Just got my wife a laptop for Christmas. It has Windows 8. Tried to Bluetooth tether and it won't connect. I can send files from phone to computer, just can't use data. Also, I tried to tether with usb. Phone would charge but the computer would not recognize the phone. I am trying to use phone's software to connect. I am on ICS. I know there are apps to tether, but it appears they have trouble with ICS as well. I am on Verizon if that makes a difference. Tried in both 3G and 4G areas. One last note, I can connect with usb and Bluetooth on Windows 7 laptop. Thanks for any help. I have searched forums but mostly found info from before Windows 8 was officially released so there was really no help.
