    Question 8300 as modem for laptop

    Advertisement



    Anyone ever setup their 8300 as a modem (through bluetooth) for their laptop? Haven't done any research on it, just being lazy and thought I'd post the question here first...

    Thanks

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~you may want to sift thru the stacks about this one... There's lots of great info about this subject here.

    The short version is you have to be on a data plan that supports tethering. That will make you capable to connect. Then you connect your bb to your laptop via bluetooth and surf! Of course its a bit more complicated, but that's why you need to sift thru the info in the stacks. Hope that's helpful.

    Cheers!

    Thanks dude. I have a BES and data plan with Vodafone, so I'm hopeful... I'll do some browsing on the forum.

    I would look at the tmobile forum, stickied is a thread about tethering an 8700, the process is more or less identical to that of the 8700. I don't recall exactly what I did, oh yeah you do need the initilization strings i think they're called, they dont mention it until further down the thread. good luck pin me if you need any help, you can get it from my profile.
