Tether Windows Mobile 6.5 to a Computer

This method will show how to tether a Windows Mobile phone to your computer (namely a laptop) without the use of addition software.



Service Provider: Sprint
Phone: HTC Touch Pro (Windows Mobile 6.5)
Computer: Windows XP (Active Sync installed but not running)

1. Download and install PHM Registry Editor on phone.

2. Add/Edit the following values using the registry editor:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Comm\InternetSharing]
Extension=""

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Comm\InternetSharing\settings]
ForceCellConnection="Sprint"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Comm\InternetSharing]
MaxCMCon=0

3. Connect phone to the computer's USB

4. Open Internet Sharing, Click "Connect"

Side note: Only port 80 (HTTP) connections are allowed to communicate, meaning only browser related activity is allowed. Thus no external internet based applications will work, such as instant messaging. An easy work around is to use browser based applications such as Meebo for instant messaging.
