Re: How to use Blackberry as Wireless Router?

if you have password protected your 9330 curve, disable this option in Security Options and then your phone should enter into Modem Mode and then provide Wifi via the PHS300 cradlepoint router.  I have successfully done this as of today.

We are talking about wireless modem funtionality, not tethering by a cable.

Not clueless as to understanding what the topic is about, I was just providing an alternative as this topic has clearly stated in several previous posts that it's inherently not possible w/ the BB devices.  I was however indicating an alternate work around that does convert the BB data into wifi w/ this device (PHS300).  Yes it does require the BB to be tethered to the PHS300 so in essence it not wireless persay as to the topic, but gives you wifi capability via the BB itself.

At last , OS 7.1 has the capabilities of making your blackberry into a wifi router! No need to use ibluever to tether your wifi only ipad. Got up to 3mb with 4G!

Re: How to use Blackberry as Wireless Router?

Thanks for the info.

Meanwhile i configured my bb9900 to sync calendar, contacts via bluetooth with my outlook/exchange.

If the wifi-router speed is as good as you write, there´s no need to change my smartphone.

I still hope, that the update zo os 7.1 comes asap.

Re: How to use Blackberry as Wireless Router?

No phone can do this. And to be honest if you dont like a blackberry then blackberry dont like you. Blackberry rely on all of its customers who believe in them. So if your just gonna bitch about it then. go get an iPhone and then i hope the autocorrect gets on your nerves

I'm not sure why you're telling us this.  OS 7.1 on BlackBerry phones allows users to use their BlackBerry as a Wi-Fi router with up to five devices (it might be more, I could be wrong).  Why are you telling us what the iPhone can do?  These are BlackBerry forums.  The initial post was asking how to use a BLACKBERRY as a Wi-Fi router.

 

If you have suggestions for BlackBerry users, feel free to post them.  Otherwise......................

 

We now return you to the BLACKBERRY forums.  Smiley Happy

Re: How to use Blackberry as Wireless Router?

Hi from France,

I am about to renew my fleet of 24 BOLD 9700 to TORCH 9860. Going through the forum makes me nervous because I need to be able to use my BB as Wifi Router. This function is now basic builtin every Android 2.2 phones.

Should I carry on to renew with 9860 ?
