    From what I have learned is that depending on carrier you need to have a phone as modem plan that is seperate from your data plan.

    With Tmo it doesn't use your minutes, you just need a data plan which it works off.

    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 your APN)

    Example for AT&T; +cgdcont=1,"IP","wap.cingular"
    Example for T-mobile US; at+cgdcont=1,"IP","wap.voicestream.com"

    Note: If you do not know your Internet APN, or if you do not have an Internet APN, contact your service provider.
    I have listed some Wireless Carriers and their APNs at the end of this post.


    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.

    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.

    This depends on which carrier...if this is AT&T, you can have unlimited data and still need a tethering plan. Then you can use the AT&T connection manage software to use the BB as a modem. But like I said, this depends on the carrier.

    In the line +cgdcont=1,"IP","<your Internet APN>" do you replace IP with your carrier's IP address?
