Can a laptop use a cell phone type card to connect to the Net?

Question: Can a laptop use a cell phone type card to connect to the Net?

Fellow Geeks,
I've heard somewhere that other then 802.11g etc technology (which requires a nearby "hotspot"), a laptop can use a special NIC that uses Cell / Satelite technology to connect to the web - anywhere (well, anywhere a cell phone can receive reception).
Does Verizon or Sprint sell these and offer these accounts?
Thanks,
DCO

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

On the cell phones I closed and opened usb connection mode in mass storage or the phone himself but no result. I have an LG optimus and an LG g2. No one work with the laptop but was working few weeks ago. I think something was change in the my laptop configuration. Thank you

Answer:Why my laptop (toshiba windows 8.1) dosen't recognize (connect) any cell phone (android)?

Oh lord, the LG phones (though in and of themselves excellent) have a tough time connecting to PC. Go to settings. Find about phone. Go to software info. Keep poking Build Number until a box says you're a developer. Go back and now there should be a settings box for developer options. Choose ON, and turn on usb debugging and always screen on. Go to the homescreen and then see if it is recognized.

My friend lives in a remote rural location that only provides 'dial-up' internet service to his home. He has internet access on his AT&T cell phone which is faster than his home dial-up ISP connection. For increased speed, can he connect his home desktop computer to his cell phone in order to use it as an ISP modem/router/access point? If so what hardware will we need?As always, thanks for any help!Mike

Answer:hardware needed to connect ISP via cell phone?

Hardware and software.Fretting Internet over the AT&T cell system is a bit pricey, but it sure beats dial-up. You can also check c with Verizon.I assume you are in North America.  Other parts of the world have different arrangements. An iPhone from AT&T does it with not extra hardware, but you have no contact them and find d out how w to do it. You have to download an Application for then iPhone.My brother lives in a rural l area and has some hardware from Verizon the connects to his PC. Sorry, I don't know the details.Here is a easy video about the iPhone. (ignore the commercial.)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eRa0UbIzGqcNotice the details. This is only for USAHope this helps.

OS: Windows 98 Second EditionProblem: Computer wont recognise my mobile phone through infrared using a usb adapter. I seem to have all the correct drivers installed for the adapter, according to the cd.When I activate infrared on my phone, it shows that it is connected to a computer(on screen, using an image, top-left). Also, on the actual computer, it comes up as "one infrared device in range - SAGEM" on the Infrared Monitor. So it is obviously connected.When I try to transer files using Infrared Recipient, the following message appears:"Communications could not be initialized. Make sure infrared is enabled on your machine thourgh the infrared control panel applet." (- which is referring to the Infrared Monitor)The problem is that the infrared monitor is not installing the (modem?) drivers for the PnP device (which is my mobile phone) when it is connected. When trying to install it manually through the control panel, it seems to recognize my phone. However the infrared on the phone seems to disconnect (image top-right) for a slight moment. Thus, saying that it could't find any modems during the search.

Answer:Cell Phone(modem?) won't connect through infrared

Doesn't surprise me when you're using Windows 98. Did you install drivers for your cellphone? You might need a special tool to allow you to browse through the cellphone's directory.. Look on the cellphone manufacturer's website. I doubt Windows 98 is supported by them, though.

Hi,

Been doing lots of trial and error and done some googling about connecting cell phone and use the laptop speaker and mic as handfree / handset so that it can make calls and answering call without touching the phone itself.
This feature was working on 8.1 and on some cases it works with windows 7 as well.
However on Windows 10 this feature doesn't show up.
According to my understanding (I could be wrong) this isn't windows native feature it is up to the vendor to provide it, as my device is Broadcom based (DW1830) and after a bit of fiddling around I realize that it does support the Handsfree / Handset audio gateway profile, sadly the phone call / answering function just doesn't show up.
So, my request is to please make it into the windows 10! 
My Device:
XPS 15 9550 (bought it about 2 weeks ago)
p.s. I'm refering to Android phone only as I'm only using android as my mobile solution.
**I tried clean install the latest bluetooth driver / stack which downloaded off of Dell website, I am currently using Broadcom latest driver which is better than the one from Dell at least it provides a "new" function which can stream the audio from cell phone to the computer so I can listen my music using the laptop speaker**
Thanks in advance!

