Default Using BB as a Modem

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all,

Sorry if this is a retread--couldn't find anything via search... I'm heading up to my cottage for a couple weeks starting monday and I was wondering if its possible to use my Blackberry as a wireless modem for my laptop. I have a Bell (CDMA) data plan, and I'm thinking about bumping up the size of it just for this month.

Thanks in advance.
