Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

Is it possible to get internet access on a blackberry without a wireless or gprs connection.

I would like to connect the BlackBerry device to my work laptop via the usb cable and use the network via the laptop. Is this possible?

Info:
-I am using a BlackBerry 8707g
-I have installed desktop manager on my work pc and am connected to the BlackBerry via the usb port, I would like to use the laptop's internet conenction.


Thanks in advance.

Let's logically think this through... How would the Blackberry get to the internet without wireless/GPRS/EDGE/EVDO/whatever? Magic? ;) Maybe I'm misunderstanding your question?

Yup. You need a data plan/carrier that supports tethering. Setup is fully detailed at Main Page - BlackBerryFAQ