Answer:Connect Kyocera s2100 cell phone to Windows 7 PC

If there is no mass storage mode on your phone, a new data cable of any kind won't make any difference.Check you phone settings again for "mass storage mode". Without that mode you cannot do what you are trying to do.The generic mass storage driver is built in to Windows but unless you can switch the phone to "mass storage mode" Windows won't be able to install that driver.If all you need to do is transfer data from/to the phone's memory card, buy a card reader & plug it in to your computer's USB port.Then remove the memory card from the phone and insert it in to the card reader. Than gets around your current problem as far as the memory card is concerned.message edited by phil22

Answer:Removable Drive/Memory Card/USB/Cell Phone???

Take a look at your phone while you plug it in. There could be some kind of note that it's plugged into a PC, and you'd need to make it communicate with the PC. Last resort would be simple to remove the memory card and insert it directly to a memory card reader...

Go to where you bought the cell phone.
Depending on the model type, there may be software packages available for that phone that will accomplish this. However, there is usually a monthly fee also associated with it. Just a heads up.

I can get Internet on my cell phone anywhere but not my laptop. Why? and how can I fix this where my laptop can get Internet anywhere like my cell phone. You go to a hotel and they charge you for wi-fi so you can hook up to the Internet with your laptop.

Answer:How can I get my laptop on the Internet like my cell phone

With mobile phones, you more than likely use a data plan. If you do have a mobile phone that supports using a hotspot, as well your service provider allows it, you could set up the hotspot and connect your laptop to that. I believe it uses your own data though. Many providers as far as I know sell dedicated hotspots that you can purchase plans for.

Thanks in advance! Oh, another problem is that this laptop only has one bay which can hold EITHER the floppy drive OR the DVD/CDROM drive at a time....SO...how in the heck could you wipe it and do a clean OS install, when removing one of the drives while booted locks the thing up?
 

Answer:Solved: Connecting Laptop To A Cell Phone?

Ok, what you will need to do is make sure that your armada has an IR port, and that your mobile has one as well. You will need to go to the website of your Mobile phone manufacturer and see if they have the software to support connectivity this way.
And you can do a clean install using the CD media that your Operating system comes on. It's not necessary to boot from a floppy first, as the Cds should be bootable.

I am visiting Holy Land in June. Unfortunately, my Tracfone will not work outside the USA, so no use bothering getting a SIM card for that.

I would like to know what are my alternatives, i.e., renting an Israeli cell phone online (there are many companies online), just don't know which is safe and reliable and honest.

However, I have an OLD Verizon/Motorola cell phone that is dead and hadn't used for years. Wondering if that would work, but that means, I have to re-activate my Verizon account which I dread doing, plus I lost the charger that goes with the phone.

I will only need phone for 14 days approx.

I could also post an ad on craigslist here wanting to rent their cell phone for 2 weeks, that will be compatible and will take an Israeli SIM card that I can purchase at the airport there.

My problem is weird, but hope someone can offer an opinion.

THANK YOU.

PS - Can you rent an iphone? Just thought I'd ask. Thanks again.
 

Answer:Renting an Israeli Cell Phone (or buying an Israeli SIM card)?

Hi,
Have you thought about just buying a pay-as-you-go cell phone on arrival and using that for two weeks? I don't know the big store names in Israel but I'm sure you can find that info?

When my family and I visit the USA for two or three weeks every two or three years we go to Walmart on day 1 and buy two of their cheapest pay-as-you-go cell phones. Normally about $20 or so inc $10 free credit.
If they don't work next time we're in USA we don't waste time trying to reactivate etc, just another quick trip to Walmart.

