I am using my BB Curve 8900 (AT&T) as a modem. Created a network connection which dials *99#. THis is working OK. I have a couple of questions :
- IS this the same as Tethering?
- Is this approach dialing a number, in other words, does it count as a regular call against my minutes?
- If tethering is different, then, does tethering use the data capability (INternet connection) of my BB, and if so will the speeds be greater than the current connection which is 115Kbps?
PS : Attached is the PDF on howto configure and use BB as a modem via Dial-up.
