i have a torch 9810 , and i was wondering if there is a way to make my blackberry to be as a router ?
i have also iphone 4s , and it has this feature where it acts like a Wifi , and othere devices can use the iphone data plan,,
wondering if there is such a thing for blackberry ?
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.
thanks for the info, but i didnt mean to connect it to the computer,
am thinking to connect it to the iphone . is it possible ?
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.
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.

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:
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.
