Hi, check out this tutorial first to make sure you do it the correct way: http://europe.nokia.com/support/download-software/pc-suites/how-to/connect-to-the-web

If your device is brand new, I would check that you have the right internet acces point settings installed in your device. If you are missing internett and mms settings, you should usually be able to get them from your service providers internet site. If you cannot find it there, give them a call.

 

You will have to connect using your service providers net on your phone, beware of that if you don't have a surf plan, I would check out the costs.

Edit: Try first to access internet using your on board nokia browser (not connected to pc). 

 

If that doesn't work, I would contact straight talk make sure you have the right data plan, correct internett accespoint settings.

 

Do this first.

 

I believe you should be able to use your phone as a modem if you have the option to acces internet on your device.

Reading some posts regarding to this issue tells me that it might be that straight talk does not allow this to happen. At least with some other mobile makes.

The E71 it self has this option, but it could be that straight talk has limited this on this phone too.

Call straight talk first and ask if this can be done!

If it should be possible, we can try to look at other solutions.

Re: Connecting laptop to nokia E71

No problem!

I've looked at the terms and conditions for straight talk, and under section 7, if I did understand it correctly, it says that their unlimited plans cannot be used for any applications that tether your device to a laptop or personal computer. And that you cannot access internet in any other way than by using the device's native applications etc.

So give them a call, but it looks like it won't do. :smileysad:
