    ask me
    88xx can definatley be used as a tethered modem. the initialization strings will vary based on the carrier you may use for service.

    i believe it should be technically possible to configure dailup internet service an 8820 provided that your local carrier is able to give you the correct information.

    1. the extra initialization commands
    2. the apn
    3. the dail up access number.

    with the above mentioned information properly configured, you should have no problem at all using your blackberry as a modem on a prepaid sim (theoretically).
