Tethering a BlackBerry Torch 9810

Does anybody know if I can tether a Blackberry Torch 9810 to a ThinkPad Tablet.

When I try in Bluetooth on my Tablet I can get them paired but I get this message "Paired but not connected".

Has anybody had any luck in doing this?

 

Thanks

That can be tricky:  I found the following link though.

http://btsc.webapps.blackberry.com/btsc/viewdocument.do?externalId=KB12544&sliceId=1&cmd=displayKC&d...

I've never tried this so hopefully it will work.

 

Is using the usb cable an option?  I've used tether before and it works:

I also think you can use the desktop manager use your phone as a modem: (might be the easiest option!)

A very thorough reply from Wolf359!  Smiley Happy

 

Before you do anything, make sure tethering is allowed by Rogers.  I would go as far as calling them and asking them directly because if it's not included in the TOS (Terms Of Service) of your monthly plan and they catch you doing it, they can cancel your service immediately.

 

 

Just something to think about.  Smiley Happy

Thank you for the response.

 

There must be something different about the ThinkPad Tablet as it won't connect. I contacted http://tether.com/ and there response is "the Thinkpad is not supported at this time".

 

I will continue to look for a solution.

Thanks again.

Thank you for your response.
I know they allow tethering to the Blackberry playbook, so I would think they would allow it to a ThinkPad Tablet. Trying to get an answer from Rogers is a very painfull process.
