That's three phones... you are trying to use them all? You also specify three methods... you expegt then, nine replies?

However... a good place to start is google, with the phone name and "linux".

tuxmobile has a compatability list...
http://tuxmobil.org/phones_survey_ericsson.html
... neither ericsson phone is listed.

http://tuxmobil.org/phones_survey_nokia.html
... the nokia phone isn't listed either.

Tough luck.

The best you can do is plug one in and see what happens.
If any of the phones have wifi, and yau have a wap, then try networking them normally.

Google
"linux bluetooth gprs modem"
"linux usb gprs modem"
... and do a lot of hunting for generic howtos. You'll learn a lot!

dont mean to use all three
a solution to sync any one of these and access the net through these would have been great
but alas!!!!!!!

Return a phone to the vendor and complain that it is not compatible with your computer. They may be prepared to replace with another model. Look through the compatibility lists for a range of models to request.

As suggested, you could try a phone and a generic approach.

If you have a wifi phone, check it's documentation to see if it can be used as a router. (Longshot). In which case you are fine.
