    Hi, can anyone tell me whether I can use my X10 as a modem for my laptop?

    I've been told that if I download PC suite then I can but I can't seem to get my phone to sync with it.

    Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks

    When you plug your phone in to your computer, unlock your phone and select internet sharing.

    Think its only HTCs that have that option. Or 2.1 phones, not sure.

    Try PDAnet. They Mac tether and the paid app for your phone is 9.99. They have a free trial too.

    Hey guys, please keep warez off this forum.

    I would also second the suggestion to try PdaNet. Works very well.

    If you want wireless tethering and have rooted your X10, then definitely look at Barnacle. It's free, and works wonderfully, though will eat your battery for lunch.

    until they provide modem driver for android phone, especially sony xperia, then they will be impossible to make your phone as a modem and bridging the connection (eg: dial from your pc using *99#). right now the only option is to share your already connected internet by your phone with a pc, which means phone act as a router.

    you may download 2.3 gingerbread and update your android... thats it!
    you now have a wifi hotspot on your phone to connect your laptop and use as a modem.
