    T-Mobile is *99#

    (Detailed instructions on how to use 8700 as a modem coming soon. If you have 4.1.1 DM, then there are a few steps to skip compared to setting up older models).

    BTW, rumor mill has it that Cingular will start charging extra for use as modem.

    I gave verizon a call and there is a $15/month fee for this service. No username/passwd required once service is started. This is not what I want to hear but at least I can stop trying to get it to work... Thanks everyone for your inputs.

    Re: How to: Connect BlackBerry as a tethered modem with laptop to browse the Internet.

    Anything new on these issues (cost/username/PW)? I'm a Cingular customer and am about to try to set up the modem feature.

    Thanks.

    Re: How to: Connect BlackBerry as a tethered modem with laptop to browse the Internet.

    I get an error message that I'm not getting a dial tone. So, am I supposed to

    (1) add the Cingular information, above, to the TCP screen on the BB that looks like this:
    APN: (what do I put here)
    Username for APN: (assuming put the info above here and in password)
    Password for APN:

    or

    (2) put that info onto the dial-up screen on my laptop?

    Currently there is no info under APN on the BB.

    Re: How to: Connect BlackBerry as a tethered modem with laptop to browse the Internet.

    Thanks, Hydn. I called my provider and they didn't have a clue. Do all Cingular users have the same APN, and do you know what that is?

    Also, is this still valid:
    Cingular Nextel:
    Username: (blank)
    Password: (blank)

    Cingular alternative:
    Username:
    ISPDA@CINGULARGPRS.COM
    Password: CINGULAR1

    Thanks!

    Password for APN: cingular1
    WAP Gateway IP: 66.209.11.61

    Yes, I've tried it! It works for me with my 7290 and Tmobile does not charge you to use your bb as a modem thus far if you have the unlimited blackberry internet they don't bother you, they haven't bothered me!

    Question Re: How to: Connect BlackBerry as a tethered modem with laptop to browse the Internet.

    Is there a seperate Log in for accessing the EDGE network on Cingular 7130c?
    GPRS is sooo slow on my laptop with my 7100g. Its not even worth it.
