    If your computer has windows 7, you can use a program called Connectify to create a hotshot that will work for devices such as these tablets.

    First off a Wireless router is extreamly cheap now. You could always teether it off you cell or buy the TMobile prepaid card that we have all been discussing.

    This only works if the computer running Win7 has a capability to broadcast.

    The others are correct, the only ways to get the tablet online is via the WiFi or a Carrier Network. Both are actually very easy to set up, but unfortunately are your only solution.

    Good luck.

    I just started on the forum and are not familiar with the Tmobile prepaid card. Do you need to have tmobile as your cellphone carrier or can you just buy the card??

    any help is much appreicated.

    If you have a network set up I assume you could use a USB to network connector ????

    The T-mobile card is sweet. Just buy the cheap cell at BB and it comes with time ($) and the sim. Activate it (I did it from the phone). then put it in the S7. Each day just buy a very$1. 49 All day pass for data. I figured this is the cheapest. You can also use ATT but quite expensive. Never did get 3G here in Gilbert, az.

    Can you also get a sim card from Verizon that will work in the Huawei? With the sim card can you then make phone calls? How about video calls since it has a front camera?

    Thing to do is go buy a wireless card and drop it in your pc, or get a wireless router . Connect your cable modem to wireless router and the router to your pc. Now you can connect your S7 to your wireless internet connection.

    Yes and you still cant use cell companies that dont have sims. Look at bb, they have a new wireless modem... No sure wha the rates are though.
