Re: Connect Internet using Sony Ericson x10 mini pro

try other apps there are myriad options on the market

like

https://market.android.com/details?id=com.tethernow&feature=search_result#?t=W251bGwsMSwxLDEsImNvbS5.....

this works really good, you have to 1) root then install 2) Barnacle

https://market.android.com/details?id=net.szym.barnacle&hl=en

on your computer go to

market.android.com type tether and voila

Try Menu>Settings>Wireless & Network Settings then select Tethering & portable hotspots whilst phone is connected and you should be able to select USB Tethering.

Hope it helps.

Oh my bad, I mis-read and didn't see  "X10" Mini-pro.  Assumed it was one of the 2011 phones.

Ok so that solution is not for your phone.  You need an app to help you out, try either EasyTether or PDANet both available from the Android Market and offer a free trial then you can either carry on using it for free but certain functions aren't availabe or you can pay for the full app.

I have PDA Net on my X8 and X10 (altho the X10 now has Android 2.3 so can follow my first instructions).  Basically you install the app on the phone and also on your PC/Laptop and as soon as you connect your USB it starts up from memory altho you can also click on the icon in your task bar on your pc screen you get the option to connect.  You also need to make sure that you have USB Debugging ticked on your phone... Settings>Applications>Development>USB Debugging.

Let me know how you get on.
