That's odd because I just searched for tethering and found 15 threads about it. The BlackBerryFAQ link is in my sig and at the top of this page.

Did you try these steps:

Installed BB desktop manager
paired phone and computer via Bluetooth
Go to control panel (on your PC/laptop) -> internet options, add connection, select modem, select bluetooth, enter #777 for the phone number and the username/password you use to login to your Sprint account on their webpage.
Hit connect and you are good to go.

You don't seem to be giving much information here. People are trying to help and you give one line responses.

So, let's try to get some more information:

Do you have BlackBerry Desktop manager installed? What version.
What version of the handheld OS is installed on your BlackBerry (Options / About will tell you).
When you connect your BB to your PC, does desktop manager recognize it?

You did not answer any of the questions I asked.
In fact, all you've said is "it doesn't work" with NO DETAILS.

What isn't working (and saying "I can't get to the Internet" will not get answers).

Please answer the questions. Please. There are only three of them. Let's start there.

Did you scroll down the page at all? There are 6 or 7 replies there.
We cannot help you if you don't try to help yourself.

No one can do this for you -- it's up to you to read and follow instructions.

How are you connecting your BlackBerry to your laptop?

Any issues getting internet on BlackBerry's built in browser?
