Learn How to Connect a USB Modem to Your Android Device

It seems that with modern day smartphones, we increasingly need access to the Internet–not only for communication such as Emails and text messages, but for apps, synchronization, and more. For many folks including yours truly, we keep our mobile data on just so we don’t miss those Facebook notifications, messages, or Snap Chats, even if by doing so, we’re sacrificing our precious battery life. If you find yourself in a situation where mobile data and WiFi are not available to you, you can now surf the Web by connecting a USB modem to your device.

XDA Senior Member ISF created a simple guide that teaches you how to connect one of these USB modems to your Android device with only an OTG cable. The process is quite simple and straightforward, requiring you to download and install an app, configure the necessary network information, and connecting your Modem to your device. In order to do this though, your Android device must be rooted. ISF has also recorded a video teaching you this process as well so you can have a more visual understanding of what needs to be done.
