    Default tethering on the legendary 9000..

    So I know the 9900 can tether wirelessly via os 7..

    Anyone know of any way to do this in 9000? I know its probably about 3 years later of technology but I figured id ask. I didn't see any option in the os, I wonder if any apps out there will let me.

    I'm using a jsl hybrid

    The 9000 does not have the hardware necessary to support being a WiFi Hotspot.

    You might be able to tether via Bluetooth with the BlackBerry Desktop Software. But it likely will be slower than tethering via USB.
