    How can I get my Playbook to connect to the internet utilizing my ATT Blackberry 9810 and the BB Bridge?

    I just got a Torch 9810 and have bridged to Playbook - so cool! My carrier is also ATT, and you need to navigate to RROYY - BlackBerry Bridge using the browser on your phone. Download the bridge version for your phone OS (mine was 7). Once downloaded to the phone, I ran it and it worked.

    Good luck!!

    ^^^^What they said! Also works with my Torch 9800, so long as you use the os 6 version.

    I looked at the list of operating systems, but can' determine which version of the bridge I should download. How do I find out my OS version?

    Since it seems that you have a 9810 and not have messed with trying to install 7.1 on it, go and install the 7.0 version.

    Options-device-about device versions. You should see a screen like my attached image.
    I am using 7.1.0.342. I would download the 7.1 version.
    If your using the official AT&T software it would be the latest 7.0 version.

    Great find! We need a work around for mobile-hotspot too. I was running it on a 9810 on Telus and it worked great to connect my playbook, my notebook computer, and my wifi enabled DVD player (sometimes at the same time).

    AT&T will require an extra subscription (why when data is not unlimited?) when they include mobile hotspot in their 7.1 upgrade (for the 9810) over the next few days. A workaround like this would be very helpful!
