    Hi,
    I have completed all the steps to step 9 but I am stuck on step 10.
    Where do I open LGE CDMA USB Modem? On my phone or my computer?
    And how do I open it? It seems I cannot find LGE CDMA USB Modem on my computer nor my phone.
    Oh, by any chance could I get connected to internet through my cell phone’s 3G by wifi?
    Thanks

    Thanks for this post! I was able to tether using parts of your instructions, with some tweaks.
    Step 11 instead was at+cgdcont=1,”ip”,”APN”
    Step 12 I used the dial-up connection number of *99***1#

    Everything else remained as instructed. Phone is LG C900, running Windows 7.5 on AT&T here in Seattle.
