    Quick question - does tethering a BB OS7 device via USB using BB Desktop Manager (on the PC) require BIS?

    I ask because I keep getting the error: "FAILED TO START MOBILE INTERNET" or "Initialization of Mobile Internet failed."

    And I don't have BIS.

    Thanks.

    I'm not sure, BUT likely it does. At this point BB7 is no longer supported by anyone, BlackBerry, or the carriers. BB10 also although that SHOULD work a little better. At this point your best bet is to move on to Android (get a KEYone!) or iOS.

    It should not. But also try the WIFI tethering to confirm. because i know WiFi tethering does not and you've eliminated a variable if you test that.
