    Hi all,

    I've searched the forums but most of the answers that I've found are dated 2007-2010 and dealing with older models of BBOS devices.

    I have a new Passport device and I'd like to use the Bluetooth tether option. After pairing the device with Windows 7 it seems I need to install some additional modem drivers (under device manager in Windows there's 3 Bluetooth peripherals listed with no driver installed). The only modem drivers I found on the BlackBerry website were from 2008. It seems odd that I should have to install a driver from 7 years ago. Am I taking the right approach by installing these old drivers?

    As a side bar, yes I could be using Wi-Fi hotspot, but I would prefer to use the lower powered Bluetooth radio to conserve battery power.

    Currently, I'm doing a lot of USB tethering, but it's cumbersome to constantly be disconnecting and reconnecting cables when I run into meetings. It would be more convenient if I could set my phone to start tethering automatically when plugged in.
