Connect to internet via mobile phone

A friend has asked me how he can connect his Nokia Mobile phone to the Internet using an external 56k modem. I have no idea how to do this. Can anyone help?

probably doesn't need to be connected to a modem - if it's a recent model it will have one built-in. If the friend wants to connect to the internet he must know that the phone can display web sites, and if it can do that it can connect on its own - no external devices will be necessary.

Warn him that surfing the net in this fashion will have a pretty hefty imapct on his next bill.

Thanks for your prompt reply. As I said I know zilch about mobiles but I will pass on the info to my friend
