    Before I begin I would like to say I tried to search but was unable to find what I was looking for.

    My question is, can u tether with the bold? I assume u can. I am using OS .266. If u can, how do u do it?
    Also will I be charged for the usage or is it part of the plan? I have unlimited gprs usage for my phone.

    Thanks.

    Ask your carrier:
    It depends upon your carrier.
    In the US one company (TM) is no charge, and ATT is charge ... but there can be work around's.
    (do a forum search on how to)

    Try TetherBerry app I have heard of it but never tested it so do so at your own risk.

    Using your Blackberry as a modem. So basically Blackberry to get internet on your laptop/desktop

    I don't pay for tethering on AT&T and haven't been busted yet. I've had my Bold for 6 months.

    Tetherberry works fine. With wifi available in most areas I am at, I use tethering v sparingly. Works well. Never needed to pay

    Not with Telstra in Australia...

    Just terribly expensive data costs (but that's standard with Anything Telstra)

    Guys, i have been tethering using ATT for over 2-1/2 yrs and have never been charged. I have 1st used my curve and now using the same settings for my Bold. Check out the settings on this post for ATT users>> http://forums.crackberry.com/f52/usi...ve-modem-3591/ it also should be pretty easy to figure out for other carriers using the same settings.

    Good Luck

    I finally got into the TetherBerry Mac beta and have been happy with it. I'm not using it a lot and will only tether when I really need it. I reccomend it.

    I followed the instructions above and compensated slightly since I've got Vista on my laptop...as I'm typing I'm in Tether-city!! Much faster than the card that I was paying $60 a month for services....
