    Hi All This is my first post on this excellent forum. I have had my Playbook 32g for a few weeks now and have loved every minute of it. I have been using Blackberry Bridge with my Curve 3G when I have been out and about which works very well but my question is if you can tether it to my Curve for internet use with Virgin Mobile UK? When I tried earlier on the Playbook Virgin UK is not on the list so I tried manually where it is Looking for APN,Username,Password. I have phoned up Virgin support but the weren't much use, in fact they hadn't a clue what I was talking about!

    You can try this. Don't have a clue if it will work.

    Virgin Mobile (uses the T-Mobile network)
    APN: goto.virginmobile.uk
    Username: user
    Password: leave blank

    I attempted to tether to my son's US (Sprint is owner I believe and it is CDMA here) Virgin phone with no success. He has unlimited data but not a tethering plan. As I understand it, the Virgin name is a lower cost service for whichever major carrier owns the regional franchise so you may or may not need a similar plan to tether.
