Please Login to Remove!

Hi all,

I have spent hours trying to solve this and search to no end so please for give me is I missed this answer. I used the FAQ step by step but got stuck on he modem driver.

I am trying to setup my 8330 as a modem for tethering
BB says it has a modem
hxxp://na.blackberry.com/eng/devices/device-detail.jsp?navId=H0,C221,P883#tab_tab_features]BlackBerry - BlackBerry Curve 8330 smartphone
So I should be able to do this however when I try to install the modem driver I get an error saying the file doesn't contain the right info for my device. I have the most recent version of the desktop manager for my phone 4.3.0.17 please help.

Thanks!

Hey I currently use my BB as a modem, which is how i'm connected now.

The latest desktop software is 4.5 and you can get it from here.

If you need further instruction on setting it up you can go here.

Hope that helps

Also, make sure if you are on sprint that you are using smart view and not connection manager... just use it via bluetooth... its slower but that way it can charge faster while you're online
