    The ability to tether was discovered in a debugging screen for the Samsung Focus.
    From wmpoweruser.com - and other forums reported it as well.

    1) open your phone and dial "##634#" then press call. You’ll go into the Diagnosis Menu (going forward this icon appears in your programs so you don’t need to dal that again). This is just a phone dialer with a little icon and note on top.

    2) In diagnosis mode (phone dialer) dial "*#7284#" and a dialogue will pop up letting you change the settings from Zune to modem or "Modem, USB dialog.". You want to go with "Modem, Tethered Call". It will restart you phone after a few seconds. Once it restarts, connect to your PC over USB and drivers will be installed on your computer. Now go to your connections on your PC and you’ll see that a Samsung modem was added.


    3) on your PC you need to change the setting for the Samsung modem. If you set it to prompt for user name you’ll be able to put in the login info. This is all it is:


    number: *99***1#
    user name: WAP@CINGULARGPRS.COM
    password: CINGULAR1
    Go to connect and BAM. You’re tethered. I will tell you it went to ‘register’ the first time and failed. The second time worked and now I can connect and disconnect by plugging/unplugging my USB cord and I’m tethered baby! "

    Totally my bad... I checked the Forums first to see if it was already posted instead of checking the main page.
    Delete this post if you see fit since the information is redundant.

    I'd you are having driver issues, make sure the Zune desktop software is running when you plug the phone in via USB.

    Does this work for ALL carriers? Seems like the login name is for AT&T only.
