Using my Blackberry Curve 8520 as a Dongle/modem

Hiya. 

I have unlimited internet on my Blackberry 8520 and have been told by Orange (my provider) that i can use my phone as a dongle for my laptop but i cannot for the life of me work out how to do it. 

Any help on this would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Hannah

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

 

Please carefully read what is linked in my post above. The use is not necessarily universal, and depends on several things, including your mobile service provider allowing you to use such a function -- not all data plans allow such use, but only your carrier can tell you if yours does allow for it.

 

Good luck!
