Yes it does
We were in sunny Florida for two weeks.
The Resort wanted $9.95 per day for service.
I said Nay Nay. We used tether and it worked great. Not good for Hi speed downloads or such but for browsing the net , email etc GREAT.
I am waiting for another sale to by a copy for the wife's 8300.
I too have been using this with Big Red...it is great since i am on call one week every 6 weeks...I saved money on the wireless card, and it comes in handy when on vacation. I had same prob in vegas...place wanted like 10 bucks a day...my friend had a sprint card and his browser was a lot slower than mine playing mafia wars on facebook!!
There are some configuration changes for VPN content, but they were very helpful in figuring out a workaround.
Overall, I love this product and a reason for me to stick with blackberry for a little while.
I was at a friends house last night and had some work to do involving a video conferance.
I found an unsecure wifi showing a weak signal and I plugged my teather into my laptop and ran a double connection.
The blackberry had a full signal as a mast was about 100 away but it was great, not as fast as at home but it worked a treat. I was on it for 1 hour 45 minutes in total.
Its a great tool.
Mind you I keep seeing posts for this update but mine doesnt want to update?
Since the Apple iPad has bluetooth support - can we use Tether with our BB to provide Internet access to the iPad (if we have the iPad with wifi but not 3G/AT&T)?
Bluetooth doesn't come into play with that scenario in my opinion. I don't believe you could create a bridge that would sustain a fast enough data exchange.
