BB Bold 9700 :: Sharing Laptop Internet Connection Using Bluetooth

Aug 24, 2010

Laptop: Acer Aspire 5002WLMi, Windows XP SP2
Smartphone: Blackberry Bold 9700
Network Device: Bluetooth, Wifi (ad-hoc not available for bold 9700?)

I am using my laptop for traveling and I use USB CDMA modem connection to connect to the internet. Recently my wife bought a Blackberry bold 9700 hoping that she could access internet without carrying her laptop while traveling with me, sharing the same connection from my laptop. I have been trying to use WiFi to connect my bold 9700 with my laptop using ad-hoc but it seems that bold 9700 does not support ad-hoc. Therefore I am trying another way to connect to the internet from my BB using my Bluetooth. I have linked my blackberry device through bluetooth and my laptop is currently connected to the internet.

I have been trying to use my wife's BB to connect to the internet using my laptop's bluetooth connection. But I could not get it to work. Before posting here, I have been searching everywhere on the web for a guide but I could not seems to find one. Could anyone guide me on how to share my laptop internet connection so that my BB could access the web using the same connection as my laptop? If bluetooth and WiFi doesn't work is there any other way? Using USB perhaps? In short: Laptop internet Connection > Share using ? and how? > BB's can browse the web without additional data plan.

BB Bold 9700 :: Bluetooth Music Streaming To My Laptop?

Aug 22, 2010

Hey, i recently got a new laptop and paired my bold 9700 to it. I'm sending it back and getting a replacement for it, so i haven't uploaded my itunes yet, but i was playing the music over bluetooth from my phone. I get this little popup control menu (See Image), but it doesn't actually allow me to control the music. Is there any fix for this, am i doing something wrong? If Necessary, i've got a bold 9700 (fromt AT&T) running OS, and my laptop is an alienware m17x r1, with win 7 home premium.

Nokia :: Sharing The Internet Connection Between 5800 XM And PC

Jan 24, 2010

I wonder if it's possible to share the existing internet connection on Nokia 5800 XM with the PC without internet connection?The setup is like this:

1. I have DSL Wi-Fi router in home

2. I have one computer which connects to DSL router using the USB Wi-Fi card - that's my primary internet computer

3. I use Nokia 5800 for wi-fi connection to router too

4. I have another PC which is audio DAW (digial audio workstation) and I don't want to dirt that one with any antivirus, antimalware software or any plug-ins required for using the internet.

Now, since there is a certain need to connect to internet with that DAW (mostly to utilize the web camera and make video calls without disturbing the rest of the family, since DAW is in the studio, a separate room), I wonder is it possible to use my Nokia 5800 in a way where I would just share it's internet connection with the DAW, so DAW would connect to internet with Nokia's connection? It isn't the same thing as using the smartphone as modem, it's an actual connection sharing, but I fail to find needed settings for such sharing on Nokia.I also wonder will the PC be at any risk at all since it would use internet connection of Symbian based system (the PC runs with WinXPSP2).

BB Bold 9700 :: Netbooks 3G Internet Connection

Feb 21, 2010

I'm currently travelling and it is cheaper to use a local '3' 3G dongle for my laptop rather than my phone. I was wondering what the easiest way to get my blackberry to connect to the internet using my netbooks (win xp) connection? I would like to use BB Messenger for free. There doesn't seem to be a easy way to do it, I've tried Bluetooth and ICS but with no luck.

BB Bold 9700 :: Internet Service Connection Failure - Cannot Access Email

May 19, 2010

I just got my new Bold9700 and am trying to set it up and failing completely. Part of this may be because I am in Costa Rica. The primary problem is that it is connecting to a WiFi network, but not to a BlackBerry Internet Service. I have a data plan, I am linked to a network here (called I.C.E), and I am connected to a WiFi network, but it will not open due to the lack of Internet Service connection.

My phone is apparently locked, but I am using a USA SIM card, not a Costa Rican one. Do I need to unlock my phone in order to connect to the Internet Server here? As a result of this connection, I also cannot access email or set up BBM.

Nokia :: N97 - Bluetooth Internet Connection

Jul 8, 2010

N97 with all software up to date, same as PC Suite.

I can do "Connect to Internet" (from the tools menu) when the phone is linked via the USB cable. When it's on the Bluetooth, the option "Connect to Internet" is greyed out and not available.

Even if I go Tools -> Options, when I click "Connect to Internet" to configure something, PC Suite shows "You must connect your device to be able to change settings".

Jan 13, 2010

I got a new BB 9700 Bold yesterday and having problems with setting up the sync for the calendar and the contacts which are on my outlook. My hotmail email accounts are working okay. The outlook is on my PC and is the front face for my hotmail accounts.

When I go in to the BB Desktop device manager - version 5.0.1 (latest version) , I go in to the configure option on the left and it lets me click on calendar> then I select outlook and it then lets me select 'finish'. However at this stage an error box flashes up saying 'no available message stores'.
In addition when I check the wifi config on the calendar and contacts icons on the BB device it will not let me select yes on the wireless connection for them.

BB Bold :: 9700 Won't Work With The Laptop At All

Jul 1, 2011

I have a Blackberry Bold 9700, and everytime i connect it with my laptop, it wud only 'charge' the battery. The laptop will not detect it at all. Not even device manager. I checked its 'settings>memory>mass storage support' and all of those but it won't work. Not even the Blackberry Desktop Software would detect it. You plug in and all it would do is charge. It has a memory card in it too.

I have tried restarting the phone, wiping the handheld, restarting system, changing the entire laptop. But still it work at all. I have also used a different USB cable (just in case) but nothing yet.

I was able to connect it with bluetooth but whats with the USB? My brother's iPhone works fine with the laptop and performs all functions properly. Just the blackberry Bold 9700 is screwing up somewhere.

I am using a DELL inspiron model and the OS is Windows 7 ultimate 32- bit.

IPhone :: Sharing Wireless Connection With It?

May 7, 2012

Ok I know how to do Internet Sharing to create a mini network from my MBP osx 10.6 that my iPhone 4 can use, but only when my MBP is connected to the internet via ethernet.

How can I do this when my MBP is connected wirelessly?

Why don't I connect from iPhone to the same wireless network that my MBP is connecting to, I hear you ask? Because I'm in a hostel and i've paid 10 bucks for unlimited 24hr wireless connection through a 'Global Gossip' internet card. This card seems to only allow one device to connect, and I've already logged on using my MBP.

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.7), 15"

BB Bold 9700 :: Gmail Will Not Delete An Account On Desktop Or Laptop

Jun 15, 2010

I'm a recent returnee to the Blackberry world, and I use a Gmail address as my primary address. I've noticed something, and this issue has been discussed in other posts, but not rectified to my satisfaction. If I delete an email on my BB, it does not delete on my Gmail account on a desktop or laptop. This can be incredibly frustrating. I tried using the Gmail mobile BB app, but it doesn't display HTML email, and my BB is used mostly for personal not for business. Maintaining an orderly email account is proving extremely difficult. I've had the DELETE ON: MAILBOX AND HANDHELD set both ways, and i've had the sync option on the MANAGE EMAIL ACCOUNTS submenu checked and unchecked, and it doesn't work any way i can set it.

It's a BB Bold 9700 on T-Mobile in the US.

My network provider says they did a network upgrade and all foreign phones are now unable to connect to the internet. They say their is nothing that they can do for me. Just before my ph was disconnected I tried to download the Blackberry App World Version Could this have caused the problem?
