Hay,

Method 1

Right, first install the nokia software you got with phone (nokia suite) (www.nokia.com/pcsuite).

From Nokia PC Suite it lets you dialup to the internet when your phone is connected (it will detect it).
It probably will detect the settings you are using on your phone, else it will ask you for the GPRS setttings which you already have on your phone.

Else try this if you are on Vodacom SA:

There are instructions for that on the Vodacom4me site, it’s just hidden away a little – under “pda setup” in the “my devices” menu.

select the phone make and model as the nokia 6310i, and then under “pda manufacturer”, select “laptop”. you can then choose the os version (windows only, i think), and the connectivity method you want instructions for…
