    Does any one know how to use their blackberry as a modem for the ps3? I travel a lot on business and take my ps3 with me and certain places don't have internet or wifi, so I wanna use my berry as a modem. Any help?

    If I was in your situation, I'd tether my 8900 to a laptop, and share the BlackBerry's connection using the laptops wifi. You could then connect the PS3 to that wifi network.

    Word of warning: the connection your BB provides is probably going to be too slow to do any kind of multiplayer gaming on.

    Could you do the same thing with a psp? Not online gaming either but use the wifi on the laptop, with the bb tethered? How do you get that working exactly?

    I've done this with my 8320 and Xbox 360. I don't see why you wouldn't be able to with 8900 and PS3/PSP. I did try playing online (Halo 3 I think) but it was unplayable. The lag was just too bad. It might be okay for web surfing or chatting though.

    wouldn't it be more easier to just use the wifi or ethernet connection at the hotel you're traveling too.

    Just guessing but where ever you're traveling too if the place has a tv then more than likely net access can be had very easily. (i.e. hotel, family member or friends home)
