Default Tethering Questions for 8830 on VZW

Please Login to Remove!

Hello,

Two questions about tethering my 8830 to my laptop:

1) Am I able to receive/make calls while my 8830 is tethered as a modem to my laptop?

2) Is it possible to tether my 8830 to my laptop through Bluetooth? If so, how?

Thanks!

I use my 8830 for tethering and it works great, it you get a call it seems like it suspends data but resumes after you hangup.

I use the USB cable so Im not sure about the bluetooth.

You are able to answer the call but you can't surf and talk at the same time. Yet...........

You can also use the bluetooth but recomend the usb because it also charges the bb, bluetooth can put a drain on the battery when tethering.
