free internet when using mobile as a modem

Hi. My blackberry storm is on a contract and included is unlimited internet an email. But only through blackberry browser. When I use my mobile as a modem on my computer it charges me as if I was using internet on a phone withoutunlimited internet. Is there a way to use my mobile as a modem but without the costs...as I can't modify and send documents by only using blackberry?

Re: free internet when using mobile as a modem


it depends on your carrier subscription. For example Verizon users have to pay a specific subscription for being allowed to use tethered mode.
you can also look at an additional application called TetherBerry http://www.tetherberry.com/
