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

Yeah, I mean maybe someone can tell you what your options are with your service provider, confirm what vodafone rep's tell you and/or what you find from your internet search.

This is what I found from google

Ensure you blackberry is connected to your laptop via bluetooth, you will have to do a search for blackberry devices on either the phone or laptop. Once you have it connected, then these are the settings you will require below.

Bluetooth Modem Properties xxx8211; Advanced Tab.

Extra initialization commands: +cgdcont=1,"ip",""

On the Bluetooth Dialup Connection:
Username and Password are blank, phone number is: *99***1#

I'm on a $34.99 Vodafone blackberry plan with unlimited data, and the tethering consumes that data, so there are no extra charges for doing this.
The above quote fixed the problem
