can use my GPRS enabled Nokia phone to browse websites. I want to use GPRS and not a data call option that is available.

Please help.

Do you want to browse on the phone itself? If yes, then try Access NetFront. They have a promotion until the end of the month (September 2004), giving free copies.

If you want to browse from your PC or laptop, then you'll need Bluetooth on your computer and you can follow this guide. For more, check our Bluetooth Guides.

Again, What you are suggesting is dial up to the phone.
I want a way in which all I need to do is connect my GPRS enabled phone to the bluetooth dongle on the PC and open internet explorer and I should be online

If your phone is setup right all should be easy, Setup up a dial up network connection on your PC tell it the modem is on the end of the blue tooth connection or IR port put in the dial up number *99# no user name or password and there you go.

koolsurdie, the procedure I point in the guide looks like dial up, but if you look closely you'll see it's for GPRS. By using the number *99# you're indicating to the phone to connect to GPRS. Just follow the guide.

freitasm is correct it only looks like a dial up connection but it works very different as you are telling it to use the GPRS modem in the handset.
