Question about Cell Phones

2 Answers

Is it possible to use an Android phone, specifically an HTC "Incredible" and use it as a portable wi-fi connection to enable an Apple I-Pad to get a 3-G connection, utilizing the data plan already paid for and avoid paying for a seperate data plan exclusively for the I-Pad?

When the HTC Incredible is connected to a laptop with the USB cable, you can use the phone's data connection as your laptop's internet connection. They call it "tethering".

Check out the HTC Incredible manual for more details.

I hope that helps.

I cant get my tablet to connect to wifi


Android tablets, unlike Android phones, don't require mobile phone service or a contract with a mobile phone company, and several models use Wi-Fi for network connectivity. The Android 3.0 operating system, known as Honeycomb, is designed specifically for tablets, and has the same features for Wi-Fi connections that are available with earlier versions of Android. Android tablets support wireless connections encrypted by both WEP and the more-secure WPA.

Tap the "Apps" menu on the tablet screen. Touch "Settings." Touch "Wireless and Networks" and select "Wi-Fi Settings." Tap the "Wi-Fi" box to turn on Wi-Fi. The Android tablet scans for available Wi-Fi networks and displays them on-screen under "Wi-Fi Networks." Tap an available Wi-Fi network. Touch "Connect" if it is unsecured, or enter the password or passcode for the encrypted connection.
Tap "Connect."

Can get my archos 5 to conect to my android phone


If you mean to connect your Archos to your Android device through Wi-Fi, than, yes, you can! But, only if your android device supports the tethering feature. For example if you have an Android 2.2 (Froyo) device than you go to Settings->>Wireless & networks->>Tethering & portable hotspot and tap "Portable Wi-Fi hotspot". From the Archos, go to the the Wi-Fi settings and connect to the network you've just created. If you do not have the tethering option available, you should find out if your carrier or device manufacturer has an update for the device. Hope it helps!
