    You can use any number of apps to tether your BlackBerry and use it as a modem, either via USB or Bluetooth.

    Before I switched to iPhone, I used an app called Tether. Worked great. I now use an app called PdaNet with my iPhone, which also has a BlackBerry app.

    You will definitely want to have an unlimited data plan to use any sort of tethering. These apps are set up to use your data plan, so if you have an unlimited plan, you should be good to go and Voda will be none the wiser.

    Not a whole lot that I can tell. They both do pretty much the same thing. I'd still be using Tether, though, if it was available for iPhone. I was involved in the initial beta testing of the app, so it has a special place in my heart.

    KG there is also an app you might want to check out called Fixmo Extend. I actually was one of the beta tester's for that and it was a pretty decent piece of software. Check it out; you should be able to find it on BB App World.
