We've all at somepoint had that need to use the Internet where it just hasn't been possible, such as in the car, or on vacation, where they charge a costly amount of money per hour to use their wifi. finally, I have come up with a simple way to get online no matter where you are.
There are two options to connect to the internet.
you can use your phones data service line by calling #777. please note that this will require a costly plan (for verizon an additional 60$ to your existing bill), but is the fastest plan available, giving near high speed internet
if you pay a monthly subscription for AOL, you can use their access numbers to connect to the internet. this is the cheaper and better value if you already pay the $30 a month for AOL or whatever it is. This option is miserably slow, with speeds around what i believe is 14 kbits, a slow dial up connection. with this connection, you will be able to use things like AIM and Email, but websites like facebook and youtube can take up to 5 minutes to fully load if you are lucky, and most of the time just time out (other words it gives up).
So with this being said, i will explain how to connect to verizon's service first, followed by connecting with AOL dialer, a program that comes with AOL 9.1.
Step 1: Some Things You'll Need
you will need
An LG En V 2 (I'm sure you can replace this with any other phone as long as it can be used as a modem, check with your provider to see if your phone can be used as a modem)
A Compatible USB Data Cable (LG EnV 2 uses a USB to Micro USB cable, which is availible online at websites like Newegg. This cable interface is newer, so it may be hard to find in stores.
A Laptop, Preferably with vista, or you will have to hunt the drivers down on the Internet. i believe Verizon has a driver and USB cable combo for a reasonable price
The driver (as mentioned above) vista will find it for you automatically
