Default Tmobile-tethering

Please Login to Remove!

For work I'll be switching to BB on T-mobile vs. my current Verizon setup. I have my Verizon BB setup to tether w/ my laptop for travel (actually using it right now!)
Can I do this w/ T-mobile BB? I am trying to decide between the 8700 or the Pearl if that makes a difference as well.

Yes you can tether your laptop for no additional costs as long as you have the unlimited data plan.

yes, its $20 a month unlimited as long as you have a voice plan too. 20kB/sec download and 10kB/sec upload, roughly

Great! What software will I need for this? I have the unlimited data plan and 2500 minutes voice. Do you use this?

No software is needed besides the Desktop Manager that comes with your BB. Just search "How To Modem" to get: [User] HOWTO: Use BlackBerry As Modem For Laptop!
Follow all those steps and everything will work perfectly.
