Nokia C2-01 - Connectivity

Your phone has several features that allow you to connect to other devices to transmit and receive data.

Bluetooth wireless technology

Bluetooth wireless technology

Bluetooth technology allows you to connect your device, using radio waves, to a compatible Bluetooth device within 10 metres (32 feet).

This device is compliant with Bluetooth Specification 2.1 + EDR supporting the following profiles: generic access, hands-free, headset, object push, file transfer, dial-up networking, serial port, SIM access, generic object exchange, advanced audio distribution, audio video remote control, and generic audio video distribution. To ensure interoperability between other devices supporting Bluetooth technology, use Nokia approved accessories for this model. Check with the manufacturers of other devices to determine their compatibility with this device.

Features using Bluetooth technology increase the demand on battery power and reduce the battery life.

When the wireless device is in the remote SIM mode, you can only use a compatible connected accessory, such as a car kit, to make or receive calls.

Your wireless device will not make any calls, except to the emergency numbers programmed into your device, while in this mode.

To make calls, you must first leave the remote SIM mode. If the device has been locked, enter the lock code to unlock it first.

Open a Bluetooth connection

  1. Select Menu > Settings > Connectivity > Bluetooth.

  2. Select My phone's name, and enter a name for your device.

  3. To activate Bluetooth connectivity, select Bluetooth > On. qgn-stat-bluetooth.jpg indicates that Bluetooth connectivity is active.

  4. To connect your device to an audio accessory, select Conn. to audio acc. and the accessory.

  5. To pair your device with any Bluetooth device in range, select Paired devices > Add new device.

  6. Scroll to a found device, and select Add.

  7. Enter a passcode (up to 16 characters) on your device, and allow the connection on the other Bluetooth device.

Operating the device in hidden mode is a safer way to avoid malicious software. Do not accept Bluetooth connectivity from sources you do not trust. Alternatively, switch off the Bluetooth function. This does not affect other functions of the device.

Connect your PC to the internet

You can use Bluetooth technology to connect your compatible PC to the internet. Your device must be able to connect to the internet (network service), and your PC must support Bluetooth technology. After connecting to the network access point (NAP) service of the device and pairing with your PC, your device automatically opens a packet data connection to the internet.

Packet data

Packet data

General packet radio service (GPRS) is a network service that allows mobile phones to send and receive data over an internet protocol (IP) based network.

To define how to use the service, select Menu > Settings > Connectivity > Packet data > Packet data conn. and from the following:

When needed - Establish a packet data connection when needed by an application. The connection is closed when the application is closed.

Always online - Automatically connect to a packet data network when you switch the device on.

You can use your device as a modem by connecting it to a compatible PC using Bluetooth technology. For details, see the Nokia Ovi Suite documentation.
