Default how to use tethered modem

Please Login to Remove!

Hi Guys
I want to know about tethered modem feature. Is it working like normal? As normal I can connect internet using my any BB as a modem (my service provider give me the access and instructions). I tried it from my old 7290 but the speed was not good.
I want to know if tethered modem work same or need a saparate setup etc???

It will work the same, but it will still be slow unless you have EDGE service, which I doubt you do in Pakistan.

We're not talking about the 7290, we're talking about the 8800, which does support EDGE, however, the OP's carrier probably does not support EDGE.
