Tether Behold 2

I will show you how to tether a Samsung Behold 2 to use it’s data connection on a laptop. I recently did this for a friend and I had a difficult time finding the resources to do this. This guide is to help those who have Windows 7 64 bit in particular because many people have report errors when trying to install the drivers. The phone is with T-Mobile and according to them, they support tethering but at the moment they don’t have official support or guides for it.
Samsung Behold 2
On your phone:

  1. Install PdaNet on your Samsung Behold II through the Android Market.
  2. Go to Settings, USB Settings, select Samsung PC studio and click Save.
  3. Go back to Settings, click Application Settings, Development, and check USB debugging.

On your computer:

  1. Behold II Drivers: http://www.getyourdroidon.com/builds/otherstuff/Behold_II_USB.zip
  2. PdaNet for Windows 7 64-Bit: http://pdanet.co/bin/PdaNetA245x64.exe (Check for the latest version).
  3. Click Start, Right click “Computer”, go to Properties, and select Device Manager.
  4. Device manager

  5. Connect your phone and find the “Android ADB interface” or “Samsung Android USB Device” with a yellow exclamation point.
  6. Right click it and select “Browse my computer for driver software”.
  7. Click Browse and select the unzipped folder of Behold II USB on located on the Desktop.
  8. Click Next. A pop-up will appear; choose “Install this driver anyway”.
  9. After installing, you’ll receive a pop- up that says “SAMSUNG USB Composite Device” has been successfully installed. You might also receive a few errors, disregard them.
  10. Go back to the Device Manager and you’ll see that the USB Controllers and Drivers were installed.
  11. You might have to disconnect and re-connect your phone to the computer for it to be recognized.
  12. Now, install PdaNet for Windows 7. A pop-up will appear asking if you want to reinstall the Android USB driver; click No. The program should finish installing. Click Finish.
  13. Run the PdaNet on both devices and you should now be able to access the internet.

If there are newer versions of software or drivers, I’m unaware if this guide will help you. Also, I’m not liable for any damages to your devices. Use this at your own risk.

I hope this helps solve your issues tethering the Behold 2. After this experience, I’m glad that I have an iPhone. It’s much more easier to mod. 😉

    I posted this for the sake of anyone having problems because other resources online have failed to help me.
    Good thing I made it to the first page of google 😉

    I have a 16 GB iphone 3g, and have 19 apps. I have over 14 GB left, but I was wondering if i can fill all of it up with apps? I have read people have like 100 apps and it works weird because they have too many. But I do not have any music or videos. And only 3.2 MB worth of pictures. So how many more apps can I get? Thanks
