    I'm travelling to France for a month and I'll need connectivity for my
    laptop while on the road. The laptop has builtin bluetooth. I need
    to buy two phones, one for me and one for my wife. We will probably
    be buying prepaid SIM cards if we can get a good deal on the data
    quota. We don't care about any options except for:

    1. phone power and sensitivity
    2. bluetooth compatibility
    3. GPRS throughput

    Any recommendations?

    Re: Which phone is most robust for Bluetooth+GPRS?

    I've been using the 6310 and 6310i for the past two years. The issues are
    not the phone or coverage but the setup.

    Getting to someone who understands what you're talking about, especially if
    you're not fluent, can be a challenge. Access point, IP address, username,
    password, homepage, etc. etc. can be daunting. I'll be glad to email you my
    Excel sheet of settings, just email me after removing the obvious munge.

    I used both Orange FR and SFR. SFR is more user-friendly IMHO.

    Good luck, Andy

    6310i the only choice.

    I vouch for the Nokia 6310i (software version >= 5.0). I use it all
    the time and it is very stable for GPRS and BT. However, I don't know
    about France, is GPRS available for pay as you go?

    make that software version 5.5 or later for proper bluetooth operation
    with non socket devices.
