Default BB7230 - GPRS Modem

Please Login to Remove!

Hi

I have just got a 7230 through work, think its a bit of an old model not really sure, and its on Vodafone UK. I would REALLY like to get this to work as a GPRS modem either in windows or OSX - Is it possible for this model to act as a GPRS modem?

thanks!

Here is a really good posting on how to get the BB working as a modem.

[User] HOWTO: Use BlackBerry As Modem For Laptop!

As you will read, out of the box the 7230 can not work as a modem. But there is third party software you can use.

oh right OK - shame about needing software as under windows this seems to show up as a modem but it does not seem to be able to do anything.

will look at that software you mentioned

thanks
