freddys, this thread is about tethering to a NON-BlackBerry smartphone. Yours is a BlackBerry.

 

Yes, your 8530 will tether to the Playbook.

And Bridge, as well. http://appworld.blackberry.com/webstore/content/19435

Re: Tethering the Playbook to a Non-Blackberry Smartphone

if your device support personal wifi, it will be a much better experience with your playbook

 

i used 3 diff driods with persoanl wifi and it worked very well, I was unable to get tether to work but I am no droid geek.

Re: Tethering the Playbook to a Non-Blackberry Smartphone

Works with my LG optimus, just internet teather no bridge....But there is no reason a bridge isn't possible with any smart phone...The only things limiting this are software constraints and incompatibility issues. I think as we progress into the future all devices will become more open to comunicate with each other...even apple has opened slightly in the last few years and they are notorious for limiting their devices by building software that limits usage. And there coding of most smart phones is essentially the same...

Re: Tethering the Playbook to a Non-Blackberry Smartphone

I have a big issue, I have a nexus s  and i rooted, so native tether does not work so i use open garden wifi tether, i have android tablet, laptop and i can connect to the internet and do all the stuff, but when i try the Playbook it does not recognize the opengarden at all, only if i turn the native tether option it says android ap, but anyways i can not surf. But as i explained I use the Open Garden and all my devices work through my phone except the playbook. Any Suggestion? Thanks and i Hope i explained well
