I'm a newby, so PLEASE excuse my ignorance.  I've read I can use my Sprint Hitachi phone and its Internet connection to provide my laptop access to the Internet.  My User's Guide mentions it, but does not say how to make it happen.  Is this done through Activesync?  If so, how?  If not how?  Thanks in advance!!!

You can use some Windows Mobile devices as a modem, and you will need a driver on your PC and the "OK" from your operator. Sprint is known for crippling devices, preventing them to be used in this way.

Better contact them to see if there is something that can be done, or check
