    Hi,

    I have an old Nokia 5110 (works fine!) and from what I understand, it should
    be possible to use it to dial in to my work from my laptop. Obviously I need
    a certain cable for that and some kind of Nokia Cellular Data Suite. The
    Nokia would then become a 'software modem'.
    Is this possible, and if so, has anybody done this before? What kind of
    cable do I need and what software?

    Thanks,

    Martijn

    No you can't do this, the 5110 doesn't have a modem. You'll need a later
    model phone such as the 6310i.

    Wrong!

    Yes, you can do it, but you need Data Suite (which ships with the correct
    cable) or a standard M/F bus cable should work as a substitute. I used to
    use an Orange ED50 SIM in a 5146 some years back for dial-up internet
    access.

    Don't feel too bad about it, you're usually right more times than you're
    wrong. ;-)

    Mind you, don't forget to write your lines (I must look before I leap) after
    you leave the corner - and I'd like my hat back sometime please.
