The CD that came with the phone doesn't have a modem software to use the phone as a modem for my laptop. This was an easy task with my work BJ, the software come with the phone, however I can't use this phone as a modem. I need to be able to use the Pantech Duo as a modem. Thank you.

you need to know service that your provider for sim service. sometimes, you need to change your sim card type to broadband and get the credit or top up for that broadband. In other case, sometimes they provide us with mobile internet. For this, you can browse internet using mobile only, but can browse using pc.
if you came from malaysia then i can help you because im from malaysia and know how to connect using mobile as modem for pc/laptop. Is easy and cheap. No need to buy broadband. As long your mobile phone have 3G.
First check that your Phone should support to work as a Modem. If yes then Just connect the Phone with your Laptop (the cable provide with your Phone Provider). Normally you receive the software also with your Phone. As soon as you connect the Phone it will start installing Drivers, Make sure you should have CD/Media to install the drivers. Once the Driver installed successfully. Then you can start connecting with the Internet.. (It would be needed user name and password , Please contact your Internet/ Connection Provider).
Please clarify which OS you using and which connection you are using. SO that I can give you exact steps.
Please post your feedback and Vote if the problem resolved as per your satisfaction>
all you have to do is, take the wireless modem and check if there ports at the back for connecting the ethernet to the modem(mostly it will be there).you can refer the manual of the wireless modem to connect the modem to your acer(i.e the connections of cables)in a step by step process.i am telling this since you have not specified your modem's manfacturer and model no. you have to the install the software from the installation cd of the modem in your laptop.
the defaualt connection will be to connect the phone's ethernet cord to the main input of the modem(if you are using the phone for internet). and the power adapter in the nearby small slot.
cell phone as a modem is perhaps the most overlooked of all Internet
connection options. But a mobile phone Internet connection, whether as
a tethered modem or, using bluetooth, a wireless cell phone Internet
connection, is easy to set up, and with a laptop and cellphone you can
check email and surf the web from anywhere, any time, with the Internet
in your pocket!
Here are the basic instructions for creating a mobile phone Internet
connection. The instructions are for a cell phone with bluetooth (which
most cell phones these days have), but if your cell phone doesn’t have
bluetooth you can buy a cable to connect your laptop to your phone from
any cell phone accessory provider. Conversely, if your cell phone has
bluetooth but your laptop does not, you can buy a small USB device
which will enable bluetooth on your computer.
your phone serves as a modem already, just disable the built-in modem of your laptop. then if your phone comes with an installation CD like the nokia models, then you can set it up to be a modem for your laptop, but then you should know if your CP service provider are capable with this, like GPRS, HSDPA, and other wireless protocols. and last, you should have alot of loads for your CP, hehehehe
