    I am using my laptop through my Metropcs phone's hotspot w/FoxFi. Works great with my different BROWSERS- no problem getting on-line. (need to use "user agent switcher" for some sites) However, I can't seem to get any of my desktop apps to work outside the browser. Tried using the Proxy settings & it didn't work either.., maybe I'm doing something wrong...?

    Welcome to Android Central! So you're using the phone as a wi-fi hotspot to provide internet access for the laptop, correct? What do you mean by desktop apps? You mean Windows programs like Microsoft Office? The term "apps" is generally used for programs on a mobile device, so I want to make sure we're talking about the same thing.
