I have a BB 7520 model. I am interested in obtaining software that will allow me to use my BB as my modem for my new HP laptop. Any suggestions on what to get or what to do? Thanking you in advance.

Welcome to the group!

I don't know answer to your question. Have a look at FAQ and maybe info you need is there.

I had a Nextel 7520 and it is very difficult to use as a modem. I used a 3rd party program called Shark Modem however it was pretty slow. It wasn't till I got my Pearl did native tethering work with any reliability
