    Have any one used a Black Berry pearl 8100 as a modem to acces internet from PC?

    If this is possible, please let me know how to do it.
    I live in a farm and it could be great if I am able to do it.
    Thanks for your answer

    If your not on tmobile make sure you call your carrier because I think verizon and Cingular both charge you if you don't tell them to enable it and add it to your plan.

    you'll have to contact sprint, and might want to let them know about you want to use it as a modem they may charge you if you don't tell them.

    To tether once a month, I don't think it worth $15.00 a month. I work night shift once a month, I would like tether while I'm on duty. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    I have unlimited data but I won't let sprint charge me an additional $15.00 per month just to tether one time a month. I know there are other ways besides sprint way. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
