Hi darlinski,

Thank u for ur prompt reply,..

I did try, and I did get connected to the internet,..

The problem is, my browser cannot browse..even though it is connected to the internet.

Was it because I got my bb from oversea and I can't use it in malaysia as a modem?

I'm having unlimited plan data.

Does your carrier permit tethering with your data plan?
