Are you able to tether the Blackjack to a laptop and use it as a modem?

You will be able to but you just have to pay extra to do it. I don't know exaclty what will happen if you try it, but Cingular wants you to have a tethering plan for it...

I haven't tried it with a pda plan but last night I got it working with a straight dial up connection. Cingular connection manager doesn't say it's compatible, plus I tried anyway and it wouldn't ever detect the phone. I ran the cd that came with it, said "install samsung modem driver" clicked it.. always got an error saying it was already installed. I looked in phone & modem settings, found a "Samsung CDMA Modem".. "cdma??" Anyway.. I guess when I ran the active sync setup it installed it for me after connecting the usb cable.

Long story, I made a manual connection under network connections, just like you would for a dial up.
