Using a Tmobile Phone as a modem with a windows machine

First I would like to say you CANNOT use the sidekicks or Samsung Behold and Memoir as modems for almost anything else out there this will work.

This walkthrough will not work with any windows mobile phones. That is a different easier setup I will add later.
