Default Internet on 8703e Verizon

Please Login to Remove!

I'm looking to purchase the 8703e from Verizon (a return to blackberry after almost a year without it), and I was wondering - am I able to link this up to my computer and use it as a modem for internet access?

I'm sure the question has been asked before but a search rendered useless...any help is appreciated!

Soon to be Blackberry Owner...Again,
Nick

Usage counts against your data plan (better go for unlimited). There's also a $15/month "Broadband Connect" tethering fee.
