Default BlueTooth Internet for BB8700c

Please Login to Remove!


Sometimes, when I am traveling, the signal strength is very bad or no reception at all. I configured the bluetooth sync between my laptop and bb8700c already and it is working fine. I want to find out if I can use my laptop's Internet connection to update some content on my bb8700c while the edge network is not available.

If anyone comes across something similar, please advise. Thanks,

There is no way currently to use the BT connection for Internet, or for any data transfer except syncing.
