Tethering in UK?

So far, having difficulty tethering my playbook with my Bold 9780 when outwith wifi range. My carrier is Orange UK. Is this supposed to be possible?

 

Thanks

Re: Tethering in UK?

I have a BB Bold 9780 with O2 in the UK and I am tethering OK. Remember that you can only use the BB apps in the BlackBerry Bridge section of your home screen, other apps do not work. But you can type in a webpage address (in the BB Bridge section) and connect to the Internet as you would on your smartphone.

not all dataplans enable tethering, contact your carrier and see if extra charges will be incurred.

Re: Tethering in UK?

I'll warn you now, I contacted Orange before the PlayBook was released.

They told me that there were no tethering plans, and that tethering data would be something like the 'reasonable' price of £2 per 5MB or something like that (cannot remember exactly).

Needless to say, I've stuck with just using the Bridge Browser.

I'll give them credit, with that and their unwillingness to support the 9700 on OS6, they really know how to make 3 look attractive.
