Yup, it is there.

Because they cut off the bridge functionality the same way they did on legacy OS, I no longer have BT tethering etc. i wanted to see if sideloading would work around this problem similar to downloading ota(many years of thanks rroyy).

For anyone else on at&t working around the bridge issue it is a little funky on creating a succesful pair. My succesful process(which I recreated to confirm test was accurate) was as theegoldenone said pull SIM, install bb bridge then do not just yank your battery. Pair the playbook while the sim card is still out and then shut the phone down with the power button before replacing sim

Does the method of removing the sim bring back text messaging/bbm/etc? I've got the playbook and I know this has been an irk of many PB owners. I just got the Z10 (knowing of the tethering limitations introduced), so just starting to set up my BB suite of apps, etc on the device.

Just wanted to ping this thread again. I found it for the first time last night (6/9/13) and got Bridge working using the no-SIM download method. I saw an update to Bridge this morning on World and did the same thing again just to be safe. Removed SIM, did update over wifi, and then powered down / replaced SIM, etc. Might be a good idea to always do this with Bridge updates on AT&T phones.
Additionally, upon reboot Blackberry World says I have the latest version, but it also says I have an Update for the latest version as well. I'm guessing this is some kind of AT&T specific copy of that version that wants to block my internet tethering to Playbook. Going to test later when I'm home.

Got problem solved. Had to delete app, reboot an then re-install following directions above. Worked great - thanks for the info.
Just updated to a Q10 and have the same problem. I originally donwloaded the BBridge from Blackberry World --- and got the tethering requirement notification. After reading this forum i deleted fromt my apps and took the SIM card out - downloaded the bridge/paired it / powe it off / then replaced the SIM and i am still not able to tether -- any suggestions?
