This is how i did it, using PdaNet App of the Google Play store
To use USB Tether, you need to install the PdaNet Desktop client on the computer from http://pdanet.co/android. You can also follow steps below to download the installer using your phone:
On the phone side make sure PdaNet has been installed from Android Market first, then
1.Tap to download installer for 32-bit Windows, 64-bit Windows or Mac OS. This file will be saved to the phone's SD card.
2.Connect your phone to the computer.
3.Mount the SD card as a USB drive on the computer. (On phone select "USB connected" from Notifications, or look for Mass Storage/Disk Mode under SD Card or USB settings.)
4.Run the PdaNet installer under the "download" directory of the USB drive.
Now that I have internet. I don't want to get shut down again. I need to desciase my PC to look like a phone.
I am going to use FireFox and a User Agent add on.
First, got to http://whatsmyuseragent.com/ on your phone and copy your user agent ID
For example my user agent is.
Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; U; Android 2.3.4; en-us; SCH-R720 Build/GINGERBREAD) AppleWebKit/533.1 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/4.0 Mobile Safari/533.1
Then do the following.
Once installed and restarted Firefox, simply go to Tools -> User Agent Switcher, and you will see a list of user agents which you can choose. By default there is only 3 user agents listed, namely Internet Explorer 6, Netscape and Opera. To add more, simply follow this steps:
Go to Tools -> User Agent Switcher -> Options.
Then click on User Agents and then click on Add.
Key in the necessary information for your custom user agent. For example, for MegaUpload toolbar user agent, try the following configuration:
It has been at least 6 months and I still have unlimited internet on my PC using my Samsung 747 smart phine as a hotspot.
However every time I use the internet. I use the Firefox user-agent and to make my PC to look my phone.
