Default Tethering 8830 to a laptop for keyboard

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all, I was wondering if it is possible to tether an 8830 to a laptop so I can use the keyboard on the laptop to type on the BB 8830? My boss's fingers are fat and he wants to use his laptop's keyboard instead of the BB's keyboard. Thanks.

No, that's not possible. You can use the BB's internet connection like a modem for the laptop, but that's it.

I recommend this:
