Question Tethering on the Blackberry Bold??

Please Login to Remove!

Hey everybody. Now that we all have a 3G Blackberry, I'd like to know how to tether with it. I use my Treo Pro for tethering at the moment. Even the Treo 750 does it just as easily.

On Windows Mobile devices it's SO easy, with literally ONE-click tetherting. No DUN! No third-party app needed. No configuration of ANY kind.

That said, I don't mind if it's a bit more difficult, but I obviously want to make my Bold my primary device immediately. A friend of mine said it was a "bit more complicated" with the BB's...?

How do you guys do it?? I do have the need to tether from time to time. Don't any of you? ;)

Happy BB'ing everyone! The Blackberry rulezz! :D

USB Cable Method: Use Blackberry 8800 as USB Dial Up Modem | Matt Silverman

Bluetooth Method: Bluetooth

Not complicated. Those who says it's complicated assume it's harder since it's Blackberry. Common Assumption, even among my friends. They don't even have Blackberries.

I got a good speed on 3G with either the USB Cable or Bluetooth.
