Re: hi

I assume you mean "set up my Curve 8520 for tethering".  Tethering is when you use your phone's network connection as a modem for a laptop computer.


If that's indeed what you're looking to set up, first download and install BlackBerry Desktop Software on your laptop.  You can find it at www.blackberry.com/desktop .  Next, connect your phone to your laptop with a USB cord and open BlackBerry Desktop Software.  In the very top left corner of the software, you'll notice Tools.  Click that and open Set Up Mobile Internet (or something close to that....I don't remember the exact words).



I hope that helps you.  Smiley Happy
