Teathered modem


Jan 19, 2006, 8:24 PM
Does anyone know if you can use this phone as a modem for a laptop?

I was told by a rep at the Cingular store yesterday that the 2125 cannot be used as a data modem. They recommended the Blackberry 8700 (plus the $60 laptop connect monthly). I wanted to use the $19.99 SmartPhone Connect Unlimited w/Xpress Mail Feature.

i don't have this phone yet but am considering it. i could have sworn i read several reviews saying you could use it as a modem and it can be done via usb cable or bluetooth and it works with the 19.99 plan.

Your statement is correct. I occasionally tether via BT on my $19.99 plan without problems.

do you get charged anything extra on your bill for the data when you tether to your computer on the 19.99 plan?
i'm reading mixed answers on this on different forums. some people say you MUST have a laptop connect plan to do this or else you get charged extra. others don't.

In nearly 2 years, I haven't seen an additional charge on my plan for doing tethered data on my $19.99/month plan, so you can put me down as a data point for that group Very Happy

I've used my 6682 to do just this. No issues. Just don't let customer care know you do, cuz then they'll say you can't & charge you more.
