    N8 use phone as modem - how?

    I had been using Joikuspot but hat doesn't connect anymore (?) I want to use the usb connection and the option "use phone as modem".

    I have N8 with Belle Refresh (The One cfw) and T-mobile (NYC).

    I have tried nearly all options. I even set up a dialup connection using *99# like I have read. But that one tells me that that connection is already in use (?).

    How do I connect my win7 laptop to the internet with my N8? (without using ovi suite)

    The problem might be t-mobile is blocking your using the phone as a modem. I have an N8 with AT&T and use it as a modem with the Nokia PC Internet Access application. I am not familiar with the custom firmware but maybe i'll try that one day.

    Hmmm, have you heard something about T-mobile trying to block things like this? Me, no. But maybe it is news.

    I have used Joikuspot to tether before, works well. (the trick is to use a user agent switcher on the laptop so it feels like a phone to the 'net).

    I would really like to figure out how to USB tether.

    The One is a good clean cfw. Gets a lot of play on this forum.

    I guess it is not available on the nokia website anymore so you will have to search the web for it. I think you can also use PC Suite to connect to the internet and more with the Nokia N8
