Get Internet to my laptop through Androidphone

I have internet connection through Android phone. I plugged the phone to my laptop installed drivers, I also installed Tether, adb drivers..but still cannot connect to internet using my laptop, i can connect to internet using Android phone.
 When I go to Android phone /Internet connection mode, I get :a warning message saying that if you want to subscribe to mobile hotspot/mobile broadband connect. call
 consumer: 800.  xxx.xxxx

I thought when I have internet connection through a smartphone I should be able to connect the phone to my laptop and connect my laptop to internet..Is there anything that I missed to get my laptop connected to internet through my phone?

my laptop has windows 7 enterprise edition 64 bits

Any help will be appreciated

@jskfan...michael is correct about a phone contract. Over the past year, most US cellular providers have locked the tethering feature of the android phone. In order to get this feature unlocked you would need to subscribe to hotspot/WIFI  services. However, you could install a custom rom on your android (which would have tethering unlocked for free); though it would void your warranty on your phone by doing so.

I forgot to say that you need an Android phone contract that supports this type of connection.
