Question about Phone

I currently own the Blackberry 8830 World which allows me to use the phone as a modem for my laptop internet access -- through Sprint. I just wanted to find out if the new Blackberry Tour has the same type of feature.

 

Thanks!

Yes, you can use the Tour as a tethered modem.  You do pay for the capability if you're w/Verizon...don't know about the others.

Re: Question about Phone

Hi! Thanks for the response.

Is tethering -- through bluetooth capability?

 

Or can you connect to internet through USB cable?
