SmartPhones Internet Push

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Some of the smartphones say that they can push internet to computers or laptops, does anyone know if this could work on a a console, like a 360?

Actually you can. If you have a Windows Mobile device then you can use the guide on this page to use the data connection on your phone to broadcast a wifi adhoc signal.
I've used it for laptops in the past and had someone play an online game without too much lag.
To get this to work you would obviously need the wireless connection thingie for the Xbox.

Yes, this works very well, me and ted tried this out at work the other day. I was running a game, and working with an internet browser at the same time, no lag what so ever, and the bandwidth was great. Just watch out, it will drain your battery pretty fast, i believe i crunched his down to 60% within an hour of intensive gaming

HTC Mogul... the Alltel version. It's also known as the Titan, Mogul (Sprint), XV6800 (Verizon), and PPC-6800 (Alltel).

Some providers have different stipulations on Internet Tethering, however if you have an unlimited data plan there should be no extra charges for doing so.
This means that owning a smartphone is much more useful than buying an internet card for your laptop.

Thanks +Rep. I am going to get the Blackjack 3 on cingular once it comes out and I hope I can get tethering.
