Nokia C5-00 internet connection

Hi all,

 

I dont have a data plan (edge/gprs/3G). I would like to connect my Nokia C5 to internet to download applications from the Nokia Ovi Store. Is it possible to connect it to internet over USB or Bluetooth using my home internet access (DSL)?

 

If so, how do I configure my phone and computer to share internet?

 

Thanks.

Unfortunately not. Your only real alternative is to see if you can find an installer for your chosen apps from another site - http://dailymobile.se/ has quite a few.  Download to your PC, then double click to install via Ovi Sync with your phone connected.

There are no options to do what you want with  the C5-00 and your device has no WLAN. You can however download apps (sis, jar) to your PC and install on the C5-00.

Re: Nokia C5-00 internet connection

up to now not really...  seems like Hiisi (phone and computer software) could enable internet over bluetooth to your computer's connection...  gnubox is another way, but none works for me at the moment

Re: Nokia C5-00 internet connection

Actually Hiisi Proxy Suite or GnuBox could do the trick...

It didn't work with me, so..., try your best!

 

Oh, and another thing:

Download from Ovi store on your PC:

-Go to http://store.ovi.com/home and choose your phone...

-Choose an app you'd like to download

-Log in or Register

-(im using just some app for this, not important)

-In your browser, where the link to your app is located (like: http://store.ovi.com/content/131444?clickSource=homepage&contentArea=home ), delete everything in the link until you get to the numbers (like this: http://store.ovi.com/content/131444 ), then add /download and press enter!

Re: Nokia C5-00 internet connection

Have you activated WhatsApp on the phone or mail/chat application? If yes then that may be the cause.
