Re: How to use phone as modem?

doesn't going by usb give the possiblity of tethering though? which may incur an extra charge. i just go wireless to avoid any chance of that

Re: How to use phone as modem?

As long as the connection says SPRINT and not Phone as Modem, you should be fine. I use a usb connection with WMWifiRouter and the connection says SPRINT which is fine.
Whenever you use your device to connect your laptop to the web, you are tethering. What matters is what the connection says while you are connected.

i always preferred using my wifi router over the usb, but i never really coulndt compare the two side by side, but thats just my personal input.
Well Alex i compared both just after reading your post and wmwifirouter was a bit faster.

So i guess that one is answered.. WMWIFIROUTER RULES!!!!

doesn't WMwifi router have a free 12 day trial? I remember it had a ridiculously long trial that i almost forgot I had to pay for it.

I have the Mighty ROM flashed, and when I connect the USB, there is the option to 'Use Phone As Modem', but it just says 'Check USB cable connection' under 'Status' on the Internet Sharing screen, and my laptop still has no Internet.

What do I need to do to make it work? Sorry if this has been answered in another thread, but I'm just on my phone and I could only find tethering fix stuff, not the process of hooking it up.

Please help!
It should work fine using the phone as a modem popup with Mighty Rom. Mightys rom already has whatever internet sharing hacks cooked in. Just make sure you choose Sprint, and not phone as a modem to connect. As for your problem with connect usb cable, make sure you have a good data cable, and Activesync installed to give you your drivers. Otherwise it should work just fine. Personally I dont know why everybody insists on using Wifi router. I have my phone tethered all day streaming Sirius and works perfectly.
