Android : Using Phone As A Modem / Mobile Hot-spot

Oct 12, 2010

I've got an HTC Desire which has a Mobile Hotspot App on it - so I can connect my laptop to the WiFi signal generated by my phone.I have "Unlimited Internet" with a fair-usage cap of 1GB. (such a farce, that use of the word unlimited, why don't they just say 1GB?)However, the terms and conditions explicitly disallow using the phone as a modem.My question is, can they tell, and if so, how? Surely the HTTP/HTTPS requests being sent out by the phone are exactly the same, regardless of whether it's coming from the phone or the laptop?If they aren't (perhaps some ID which says this is a phone as apposed to a different ID which will be sent by the laptop's browser), is there a way to make it look as if the requests being sent are coming from the phone?

I see a Sprint Hotspot app on the Epic. What happens if you press it? Does it auto-activate the hotspot, or does it check to see if you have the add-on plan before it can be used?

HTC EVO 4G :: Hot Spot On Family Plan - Bill On Phone?

May 27, 2010

I pre ordered my Evo couple weeks ago, and the other night I was talking to my mom about it when I brought up Tethering feature and her eyes lit up. She currently uses a Tracfone (yea I know hahahaha) and is asking about getting added on to my plan, which i don't mind. My parents go camping alot and my mom is kind of addicted to Facebook (Farmville in general), so shes trying to look into mobile internet. I know there's a $29.99 fee for activating the hotspot everymonth, but I'm curious if that she activated it on her Evo, and I also did later in the month, does it bill per phone, or plan? Anyone have an idea what I'm talking about?

HTC Incredible :: Phone Can't Find TP2 Wifi Hot Spot / Get It?

May 5, 2010

Just wondering why my Incredible can't find my TP2's wifi hot spot. I'm at work, and it found three secured networks near me (to which I don't have the PW of course), but it never picked up on my TP2 although they were less than a foot apart from each other. So I added the TP2 network via the add function, and it said my TP2 network was out of range. My work laptop was able to connect to the TP2 (even through VPN) with no problem.

HTC Magic :: Way To Use Phone As A Modem For Macbook?

May 30, 2009

I am on the verge of upgrading my phone, at the moment I've ditched the idea of a BB Storm because of the terrible feedback and reviews on bad signal and battery life. So I am left with the Magic or the new HTC Touch Pro " out in the next couple of weeks. I'm on Vodafone UK, i will be staying with them as they offer the best of what I need in my area. I use my phone for my business, it needs to sync with my microsoft office to take my contacts and diary with me, it needs to be able to be tethered (either usb or bluetooth) to my macbook so I can use it as a modem as I edit photographs on location and ftp or email them to clients. I do not send enough through my laptop to justify a 3G usb dongle on a separate tariff and Vodafone don't do a pay as you go dongle that will work with a mac (only the contract one works I've had a play with a Magic and it seems nice, I currently have a HTC Tytn 2(tilt) so i would have to get used to using a virtual keyboard with the Magic. The Touch Pro 2 looks sweet BUT it's big. So if the Magic could achieve what I need then it may be the phone for me. question is, can I use the magic as a modem for my macbook?

I am seriously thinking of buying the X10, but I need to know for sure whether it will work as a modem for my laptop. It does everything else I need, but it has to do this for me to go ahead and purchase it. Will it work as a modem with Android 1.6 and 2.1? It would be great if it could also work as a wireless hot spot, but it has to be able to do a USB tether.

Samsung Captivate : Phone SIM Card To USB ATT Modem?

I need to be able to get Internet in a remote area. I barely get a signal now on the captivate, if I stand on my head and rub my tummy at the same time.

Since I don't think there's a way to add an external higher gain antenna to the Captivate, I'm wondering if anyone has had any luck taking the SIM card out of the captivate and using it in a 3G USB device with any sort of an external antenna?

Motorola Droid X : Phone As A Dial-up Modem?

Nov 23, 2010

Is it possible to use a DroidX as a dial-up modem? I'm not talking about a cable modem or some way to get on the Internet, but rather dialing into a remote server via an analog phone connection. Examples being old-school BBSes or RAS/DUN servers.

Most if not all the Motorola Phones I've had over the years have this capability, and given the Droidx is seen by my Linux laptop as both a USB storage device and Network device is there any way to set it up as a USB modem that could accept AT commands from a terminal program and dial out to a remote modem?
