tethering Blackberry Curve 8330

Is it at all possible to tether with the BB Curve 8330? My wife has this phone, and would love to tether.

TIA

Re: tethering Blackberry Curve 8330

Step 1

Install BlackBerry Desktop Software version 4.1 or later on the laptop or personal computer.
When you install BlackBerry Desktop Software, the drivers that enable the BlackBerry device to communicate through the USB port and virtual COM port are installed. The Standard Modem, which is used by dial-up networking, is also installed.
Note: If you are upgrading your BlackBerry Desktop Software from version 4.0 to 4.1, the required Virtual COM Port and Standard Modem might be removed during the upgrade process. If this is the case, re-install the BlackBerry Desktop Software 4.1 or later and choose the Repair option to re-install these components.

Step 2

Set up Internet APN.
1. Go to 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. In the Standard Modem Properties window, Click the Advanced Tab.
6. In the Extra initialization commands field, type the following: +cgdcont=1,"IP","<your Internet APN>"
(remove<>when typing in ur APN)
Example; +cgdcont=1,"IP","wap.cingular"
Note: If you do not know your Internet APN, or if you do not have an Internet APN, contact your service provider.
7. Click OK.
8. In the Phone and Modem Options window, click OK.

ATT/Cingular Settings
APN: wap.cingular
user name for APN: WAP@CINGULARGPRS.COM
Password: CINGULAR1
This is how I found my settings on my BB Curve - Options>Advanced Options>TCP. The APN will say, for example, wap.cingular

Step 3

To configure dial-up networking, complete the procedure that corresponds with the operating system you are using.
Windows XP Operating System
1. Go to Start > Settings > Network Connections.
2. Double-click New Connection Wizard. The New Connection Wizard opens.
3. Click Next.
4. Select the Connect to the Internet option. Click Next.
5. Select Setup my connection manually. Click Next.
6. Select Connect using a dial-up modem. Click Next.
7. If the Select a Device screen appears, select the Modem - Standard Modem check box. Click Next.
8. In the ISP Name field, type a name for your connection. Click Next.
9. In the Phone number field, type *99#. Click Next.
10. Indicate which users will have access to the connection. Click Next.
11. Enter the user name and password provided by your service provider. Click Next.
12. Click Finish.
13. In the Connect window, click Properties.
14. In the Properties window, verify that Modem - Standard Modem appears beneath the Connect using heading, then click Configure.
15. In the Modem Configuration window, clear the Enable hardware flow control check box and make sure none of the other check boxes are selected. Click OK.
16. In the Properties window, click OK.

Windows 2000 Operating System
1. Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel.
2. Double-click Network and Dial-up Connections.
3. Double-click Make New Connection. The Network Connection Wizard opens.
4. Click Next.
5. Choose Dial-up to private network. Click Next.
6. In the Phone number field, type *99#. Click Next.
7. Indicate which users will have access to the connection. Click Next.
8. Type a name for your connection. Click Finish.
9. In the Connect window, click Properties.
10. In the Properties window, verify that Modem Standard Modem is selected, then click Configure.
11. In the Modem Configuration window, clear the Enable hardware flow control check box and make sure none of the other check boxes are selected. Click OK.
12. In the Properties window, click OK.

Step 4

Connect the BlackBerry device to the computer and verify that BlackBerry Desktop Manager displays Connected. The device must be identified by BlackBerry Desktop Manager in order for the modem to establish a connection.
Important: BlackBerry Desktop Manager must be running for the tethered modem to function.

Step 5
Connect to the Internet using dial-up networking.
Note: During this procedure, do not operate the BlackBerry Browser or any third-party applications on the BlackBerry device. An active data session may interfere with the modem connection. Connect the BlackBerry device to the laptop computer.
1. Open BlackBerry Desktop Manager.
2. Click Start > Settings > Network Connections > <name of your new connection>.
3. Enter the user name and password provided by your service provider. (this should be saved there already)
4. Click Dial.

Re: tethering Blackberry Curve 8330

I guess it should? Which method are you speaking to? The one outlined by sprintgirl or the "tether" app? As for the app it would have to run an OS 4.5 and up if I remember correctly

Re: tethering Blackberry Curve 8330

just becareful with added charges with that method. BBs aren't so nice like WinMo to give us internet sharing so it would be like a full on tether, dialup modem which Sprint charges for and which, I've read, will be discontinued as an addon offer come June.

I have had zero billing issues using Tether and got it for half off so I'm satisfied.
