Default Re: Use Bluetooth Enabled BB Curve 8520 for Laptop Internet Access

The BlackBerry is capable of function as a modem and used with a computer for internet access. The term is tethering.
Thanks I wasn't aware of this term. I have learned something new and I believe this term will help when we do a google search to get better result for what we are looking for.

Whether you can do it, and the cost, depends on your mobile service provider.
Thanks for this advice

Desktop Manager includes the component necessary to tether
I see.

, but the feature is only present (or at least visible) if the mobile service provider allows it.

My advice is to talk to your service provider and ask if they permit tethering, and the cost.
Of course I will do that.

That's what I can tell you. Perhaps you will get some responses providing more detailed info relevant to your particular carrier, etc.
Do you mean the below quote ?
my ISP is Vodafone Australia.
Or there are other details ?? if so like what , then I can ask my ISP when I talk to them
