Default using as a modem

I have tried to utilize my blackberry as a modem and it will not connect. I have Sprint service and the 8530 Curve model. Can anyone help?

What have you done so far to set it up?

Have you searched on "tether"?

Have you read our FAQ? There is an article there that might help.

I don't think Sprint allows tethering anymore.

Is yours a 8530 0r 8350? I don't think Sprint allows tethering either. I know mine doesn't now.

Also if your on a BES and the IT policy does not allow it that may be the cause. My company blocks tethering use.

If you buy the Tether program, and have an unlimited data plan with Sprint, you can do it and its allowed.

You need to have the 8530 and not the 8350i, and not have it blocked by IT Policy.