I do all my work calls through my cell phone. Is it possible to highlight a phone number and then right click it and have it dialed through my cell phone? My cell phone and laptop are recognized via bluetooth, seems like this would've been a feature well before now.
It would be nice if it would be functional from Outlook emails or even webpages for businesses or candidates.

Hi,
My Internet suddenly stopped working on my laptop. I can connect fine on my phone, so it doesn't seem to be a problem with the router. Nonetheless I've tried restarting the router but it didn't help (I've restarted my laptop too).
The windows troubleshooter said I'm connected fine and there's no problems, but I still can't access any Web pages. The icon on the task bar seems to be a monitor with a square in the top left corner rather than the usual connection bars.
I'm not on flight mode and there doesn't seem to be any physical switches on my laptop. I'm using Windows 10 and my Internet hasn't been working for around 24 hours now.
Hopefully someone is able to help me

Press the "Windows Button" and "R" simultaneously.

A new window will open.

Then typ in ipconfig /all > ipconfig.txt
Go to your Desktop and open the file "ipconfig.txt".
Copy and paste the content of that file here.

 
1. You may wish to omit the "Host Name" part, because of your privacy!! (in case your hostname includes real names of you or someone else)
2. If you do already have a file called "ipconfig.txt" on the Desktop, then you may wish to move that file somewhere else, otherwise it is being replaced.

Answer:Using 3G mobile phone to connect laptop to internet?

I can't tell you info as to details for your specic computer and phone.. but can tell you in general (as i do it with a dell laptop and a Motorola phone)


First and most important, is you probably need a software application that targets this functionality. i don't believe you're going to get it work "right out of the box"
The phones can be "tethered" to your laptop or not (and sometimes that's the wireless carriers choice and not a matter if the hardware can do it)
Tethered means it requires a cable to connect phone and laptop
Un-tethered is the obvious then. No cable. In my case, i use bluetooth on my phone and computer. Nice advantage is not having to plug/unplug a darn cable as u walk in /. out of the room. I;ll walk out and lose my Bluetooth connection, and then walk back in..here the beeping 10 secs until they reconnect

Answer:XP laptop and internet connect thru Sprint phone

How does my Sprint PCS Phone differ from a standard external modem?

Aside from the obvious difference that it's wireless, the biggest difference between your Sprint PCS Phone and an ordinary modem is that there's no modem in your Sprint PCS Phone, PC, or laptop - the modem actually resides within the Sprint PCS Nationwide Network. However, to your computer, your phone looks the same as an ordinary 14400 bps external serial modem. To you, the important difference is that your connection is wireless.

From: http://www1.sprintpcs.com/explore/P...ER<>ATR_cartState=group&bmUID=1041256448738#3

I say why are you trying to use USB? Connect it to the serial port.

Hi, recently purchased new laptop with windows 10 installed. I currently use public/open wifi connection to connect to the internet for non private surfing (private matters dealt with via payg dongle). However, this open wifi connection can be erratic (whereas previous laptop running windows 7 connected as and when requested). Once connected, it is faultless and speedy enough for my needs. I have also marked this connection as ?automatic?.
I know that it is not the signal strength, it is simply the initial connection, with which my new laptop seems to struggle with! My screen shows all available networks so is picking up all correct signals. When I click ?connect? it will go through the motions for approx 2-3 seconds and then say ?unable to connect to this network? and other times, it will say ?connecting? and will go through these motions, and will continue to say ?connecting? for 15 minutes and longer or until I get sick of waiting!
On the occasions when it does finally ?connect?, it will begin with a message in the ?action centre? saying ?click on message to connect to open wifi?-it will then go to the open/public wifi homepage and connect-from thereon, I am fine.
Why won?t my laptop connect as easily to open wifi as last machine did on windows 7, and why does it continually say ?unable to connect to internet? or remain in ?connecting? mode?

