Default I need help tethering BB Storm

Please Login to Remove!

Ok...I have verizon for a carrier, now I can tether my motorola (FOR FREE) with no problem but I cant tether my blackberry unless I use the vz crap. I know this can be done for free and I also know of a program, its something like tether for blackberry, they want a 1 time fee of 45.00, I am looking to see if anyone knows the name of that program.

Welcome to the forums.

It's called Tether

Have you tried using the Blackberry Desktop Manager? It now features a tethering functionality so there is no need for a third party app anymore. That's what I use and it works great.

You still need to have the service added from your carrier in order for this to work.

I installed the free trial of Tether today for use on a netbook with my Storm9500 and it seems to work great. I have a couple areas that I will use it where there is no wireless coverage.
