Connect to internet via Blackberry 8100



I have a Blackberry 8100 and would like to connect my PC to the internat via my Blackberry. I have read that one can create a bluetooth connection between the PC and the phone and connect to the internet. 


I followed the steps outlined here:




but my phone does not have the Bluetooth PAN option.


Is there any other way so that I can connect to the internet via my phone?


I appreciate your help

Hi steingrw,


Welcome to the Support Community!

What version of BlackBerry® Device Software do you currently have on your BlackBerry® Pearl™ 8100 smartphone? Can you please clarify what you are referring to by PAN option? Can you provide more information on the issue you are having setting up the Bluetooth® modem?

Thank you for your reply!


I managed to set up the connection but then I was blocked by Rogers. The reason is that I have a 500mb data plan and Rogers blocks tethering for such data plans :-(
