    I would like to know if its possible to tether my T-Mobile Blackberry 8120 (with unlimited internet) to my Toshiba Laptop. I have Googled it every way possible and I have researched here, and I dont see these combinations listed anywhere. If I can not use my 8120 as an internet connection for my laptop, which Tmobile product would I get the best internet connection from. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

    Hey Stephen,
    Thanks for the reply and link. Though there were some minor differences I was able to get to the part where it says it is dialing the phone, unfortunately, no account name and password I can think of will work, is there a special one, or would it be ok to check with Tmobile...as in do they actually permit me to do this without question or charges? Any insite is appreciated.

    I've been seeing this word "Tethering" for a while now on these sites. Does this mean you're trying to gain access to the web from your phone through a connection to your computer, or the other way around?

    Other way around. Your tethering your computer to your PDA and using the PDA's data connection to connect with from the PC.
