    I have a Blackberry with T Mobile and i heard somewhere that i can turn my Blackberry into a wireless hot spot.
    For example, i can wirelessly connect my Laptop to my Blackberry, how can this be done?
    Any info would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

    He won't be able to do wifi; the 8100 doesn't have that.

    Bluetooth... probably.

    It says Curve, but I believe it is the same for the Pearl.

    Didn't we just have a thread here about something like this and a device I had never heard of was mentioned called cradledock or something like that. It sounded interesting.

    It's called Cradlepoint and the device can do exactly what the OP wants. There are several models that will allow a tethered BB act as a wifi hotspot:

    CradlePoint MBR1000 Mobile Broadband Router [RT-MBR1000-B] - $249.99 : 3Gstore.com, Mobile Broadband Made Easy. Verizon & Sprint EVDO Modems, Antennas, Amplifiers, CradlePoint Routers and MiFi.

    If only that thing wasn't so expensive! 249 for a router! I'd love to try it.

    They have several routers, you just want to make sure you get one with a USB port to make the connection. Some are only for eXpresCards or PCMCIA, but most seem to support the USB. They even have a battery powered one so you can make a hotspot virtually anywhere you have service.
