    Default Possible to Setup Wireless Connection from a separate computer?

    So I'm figuring this isn't possible but I thought I would check and see just for fun.

    I'd like to setup a wireless connection at my work not from the Incredible itself but from a separate computer. I was hoping (dreaming) that there was some magical way I could sync the phone with the computer and punch in the info there. Namely the wireless password. And then save it and my phone would be able to access the wireless signal like normal from then on out.

    Why would I want to do such a thing you ask? I'll be honest, I dropped my phone in the toilet. After I flushed thankfully, but after drying it, and then a week or so later, I can't hit the P button in portrait mode. And of course you can't switch to landscape in the wireless connection and of course the password at work includes a P. I took it to Verizon and they won't replace it since it got water in there and I guess they knew that from the dot inside or mind reading. (Bluffing did not sway the counter woman at all).

    Like I said, I don't have high hopes here, but thought I would check, because there's always hope, you can do anything, reach for the skies, etc, etc, etc.

    why not send the key to your phone (IM, email, sms, etc) and then copy and paste it in?

    You sir, are a genius.

    The copy paste feature in gmail is kinda awkward (and what's up with that?) but what I did was type the password in a message draft while in landscape, then copy before sending, then went back and pasted it in. Totally worked.

    I knew someone on here would have a good suggestion.

    Install Graffiti for Android (free) and always have your 'p' available. (even for the doctor)
    Now that I have my N1 whenever my wife says "Are you sure?" I go online and show her.

    The QR code of my Avatar is for a link to bone marrow donor registration. The more donors that are registered, the better a match for those receiving the transplant. It can not ONLY make the difference between life and death from excruciatingly agonizing graft vs host disease, but it can make an enormous difference in over all health care costs.

    It was a funny story. At least it was funnier than I dropped it on the ground.

    I remember graffiti from the old palm days, I'm not sure it's something I feel like getting back to. Plus most of the time my P issues are minor cause I can turn the thing landscape. It's only occasionally that I have a burning P problem. (did you see what I did there?)

    I know not to many people are going to agree with me but I would recommend insurance. I once mashed the screen on accident on my LG voyager and they replaced it the next day.

    I used ausion insurance through Verizon.

    I know its to late for this phone but maybe when you get your next phone or some thing.
