    How to: Blackberry as a tethered modem GSM carriers

    Connect a computer to the Internet using a GPRS, EDGE, or UMTS BlackBerry smartphone as a tethered modem

    Important: Contact your service provider to obtain the user name and password you require to configure dial-up networking. Also, ask your service provider if additional charges are incorporated when connecting to the Internet using the BlackBerry smartphone as a tethered modem.

    Task 1

    Install BlackBerry Desktop Software Version of your Choice

    Download DM

    When you install BlackBerry Desktop Software, the drivers that allow the BlackBerry smartphone to communicate through the Universal Serial Bus (USB) port and virtual communications port are installed. The standard modem, which is used by dial-up networking, is also installed.

    Task 2

    Set up an Internet APN.

    1. Click Start > Settings > Control Panel.
    2. Double-click Phone and Modem Options.
    3. In the Phone and Modem Options window, click the Modems tab.
    4. Select Standard Modem and click Properties.
    5. Click Change Settings.
    6. In the Standard Modem Properties window, click the Advanced tab.
    7. In the Extra initialization commands field, type the following:
    +cgdcont=1,"IP","<your Internet APN>"

    Note: The following is applicable for T-Mobile? customers only:

    The extra initialization command is: +cgdcont=1,"IP","wap.voicestream.com"

    Note: If you do not know your Internet APN, or if you do not have an Internet APN, contact your service provider.

    Click OK.
    In the Phone and Modem Options window, click OK.
