    I think I know what you're saying...but no, hooking up your BB to your computer with a data cable will not let you browse on your BB. It only works the other way, with your computer browsing from your BB.

    Sure, if your BlackBerry has WiFi. No 87xx's have WiFi. Sorry. You need a data plan.

    So you're saying that you can use your blackberry as a modem? I do this with my cell phone sometimes but I've never tried it with the BB. Please clarify. Thanks.

    Yes Turbo. You can use ur BB as a modem by tethering it with your computer. You need to signup for a plan with your carrier though as they will require you to DL a special program onto ur computer to allow tethering to work.

    May I ask why you would want to do this? If you are already at the pc, why not use it instead?

    might be d dumb question, but this thread has me curious...so if you have the unlimited data plan on your BB, and no internet provider or access on your PC. connecting your BB to your PC will allow you to use the computers internet via your BB data plan? is that what you are referring to as tethering?
