    If I remember correctly, you'll need a tethering plan from your carrier. I know that AT&T will hammer you money wise if you don't have such a plan.
    I have detailed instructions for AT&T customers that I pilfered from elsewhere if you want to try them.

    EDIT:
    I found this link on the BlackBerry site.http://btsc.webapps.blackberry.com/b...Id=1 0 1132277

    So, your iPhone is acting as the modem then? I'm not quite understanding your question. Probably not enough coffee yet. However, I did find a nice How-To searching the WEB. Read through this blog post and let me know if it is addressing what your asking.


    EDIT:
    just remember what I mentioned earlier, if you're using AT&T and they decide that you are using your phone as a router, they will charge you the most they can legally for a tethering package.

    I remember when the BB OS 6.1 was rumored back in the 1st quarter of this year that "personal hotspot" would be available. Since 6.1 turned out to be 7.0, personal hotspot has not been seen.

    What you are referring to is a mobile hot spot type feature. Unfortunately there are no such features for OS 7.0 and below. It is available on OS 7.1 for the 9900 you can take a look at some comments here:

    Leaked: OS 7.1.0.74 For BlackBerry Bold 9900

    Doesn't BB offer a Wi-Fi hotspot application?

    EDIT:
    OK, I found this info from a BlackBerry Technical Advisor, "You cannot use the BlackBerry smartphone as a wireless router for other devices. You can however tether it to a PC to obtain internet access. You will have to contact your wirless service provider regarding using your BlackBerry smartphone as a tethered modem."

    So, back to what I said in post #4: if you're using AT&T and they decide that you are using your phone as a modem, they will charge you the most they can legally for a tethering package.

    Well, if you mean can a BB connect via Wi-Fi then yes they can. Not sure I'm understanding your question though.
