    Default How to use your Bold as a modem

    Thought these instructions may be useful. If you get it right, the BOLD home screen should look like the pic attached.

    1. Connect Your BlackBerry
    Make sure your BlackBerry is connected by USB cable, and your BlackBerry Handheld Manager is running (just launch BlackBerry Desktop to run it.) This is necessary for using the BlackBerry as an external modem. You cannot use Blackberry as a modem unless you have BlackBerry Handheld Manager running in the background!

    2. Verify the Modem Driver Is Functioning
    Go to Control Panel -> Phone & Modem Options. In the Modems tab, you should see a new Standard Modem on a new port (such as COM6 or COM11). Click Properties -> Diagnostics -> Query Modem. You should see the following:
    Quote:
    ATQ0V1E0 - OK
    AT+GMM - BlackBerry IPmodem
    AT+FCLASS=? - OK
    AT#CLS=? - OK
    AT+GCI? - OK
    AT+GCI=? - OK
    ATI1 - Research In Motion / BlackBerry IPmodem
    ATI2 - Research In Motion / BlackBerry IPmodem
    ATI3 - Research In Motion / BlackBerry IPmodem
    ATI4 - Research In Motion / BlackBerry IPmodem
    ATI5 - Research In Motion / BlackBerry IPmodem
    ATI6 - Research In Motion / BlackBerry IPmodem
    ATI7 - Research In Motion / BlackBerry IPmodem


    3. IMPORTANT SPECIAL CONFIGURATION STEP
    Click Properties -> Advanced and add the following Extra initialization commands with the appropriate carrier-specific APN Setting:

    For APN settings see Carrier APN Settings - ModMyiFone - Wiki

    Vodafone
    +CGDCONT=1,"IP","web.vodafone.de"

    4. Add a New Internet Connection
    Close the Phone and Modem Options and the Control Panel. Create a new connection with Start -> Connect To -> Show all connections -> Create a new connection.
    Quote:
    1. Click Next
    2. Select "Connect To The Internet" then Next
    3. Select "Set up my connection manually" then Next
    4. Select "Connect using a dial-up modem" then Next.
    5. Check only the Standard Modem (if prompted).
    6. Give the connection a name such as "BlackBerry Modem", then Next.
    7. On the next screen, pick one of the following phone numbers, depending on your carrier:
    If you use Vodafone: Enter phone number *99#
    8. Click Next.
    9. On the next screen, pick one of the following, depending on your carrier:
    ....If you use Vodafone:
    .........Username: vodafone
    .........Password: vodafone
    10. Clear all checkboxes ("Use...when anyone..." and "Make this the default...")
    11. Click Finish

    5. Disable IP Header Compression
    Make sure TCP/IP Properties (Advanced) "Use IP Header Compression" checkbox is NOT checked. To verify this, do these steps:
    Quote:
    1. Start Menu->Network Connections->"BlackBerry Modem"
    2. Click Properties Button
    3. Click Networking Tab
    4. Select "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)"
    5. Click Properties Button
    6. Click Advanced... Button
    7. Disable "Use IP header compression" checkbox
    8. Click all OK buttons to close all dialogs



    6. BES Configuration
    Skip this step if you are not on BES. You only need to follow this step if your company gave the BlackBerry to you. If you are at a company and you are on a BES 4.0, your Administrator must enable the "BlackBerry IPModem" setting on the BES. This is a new setting in the Version 4.0 of BES.
    .
    7. Surf on the Laptop!
    Connect to the Internet on the laptop by clicking the "BlackBerry Modem" icon via Start Menu->Network Connections. No username or password is needed.

    As per BlackBerry Search Results there's an extra setting, possibly, for T-Mobile customers.

    i don't need this, but i thought i'd say that it didn't work for me. it MIGHT be because i'm using a custom install of windows with a lot of stuff taken out of it.

    Cingular (Blue) = ATT
    You'll notice that some email communications from ATT actually come from @cingular addresses

    Does cingular charge for this? Also is there a limit on the amount of data you can use?

    Is there anyway your service provider will know you are doing this? Or will it just look to them like you are surfing the net from your bold?

    This entire thread is considering you pay for "tethering" right? Or can we do it without paying for that crap?

    this is known as tethering. you would need to check your plan if tethering is allowed or not.

    who ever is in the uk, im 95% sure that you will get charged for using your bb as a modem.
    A) because i have first hand experience of being charged for this.
    B) i work in O2 sheffield
    C) ive confirmed it with the customer services

    If you want to use your bb as a modem get a therring bolt on from your service provider which may be cheaper.

    That's because his post is over 4 years old! You need to call your carrier.

    Do you have a 9000?
