Sorry, I dont mean to be a pain. I live outside of a small ski town, and have no land based internet connection here.There is no local wireless available either, I use a program called EasyTether to "tether" my phones 3G to my computer and use it for my internet connection. Since I am somewhat "grandfathered" in with Verizon, I have truly unlimited data on my phone, so no excessive data charges... Like I said previously, the laptop, for whatever reason, does not recognize my phone. I will have to go to town or somewhere with an open wireless signal with the laptop, if an internet connection is necessary. My plan was to update everything prior to turning it over to my coworker, but perhaps this was a bad choice in judgement. Please lemme know how I should I proceed. I suppose I didn't follow directions to the T. Apologies for any extra headache or inconvenience I may be causing you.
