I do not have data on my phone, and I was wondering if anyone out there knew how I would go about sharing my laptop's internet connection with my Symbian s60v5fp3 phone. How can I do such a thing?

Does your phone have Wifi? – Oli Oct 16 '10 at 9:01

Try GnuBox on phone (works via bluetooth). But if your phone supports Wifi, buy cheap router (like DIR-300), it will be much faster.
