how does one bluetooth to the Internet with Nokia tablet & phone?


I have an appalingly basic question:

I have a N800 and a Nokia 6133 cell phone (all with T-mobile in the USA). How can I combine the two to surf the web?

Do I need to upgrade my phone contact to get WAP access or do I literally dial-up a number to my ISP and then have the N800 use this connection? What kind of speed can I expect when I use my N800+N6133 to access the net?

Is there a howto somewhere on how to do all this?

Heh heh, you are my twin aren't you. My evil twin is out there and found the forums, woohoo! I'm getting ready to purchase an N800, and I almost bought a 6133, but instead opted for the 6260 (apparently a Euro GSM phone that works with T-Mobile) because of it's SymbianOS (check out or for info on how totally cool the Symbian phones can be with those projects). So...

My understanding is that you are either:
a) Trying to surf the web FROM your N800 THROUGH your 6133 (in which case you would either yes need to use simple "dial up" and will get "dial up" speeds; or need to subscribe to their data plan and bluetooth connect your N800 to your 6133)
b) Trying to surf the web FROM your 6133 through the wireless LAN connection on your N800. If this is the case, you will probably need to connect your 6133 (again via bluetooth) to your N800 as a new network connection.

I know it's not specific enough to "go there and select that, and type that" but hopefully points you in the relative direction to get it going.

Good luck!

... OP has a more detailed description of what is going on here.

Looks like OP needs to subscribe to a dataplan - maybe from t-mobile?
