BB Bold 9780: Can we use it as external modem conneting through USB?

Hi All,

 

Im from India, Vodafone is my carrier. I couldnt able to connect to the internet in my laptop using my BB as an external modem. Is there any setting required. My carrier said i cannot use it as an external modem since i have activated BIS.

 

Please help me out if there is anyway that i can connect to the internet in my Laptop through USB.

If you connect your BlackBerry to the desktop software on your computer you should see a button in the bottom of the window which says something like "connect to internet". 

 

Click on that and it should connect your laptop to the internet. 

 

Bear in mind that Vodafone may charge you for this.
