Tip

Use ANdroid phones as Modems when using laptop or desktop(pc).


The process of converting android phones to modem is called Tethering.



Before looking for and purchasing a suitable app, you will need a few things:

Android phone
Android phone drivers for your laptop or PC's operating system
USB cable

You should also be aware that using your mobile as a modem will impact on your data plan, so make sure that tethering your phone won't result in a huge bill from your network. Note also that some networks block tethering, which is why you might need to root your Android.



The first thing you need to do is find a suitable app. Several are available from the Market each with different requirements. Some must be paid for, whereas the free ones will usually require root access.

Four popular Android tethering apps are:

PDANet - costs $10 and doesn't require root access; also requires a desktop app.
EasyTether -this app is also $10 and doesn't require a rooted phone.
Tethering Widget - a free tethering app that requires your Android to be rooted.
Tethering - a free app that doesn't require rooting.

(I personally prefer tethering bcause its free)

Once downloaded and installed, these apps can then be tethered with a USB cable to use your Android cell as a modem for your computer.



HOW TO

Now that you have chosen and installed a suitable app to use your Android phone as a wireless modem, you can take advantage of the functionality it delivers. Once your phone is connected to your PC or laptop you should find that with the app installed and running, and the correct drivers installed on your PC, the computer will detect your phone as a modem and let you access the Internet with it.

There are differences in the various apps at this stage (for instance PDANet employs a client app on your PC) so you will need to check the instructions for the one you choose. The general rule is that with mobile internet active on your phone, your Android connected by USB to your computer and the application running, your PC will now be able to use the phone as a new network connection!

How to connect to the internet? via my lap top.


This is called 'tethering' and is not supported from the Apple IOS. You need to jailbreak the phone and install phonemodem or similar software from 'Cydia' (you could call this the jailbroken version of the app store). Jailbreaking can be quite a hassle and I would not recommend it to a newbie.

You also need to have PAM (phone-as-modem) Data Service through your provider Sprint no longer carries this unless you beg for it also you will need your carriers connection software on your computer.
