How do I connect to the internet on my PC though my blackberry

Hello

 

I have unlimited data download from TMobile.  I am a realtor and the programs we use cannot be really seen on the blackberry.  I was told that I could connect my blackberry to the laptop and use the internet on the PC through the blackberry.  Does this make sense, lol

What your wanting to do is called tethering. There are some instructions on how to set it up over on BlackBerryFAQ.com.

Re: How do I connect to the internet on my PC though my blackberry

Do these instructions result in internet connection through data plan or voice time? 

 

I am interested in tether to blackberry Curve through data plan.

Re: How do I connect to the internet on my PC though my blackberry

I tried the steps mentioned at http://www.blackberryfaq.com/index.php/Using_BlackBerry_As_Modem

 

I am getting an error "The modem failed to respond. Make sure it is properly connected and turned on.  If it is an internal modem or is connected, verify that the interrupt for the port is properly set."  while trying perform Query Modem mentioned in the point  7.

 

I have a blackberry 8100 pearl with Vodafone unlimited download data services. I am also running the latest desktop manager 4.7. I am located in India.

 

Can anybody help please.

HI javed001,

 

I had the same problem, but I just ignored the error message and continued anyway the other steps. It did work like a charm. Took less than a second to establish the connection !

 

Hope it helps !

FYI -- the carriers have ultimate control over what services you can use over their network. It may be rubbish, but that is what your contract with them stipulates.
