Unfortunately no. You used to be able to get a usb cable and connect your cell as a modem and get free internet access, but the wireless companies have figured out that they can charge an unreasonable rate for internet access, and you now have to purchase an air time wireless card through your cell provider in order to connect through their cell services. It's a bummer, I know.

No sim card installed


Hello
The SIM tray near the battery allows you to connect to Internet or Dial. Sometime the Laptop/Netbook doesn't allow you to access your laptop/netbook. I suggest reseting your laptop will help you.

I have dell inspiron n5010. It has SIM slot. What kind of SIM card can I use?


You can use a SIM card that is attached to a cell phone network Data Plan. You can then use your 3G/4G access that you have purchased monthly from a cell phone provider to get on the internet anywhere.

No internet connection


Problems that can cause this problem are :
- gprs and wap configuration was not right or not activated. Some provider of SIM card require activation via message to send activation setting to your phone. After this activation, phone usually can connect to internet automatically.
Some of SIM card will configure this setting automatically after put in a phone, but other SIM card need manual configuration. Make sure you've configure internet connection in your phone properly.

- another problem is signal strenght or continuity. If you make a connection in closed building or other place with low signal, you may can't connect to the internet.

Hope this help and be kind to rate please, thank you

Can you help me figure out how to connect the phone to my laptop? I don't have a sim card like at&t and I already pay to have internet on my phone. It seems senseless to pay another $40 per month...


It is an automatic configuration procedure.

Restart your system;
Insert the pc-suite cd which should run automatically;
Follow the on-screen instructions;
If you have used Nokia Pc-Suite you will find it easy to install this;
Just follow the manual and it will be done.

I hope you phone has a sim card?

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya.

How can you use a blackberry nextel phone with your boost plan


You do not need to "unlock" that blackberry.  If you put your boost sim in it the phone calling and direct connect will work immediately.  Getting the txting and internet to work require you to install other service books.  Try this link http://www.howardforums.com/showthread.php?t=1530734  which explains how to remove the old books and add the correct service book to use mms and internet.
