Exclamation Using my ISP dial up access on BB WITHOUT using PC Possible?

Please Login to Remove!

Been a Lurker here for a while until I finally decided to jump in.

I have googled this for a while and I want to make it as simple as possible to understand.

I have a Blackberry Pearl 8100 from Fido which does not come with any built in wifi receiver. VERY DISAPPOINTED in RIM for no Wi-Fi on this model but well I should have known better...

Getting the Data plan from Fido is unbelievably expensive and per minute use is just undesirably very expensive as well. I already have internet access with a great ISP (Yeah, I know, how is this possible? Just ask me) So FIDO Data plan is simply out of the question.

Since I do not always carry my laptop with me, and need to send an MS-Word or PDF document stored on my BB once or twice a week or so, from my Blackberry, this issue greatly affects me when I only need access for a couple of minutes to quickly get my work sent out.

What I need to know:

Since I have evenings and weekend unlimited minutes, How can I use my Blackberry to access dial up internet from my ISP to send an email attachment?

Again,
I do NOT want to use my BB as a modem or connect to the Laptop/Windows. I want to just use Dial up from within Blackberry to call in ISP dial up access and send my docs. Is there any such app?

The 8120 has WiFi. That's the current version of the 81xx series.
