    BB 88xx as Modem

    Advertisement



    I just found out that Sprint offers an unlimited data plane for the BB8830 which includes the ability to use the phone as a modem. Does anyone know if Cingular is even close to offering this service for free for anyone that has an unlimited data plan with them?

    Ha! That's a good one.

    No -- you need a tethering plan for at&t and IIRC it's $20 on top of your current BB data plan. And that's after their price drop. In the past you had to have a $70/month BB tethering plan (though that was in place of your current BB data plan).

    Some people have been able to tether without the plan. I haven't. You also run the risk of getting billed (or getting billed down the road for all the tethering you've done) at the per-use rate which will make the $70/month plan seem like a steal.

    If free tethering is a priority you'll need to switch carriers.
