Tried configuring it but extra initialization commands won’t accept any form of input. What could be wrong? Kindly assist.
Process followed as advised. Still, connection can’t be made. What could be wrong? Kindly help.
Please do you have recharge units in your phone? As this method does not use data from your Blackberry Subscription Quota but rather you would be billed directly from the units on your phone.
No, I don’t. I’ll load and revert. Thanks a lot Sir. Regards.
You are welcome
The boss I greet u ..a guy told me dat I can not use my bold5 9930 to connet with my system ..wireless ..pls I need your help
If your phone supports tethering then you can. However, your network may charge extra costs for this.
Am tryna do it but not connecting

This thread heading is misleading. It should be ‘using ur blackberry as a modem (without BIS)’.
If one is charged seperately from their BIS subscription, it should be stated there. But over all, thanks for posting such a feed.
Please hw do I configure my 2go to work on my bb… I just need a kind of acess point… Please reply asap

Kool info man,, just one question.. Can u hav both a BIS plan and another seperate “normal” internet plan subscribed at the same time on a BB.. With glo or mtn?.
Yes. Perfectly yes. But then, whenever you want to use the other internet plan, it would mean you having to tweak your TCP/IP settings on your BB.
It’s not working. I’m I missing something?

I left dat n proceeded wt d diagnostics n xtra initialization commands(suceeded in enterin d commands). Wot’s d access point pls? Pls help. Merci
Pls wot’s the access point? I couldn’t querry modem. When I click on querry modem,I get a msg saying that my blackberry is not connected to d laptop. Pls help!!!
It worked perfectly. The problem im having is, they collect my call units. My chief, is there any other way to make it use my BIS? Pls help me out.
There is no way to use your Blackberry as a modem and make it charge from your BIS. It would only work using the units from your phone.
Your post Ĩ̷̊s misleading like someone rightly said, but Йợ̣̣̇̇̇τ̲̅ withstanding. ℓ̊ think your should find access point of glo blackberry α̲̅πϑ replace it with the normal glosecure that everyphone uses, den U̶̲̥̅̊ r charged from your bis. The big issue Ĩ̷̊s now what’s d APN
How can we switch from MTN BB to GLO BB?
Easy! Simply take out your MTN line from your BB and then insert a GLO line into it and subscribe.
I need configuration settings for glo on blackberry desktop manager, please
Hi, is it possible to connect via bluetooth and get charged from my BB dataplan? i have about 12gb and i cant seem to utilize it properly…..pls help.
You can’t use your BB connection on your PC or Laptop and get it to charge from your data plan
Pls hw do I uuse my Blackberry with an MTN sim crd as a Modem, the configuration process pls
Details coming soon. However, note that you would be charged from your credit and not your data plan.
This d0esnt w0rk!!!
Pls I use mtn for my blackberry. Would you kindly share T̶̲̥̅ђe̶̲̥̅̊ settings for mtn as well. Thank you so much.
good one, i wish u cam do d write up on the same page for mtn,etisalat, zain etc for easy access and saving all one page together. Im xpecting frm u. I have not seen d rest.
How about using the data plan for BIS instead of my units? It’s damn expensive!
Currently, there is no proven way to browse on your laptop or PC using your BIS Data-Plan
After subscribing to glo BB can I use d sim in a modem with d configuration dat u gave
Yes you can but your subscription would not count as you may be trying to ask above. Using your blackberry as a modem, you will be charged from the recharge balance in your phone.
Tnks am greatful
I lov it
Pls help unlock my MTN fastlink
IMEI : 357133038969794

Just bought Samsung galaxy tab 2 and would like to configure my blackberry as a modem to browse on my Samsung tab
You can’t. Get a sim and put into your Tab and subscribe.
Thanks Eta, but my Tab do not have a slot for Sim card. That is my problem.
Not all Tabs have 3G capability. You would checked this before you bought it. Your Tab must be the Wifi-only version.
Thanks Eta, but my tab do not have a Sim slot that is my problem. Is there any solution here for me?
Any idea of how to browse on your laptop using your BIS
Using your Blackberry with O.S7 and running on MTN BIS (full monthly subscription), you can broadcast your network as Wifi using Mobile Hotspot and browse on your PC or Laptop
Pls if i buy normal internet subscription on my glo blackberry will it work while my bis is still active and i connect it as a modem?
Sure it would
Please Bros, my BB manager CD is refusing to be install on my laptop. I am using BB touch. What should I do please? Or can anyone send me a copy through Mail?.
Sent from my BlackBerry wireless device from MTN
Just go online and download the software and also, by going online, you would also have the opportunity to get the latest version of the software
Thanks my real brother. I will try that. God bless.
Sent from my BlackBerry wireless device from MTN
Thanks for your good and prompt reply.Please listen to me , i beg :- I say in Jesus Name that May your light never grow dim. this will be the foundation of your light getting better and rising in Jesus Name.
My BB Touch is becoming slower and slower in opening browser especially when i touch or click an icon or browser and also in Opening Mails , what should I do to Clean it up? or what should i do generally? (ii) How do i find a good working Anti-virus for it and how should i install it.
You do not need an anti-virus for your bb. It would only slow it down further. Just backup your phone numbers and then do a Phone Swipe, it would reset your bb back to the way it came from the factory and would free you phone from all the clogged up apps and stuffs that is making it sluggish
please i have nokia e7 , and i am using netqin antivirus. but now my nokia e7 is also very sluggishly slow in opening, when i say sluggishly slow, i meant very very sluggishly slow. i have tried cleaning up with netqin, but still very slow, what should i do now?
Just backup your data and do a full phone reset. I believe you have too many applications in your phone and these cause even very fast phone to become sluggish
Dude, my friend uses his Bold5 mobile hotspot, connects to his laptop via wifi and browses via his BIS mbs. I use a Curve4 which also has d mobile hotspot function but instead of takin the Mbs, it takes ma credit. What can i do?
I am sure your friend uses Etisalat and most importantly, he must be paying the full BIS monthly subscription of N3,000 and not the N1,500 (monthly/weekly packages)
Pls can I use my Torch2 for hotspot without being charged from my airtime if I subscribe for the MTN full month bis?
Cannot say same for this moment as I have not tried it recently but up till few months ago; subscribing to full month mtn bis allowed you to use your blackberry as a hotspot and internet usage was then charged from your bis data-plan and not your airtime.
Please what is “hotspot” pleas and what & what are its usefulness?.
Please also, my tourch 2 does not download youtube video or too too slow to download video or Stream video for watching. I’m I d one that is impatient or there is something I needed to set that was not set .thanks. Happy new year. CK.
Downloading speeds are purely network dependent. Also, confirm to ensure that your 3G mode is activated. ‘Hotspot’ allows your broadcast your blackberry’s internet connection as Wifi and therefore your other wireless devices can connect and browse the internet using your blackberry’s connection
Well, I tried it & it didn’t work. Or is there any settings I need to change or maybe modify?. What exactly did U do when it worked, did U just subscribe and connected it or was there a process U followed?. Thanks.
Pls Eta, I trying to use my Blackberry subcription sim browse on my PC , can u pls help me with the confirguration settings, Pls respond
When ever I turn on my hotspot on my bold 5 my network signal drops down, what really the cause.
I couldn’t enter the Extra initialization command. The space wasn’t open for typing
