My Device: Torch 9810

Blackberry Torch 9810 as a modem for Kindle Fire - is it possible?

Hello,

 

I use my BB Torch 9810 with my PCs as a tethered modem when I need to and it works great.  I wondered if anyone knows if I can do the same with my Kindle Fire (Android)?  That'd be awesome if I could get that working.  I already have a micro USB male to female connector, so I can hook the BB directly up to the Kindle.  I just don't know how to get it to work.

 

Thanks for any leads on how to try and get this working ...

Using the BB as a modem requires software on both devices. There is no software for that so I'd say the answer is it's not possible.
