Idiot Needs Help....How do I use a data card with tmobile?....
I have always admired the 3G AT&T and SPRINT unlimited data cards for surfing anywhere and would like to understand my options better with tmobile.
Here is my equipment list:
BB 8900 Curve
$19.99 Unlimited Data Plan
Lenovo X61s Laptop w/ Bluetooth
If I understand the previous threads correctly, my options are as follows:
Low speed option:
Setup/Tether a bluetooth connection with the BB phone and the laptop (wirelessly?). Complex setup initially. (Can somebody provide me with a link on how to setup bluetooth between phone and laptop for wireless tether)?
High speed option:
Remove Sim card from phone (incoming phone calls will receive busy signal instead of automatic voicemail) and put SIM card into Option icon 452. This device costs approx $180 but offers much higher connection speed. Is this correct? Will tmobile surcharge me for a higher data transmission? No setup required. No additional charges with Tmobile.
Do I understand this correctly?
Is there much speed difference between option A or B?
Thanks in advance for clearing up my confusion....
For option A,
Pair your phone then follow these directions.
Is that wired or wireless?
Pair your phone with your laptop via bluetooth then do the setup. The com port will be different but the setup is the same. It'll be wireless.
You also need to have desktop manager installed.
