Default Using a Curve with my Laptop for Internet

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

Always find things a little small to see when Web browsing using my Curve.

Increase the Font size etc then it means Panning around.

Might be an obvious question but is there a way that I can connect my Curve to my Laptop when using the Internet so using the Laptop display?

I have unlimited Web time with my Orange package.

Thanks.

The BlackBerryFAQ has a world of information, including using your BB as a modem.

Doing this with a mac is pretty easy. I started to do mine but when I called t-mobile they took too long to get me on with a bb specialist that could tell me all the login info I needed to use it as a modem.

That is because you are on GPRS. If you switch to a Bold, it will be considerably faster.

Yes, but this question does not belong in this thread.
