Default BB 8130 as WIFI connection on an Ipod Touch?

Please Login to Remove!

Is there any possible way to make my Blackberry work as a WiFi connection for my Itouch?

Welcome to BB Forums.
The iPod Touch needs a Wifi access point to connect to; there is no way for the iPod to make a connection to the BlackBerry.

Ok, appreciate the help. I could see it working if the Itouch was bluetooth capable.

FYI, your 8130 doesn't even have a wifi receiver/transmitter. It is incapable of anything wifi.

Man - I misread it as an 8120. Yep, the 8130 doesn't have WiFi.
