Connect to internet with Phone
Today i'm going to show how to connect your mobile phone for  Internet access without using pc suite or any alike software supplied with your device. Some of the devices will not be given any pc suite software and need to download the support software from the manufacturer's site. Well, i'll reduce your effort of downloading those things just for internet access. Windows 7 has a built in service known as Plug and Play which complies compatibility for many new era devices, and then we can connect our phones as Dial-up network(DUN) and access internet . Every device uses Plug and Play Standard now a days.

Plug and Play :   This is the feature that enables the end users to connect their devices to computers and use the devices without any extra effort.  Windows Vista also had this feature but Windows 7 has greater ease for Plug and Play and Wide range of devices like game pads or joysticks, wireless keyboard/ mouse, thumb drives/flash drives, speakers and much are supported.

You can connect your phone via USB or Bluetooth to connect to the internet.But bluetooth users should go through an extra step of pairing your bluetooth equipped laptop (some desktop also come with built in bluetooth) with your phone, this i have mentioned in the last step.
