It is no longer news that you can use your phone to connect to the internet either through Bluetooth or your phone's data cable. 

For years now, I have always used my phone to connect to the internet and I love using it because for me it is very convenient. All I get to do is power on the Bluetooth on both devices and with a couple clicks I'm connected.

I believe that many Nokia users who also use their mobile phones to connect to the internet make use of PC Suite and  I'm sure that some might believe that you cannot be successful doing that if you don't have the PC Suite software. It's easy to do if you follow the simple steps below.
This tutorial is for Windows 7 users.
