I own a Nokia Lumia 610 for the past 6 month but not a great fan of it as there is no user friendly or interesting features with it . Another reason is that we don't have an option for internet connectivity for desktop /laptop via phone through cable , unlike other mobiles device.
But recently I came ot know about an interesting option called tethering . I also want you to know and make use of this option in your mobile . Very useful feature for internet connectivity.
What is Tethering ?
Tethering is an interesting concept where we can connect our desktop/laptop to internet via phone
using wi-fi connectivity of the mobile . In other words your mobile will act as the wi-fi router . It fetches the internet connectivity from the mobile network and shares it to the other computer or wi-fi device . So don't worry if you are outside and you don't have a proper internet connection . Start using this tethering facility
Once this connection is set then we can start browsing on our laptop or systems treating your mobile as a wi-fi router . But for this you should have a working GPRS/Edge/3G connection enabled in your mobile .Check whether the data connection is in ON condition in the Settings--mobile network
To enjoy this go to the setting --internet sharing --On . Then you will get the broadcast name and the password displayed on your mobile . This means that , from this moment your mobile is a wifi router with the displayed broadcast name(connection name ) and password . Get connected using your laptop or wifi device and enjoy the internet connectivity through your mobile .
This feature is available in Nokia Lumia now - Hope this feature will be available in the other mobiles also . Check you mobile specification , whether it has the tethering option or internet sharing option with it .
The same option is available in Blackberry in the option called "Hotspot"
