  1. I use a Nokia 7610 and donot have a GPRS connection. I have never viewed a webpage on my cellphone. I have an ADSL connection on my PC. Can I use this connection to surf the internet through my cellphone? I connect my cellphone to my PC using a DKU-2 cable.

    Why bother connecting a phone to a pc through a cable to surf the net when you could just use the pc...

    Not having that capability myself, I can only tell you what I've heard;
    Yes you can use the phone as a modem for an Internet connection --
    HOWEVER, you better have a good service plan for data rates as it gets
    VERY EXPENSIVE.

    Personally I would get the configuration working and then use it ONLY when
    there were no WiFi hotspots nearby AND it was very important to make the
    connection, eg business use.
