Exclamation Nextel as external modem [It works if you put SIM card in another phone]

Please Login to Remove!

Hi everyone. I am trying to figure out if I can use my Nextel Blackberry 7520 as an external modem on my laptop. Has anyone had any success with this?

I know, I have seen a bunch of them and I see conflicting answers to this. Does anyone have experience using their 7520 as a modem?

no you can't use the BB, you can how ever use the sim card in another nextel phone that would allow you to use it as a modem. Read this entire thread.
