Re: How to use Z10 as Wifi USB Adapter (NOT internet tethering)

Yes, if you turn off either Mobile Network or Data Service and then try to turn on Internet Tethering, it will require you to turn on both.

Ok.... I can tell you this: I have an app called "Data Usage Counter" that counts you mobile data and your WiFi data in real time. And just to check on what you are saying, I connected the Z10 to my laptop and turn on the Internet Tethering. The flow of data was going thru the WiFi and NOT thru the mobile network, just as I thought. However, if you still have doubts, call your network providewr technical support and ask them too.

Re: How to use Z10 as Wifi USB Adapter (NOT internet tethering)

I probably don't need the app as I am actually in IT field. I know how to tell the difference by checking the IP ranges, plus I am able to check my mobile data usage by login to my network provider's website, it clearly shows I used their data. Trust me on this, I wouldn't have come here to post if it had worked for me.

 

I guess I will just give up, or check someone else's Z10 see how theirs work in this case, if I'm lucky enough to find someone who uses Z10 :smileyhappy:

 

Thanks for your answering!
