    Is it possible to use my BB8830 WE as a modem for my laptop when I'm not near an internet connection? My carrier is VZW.

    Yes, we do it, and it works great! Talk to your VZW rep about "tethered access." I believe it's an extra $15/month with unlimited data. You'll need to download the latest version of VZAccess Manager from Verizon's Web site. After that, it's basically a matter of installing the software, answering a few questions, connecting with USB, and rolling with it. Works great!!!

    mobishark is a $50 program that works with no monthly charges. I have Sprint and the fastest I've connected was 250k, I'm not sure how fast the carrier software will get you. Mobishark offers free trial

    Phil, why is the download sleep so slow? Sprint EVDO Rev. 0 promises speeds of 400-600kbps, so this is way below the suggested speed that you should be getting.
