    You will need to enable USB Tethering for your device to be used as a modem. (Account provisioning may be required, please contact your service provider for this feature).

    To enable this feature:
    1. Touch Apps
    2. Touch Settings
    3. Touch More
    4. Touch Tethering & Mobile Hotspot
    5. Check the box for USB Tethering (this option is not selectable while Wi-Fi is on, or unless connected to a USB cable).
    You can tether your phone to your computer with a USB cable to share your phone's internet connection with your computer.
    • Tethering works with Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Linux.
    • For more information, including using USB tethering with other Operating Systems, see
