That's a basic phone so you can't tether or use mhs.  You could add a line to get a jet pack for that or upgrade to smart phone and with more everything plan mhs comes free

on the Verizon wireless website. when you compare devices,  the Samsung convoy 3 to other phones, open the specs. it states that the convoy 3 is mobile hotspot capable but not Wifi. have a USB cable to connect to the laptop. thanks for your reply.

I am thinking about buying this phone, and would like to know the answer to this as well.

From what I see, you need Verizon Access Manager on your PC to start with:

There seem to be step by step instructions here:

VZAccess Manager Interactive "How To" Simulator

I don't know if you can connect by USB or Bluetooth.  I don't think wireless is an option since it looks like the Convoy 3 doesn't have wifi capabilities.

Please let me know if this helps and you can make any headway on this.  Please also tell us what operating system your PC is using, i.e. Windows XP, 7, 8, or 8.1

Thanks!
