  1. 1

    Ensure that your current cell phone service plan supports cell phone tethering (connecting a device to the Internet through a cell phone). Certain cell phone carriers discourage cell phone tethering and may leverage fines if you use your Motorola Razr2 V8 as a modem.

  2. 2

    Download cell phone tethering software that will allow your computer to make data calls through your Motorola Razr2 V8. This software and/or driver is usually available on your cell phone carrier's website.

  3. 3

    Press the centre button to access the phone's main menu and select the "Settings" option.

  4. 4

    Select the "Connections" option in the "Settings" menu; select "USB Settings" in the next screen and then select the "Modem" option.

  5. 5

    Run the cell phone tethering software. The software will recognise the Motorola Razr2 V8 USB modem and attempt to create a profile (on the computer) for making data connections.
