Connecting to GPRS or 3G from Vista with Samsung Omnia – HowTo

This may be a nice event yesterday, when I need to couple my mobile with Vista based laptop. Here comes a howto!

  1. Power on your laptop and login. make sure that it is not connected to internet.
  2. Power on your omnia pro and connect it with laptop (I used USB)
  3. In the main menu of your mobile, choose Internet Sharing
  4. You will get internet sharing window, select USB as your PC Connection and the GPRS/3G profile under network connection
  5. Press Connect!

Thats all!

I am able to reach 130~150 Kbps with BSNL EDGE and 15 to 25 Kbps (!!!) with BSNL GPRS connection. Amazing upto 2.8 Mbps with 3G network!
