Default 8130 Verizon and shark modem

Please Login to Remove!

anyone have sucess with this software (shark modem by mobishark) in using the 8130 on Verizon as a modem for their laptop without the added $15 fee? I need this maybe 1 or 2x a month at most, so nice to have if needed.

thanks,

Larry

pretty sure, as this is posted by blackberry themselves, it would not work without the tether plan by Verizon. Just need to find someone who has actually done this. There is 3rd parth software called pdanet that does it for the samsung 760, just trying to find someone who has actually had sucess with the pearl on verizon

Why don't you just try the #777 method, if that doesn't work you can try a trial of shark modem.
