  1. It’s not clear if this gets around carrier-blocked tethering (as Tether apparently does); too, the screenshots on the site indicate that they’re metering data. Does this mean once beta is done they’ll be charging based on transfer amounts? I worry that the phone companies may object to a third party selling service provider bandwidth to service provider companies…

    • Hi Marc,
      Good questions:

      1) This app uses the existing apn connection of your device, and does not require any additional tethering plans.

      2) The beta gives you 1000mb/month of data usage. You will not be charged at all – the app is totally free.


  2. Watch out Tether!!!!!

  3. I don’t see the benefit of such an app. Tethering can be setup with just a USB connection and DM running in the background. No additional software is needed. Also, it could be done over Bluetooth link, which doesn’t even require DM.
    I don’t know if it’s possible with every carrier, but it’s been documented to work with AT&T, who are usually very restrictive.

  4. DM worked just fine for me. I don’t see why I need more app just to use the bb as modem

  5. question I downloaded the trial version on my blackberry and when you first start it up it says email the app to your desktop well I put in the wrong email and I cant redo that how can I get this app on my laptop. I dont want it on my desktop but thats what the app says..
