Re: BB software on PC

Hello,

 

If your BB and your service plan (from your carrier) support tethered modem usage, then you could activate that and use the BB as your internet connection for your computer. Start here:

  • KB05178 Support for tethered modem use

Note that not all carriers support that service and, of those that do, many charge extra fees for it. You need to talk to them (Vodafone, according to your profile) to be sure.

 

If you can make it work, then you'd go to this location from your PC browser (while using your BB as your internet connection):

Good luck!
