    You guys will have to excuse my ignorance but I'm still on 9900 waiting for ATT Classic.

    1. Can you use the Classic to tether to a PC using a USB cable or wifi?
    2. Does it require Desktop manager Or BB Link as it is now used for OS10 using the cable?
    3. With the Wifi option do you need to have mobile hot spot through your carrier to use it? If so is there a way around having to pay ATT more for the service?

    Thanks

    Yes you can if it's included with your plan.
    Not sure if it requires link but think it would.
    Yes it needs to be in your plan and I don't know of a way around it.

    You can create wifi hotspot and don't need any software on the computer to use it.
    No idea about the carrier thing - carriers in my country don't charge extra for that.

    There is an app called EasyTether on blackberry appworld that worked great on T-Mobile (They are very strict on hotspot usage). It only works through usb tethering (not wifi)..I've never tried through bluetooth

    If it's included in your plan. I think the OP has a grandfathered plan from the sound of it.

    It sounds like you need the wifi option on your plan to do this.

    Is there an alternative software that does work? I'm grandfathered in my old unlimited plan and can't change it.

    The software DOES work for tethering (at least for me on T-Mobile USA). I just meant the trial version does not work anymore as in the trial is expired.

    Got it thanks, too bad you can't just connect to the pc via usb and use it as a modem like my 8700
