This is my very first blackberry and would like to find out if I can use my tour as a modem. If so, how do I go about setting it up. I am a sprint subscriber.

Thanks for your help.

I don't believe Sprint allow tethering anymore (tethering is using your phone as a modem).

Yes, you must pay for tethering with Sprint.

I suggest you read the FAQ and also search on "tether"

Yes Sprint allows tethering except on the "Simply Everything" unlimited plans. The cost is a $15.00 buy-up. You can use Sprint SmartView 2.22 or BB Desktop Manager 5.0.1.

You might take a look at Tetherberry if you have a full data plan

Thank you the information. I do have the everything data plan with sprint right now. I will follow your suggestions and hopefully find a way to get this done.

Thanks guys.
