So all you Windows Mobile fans that just went to Windows Phone, are you missing that tethering you used to do? Well we have good news here at PPCG – if you own a samsung Device…It appears that if you type in some codes on the dialer you can use your phone as a modem.
To use your device please follow these simple steps listed below:
1. On your Samsung Device dial: ##634# then press call. You’ll go into the Diagnosis Menu. Don’t worry you won’t need to remember this number simply because now it is on your program list with a picture of a phone – this is basically the diagnostics menu for the dialer.
2) Now dial (on the diagnostic creen) *#7284# and a dialogue will pop up letting you change the settings from Zune to modem or “Modem, USB dialognostics”. You want to go with “Modem, Tethered Call”. It will restart you phone after a few seconds. Once it restarts, connect to your PC over USB and drivers will be installed on your computer. Now go to your connections on your PC and you’ll see that a Samsung modem was added.
3) Now on your computer you need to change the setting for the Samsung modem. If you set it to prompt for user name you’ll be able to put in the login info. This is all it is:
