I'm using Apple iPhone 3G. I travel a lot and I always use my iPhone while I'm traveling and I have a internet connection through my sim card. I need to always connect with Internet. This is one of my job requirement.
Thing is iPhone has a very much good display but this is not sufficient for me. The resolution of the iPhone sometimes is not suitable to view any mail and attachment. So, I want to know how can I able to connect my iPhone with a laptop as a modem.
Is there any solution? please help me.
I can’t use my iPhone as modem.
If you have a Wi-Fi-enabled Smartphone, you can share the internet connection on your phone with your laptop by creating a hotspot. Since both your iPhone and laptop support Wi-Fi connection, the best way to share the internet connection on your phone with your laptop is to create a Wi-Fi hotspot with your iPhone turning it into a Wi-Fi router.
In this setup, the phone is connected to the internet via 3G/4G cellular data connection then broadcasts this via Wi-Fi connection which your laptop can receive and connect. To begin, on your iPhone, go to “Settings” then “Mobile Data” or “Mobile”. On the next screen, tap “Personal Hotspot” then turn on “Personal Hotspot” by tapping the slide.
If Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are turned off, tap to turn them on when you are prompted. Next, tap “Wi-Fi Password” then enter a suitable password for the Wi-Fi hotspot you’ll be creating. Next, under “To Connect Using Wi-Fi”, check the name of the hotspot.
After this, on your laptop, click the Wi-Fi icon on the Menu bar or go to “Settings” then tap “Wi-Fi on an iPad” and select the Wi-Fi hotspot like for example, “Pete’s iPhone”. Enter the password you created earlier for the hotspot and that’s it. You should now be able to browse the internet on your MacBook Pro or any Wi-Fi-capable device using the connection provided by your iPhone.
