    Tethering the mytouch3g to laptop

    Advertisement



    Is it possible to use Android phones, such as the mytouch3g as a modem for your PC, like you can do with BlackBerry?

    Thanks for any answers.

    I do know it is possible with a Rooted Droid, so I would imagine if your MyTouch was Rooted you would be able to also.

    You can also look into PDANet. I forget the differences between the free and paid editions, but the free one was good enough for those times that I needed Internet in a pinch.

    If you are rooted, look into this http://code.google.com/p/android-wifi-tether/ . It was really easy to set up and use.

    Thanks, guys. This is great news. I'm hoping to get a MyTouch 3G very soon, and currently I use my BB at home for internet on my laptop. I'll need to look into how to go about rooting my Android. Saw it somewhere, but I think I lost the link. Thanks again.

    Here's the link to Cyanogen mod, it's what I used to root my mt3g.

    I am using EasyTether which has a phone app and a piece of software that you download on the PC. I tried it last night and it works great. It also does not require the phone to be rooted.

    From what I've read about the Backflip, AT&T has pretty much crippled it.

    2 options for tethering(free)

    pdanet(Free)
    its works with 1 catch.
    m.facebook.com works
    https://www.facebook.com doesnt work
    any site that required https to securely log u in will result in error(this is so you pay for the app)

    option 2: ROOT the phone. Cyanogen mod has a 2.1 version they released earlier this week and if i remember correctly all cyan mods have BOTH wireless tether and usb wired tether.

    not pretty much.
    more like 100% crippled it (thank god for the ATT nexus one)
    they put ATT crapware on it AND they force you to download everything thought the app store. this is so there is no app to remove the crapware that ATT has on the phone
    what att did to the crackflip is why google.com/phone exists. and also why my next phone might be the google nexus 2.
    n95-1 on ATT for cheap data
    ATT quickfire on T-mobile for cheap voice
    BB 7100T on boost for cheap data part 2
    Nook with rooted 1.2 for "educational" purposes
