Is there anyway to tether my blackberry 8703e as a modem through bluetooth to a windows XP machine? There are third party solutions to download to the blackberry, but they seem to work on Mac and linux....

Please let me know if anybody has done this.

Thanks

PD: I have sprint by the way, so no extra $15 charge.... ;-)

I have Sprint and I tether my 8703e to my laptop via the USB cable. I'm doing it right now. I looked around but found no way to do this via bluetooth. If you find a solution, please post it.

You can not. Rumor has it that this will become an option on the 8703e's if/when the carriers release the 4.2 OS for it

This is the third-party solution I was talking about (http://brainmurmurs.com/products/pulse/index.php). It cost $50 after a trial. I was thinking that maybe there is a free solutions to this.

Any opinions???

I can't believe more people wouldn't want this option...

Bluetooth tether will kill battery life.
