You don't have to download any applications.

Just go to [Settings] > [Wireless and network] > [Mobile AP settings], check [Mobile AP] and follow the on-screen instruction.

Hi all

I have problem using my sgs as data modem, if any one used it as data modem for accessing internet from pc/laptop running xp or wnn7 please help me.

I am trying to describe what I have done to access internet from laptop/pc by using my sgs as modem…

I am using edge/gprs service in my mobile to get internet, mobile Tethering is on, wifi is off, mobile ap is off, Bluetooth is off. My phone setting is settings- USB settings-ask on connection.
So when I connect the USB cable from my sgs to pc, I have the option to choose by which way I want to connect my sgs with pc. I then select "PC Internet" and if I am not wrong then this is the option to use sgs data modem (gprs, edge, hspda) to use internet by the pc/laptop.

My laptop is win xp and its- control panel- phone and modem-in modem tab Samsung mobile modem is installed after kies installed. I used the internet by using sgs as data modem from my laptop after first time kies installation and that time no problem or not hang up the phone. I just plug out the USB cable and after that day whenever I try “pc internet” mode my sgs hang up and need to plug out battery to start the phone again. I have reinstalled kies latest version but problem remain same

 I have tried with win 7, after connecting sgs and pc by USB cable in “pc internet” mode a Samsung mobile modem is installed automatically and then I used internet and download some thing by using my sgs edge modem. I plug out the usb cable because I can not find any safe way to disconnect the sgs from pc. After some time I connect the phone through USB cable to my pc and a Samsung mobile modem is installed automatically again but this time the modem is disabled and can not turn it enable to access internet. Restart the pc and also mobile but no change.

Thanks for listening and waiting for suggestion

really funny actually lol. I was searching around on the internet how to use my phone as a modem using it's data and not the phone. I unplugged my other modem to test it. I got samsung kies installed on win xp sp3. I choose on my phone when I plugged it in with usb internet for pc. And then I started reading and stuff.... about how to do it. I clicked links and browsed the internet.... when I noticed my modem was plugged out, the phone internet just worked! lol
