Verizon wireless tethering

I am a new user of the 8330 and would like some info on using the tethering option to use a laptop in the car. I cannot get the same information from any rep I talk to at Verizon. While the 8330 is hooked up to my laptop, can I still receive phone calls? I just found out that the Broadband service is only $45 instead of the $30 I pay now for just the Blackberry. And this additional service can be started and stopped anytime. So I can start it when I go on vacation and stop it when I get home and it just reverts back to $30 for just the Blackberry. Also does the Blackberry and laptop have to be connected with the USB cable or can it also use a wireless Bluetooth connection if the laptop has one?

 

Thanks, Lloyd

Re: Verizon wireless tethering

Hi there!

 

Here is a KB that addresses all (I think) of the technical questions you have asked:

For the service questions, we must defer to your carrier.

 

Good luck!
