    Hi, rennie welcome to the stacks! You can setup what's called tethering. Depending on your provider you might have to have a separate plan. See the Similar Threads section above your post for other information about tethering.

    I'm not sure about everyone else; but I know that with Verizon there is a 5GB limit to their "unlimited data plan" ~ If you have something similar to that, tethering your BB may reduce the amount of data you can view on your phone. I also know that with Verizon they have a package for an additional $30 which will allow you to tether your BB permanently.

    Though the only people who are going to be able to give you a straight-forward answer without any turns what so ever, is going to be your service provider. Good luck!

    Yes, before you start tethering I would definitely see what your provider says about any extra costs you might incur.
