    Confirmed working on Verizon Wireless using PDAnet. NOT using Tetherberry. PdaNet has unlimited free trial

    Heres what I did for Bluetooth method. Can be done over USB as well, but requires small software installation on your computer.

    Pre-Requisities: Smartphone with BT, valid data plan, and bluetooth notebook


    1) Install PDAnet BB app through here PdaNet -- Use your BlackBerry as a USB Modem

    2) Go to your Bluetooth settings and pair the device to your laptop/computer.

    3) Once your device is paired with your computer, you should be able to create a new dial up network. Create dial up network using Standard Modem over Bluetooth link. Please input these values

    Phone number: #777
    Username: leave blank
    Password: leave blank
    Click connect, you should be able to login

    If u have questions let me know, I can provide some help.

    I'm pretty sure calls will come through unless you are actively requesting a web page

    The phone will ring, caller ID will come up, data will flow.

    Answer the call on a CDMA/EVDO Berry and the data will cease to flow.

    I've used the Sprint system for data connection for years with my Sanyo phones (without any extra charges), but I was getting the Sanyo drivers from datapilot or susteen. Also, it only works on certain Sanyo phones like the 8200 and 6650 (check Datapilot.com, they'll tell you which ones). The above instructions worked for me perfectly. As an added note, the standard modem could not be queried until I had the Blackberry Desktop manager open (I'm using ver 5.0), then it was ok. Once I set up the dial up connection however, it hooked up fine without the desktop manager being open. I also was able to receive an incoming call while I was connected. Once you are set up and working, then you can change the name of the connection (in "manage network connections") by right-clicking the standard modem and naming it something like Sprint Blackberry, then once again right click it and select "create shortcut" to put an icon on the desktop. Thereafter, just double click the desktop icon and click "dial"--5 seconds later, you're online. BTW I'm running Windows Vista on my computer. Most of the above instructions seemed to fit Windows XP, but obviously even a newbie like me can adapt for the Vista system. Thanks much for the help.

    I'm having the same problem. Phone seems to connect fine, but when trying to open any web, internet explorer won't open it. I also have a BB8330 with Metro pcs.
    Any suggestions? Thanks

    OMG the instructions worked beautifully! Thanks Op

    But I'm curious - does tethering your BB use the carrier's data plan or voice plan?

    I have a Storm on the TMO network and keep getting a 6xx error saying the computer on the other end is not responding .. I have allowed the step set by RIM and here, my 8100 worked just fine till I tried teathering my Storm now I get the error code as with my Storm. I heard from a CSR tmo might get rid of teathering or have already, is this true?

    Apparently Sprint figured out and cut off everyone tethering for free...
    I downloaded and installed Tetherberry in minutes...runs great...
    probably will pay the $50....I need laptop access on the road all the time...

    Go to TetherBerry - Communication & Internet Blackberry Software and put in this promotion code, FP0011N3NBP64.

    It will give you about $10 off.
