Tips & Warnings

  • Your computer will only use your phone as a modem when there are no other Internet connections available.
  • Your Internet speeds depend on how good your service is and what cell phone provider you are using.
  • Make sure your data plan is unlimited, or beware of how much you are using your phone as a modem, or you might run up a huge bill with data overages.
