Default BB Torch and data services

Please Login to Remove!

Hi Everyone!

I just got as new BB Torch and a really good data plan.

Is there a way to link the BB Torch to a mini laptop and use the phones data plan as a link to get out to the world? I can go with the USB cable or better yet, do the whole thing with the Bluetooth that both the phone and the laptop have.

Does anyone have any clue how to get the laptop to use the phone for internet data?

Cheers'
Dave

It is called tethering and you might need a special tether plan from your carrier.

Do a search on tether and read the FAQ.
