Hey. I'm Skylar, and today I'm going to talk a little bit about tethering. So tethering is kind of a loose term for connecting your phone to some sort of laptop or even a desktop, and using the phone's cellular connectivity in order to provide Internet to the device you're connecting it to. So, for instance, I have an Apple laptop here and I have an iPhone4. It's connected to A T&T's network and I have a shared data plan which includes a personal hotspot which is pretty handy. So, what I'm going to do is press my home button and slide to unlock. Here I am on my home screen and I'm going to swipe over to where I've got settings stored. So I tap settings, and then, you know what, first I'm actually going to connect my sync cable. So I just plug my sync cable in and then tap personal hotspot. Personal hotspot is very simple, so easy. All I have to do is tap on, that's it. It's working. If I scroll down a little bit here are the instructions to connect using USB, plug iPhone into your computer. Choose iPhone from the list of networks settings or services in your settings. So on a Mac this is going to be in the upper right hand corner. It's the icon that looks like WiFi. You would just click on that and click on the name of your iPhone. In my case it's Skylar's iPhone. And I would type in the password. On a PC, it's in the lower right hand corner. It's the same symbol sometimes. Other times it's those beep, beep, beep, beep, several bars. So you just click on the bars, select the name of your device, enter the password and that's it. It's connected. Thanks for watching. I'm Skylar.
