Provided that your SIM card is enabled for GPRS / 3G Internet access with your provider, then you
can use the Nokia E71 as a modem to connect to the Internet from your PC via the USB cable.
The necessary modem drivers for the phone are installed automatically as part of the Nokia PC
Suite installation. If you have not installed PC from the CD in the sales package, DO NOT connect
the phone via the USB cable until you have first installed the software. (Well, you can do, it's not
the end of the world, but Windows may install the device as an 'Unknown Device' and not
recognise it correctly until you manually remove the associated entries from the Windows Registry
allowing Windows to re-detect it as a new device).
Once the software has been installed, you can then connect the Phone to the PC. The Phone will
prompt you whether you want to connect in PC Suite mode or USB Storage mode. Select PC Suite
