With my BlackBerry Bold, using Desktop Manager I was able to connect my laptop to the internet using my phone as a modem.
Does anyone know how I can do that with my Z10?
Solved! Go to Solution.

I did a test about 2 months ago. All three connections work great. The fastest was USB to laptop then HotSpot. Very easy to setup.

Yep -- USB works well too. The advantage of Bluetooth over Wifi, incidentally, is power consumption. If you cannot cable the phone (e.g. to a charger or to the PC) then the difference will be material in terms of battery consumption if you choose Bluetooth over Wifi. Wifi, however, works with pretty-much anything where Bluetooth obviously requires that capable for the other device.

If your carrier permits it you can find it under network connections in the settings panel, right below NFC.
