Default BlackBerry As Modem For Laptop: Carrier - GrameenPhone, Bangladesh

Please Login to Remove!

Hi Bangladeshi Blackberry users,

Couple of months back GrameenPhone (GP) has launched their Blackberry services here in Bangladesh. Blackberry services are really great but sometimes we might all need to access Internet through our laptops! At least, I would.

After googling couple of minutes on Blackberry GPRS/EDGE modem settings for use on a laptop/pc, I felt that I'm pretty late on that :( Yes, Blackberry Pearl has to have an in-built modem. Otherwise, we couldn't have IP connectivity over that.

Links like "HOWTO: Blackberry As Modem For Laptop" and "Airtel India BlackBerry GPRS modem settings for use on a laptop " have shed plenty light to work on.

I believe that GPRS/EDGE settings for GrameenPhone (GP) is AT+CGDCONT=1,”IP”,”gpinternet” and it should work with Blackberry modem service too.

Please let me know if you had any luck using Blackberry with your PC over Grameen Phone as a carrier. You might have issues with "RIM Virtual Serial Port" drivers and other things. Your feedback will help Bangladeshi Blackberry googlers!

Please keep us posted.
