Hmmm, I see the idea of surfing the net in the bathroom is a very popular one

It is about doing two usually very relaxing and natural things at the same time. Browsing and... well, you know

You can purchase any other Symbian device then the 6600 for use as a restroom irc client/web browser.

Appalling oversight

I can't believe that internet via bluetooth is not a standard feature.

It's not just for browsing the net or using irc, I want to develop applications for the phone. It's pretty galling to be paying 1.50 per megabyte to transfer data via satellite over the internet from the PC 10cm from the phone just because I can't use the built in bluetooth for TCP/IP.

I've read in another thread that a Bluetooth Access Point rather than a USB Stick would work but that thread seems to confuse which phones this will work for.,

Can anyone confirm that a Bluetooth Access Point will work with the 6600, and mention which access point this is.

I don't wnt to pay the extra for the USB Print server. Hopefully it will be the el-cheapo D-Link one

I don't suppose Nokia "fixed" the problem in the new firmware?

There is an option in Agile Messenger for connection via BT instead of GPRS. Have not tried it myself though.

Router issue

Guys, i got my hands on a 3650 & tried it with the 6600 router.

here is what happenes.

using doris 1.19 (+bluetooth fix) demo version.

looking up www.nokia.com (waiting here)

Loading...

& there. Nothing further.

i am trying to isolate the problem, is it the device or the router.

If anyone has any suggestion on how to do so, please let me know.

What do we gather from this so far?
is the 6600-router acting one-way only.
BUT, since it did report resolving the DNS for www.nokia.com, that means it is working bothways!!

I will try to find the original router for 3650 & try it with the 6600, I am allowed to do so since i OWN both units,....& i will report back,

if you test it with putty http://s2putty.sourceforge.net/ you might get a bit more information

you should also maybe use addresses *within* your network as it could be the routing rather than anything else.

If you need an ssh server for windows then look no further : http://sshwindows.sourceforge.net/

as the Windows Telnet Server doesn't always play nice with putty, and besides, it's telnet!

i have not had the chance to test the agile messenger with the 6600, my set had to go back to the maker

if anyone tests it please report here. Agile's has a "passthrough" connection method that could be the key.

Difference between 10 and 100 m is afterall 10X as far..

Question

Is this possible :

Get two Nokia 6600 phones with the same provider who gives you unlimited free calls between these two phone. Use one of the phones to connect to internet through your desktop at home through bluetooth. so now one of your phones has internet on it. Now, use the other phone when you are outside, connect it to your other phone at home since you have unlimited free calls, make a data call and then use the phone outside to connect to the internet. Now u can use the phone that you have outside to connect to your laptop with internet. This way, you will have free access to the internet even when you are on the go. I think it might not be possible right now but certainly is a solution where you have a lan connection at home and use it to connect to your laptop while outside. Heard once that soneone got it working. dont remember when. any comments ??
