    True Noob here. I just got the 8830 (my first smartphone) and I'm wondering if I can use it to access the internet with my laptop? Thanks...

    Yes you can. I have not done it so I do not know all the steps, but from what I was told when I bought mine is there is some software on the disks that came with the phone that you load onto you computer and you can use the phone as an internet connection.
    I'm sure some one on here can give you better information than mine.

    Yes, I use it and it works great! I have an 8830 and verizon service so I have to pay $15 per month for the modem feature. Verizon had to active my account to support the modem feature. Basically all you have to do is install the verizon software (which came the the 8830) and connect the 8830 to your laptop via the usb.

    I sure you can go to the verizon site to download the software if you want it.
