If your phone is Android-based then using it as a bridge to connect to Internet is easier then it sounds.

Please open the applications menu and locate Settings. Navigate to Wireless and networks then locate Tethering and portable hotspots and enable Mobile AP. This option turns your phone into a router which you can use for Internet access. Make sure that Data is enabled so you'll have Internet on your laptop.

the lgl75c does not have "thethering and portable hotspots" option. it is a prepaid straight talk phone. so no, its not as easy as your answer makes it sound.
