Yes. Well, not WiFi, but via USB or Bluetooth.

You will need to have a tethering plan added to your Verizon account. Then you can do it through BlackBerry Desktop Manager.

The BB is not a wireless hotspot.

You can tether using your data plan and a tether package (if required by your carrier)

See the FAQ for directions.
