Using Smartphone as a modem

I can not use my blackberry as a modem because the service provider has blocked this service. Is there any way I can get past this?

Perhaps so, and you could get charged for the tethering.

 

Check mobihand.com for the application "Tether".

.....and it could void your service contract with your carrier, leaving you with a phone that won't do anything but add and subtract........so read your service agreement's fine print before proceeding!  Smiley Happy
