computer & internet

Postby kobitadi » Wed Aug 08, 2012 7:48 am

How do I used my computer internet through my cell phone? I want my phone to connect to my home computer's internet connection using a USB dongle, can it be done, if so how? I am already able to send/receive files to the phone/computer using the bluetooth.

You need to check to see if your provider allows tethering cause it can get expensive if you don't have the right plan for it. Other than that just search the App store for a tethering app, some are free and some you have to pay for.

Also depends on the phone you're using. Most phones have a "modem" setting, while smartphones might have a "mobile wifi"

If you can give us information about the phone and your carrier...
