    I dont think so unless you get some prompts from your computer. Sorry didnt mean to state the obvious but you know how vague some of the questions are on here. Hope it works for you.

    You were very helpful. Actually the phone belongs to a friend and unfortunatly they dont have the manual and they have the launguage set up in spanish but when they go to settings it shows up in english in which case they dont understand and being that ive nvr seen the phone before I couldnt tell them exactly where to go to on the phone and since they live 300 miles away this was the only solution i could come with at this time until I can get a users manual tomarrow.. But yes you were helpul and I Thank You...

Tether phone laptop


Usually when one tethers it is done from the phone to obtain internet for devices such as laptops, tablets or other devices. There are ways to share internet from computers but that is usually done over the network and could not confirm it could be done with a phone. That being said, If you are indeed looking to Tether the laptop to the Phone's internet it would depend on the phone you were trying to use to determine how this would be easiest done.

Depending on the phone some are designed with a Hotspot mode that can be found under the settings of most smartphones and will allow you to access it as a wireless access point. This is contingent on the phone service vender as it will charge you data to use this technology.

If your phone does not support any type of "Hotspot" mode then we would be looking at the possiblity of connecting the phone via USB to allow for internet passthrough. Again this is all depending on the type of phone.

If you can inform me of the type of phone you have and exactly what you hope to achieve I would be more than happy to help further.

Good luck!

My brand new zte merit z990g phone keeps reseting itself over and over again. Even after a hard reset (battery out for a few minutes, back in and power on) it just shows ZTE logo then the TracFone...

sounds like the system image is corrupt.
you are gonna have to locate another image from the internet, plug the phone into PC via USB tether cable, and perform system update using either official software or perhaps a hacker app.
