Use ZTE Z221 USB Internet Connection on Computer

I connected the ATT ZTE Z221 via usb to computer, and it installed modem drivers for that phone. How do I connect the computer via usb to the Media NET or whatever internet that phone uses on the computer?

If anyone found a way to make tethering work, I want you all to be aware that you will need to purchase a data plan AND a tethering plan. As far as I can recall, the data plan alone would be $40. The tethering plan would be $60 a month. That means $100 per month.

Please talk to an AT&T rep.

Yeah. In the phones modem settings, you have to set a username and password. Plug it on, on your computer, dial that number (*#99* I think) and in username and pass put what you set in the phone. You might have to change some settings in the modem though. Edit: can someone confirm that number for me? *#99# or *#99* Idk
