Using my BB as an "air card"

Good day,

 

I see people using i phones as an air card to access the internet on their laptops by connecting the phone to with a USB cord.   Can the BB do the same?  

 

Thanks

Don

If you have OS 7.1.0.400 or greater installed on your 9360 model, you will get the "mobile hotspot" option, and some carriers do not allow it or will charge extra if you do. Confirm with ATT before you do.
