    I use my incredible to wireless tether my computers and I would like to also be able to connect a wireless printer to my incredible and have my computers print to it. Is this possible?

    Mine pairs via bluetooth. If printer is BT enabled, and on, go to settings, wireless and networks, BT settings, make device discoverable, and scan for devices.

    But none of my computers have bluetooth.

    Or are you talking about connecting bluetooth printer to incredible?

    Your printer has to be either wireless capable or Bluetooth capable. Is your printer either of those

    If your printer is network capable try printshare. It can be downloaded at the android market. Other wise pair it with your bluetooth

    I don't have a printer yet. I'm looking into buying a wireless printer so I would like to know if it will work the way I hope before I purchase yet.

    I don't have a home internet/router so that is why I'm using my phone instead and be able to print from my computer.
