    Make sure you have a good data plan or you will be paying through your nose.

    For mine, I simply plugged it in, using BB desktop manager, selected option, 'use as modem' and away I went.

    Remember tho, if you haven't got unlimited internet, only use for emergency - my companies homepage is nearly 2mb meaning a 500mb plan can get maxed in a hour or so

    Easiest way is with tether. Tethering for BlackBerry, iPhone & Android | Tether.com. One time charge and done.
