Debug with Real Device but use PC's Internet (through MDS) Connection?

Is there a way to debug using the real device but at the same time, use the PC's Internet Connection?

 

I have mostly AT&T phones which I can simply swap out the SIM cards but I just got a Verizon Storm and I didn't get a plan for this because I just need it for testing.  I was wondering if there was an alternate way to get to the internet from the device without buying a data plan (and a 2 year contract!)

 

Thanks

Perhaps you can try Debug==>Attach to handheld from the JDE.

Manoj,

 

Wouldn't that just use the data connection on the device you attach?

Yes you are right. I believe it will just use data connection on the device.

I belive that at least BES connections will automaticly work via the teathered connection, but if your don't have bes you might be sol in that direction.

 

You could have someone you know who is on verizon call up and get the sim card unlocked,  Storms work on at&t EDGE.
