Does anyone know if you tether two T-Mobile Blackberry phones to a laptop if it will work and data will be be twice as fast, utilizing both data connections?

Don't think that works as more than likely the 2 devices are working independently. In order for it to be twice as fast the two devices would need to communicate with one another such that device A downloads part A and device B downloads part B (where part A + part B = the whole thing).

One tethered device would override the other. There wouldn't be any harm in doing it, but no benefit either.
1st Step in Troubleshooting: Do you have a BlackBerry Data Plan?
2nd Step in Troubleshooting: Pull the Battery.
