The Nokia C3 is an S40 device and comes with modem fiunctionality built in. It is also one of the hottest selling non-smartphones out there today. The hardware QWERTY keyboard and social networks integration at a budget price makes it a compelling device.
This morning, I received an enquiry about whether or not the C3 could work as a modem with PC. The anser is a Yes, and here is a brief guide. Note that this tutorial is applicable to any other Nokia S40 device with modem functionality.
You will need a number of things:
- Your phone
- Nokia Ovi Suite for PC
- USB data cable
Setup your phone
- On your C3, hit the Menu key
- Go to Settings
- Select Packet Data, then Packet Data Settings
- Select Active
If you already have your operator’s internet settings, select those. if not select any of the settings there as active, then go to Edit Active and manually modify the values to your operator’s settings.
Check our Quick Facts page for your operator’s settings.
Setting Up Ovi Suite
Download Ovi Suite and run the installation file on your PC
Launch Ovi Suite and then connect your C3 to your PC with the USB cable. Once your C3 is properly connected, you’ll see a C3 icon at the bottom of the app
In the left section of the Ovi Suite app, you’ll see “You can use your device to connect your computer to the internet.” Click the green “Connect now” link right below it.
The page that follows lets you enter the connection settings for your operator. Enter Access Point, username and Password. Ignore the last field. Check our Quick Facts page for your operator’s settings.
PS: Just be sure that you have a bundle plan active or your airtime will be depleted should you do any heavy browsing.
