    It is possible to convert your Sony Xperia into a modem. For this you will have to follow the below mentioned steps. Firstly you need to install a third party application for this purpose. The name of this application is PDAnet. The user needs to install this app on the smart phone and also its companion file on the computer. Once that is done you will have to navigate to the settings menu and go to Development option. There you will have to check the USB debugging box. Now connect the computer to the phone and open the application and enable USB Tether option. Now select the icon on the computer and click on the connect option. Now the smart phone will start working as a modem for your computer.
