View Full Version : Electronics Making cell phone into wireless card?

06-22-2009, 08:50 PM
I've heard you can do this. I have sprint and the unlimited data/internet plan. Apparently there is something you can hook up to your phone without having to pay for the actual sprint wireless card services. In short, the device makes your phone into a wireless card for your laptop, computer, etc.

I have a Mogul or a HTC 6800. Anybody know how to do this? I'll give you 3000 casino cash if you can direct me to somewhere to buy such a thing or to jimmy it up

I'm about to do this with my Palm Pre.

Can you do this with an iPhone?

Here is a step by step for the USB DUN - I just use the internet sharing that is built into my touchpro after a small registry hack


other options:Just get PHM Regedit (free) and delete the following entry:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > Comm > Internet Sharing > (I believe it was the rilphone.dll or ril2phone.dll)


1. Have Your Computer, HTC Mogul, and USB to MiniUSB Cable handy.
2. Make sure internet connection sharing is not running on your Mogul
3. NO USB Cable is plugged into the Mogul
4. Open Internet Explorer on the Mogul
5. With the web page running, open the start menu and run Internet Connection Sharing
6. Ensure "Network Connection" is set to "Sprint PCS"
7. Select "Connect"
8. Connect your Mogul and laptop using the USB Cable
9. Allow windows to automatically detect and install the appropriate driver software
10. Browse the web and enjoy!

This may be the easiest way:

Turn on wifif - install this:

its the last free version of the program
the newest version can be found at www.wmwifirouter.com its $30 and may be well worth it - better than PDANet

but the link I posted works and turns your Mogul into a WiFi Hotspot

keep in mind, sprint isn't a big fan of tethering.

Yeah if they catch you, they will charge you.
