Re: Tethering with the Blackberry Bold 9900

No, you can't use your BlackBerry to give your ipod phone service. If you have BlackBerry os 7.1 you can use your wifi hotspot to give the ipod internet then download a free app called TextMe. The app will allow you to make calls through internet on the ipod. You will have to watch advertisements on the app to earn minutes. You will have your own phone number for the app. You can use this app of of any wifi connection. But unfortionatly you can't transfer service to the ipod.
