Help with USB Modem and Laptop

Recommended Posts

Okay this is a little off the wall.  I just got a new cell phone and it just happens to have a USB connection.  It's got the little mini USB connector on the phone and I just happen to have one of those cables from another device.  So I downloaded the software (driver) for my laptop and I set the phone up as a USB modem.  I'm able to get my dial up software to recognize the phone and it calls AND connects to the Internet.  But that's as far as I can get. I can't web-surf and my email doesn't work.  I am connecting to the Internet because oddly enough my VPN software for my company will connect but nothing else seems to work.  I'm sure it's probably something simple............any suggestions?
