Get Bluetooth Tether Bridge for BlackBerry from Tetherbridge for $29. Works like a champ. No tether plan needed.
Unlike the native bluetooth DUN service of the BlackBerry, Bluetooth Tether Bridge for BlackBerry does not require tether support (IP Modem support in a more technical term) from the cellular carrier network. Such tether support from the carriers usually requires an expensive monthly tether fee for many. Bluetooth Tether Bridge for BlackBerry emulates a 2G/3G/4G cellular network with tether support on your BlackBerry to your client device by using the existing data service of your BlackBerry. As such, Bluetooth Tether Bridge can imply significant savings for many.
Unlike the BlackBerry Bridge app from RIM, Bluetooth Tether Bridge for BlackBerry also supports Playbook apps requiring direct TCP/IP for Internet access instead of just http, and therefore supports many more Playbook apps than the BlackBerry Bridge from RIM.
