I can't figure out how to tether my blackberry to my laptop to use as a modem? Read 1 suggestion on line did not work. Answered

I would like to do this so I do not have to pay for internet access for my computer at home - just run it through my blackberry and I have heard that it can be done pretty easily.

You need special software on the blackberry to act as a bridge between the wireless network and the computer. I can't recall it off top of my head. Connect the two with a usb cable, and the blackberry should show up as various devices - mass storage, human interface device, perhaps bluetooth device, and possibly a modem. It depends on your setup.
