Yes, you can, but Cingular doesn't consider modem use as the "unlimited data" that's part of your BlackBerry plan. I believe they charge $30 add'l for that, but it can be done (on a PC - not yet on a Mac AFAIK). That (the price) is part of the reason I unlocked by 8700c and went to T-Mobile. No extra fees there for modem tethering, and it works just fine.