Hi there
On an HTC phone there is an option to use this as an Internet pass through (or I suppose a "Virtual Router").

I'm late to the world of smartphones etc so this might seem like a stupid question - but I would like to connect a PC and / or a tablet at times via the phone's Internet Connection (since it's paid for !!).

Any Ideas anyone -- phone is an HTC using the Android OS.

Cheers
jimbo

Answer:Htc phone as Internet pass through to connect W8 laptop / Tablet

You will need to install the native Windows driver for your phone, I'm guessing. Depending on what model you have will affect what drivers you will need to download. They can usually be found on the manufacturer's website.

Then you need to enable USB tethering from the phone (found under WiFi settings). Check these articles:
How to tether your HTC EVO 4G -- for free - Computerworld Blogs

Get USB Tethering on HTC HD7

Then you need to set it up as whatever kind of network you prefer. It will usually show up as a LAN adapter.

Use this guide if you're interested in using WiFi and a tether at the same time:

I just got a Samsung Intensity 2 and am looking to transfer my contacts from my old phone.
I had a Palm Centro that has infrared and have seen the infrared used to transfer that information before, I just have no idea how to do it.

Any ideas, or should I take them to the Verizon store and let them do it?
The nearest Verizon store is about 20 minutes away.
TIA.
 

Answer:Got new cell phone.

Hi. Verizon has a service that is free for their phones called Backup Assistant that you just have to activate. Have you already activated your new phone? From what I'm seeing, the Palm Centro is compatible with it. The problem is if you have already transferred your number to your new phone.

It's pretty easy, using Verizon's site, to transfer you number from one phone to another, set up backup assistant, reactivate your new phone, then again activate backup assistant. Verizon has it all layed out for you, or you could call their customer service and they'd do it all for you.

https://wbillpay.verizonwireless.com/vzw/nos/ba_nab/overview_def.jsp

So I guess the questions are:

-Have you already activated your new phone?
-Do you have an online account set up with them?

So my 2 year contract has been up for my cell phone, but my iPhone 4 is in absolute perfect working order. Of course, every time I have to call Verizon Wireless for any questions, they like to tell me that I am eligible for a new upgrade.rolleyes The last thing I want to do is upgrade (and pay $300) just so I could get that obnoxious 'Siri' voice with the iPhone 4S. On top of that, I pretty much despise Apple as a company based on my own experiences with their products and particularly their support. On top of that, I can't stand that when you buy anything Apple, they make it very difficult to use it with anything non-Apple...including their itunes songs (which I stopped buying about 3 years ago in favor of Amazon's mp3's).

SO, now with the announcement of the Apple iPhone 5, I decided to go out there and see what else is just as good or better than an iPhone.

In my research, I found the Samsung Galaxy S3, but that's a droid and I'm not a droid fan, which is why I went with the Apple.

The other one I found that I Want! and will definitely buy if it's as good as it looks is the Nokia Lumia 920, which will be Windows 8 based: http://www.nokia.com/us-en/products/phone/lumia920/ Typically, I don't get excited about phones, but this thing, based on specs and ability, looks awesome. Not to mention its awesome looking.:drool The problem is Verizon has traditionally not carried the high end Nokia or windows based phones.
 

Answer:What cell phone do you want?

iPhone 5 basically is slimmer and has a bigger screen without HD that Android has been doing for years. If I didnt have all these paid for apps on my iPhone then I would go Android at this point. The iPhone 5 brings very little to the table this round.

Answer:Cell phone

Without any clue as to model numbers, its a hard call to offer constructive advice, but the Palm unit will allow the export (from the PC based copy on Palm Desktop) of the addresses and numbers to a .csv file.

If your new phone has connectivity to the PC, then it may be able to import them, but that would depend widely on the model and your own ability to connect it to a PC.

Alternatively the Palm will usually allow IR (InfaRed) beaming of the addresses, and if your new phone will receive IR data then that may be possible.
