Default blackberry ipod touch modem question

Please Login to Remove!

I managed to tether my ipod touch to my 9700 blackberry ( or is it the other way round? ) by using a the app Bluever

Basically I use the blackberry as a modem and can use the ipod touch to surf/download etc

When I am connected to the ipod touch the blackberry shows "modem" on the screen. My question is how would I be billed for this by MTN. I have a normal 750 package with MTN which includes unlimited internet access but I am presuming if you use the blackberry as a modem you enter a different kind of billing?Probably expensive and same as downloading? Any one know how this billing works

You may wish to check your carrier's policy on tethering. They will either ban it or send you a nice bill, if it is not included in your plan.

checked today and you right. There is a normal Blackberry internet service which is about R60 ( about US$9 ) a month and this is for unlimited browsing

but if I use it as a modem it is R20 ( approx US$3 ) per MB of data
