Default using a PC as a Gateway

Please Login to Remove!

I have an 8700c that has no service whatsoever at my office. Does anyone no of a way that a desktop PC can be used as an internet gateway by a Blackberry device?

Thanks..,

If you don't have wireless data service it won't matter.

If you have a BES in the office, yes. (I can't recall the name of the app you install on the PC to do it - does routing to the BES, intended to save on wireless costs/loading when you're in the office). Works for mail, not sure about browsing.

If you don't has a BES, no, not as far as I know.

I think the problem is that it has to talk to the RIM Relay (even to use RIM's browser at least)

BESExpress free download from RIM. If it includes the blackberry router service, it would work for you.
