I have a 7105t blackberry and I noticed that there is bluetooth on it and I am with t-mobile and I am always connected to the internet on my 7105t . I have also seen a bluetooth dongle you can get for your laptop and it will connect to a bluetooth device. Now the question I have is since I have always on internet on my 7105t can that provide the internet to my laptop like my 7105t being the gateway out for the laptop. I know you can use the 7105t as a modem but that is really really slow, so that is why I wonder if the bluetooth idea can work or if there is a work around to making it work.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

You can not currently use the Bluetooth on a BlackBerry (7105t) to access the Internet using your laptop.

The slow speed on the Internet when using a BlackBerry (specifically T-Mobile) is because their GPRS runs at 30-40 kbps TOPS, which is dialup speeds. Not worth it, IMHO.
