Accessing internet from my laptop using Balckberry Curve?

Wondering if it is possible to connect to the internet from my laptop by connecting to my Blackberry with a USB cable?  I have done this with other cellular phones. 

 

Thanks

Type in tethered modem in search on blackberry main page.

 

It will give you a full run through on how to do this.

 

You will also need your apn, username, password and dial up number from your service provider.
