Bluetooth and Internet

My son has a Nokia 6600 with O2.

He can swap pictures and docs from the Nokia to his PC (WindowsME) and vice versa, but he cannot connect to the Internet.
(I hope I've got that right :-( )

He has no BT landline telephone connection, and was hoping to use his Nokia.

Any ideas please?

i have tried this sort of thing with loads of mobiles and it depends what your internet provider and who is the provider of ur phone (e.g. vodafone) also its very slow and exspensive!

not the 6600 and old info but!! the idea may be right, if the infra Red is available.

If i am not on your wave length, never mind :)

JIM - I know that he does not have infra-red on his PC.
The Nokia6600 was new at Christmas, so I assume it is the latest model?
Thanks for the site, I will show him when he next visits.

matt1234 - would not O2 be his internet provider?
and Nokia the phone provider?

We think we have found the problem.
I went to click here found all the instruction that he needs.
It appears that he does not have the Bluetooth
connection option in the "connectivity" folder.
Nokia helpline are going to contact him.
Not a bad helpline there!
Thanks for the advice anyway.
