You can do it easily via BB desktop manager. Which version of it are you using?

Also, I think tmobile recently started a separate data plan for tethering. Don't know if you need to have one as well in order to tether.

Sorry to ask but what's a BB desktop manager? Do I need to download it onto my IBM Thinkpad, and if so, which website and corresponding link do I use? Thanks!

Yes, you need to install the software on your computer.

You also will need to contact TMobile and have then add tethering to your account in order for you to be able to tether your computer to your BlackBerry.
