    well for laptops there are PCMCIA cards, but recently I have seen USB ones. You will need to go to the manufacturer or at least the Service Provider of your phone.

    Hi:
    Not sure what he wants in particular, but if one could connect one's cell phone to one's modem one could send/receive faxes and, more importantly, connect to the internet ANYWHERE without relying on WIFI or anything else and without paying high provider fees. In fact it's FREE at night and wekends, right?

    So if you know of a way to do this, pray tell!

    Unless you've subscribed to the data service with your cell phone company, you won't be connecting your computer to the cellphone.
