Forgive my ignorance.. Can we do that??? Can we use the computers internet connection for phone??
Hehe, no problem with your ignorance
Connect your phone to your computer by using the USB cable that followed in your box.
When your phone detects it's connected to the computer, standard settings are that the phone will then pop up a window asking what you want to do. Then chose "Internet Pass-Through" (bottom option), and wait about 20 seconds. Hey presto, and your phone should have internet =D! (this does require that you have installed the HTC sync app I think, as the program probably has some drivers that are needed by the phone).
It can also go the other way. If you need internet on your laptop, and have a good signal (3g or Wifi) on the phone, then just connect and chose the option called "USB tethering". Wait 20 secs, and then you should be online (requires again the HTC sync app to be installed, I think).
If however, this pop-up on the phone don't come, connect the phone to the computer, then go: Home screen -> Options -> Wireless & Networks -> scroll all the way down and the bottom two options are the ones described
Hope you get your google account set up soon =(. But yea, as stated in earlier posts by me, I think the default of HTC is to block application access if you dont have 3g, H or wifi on. At least my phone will refuse to connect to anything "speed" demanding if I don't have those. Good luck
