Getting A Wireless Connection On Your Smart Phone

If you’re in an area with not-so-great internet access, you might be relieved to know that you can get online with your cell phone – you just have to use it as a wireless router. All you need is a phone that has internet capability as well as a data plan. You also need a laptop and a USB cable. Once you have these, you can create your own WiFi hotspot. But there are certain things to be aware of before trying this out. First, the data limits for your particular package can be reached very quickly when you use your phone in this way. And so checking into charges for extra data usage is a smart idea. Similarly, your phone’s battery life will run out fast, so it’s a good idea to plug your phone in while you’re using it as a router.
