    So do I have to pay anything if i connect my blackberry to my Laptop to access the internet even though I have the unlimited internet package for my storm? Thanks in advance...

    And if i do have to pay something, is there a way around it? like to make the blackberry just transfer internet data to my laptop's browser?

    Yes, you have to enable tethering mode (which you can do over the air the first time) and Verizon charges you $15/month for this privilege. Your only alternative is to try MobiShark, which purports to let you do this without the monthly charge, but it is $50/year or something like that.

    Depending on what data package you have, is what VZW charges you for tethering.

    BIS = $30.00 charge for tethering
    BES = $15.00 charge for tethering
