Drivers for computers

To download and install drivers for a Windows computer, follow these steps:

 

Tethering works with Windows® 7, Windows XP, Windows Vista®, and Mac OS. For more information on tethering with operating systems, go to www.android.com/tether#usb

 

For Windows, you must install the driver on your computer before you can tether. To install the driver, go tohttp://www.samsung.com/us/support/downloads/SGH-T959HABTMB and click Software.

 

When you connect your phone to your computer with the USB cable, you can either tether or access files on the memory card, but you cannot do both. If you want to use your computer to access the memory card, then you must turn off tethering.

 

When you connect your phone to your computer with the USB cable to tether your computer, you will still be able to make and receive calls.
