Long ago I used a Nokia phone to connect to the interweb from my Laptop using BlueTooth. When I wanted to make a connection, the laptop would connect to the phone, kick off the connection and away it went.

I now want to achieve the same thing, however, I'm using WM6 which requires manual intervention on the phone to share its connection. Does anyone know if this can be done without intervention. If not, does anyone know if Nokia phones can establish a connection without intervention under the new OS (when I last had a Nokia they where still using their own proprietary OS).

Also, does anyone know if Nokia PC suite still includes a Lotus Notes conduit?

Current hardware is ASUS eee 901 via VF1210 (upgraded from WM5 to WM6).

Got a Nokia 6121 and it still has the modem hardware that is supported by WinXP, i.e. setup Bluetooth pairing and Modem came up in the available resouce list, and configured Dialup networking without having to use the supplied disk.

Then installed Nokia PC Suite and the synchonisation conduit supports Lotus Notes 5, 6 & 7, so all my requirements fullfilled with the 6121.

Just be aware that Bluetooth is slow and you may only be getting a 115.2k connection.

thanks, I'll try the USB connection also and see if it "feels" faster, although anecdotally dial-up seems faster than connection sharing (WM6), both via Bluetooth.

hmmm, tried that and I'll stick with Bluetooth. There is no modem "mode" when connecting via USB, wants PCSuite installed, that's not what I want installed on the 901 as the phone is synchronised to work laptop. oh well, 115.2 it is then.
