    Laptop web accesss using Storm's 3G ???

    I'm thinking about buying one of those mini laptops that have recently come out. I think I read somewhere there is a way that I can use the Storm to gain internet access with a laptop (using it like a modem maybe) - can anyone enlighten me?????

    Yup you can tether your BlackBerry which uses it as the modem on-the-go or if you need Internet. Although I have not done it, I have read good reviews on this app TetherBerry | The Web Anywhere and here is some reviews from its thread at CB TetherBerry - BlackBerry Forums at CrackBerry.com

    I use the service from Verizon (15 bucks/mo. on top of BES)
    In 3G areas, I can pull 1.6Mbps download speeds. Not bad at all IMHO!

    ..if it is a linux based netbook you will need a free program called Barry; I'm not sure if tethering for the storm is supported yet though (older models are).

    I compiled it for sync / backup on a linux desktop a few months back, but rumor at the time was that tethering wasn't supported for the storm yet.. I didn't try it (and still haven't).

    ..sync, backup, etc all works well on linux though!

    TetherBerry i heard works well but if u are using allot of data they may slap you with a huge bill. Someone on another forum used it and ended up with a $4,000 bill or so i belive just a heads up.

    If you want something a little cheaper you could try pdanet from JuneFabrics. I don't use it a whole lot but it was only $29.

    I used it a lot back with my old Motorola Q. Thank GOD I don't have to use that phone anymore!fftopic:

    PdaNet wiped my phone two or three times, so I immediately stopped trying to use it and use TetherBerry exclusively- for times when I need to tether. There have been reports at other sites about PdaNet wiping their blackberries too. So beware.
