    I have a BB Pearl - 8100. Can I use this as a modem for my laptop? If so, how do I go about doing so?

    Some carriers require that you sign up for a tethering plan. http://forums.crackberry.com/f3/how-...y-modem-19093/

    yes you can use it as a modem. Download the software from your carrier. And you will be able to tether via USB to connect to the net via the BB.

    Techsupport will walk you through the settings step by step.
