    Its called tethering to use your phone as a modem. Do a search for tether and you'll be good to go.

    Just beware when using this with AT&T. I've heard stories of them catching on to people that tether phones to laptops and giving them outrageous charges as a result. I've done it before with other phones like the Tilt and SE W810i, but I haven't seen where this can be done with the branded Bold yet, for Mac users.

    Default how to use blackberry bold as a modem

    I work for AT&T. You have to download communication manager from the At&t website and get AT&T to add the tethering package. You get free wifi at hotspots and it cost $60 bucks a month. Once you do that you can connect just like a laptop card. It will not connect without that unless you can find someone to bypass that with settings on your computer. I know that can be done with the curve 2

    thats funny, I called at&t twice and they quoted me $15/month. perhaps because I have the BES?
    If it is $60, why in the world would anyone do that when you could just get a broadband card for $60/month and no hastle tying up the phone lol.

    It's 50 for BIS with unlimited data and texting.

    60 is the same thing just with tethering added.
