If you have a phone as modem plan sure you can, If you have the Instinct I am asuming that you are w/ Sprint. If so and you have unlimited data plan go buy a 3G to broadband wireless router. I suggest the Cradlepoint 350 or better, Best Buy sells them for about $100. It will convert your 3G signal and then your PS3 will be able to see the network, set it up with either no passcode or use the WPA/TKIP for encryption. It works fine, I have the HTC Touch Pro and it works perfectly, its easier if you have a Windows based phone though.

Sprint says there is not a (PAM) Phone as modem plan on the instinct. I have already called them several times, since i got the instinct when it first came out i saw you could use it as a modem and that is why i bought it. And they force you to pay 99$ a month upon activation. They will not hook you up with no modem plan. They don't want you to use it as a modem for some reason. Maybe extreme data? Well you can use it as a modem and that is a fact. And have internet on both Computer and your Gaming system. Here are the steps. To make a story very short, here is a video...

NOW after you do all of this, right click on the instinct connection, properties, advanced, enable share connection, hook ethernet cable up to your ps3, and your computer. Dial the number to connect, and there you go!

Need 4digit reset code for samsung instinct

Hello Harris,

The standard code to unlock Samsung Instinct Cell Phone is 0000. If you have changed it you should contact Samsung who will be able to assist you. In some cases you can unlock the phone by inputting the following code: *2767*3855# . Your sim card should not be in when doing this as it wipes the phone.

Why do i keep getting errors when i try to access the internet or update my software

it seems that your gateway or server is not configure properly for your software program. normally, it is the result of your software not connecting to its preferred updating site.

you would want to check your firewall and antivirus, and try configuring your internet or network settings in your computer.

take care..

Samsung Instinct "controlling itself."

Reinstall the firmware over the internet. The firmware seems to have got corrupted and is forcing the phone to misbehave.

Unlock a phone

You cannot use a Samsung Instinct phone on a GSM network like AT&T. The Instinct is a CDMA phone. In the U.S. Sprint and Verizon are CDMA networks, and T-Mobile and AT&T are GSM networks. Phones made for one network type are not usable on another network type.
