LG Optimus 7 Can Also be Used as USB Modem


The Samsung Focus isn’t the only device that can act as a USB modem for your laptop or computer. In turns out that with a little bit of elbow grease, those rocking the LG Optimus 7 can also utilize this hidden feature of Windows Phone 7. Below are the steps to get it working (and by our measure, it should only be a matter of time before a procedure is available for every Windows Phone 7 device).

1. Unlock your LG Optimus 7 to access the program MFG (i.e. this is the passcode)

2. Download and install drivers for LG modem on your PC

3. Turn off the data connection (Settings / Network Mobile)

4. Start MFG and go to the menu “USB Switching” (Menu Engineer / Port Setting)

5. Select the “QC COMPOSITE” and validate (The phone restarts)

6. Connect it to the PC which is then automatically install the necessary drivers

7. Go into the modem settings “LGE CDMA USB Modem” then add an additional parameter in the string + CGDCONT = 1, “IP”, “orange”

8. Manually create a new connection using that modem as phone number * 99 #

And normally it should work
