    Can the BB7100g be used as a tethered modem?

    If so, is it an easy set up procedure?

    Thanks for any help.

    This is the set up for TMO so just substitute carrier settings.

    1. The 7100 must be connected to the computer by USB cable and the BB desktop manager must be turned on.
    2. Verify the modem settings. In the Control Panel open the Phone & Modem Options. On the modems tab, you should see a new Standard Modem on a new port. Click Properties: Advanced and add the following Extra initialization commands: AT+cgdcont=1,"IP","wap.voicestream.com","",0,0
    3. Close the Phone and Modem Options and the Control Panel. Create a new connection with Start >> Connect To >> Show all connections >> Create a new connection. 1. Connect to the Internet 2. Set up my connection manually 3. Connect using a dial-up modem 4. Check only the Standard Modem 5. Give the connection a name such as "T-Mobile GPRS via BB7100 USB" 6. The phone number is *99# 7. Connection for Anyone's use, or not. 8. Leave the username and passwords blank. Uncheck make this the default Internet connection. 9. Click Finish

    I did get it set up for Cingular. Slow as a dial up connection but it works.

    Thanks for the tips.
