I use Ubuntu 10.04 and I have a Nokia 5130 phone. How can I use the mobile Internet on my PC by using this smartphone? I’d like to know any settings or software I should use.

    Connect your cell with pc.
    open nokia pc suite
    click on connect to internet.
    Select your cell as modem from the list.

    but you will need wine to run pc suite on ubuntu.

    or try to connect without pc suite:
