"sorry bluetooth is for file sharing only"

Rubbish! Bluetooth is used for hands-free mobile phone operation (that's not file sharing), among other things.

I've connected my laptop to the internet many times by using bluetooth through my Nokia. As long as your mobile phone service provider gives you internet access, there shouldn't be a problem. Your Nokia will effectively be your modem, and bluetooth will be your method of connecting to the "modem".

By the way, it would've been quicker to try it out, than it was to wait for a reply on a forum.

The question was "How to use internet on my PHONE via bluetooth" meaning he want's to connect to a bluetooth pc to use its internet access, and not "How to use bluetooth to connect my pc up to it to use internet"
So Sci_guy is there a way of doing that? Since the laptop has no way of knowing the mobile phone?
So the answer is no.
Using internet on a laptop via bluetooth mobile(router)- Yes
Using internet on a mobile via bluetooth laptop(router)- No as the laptop doesn't have a way of knowing the fone.
If I have read your question wrong sorry.

My apologies MrGoodguy. I guess I didn't read the post properly.

Although, it makes no sense to connect via bluetooth, if the phones browser is being used. Most mobile phone networks these days offer internet access through the phone. I guess that's why I assumed he wanted to use the phone as a modem (and connect a computer via bluetooth).

Actually, the computer does have a way of knowing the phone, because it has to authenticate the connection. I would imagine (bluetooth being another form of network connection) that the computer could be setup to share the internet with the phone in much the same way it can share with other computers. The only problem I can see is how to get an IP address on the phone. There may be a way, but I don't know of one. Maybe the bluetooth handshake/authentication is enough?

I don't know why you'd want to do it that way though. If I was anywhere near a computer, I'd use that for the internet, rather than strain my eyes with a 3" mobile phone screen.

So, while it seems impractical to do so (to me, anyway), theoretically it should be possible.

Thanks for the apology.
I double checked with Vodafone and Telecom, and they both said the same thing.The software to authenticate the phone does not allow for a broadband setup in this type of scenario. But if you find a way around it? Let me know. I love learning new things. :-)
