Default Tethering with the Bold

Please Login to Remove!

Is anyone tethering with the Bold? What kind of connect speeds are you getting? I've tethered with my 8310 Curve, and got dial up speeds - 115.2kbps. I picked up a Mercury USB data card from ATT and I'm getting 3.6Mbps. Can I expect the same kinds of speeds with a Bold?

Thanks!

Is there a difference in throughput between tethering with Bluetooth and using a USB cable? I've tethered with my 8310 Curve using wired USB, any problems doing the same with a Bold?

I use the Bold, which is most likly why I have the higher speeds. (3g) I use a wire and an at&t plan. I am not sure how you are tethering.

Go to BlackBerry FAQ - BlackBerryFAQ and search the word 'modem' you should see something come up. Read that.
