Re: App World not available when bridged

all the current models can support it, its the carrier that needs to enable it on your dataplan.

 

Contact your carrier to see what they support.

Re: App World not available when bridged

Thanks for your response.  Just got off the phone with Sprint and they don't support tethering.  It figures.  May have to find a different carrier.

Re: App World not available when bridged

My carrier supports tethering but disable it by default. You have to ask to have it enabled. Bell wanted more money to do this util they discovered that my plan actually covers tethering.

 

App World DOES NOT work when tethered, only on wireless, on my playbook at least.

 

Thanks to everyone for the input and discussion. Very helpful.

Yes that is correct, only on WiFi.

 

I did edit my posts earlier and posted this KB link as well. KB26774

 

The edits might not have been emailed to you depending on your subscription to this thread.

 

on another note, there are some new BlackBerry devices coming that will support a personal wifi hotspot that uses your dataplan that you could possibly use with playbook.
