I am not a Playbook user, but I think the only way to tether is to use a BB.

CALM DOWN - this forum is not associated with Research in Motion, the maker of the BlackBerry and PlayBook. It is privately owned and staffed by volunteers.

If it was up to me, I'd say you should return it and get an Etch-a-Sketch. Got it?

Wow.

The PlayBook is supposed to support tethering with any phone that supports bluetooth tethering. But I can't help. Don't do it and have never done it. (I bridge.)

My advice is do a search of knowledge base articles at blackberry.com and there find the generic possibilities. Next would be a user forum for the brand of phone, if there is one.

Once your Bluetooth is paired correctly and actively connected, you should be able to use internet tethering as if it was a blackberry.

Check for proper APN settings provided by your carrier.

Furthermore, based on my Google Searches, O2 has been very reluctant to authorize its users to use tethering. Are you currently paying for tethering, as it would appear a "Tethering Tariff" is charged by your provider.

Finally, complaining and yelling at the volunteers to keep you is a sure fire way to get your question NOT answered. Volunteers help out for their good of the community and are not in any way shape or form required to help you out. It's a shame when people feel so obliged that they xxxxx and whine about how they cannot get their free help they "deserve". If you really want help, call the RIM Technical Support and PAY for a troubleshooting call or contact your carrier. Take the free help BUT ONLY IF IT IS AVAILABLE.

You would think such common sense should go without saying.
