Money Savers – Turn Your Cell Phone Into a Modem.

Have you ever been away from home and wanted internet connectivity on your laptop without having to pay a daily fee or hunt for free public Wi-Fi just for a couple hours (or even minutes) of internet access? Luckily, after reading this article, you will probably never have to worry about it again. "Tethering" is best described as the process of connecting your phone to your computer via Bluetooth or USB in order to make use of your wireless data connection. You will never have to pay another $9.95 (or more) per day at a hotel and you don’t have to buy wireless cards or any other equipment you don’t already carry around with you! While the process is no walk in the park, it definitely isn’t rocket science. Spending a little time to step through the procedure will lead the way for big savings in the long run.

Head over to Smart Device Central and read their Modem Tethering Guide that reiterates the benefits of tethering, provides the guides to setting up each different cell carrier and lists tether-compatible phones.
