How Can I use my PC keyboard & monitor when BB Bold 9700 is connected to my computer?

[ Edited ]

When I work at home, I want to connect my BB Bold 9700 to my PC and use my monitor and my keyboard to send text and emails.  How can I do this?

 

After a while, my fingers get cramped using they BB keyboard and there must be a way I can do this.  My razor came with software that connected my phone to my PC and you could see everything on your monitor and use your PC keyboard...it was awesome.  Surely, there is software with BB that does this.

 Yes, using the Liberty Key from Bayalink.

I went to their website and saw this and it's $59.99 plus SH = almost $80.  I was hoping that BB had a software download that you could use that lets you simply plug your BB to your PC with the USB cord and when people send you a text you can reply using a PC keyboard and/or view it on your PC monitor.  Do you know if there is such a software to buy or download without spending $80 on another piece of equiptment?

Nope, that is why I recommended that which I did which does exactly what you asked.

 

There could be something software oriented, try searching AppWorld and Mobihand.com
