I have a 8820 and thinking about signing up for a blackberry personal package for the unlimited internet/html browsing what not. I want to tether it to my laptop to use that internet on my laptop will that incur any extra charge? Should I be able to do anything on my laptop and use the unlimited internet from my phone? I called once and a lady was nice enough to email me a link on how to set it up. I got the program set it up did a test run everything seemed to go through it was like a $5 test run since im paying as I go. I called back about 2 weeks later to talk to another guy he then told me no you hafta have a laptop connect card if u wanna use internet on your laptop through our network. I know you can call these people 100 times and always get a different answer.
Would the answer be that tethering my 8820 and having unlimited internet on my 8820 for the $30 a month or $50 with messaging would also allow unlimited internet on my laptop? I am about to go on a 13hr road trip on friday and need something to keep me busy heh. I did some searching, seen alot of people using it, but not a definit answer on it.
Basically I use my cell phone 99% of the time anymore. I started college so I am never home to use my DSL or home phone anymore while working 50 hrs a week and juggling a GF when I am home I am usually sleeping. So I need to find a good way to get rid of my home phone and DSL, but still be able to use my laptop to do my homework for school.
