Iíve recently installed BirdStepís SmartConnect onto my silver and black, original firmware, E71-1 on the UK T-Mobile network. Seemingly since then Iím seeing the occasional double-headed arrow at the top left of the screen within the signal meter when the device has connected using the GPRS or UTMS modem. Iím supposing that this means something like a shared connection but thereís no mention of it in my handbook and although I donít remember seeing this notification before installing SmartConnect, I also donít remember what I had for supper on Sunday evening!
I don't think SmartConnect is for sharing the connection (I may be wrong, though). If you want to use you mobile 3G modem with your notebook, you may want to use JoikuSpot (freeware).
