We’ve been loving “quick settings” app, which is a complete free software that creates an ad-hoc wireless network and allows you to tether your computer using your LG Optimus V Android Phone’s internet connection. LG Phone Problem and Solution
Ok, to start, you need to set up your LG Optimus V: LG Android Phones
Note: you cannot turn it on in settings in the phone but once its on using quick settings, you can go into settings and set up a password for your network. LG-Optimus info

[...] VirginMobile's broadband and their Mifi device and the third is VirginMobile's LG Optimus V using LG-PHONES.ORG's simple instructions on tethering. Anyone have any experience to share about any of these options? [...]
Recently purchase an LG Optimus V– my first smartphone. Was recommended to turn off background apps to conserve battery. Having done that -now the two clocks on home page drift behind real time when phone is not in use. Advise on restoring clocks to proper time appreciated.
its easy i did it just go to app world download a teether app on you home screen press a empty spot that dont have a app should pop widget app and find the theether app and use it simple i get free internet on my laptop from virgin lg optimus v all for 25 bucks cool
Actually, the LG Optimus V creates an infrastructure wifi hotspot NOT ad-hoc. I know becasue I can wirelessly tether to my rooted Nook Color which cannot see ad-hoc networks unless modified to do so.
Thanks for the tip about the Quick Settings app. I’ve had it on my phone for a couple of months, but didn’t know that the Wi-Fi hotspot option was there because it was hidden.
The best tip on the internet. Got my laptop tethered to my unlimited 25 dollar a month unlimited data cell phone. goodby AT&T
I have used the quicksetting apps to tether 6GB last 2 weeks of my monthly $40 plan with VM. I dont know, but expecxt continued tethering next month may result in 10GB+ next month. My high use is mostly from watching tethered steaming video- It does say unlimited video in the fine print, but not unlimited downloads.
how is the speed compared to att&t, verizon and sprint? how long does it take for a page to load using virgin mobile on your laptoP?
works great!! thanks!
I have just read that Sprint will started throttling back service on those Virgin Mobile users who exceed 2.5gigs/month. Be prepared. I tether on my Optimus V, but only at the airport and things like that. If you are streaming video on your laptop with this, get ready for painfully slow data
Thanks, this is great
only works on V 2.2.1.
2.2.2 removes hotspot ability.
For Lg Optimus V Android 2.2.2., I followed this youtube video and was able to use wifi tether for root users for an ad hoc wireless connection to my laptop.
Can I snyc my LG Optimus Q from Straight Talk with my computer? It did not come with any software, is software availble for transferring file, pictures, sounds etc?
im looking to buy this phone i know its goint to be the updated 2.2.2 software but by getting this app will i be able to tether my laptop to it?
Virgin with Froyo 2.2.2 disabled wifi tethering: As soon as you use QuickSetting to turn on, 3G gets disabled. This page should be removed, since this feature is no longer available.
Great postings, I hope someone follows up on the above one soon. Thanks.
