Re: HOWTO : use your blackberry as a USB device

Your question is off topic. This discussion is about using a USB drive, not tethering.

That being said, the modem drivers are for the device that requires to be connected to the mobile phone. If you have an Android tablet, and want to tether it to a mobile phone, you need to read the android documentation.
That documentation will provide the configuration required on the tablet part, as well as some requirements that you will have to configure on the APN side of your BlackBerry device.

Once that done, you will need to pair your tablet and your 9700 via BlueTooth and it will work (provided your current TMobile subscription allows you to do internet tethering).

Re: HOWTO : use your blackberry as a USB device

I'm sorry if I was in the wrong post but  this is the only thing I could find on the site about  modem drivers.  My tmobile people told me to get the software through blackberry so thats why I was searching here.  I can't find anything in the android info but I will keep looking.


Thanks for letting me know that its at least doable, I dont' understand why its such a treasure hunt, its seems like it should be such a simple thing to do.  I really appreciate your help in pointing me in the right direction.  Thank you!

I find it surprising that the USB drivers did uninstall the DM, but anyway that's the right way to do it.

Re: HOWTO : use your blackberry as a USB device

I have installed the drivers etc ok on my lap top but my blackberry device (Bold 9900) does not give me all the settings options you list when I go Options>Device>Storage (which says change media card settings) the only options I get are "enable compression" (on/off) and "media card Support" (On / off) so how am I supposed to set all the other things you say need setting or is this very new device set to do it all automatically? I won't plug it into the computer till I know. I find also my old 8990 is exactly the same.

Actually I took the media card out of it to go in my 9900 and it definately recognised the card and asked for the original PIN that was used with the card.

I have seen this problem of settings people say are there actually being missing, many many times. Wish my company would give us Samsungs!

Re: HOWTO : use your blackberry as a USB device

Hey got one issue.  I have Desktop Manager installed on my computer. Can you tell me how can I perform wireless (Bluetooth) tethering from my Bold to my computer? This blackberry desktop software has eaten entirely days of my life trying to get it to work.
