    I just want to hear what people thoughts are on using Blackberry Desktop Manager IP Modem option (free to use) or using the Tether App ($50). I used the the IP Modem option last week and it works great other than using T-Mobile's 3G data service which is spotty by me. Is Tether better to use?

    I like Tether. It is very easy to use, and reliable. The Blackberry IP modem option requires configuration, including some information from the wireless provider that I don't want to ask for, because my agreement forbids me from tethering my laptop to the BB. So I do it in moderation, and they don't notice.

    They both work good from what I hear. The one thing to keep in mind is if you're using DM ip modem your carrier might charge you by the MB unless you have purchased their phone as a modem plan. Some carriers don't even offer this.

    From what I hear tether fools the network into thinking that you are using your bb browser.

    I like Tether because of the reliability of the connection.

    Thanks devGod. at least i know i won't be charged extra this month. i got scared when everyone else said i get charged. I also found that it was easy to connect on a windows based PC. Vista to be more specific.
