Default Connecting my laptop to internet Via Tmobile Data Plan

Please Login to Remove!

Okay so I have a couple of questions in this regard. I do have an unlimited data plan for t-mobile where I pay $30 a month. I recently found out the amazing capability of connecting my laptop to the internet anywhere with my blackberry 9780 smart phone. My question is when I try to configure my mobile internet settings from my desktop manager it ask to contact my wireless service provider for profile information. I really do not want to have to deal with t mobile again as they may try to somehow bypass this feature in order to try to get me to buy some other plan.

Are there any tutorials that can guide me through this process for the 9780 phone? Thank you

Well actually I got the internet to work! It just gives me a message saying there may be additional charges to the data plan... Is this true? I have an unlimited data plan for t-mobile so does it apply for connecting the laptop to internet as well?

Your "unlimited data plan" provides you with "unlimited" data on your BlackBerry not on your computer. Tethering is separate.
