Just to resume a lot of questions regarding this subject. There is a list of steps to get your 3G data connection shared with yout PC via USB for each device.

--== HTC HD7 ==--

1. Download XAP file
2. Download the HTC USB Modem drivers
3. Deploy XAP file to your phone
4. Turn off your Data connection in your phone.
5. Run DFRouter and click on “HTC Modem”
6. If you only downloaded driver package just unzip to any folder, then Open Device Manager (recommended for Win7 64bit).
7. Find USB\VID_0BB4&PID_0EFF&REV_0000&MI_01 and force update driver with HtcUsbMdmV64 (inside unzipped folder)
8. Find USB\VID_0BB4&PID_0EFF&REV_0000&MI_00 and force update driver with HtcVComV64 (inside unzipped folder)
9. You will get two new device HTC USB Modem and HTC Diagnostic Interface (COM8)
10. Connect device to PC, open HTC USB Modem and select Advance Label
11. Add below command +cgdcont=1,”ip”,”APN”
(APN = Your carrier’s APN)
12. Create a new connection with HTC USB Modem, diag number is *99# and disabling IPV6
13.Just connect without user name and password.
============================================================

--== Dell Venue Pro ==--

1. Download the HTC USB Modem drivers
2. Edit both HtcUsbMdmV64.inf and HtcVComV64.inf files from the extracted drivers replacing the HTC device IDs with VID_05c6&PID_3199. Leave the &MI_00.
3. Go to EM(##634#), and go to Service Center, swithcing to Composite Mode. The password is *#301#.
4. After the fone reboots, install the 2 modified device drivers as you would do in HTC tutorial.
4. Continue following the HTC guide from step 9.
============================================================

--== Samsung WP7 Devices ==--

1. Download Samsung USB Drivers and install it
2. Dial ##634# then press the Call button
3. On diagnosis screen, Dial *#7284# and press Call button
4. A “Microsoft USB Test” screen will show up which allows configuration of USB Path Control settings (options available is Zune Sync; Modem, Tethered Call; and Modem, USB Diag). Select Modem, Tethered Call. The phone will restart and activate the setting. Windows will detect and install the driver from the device. A phone modem named Samsung Mobile Modem will be installed.
5. Now you can create a connection dial-up on your windows as step 9 in HTC HD7 tutorial.
============================================================

--== LG WP7 Devices ==--

1. Download LG USB Drivers and install it
2.Launch the LG phone dialer, and dial ##634#, then press the Call button to bring up a list of applications under the screen title of “MFG”.
3.When asked to input password, enter 277634#*# to unlock the password-protected MFG.
4.Turn off the data connection in Settings -> Network Mobile.
5.Start MFG and go to the USB Switching option in Menu Engineer -> Port Setting.
6.Select the QC COMPOSITE and validate.
7.The phone will automatically restart to activate the setting.
8.Connect the phone to PC with a USB cable.
9.Windows should automatically detect the Windows Phone 7 and install driver from the device. A phone modem named LGE CDMA USB Modem will be installed.
10.Edit or configure the LGE CDMA USB Modem settings or properties, and add in additional parameter in the string (change APN for your APN name):
+CGDCONT=1,"IP","orange"
11.Manually create a new dial-up connection that uses the LG USB modem with phone number to dial as * 99 # as HTC HD7 tutorial.
============================================================

While tethering via USB, the synchronization with Zune software may not be working. In this case, just disconnect the USB cable and connect over Wi-Fi connection to sync up with Zune software. And the disclaimer is that the hack violates most mobile carrier’s terms of service, and may cost users a lot of money for overage charge if they’re on limited data plan.

Also, I didn't tested all devices cause I just have a HTC HD7 and all information here was a compilation from some blog bosts I found over the web. I hope moderators can stick it somewhere so people can stop creating new posts regarding this subject 'cause I'll keep this post updated and, when the WIFI/BT/Cableless tethering comes UP, I'll update it here.

I hape it help. Enjoy it.

Best regards...

Yep, I still working on figure out how to do this. If there is a way to open a socket on the phone and listen on some ports, I can quickly do that.

Also, you will only be billed from your carrier if you dont have a illimited data plan. At least, I'm not charged from nothing and run just fine. ;)

Thanks a lot for compiling all this information and getting it to us. One question though. Do you have to update drivers on each pc you want to tether with? Also, think the link to the HTC USB Drivers is wrong;)

Yes, every PC that you are connecting the phone, you will need the USB driver. And sorry about the link. I already fixed it.

I've been following this thread for two days now (in the HD2 WP7 forum, http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=922000) but so far I'm not able to get my HD7 going with 3G tethering (always return error code of 692 despite me having to turn off the data connection in phone and having forced update the two drivers from HTC Sync for Android).

See if anyone else can get it going on HD7... :D
Weird... I'm replying to you right now from my device connection...

In my modem log, I'm getting the following:

01-27-2011 13:44:30.317 - Opening Modem
01-27-2011 13:44:30.317 - 115200,8,N,1, ctsfl=0, rtsctl=1
01-27-2011 13:44:30.317 - Initializing modem.
01-27-2011 13:44:30.327 - DSR is low while initializing the modem. Verify modem is turned on.
01-27-2011 13:44:30.327 - CTS is low while initializing modem.
01-27-2011 13:44:30.337 - Send: AT<cr>
01-27-2011 13:44:32.350 - Timed out waiting for response from modem
01-27-2011 13:44:32.350 - The modem failed to respond to the initialization command, Retrying one more time


I've already put the extra initialization command into the modem advanced properties, under "Device Manager", and properties of the "HTC USB Modem"..

Maybe the format of my string is something wrong? I'm using this:

+cgdcont=1,"IP","mobile.three.com.hk"

Okay, just to report back, it is now working properly. After some messing around - by not enabling (unchecking) the dial-up properties of IPV6 (so left with IPV4), connectivity went through flawlessly.

thanks everyone!

The APN field is you APN name configured on your device. Not the APN Address.

In my case here in Brazil it is "TIM CONNECT FAST" so my command should be +cgdcont=1,"IP","TIM CONNECT FAST"

sp.telus.com

=)... WORKS MINT!!!!
, will report if charged when telus updates my data usage/billing info

I'm stumped. Tried the APN address, the APN names, with data on/off, with APN in the cellular settings and without, IPV6 off etc. and nothing. Perhaps it's a T-Mobile US problem? Because I've tried the APN names "T-Mobile" and "T-Mobile US" and still get the 692 error...Any suggestions?

Success

Finally i got it working on my HTC-HD7 (Windows 7 x64 Prof).

The one thing a would like to add is I configured the "PPP" settings in the adapter settings (let ony LCP checked) but i don't think this was the breakthrough.

After some play-around in settings (PPP on pc for example, disable Wifi/Wlan on phone) I managed to get the Error "668" instead of "692", also data connection was disabled. Restarting the phone made it work!

Just make sure to have the right driver installed and restart your phone after disabling the data connection that helped for me!

Remember to disable IPv6.
I use the "*99#" number and +cgdcont=1,"ip","internet"
for o2 germany apn

Edit: Let the default COM port.. I didn't change the COM port and it works now.. If you changed then delete the devices from device manager and start from the beginning

good luck

how is everyone dialing *99#? are you calling using your computer or your dialpad on WP7's?
You dial with your computer, where you set up the dial up connection.

Aditionaly for everyone with 32Bit Systems (like me...) who have troubles finding the drivers, take these from this post:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=10949837&postcount=78


It got it to work with my HTC Mozart 7 and german provider "BASE".
Now I'm curious how this is charged by the provider..... hope this is covered by my dataconnection flat.
